A CNN correspondent falsely claimed the “Trump dossier” was funded by the ‘never-Trump’ Republicans.

On Wednesday, Evan Perez said the dossier was paid for by anti-trump Republicans first, and subsequently by the DNC and the Clinton campaign.

However, Perez reportedly has close ties with Fusion GPS, which is the firm behind the fake dossier.

Recent reports revealed ‘never-Trump’ Republicans did fund opposition research on then-candidate Donald Trump, but the work was unrelated to the dossier.

That research took place several months prior to the DNC hiring Fusion GPS to create the unverified document.

“Look, the fact is that the dossier was compiled as part of opposition research, first paid for by Republicans who were opposed to Donald Trump and then later on by Democrats and the Clinton campaign, people associated with the Clinton campaign who wanted to try to bring him down,” Perez claimed.

This marks the third time CNN has broadcast false information on the origins of the debunked dossier.

    Obama allowed Hezbollah to operate a
    multi-billion dollar cocaine distribution and money laundering scheme
    IN THE UNITED STATES to “soften up” Iran for nuclear talks.
    Operating in secret, the DEA mapped out the entire Hezbollah scheme.
    Every time the DEA attempted to take action against Hezbollah, the
    Obama administration threw up roadblocks. Look it up yourself and
    make your own decisions.

  • Lorie Barnett

    One must assume that some of the group that did oppo research on Trump from the Washington Free Beacon were never trumpers. So, his statement is not a falsehood. Also, a dossier is just a collection of documents. Most of the dossier has been verified. The part that hasn’t been verified are the salacious details about the strippers. But, when Trump’s bodyguard was questioned by the FBI, he said a Russian government person offered to send girls to Trump’s room as he and Trump were walking to his room. He said that Trump laughed it off. The bodyguard stood outside of Trump’s room for a short time then left. You can easily see that the opportunity was there for Trump to have called those girls to his room then. The dossier is not a fake document people. Don’t be so easily fooled.

  • David Bell

    Time,. Newsweek, and CNN.
    Formerly news to trust!!
    Now….GARBAGE.

    • WSWSapphire

      Yes. I remember sev. yrs. ago, seeing an article in Newsweek & later some in Time, and being surprised at what I was reading(though assumed it was a rare thing. However, it multiplied & during the last 2 yrs. at least, appears to be in overdrive re GARBAGE.) CNN… we all know that one(most of us, anyway). They could IRK me to no end, if I watched them.

      However, it DOES IRK me that they are exclusively broadcast in every U.S. airport that flies commercially, and in Int’l. as well, in any areas likely to have English-speaking viewers. The ‘gossip tabloid’ of TV news should NOT have even ONE single broadcast in airports, much less a monopoly on them. (I’m doubly-irked when I travel, as I have to each yr. & forced to hear them, as they are on high volume in hearing distance of every gate… even when using the highest-rated earplugs.) Can’t get away from the noise(though I do close my eyes w/my carry-on luggage locked & strapped to me & use it for a footrest while blocking out as much of ‘them’ as possible.)

      Hmm… just thought of something. Does anyone know who CNN’s advertisers are?
      (I’ve seen a list for msn). I need to write CNN’s sponsors to let them know how many people turn away from those broadcasts in airports. That is a significant number of people….

      • David Bell

        I remember well the gulf war and CNN ( Blitzer) who did a fantastic job!
        Time..was fact
        Newsweek..reported the NEWS!
        Now they’re all running Lefty opinions.

        • WSWSapphire

          That’s right… Blitzer used to be strictly reporting. I seem to remember he was captured for a few days, and when he came back, stated the hunger was the worst thing, and the 1st thing he ate was a choc. candy bar. I remember my parents having a high opinion of him… can’t stand him now.

        • whoselineisitanyway

      Why do you use MSM? Do y’all realize that mainstream is one word? There is nothing in this story that is false. A dossier is just a collection of documents about a particular person, event, or subject. It is the same thing as opposition research that is focused on one person. Gees people.

    Meanwhile CNN refuses to cover the biggest story of the year: the Obama Hezbollah drug running scheme. Obama blocked Project Cassandra: allowing the terrorist organization to make a billion dollars a year, funding weapons that killed American soldiers, fueling the drug overdose epidemic that killed Americans, and supporting the sworn enemy of Israel.

    Among them are Elaine Chao, Neil Gorsuch, Alex Esper, and Jerome Powell.
    Not only is Powell a member but he is also an Obama appointee.

        The left relies on that factor. For all the trumpeting, by the left, that Conservatives are “less educated than Liberals”, the left’s critical thinking skills are remarkably deficient.

        • WSWSapphire

          Yes, they do. Which is why I believe part of the reason trolls are deployed on this site; NEW viewers taking a look as they leave CNN & others. These trolls know their false ‘facts’ will change no current views here. They have less impact as pests, as well, since we can choose to block them from our view.

          However, trolls could potentially deter new people – but only if THEIR posts outweigh factual posts here. (As bad as trolls have gotten here by flooding… and oan upper rung likely unaware of some questionable ‘mod’ activity, therefore too many trolls left unbanned, it still doesn’t compare to the overrun anywhere else… MSM, Ytube, twitter, fox, etc. I hope to post a letter to those who may be unaware to address these concerns… when I get a chance.)

    Years ago CNN started out as a credible news source. Something happened and they are now the laughing stock of journalism. Even my liberal friends no longer trust them. They are more interested in personalities on camera than competence and integrity. They prefer self-absorbed puffery as long as it looks good on camera.

    CNN is the Baghdad Bob of journalism and even the libs now know it.

  • Scott

    CNN, NYT, CBS are part of the Democrat Deep State swamp they LIE, they create News and hope they can make it true they hate the President and this country SO much they want to destroy the institution of the Presidency through a fake impeachment. The Constitution gives the President stated clear powers but Liberals do not like those power in the hands of this President but in the hands of President Obama he could make up laws and said nothing wrong here.

    Propaganda is what they do not fakes, with truth behind them in good context NO they distort what is happening for their own ends liberal, Democratic to destroy the country. They are Marxist and with those idea they created Obama Care insurance where we are ALL subject to the IRS for China has nothing on the IRS. In fact China copy the IRS for control they very good and they are political not and will go after Democrat enemies if told to by the DNC, liberals and Democrats will protect them in congress.

    These media produce fake outrage and fake to cover up the Democrats corruption in DC and all around. They love illegals who will destroy this country like the MS 13 gang Democrats imported from South American.

    They are in business to keep feeding the Brainwashed liberal minds education has condition to believe what ever comes from them. Fake news, corrupt FBI, DOJ IRS and all of DC for they are run by lawyers who are immoral by learning but never moral. CNN finds it easier to get talking points from the DNC for much cheaper then having reporters and hire actors to report fake news for emotional outrage that has nothing real to it.

    They do not cover all the illegal crimes and lot of other things that are happening for their goal propaganda against the President. After a Year he has given it back to them and they will not stop until he is out of office but still they have destroy all the good things he did and will still go after him why they are Democrats. They did that to President Reagan until he died and now even democrats want be like Reagan he created a standard and that is the fear liberian minds have President in changing things in America away from Marxist views dumb views.

If a 2nd Special Counsel does get appointed, all of this bunch of criminals will run over one another trying to run into the tall grass to hide from their own Obstruction of Justice.

    Plain as day, but the fake news media and the Dimmocrats won’t talk about it OR touch it with a proverbial 10 foot pole. Because it doesn’t fit their narrative of attack on the duly elected President of the United Stares, Donald J. Trump. Their so-called “insurance policy” to keep Trump from winning the election as the corrupt FBI agent emails talk about, FAILED MISERABLY.
