Hillary Clinton Reportedly Didn’t Know About the Trump Dossier Until It Was Published

Following the WaPo report that the Clinton campaign and the DNC funded the opposition research which led to the Trump dossier, a new report says the candidate wasn’t even aware of it until it was published.

According to The New York Times, Hillary Clinton was kept in the dark about the dossier. Officials from the her campaign and the DNC said they were “unaware” that anyone funded the research and two associates of hers said she didn’t find out about it until Buzzfeed published the Christopher Steele-authored report earlier this year.

The Times also reports Clinton was “disappointed” that the research, along with the FBI’s investigation of potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, were not made public during the election despite the fact some of the dossier’s contents were being circulated in political and media circles last year.

An FEC complaint alleges that the DNC and the Clinton campaign violated campaign finance laws.
