President Trump criticized Democratic leaders on Monday for not being able to name the Republican who reportedly approved millions of dollars in funding that was given to Fusion GPS, which later created a dossier on Trump thanks to funding from Democrats.
“Report out that Obama Campaign paid $972,000 to Fusion GPS. The firm also got $12,400,000 (really?) from DNC. Nobody knows who OK’d?” Trump tweeted Monday morning.
A report from last week confirmed that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid $12.4 million to the Perkins Coie law firm. Obama for America gave $972,000.
Perkins Coie funded the dossier, but press reports from the beginning have said the anti-Trump project was originally funded by Republican groups, although they have not been named.
