Liberals scoffed and ridiculed Donald Trump when he claimed he was being spied on during the 2016 election.

Fines For Lying About The Anti-Trump Steele Dossier That Tore Nation Apart, Not Justice Many On The Right Want Or Deserve

It’s not the justice many on the right want or deserve – at least so far – but federal election officials are holding Hillary Clinton accountable for working with Kremlin operatives during the 2016 election.

The Federal Election Commission announced it was fining Clinton’s 2016 campaign as well as the Democratic National Committee for masking payments directed to a private intelligence firm through a renowned Democratic law firm.

Those payments to Fusion GPS funded the so-called Steele dossier, the report compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British spy, who turned to Russian intelligence spooks for dirt on Donald Trump’s campaign.

The FEC issued a ruling last week that found “probable cause” that both the Clinton campaign and the DNC violated federal election law by referring the opposition research project to “legal and compliance consulting” in campaign finance reports.

Overall, Clinton and the DNC paid more than $1 million to Fusion GPS for the dossier. Steele’s report, once it became public, was heralded by the liberal media and Democrats as proof that Trump was a pawn for the Kremlin.

The left relentlessly claimed that Trump was beholden to Russian interests who helped him cheat to defeat Clinton in 2016. Steele’s “intelligence” field years of never-ending assertions that Trump was an illegitimate president.

Then, the bottom fell out. It was revealed that the whole thing was concocted.

Last November, The Nation, one of the nation’s most left-wing publications, write a lengthy, detailed history of the dossier’s journey through the political system, and its use by the media, Democratic pols and the FBI to discredit Trump.

“While the media and political promotion of the Steele dossier was contemptible, its embrace by the FBI is an even bigger scandal. Rather than dismiss Steele’s work as a political hit job, the FBI used it as source material,” The Nation noted.

The Nation noted that when the FBI finally arrested Steele’s source, it turned out he was not even in Russia, but a Russian national who lived in Washington, D.C.

Recounting the madness it visited upon the left, The Nation remarked that the dossier actually helped Trump. As Steele’s “absurdities” and “inventions” fed “the fictitious Trump-Russia plot,” The Nation commented, the report also presented the 45th president with “the enduring gift of a conspiracy-crazed opposition” that would not relinquish its grip on the hoax no matter the strength of the evidence of Trump’s exoneration.

That was driven by the actions of Clinton and the DNC.

In a letter announcing its decision, the FEC notes that both the Clinton campaign and the DNC did not “concede” to the agency’s allegations that they violated federal law, but agreed to no longer contest the matter.

Accordingly, the Clinton campaign was fined $8,000 and the DNC $105,000. The FEC also consented to dropping pursuit of further allegations of wrongdoing by the heavy-hitting Democratic law firm that facilitated the scandal, Perkins Coie, as well as Fusion GPS or Christopher Steele.
