For over two years, with the number of investigations into anything and everything having to do with President Donald Trump, both real and imagined, turning over every rock and looking into every nook and cranny where a speck of dirt might be found, let alone an actual crime, opponents of the current occupier of the oval office have been in hot pursuit of finding a way to negate the election that gave us this particular president.
The effort is so strong, that the people doing the investigations are willing to try any dirty trick in the book to get mud to stick to the Teflon Don.
That being the case, an infusion of “dark money” has been found going to the forces that faked the key – and according to Rep. Devin Nunes of California, the only – piece of evidence that prior to the election President Trump “colluded” with someone or something in Russia to affect the outcome of the election.
Fund for a Better Future (FBF) donated $2,065,000 to The Democracy Integrity Project (TDIP) in 2017, according to IRS filings reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
TDIP was founded on Jan. 31, 2017, by Daniel Jones, a consultant who worked for Feinstein, a California Democrat, when she controlled the Senate Intelligence Committee. Jones has disclosed to the FBI that he hired Fusion GPS and Steele, the author of the anti-Trump dossier, to continue an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
He also told an associate that TDIP operated as a “shadow media organization helping the government.” Jones suggested to the associate, Adam Waldman, that his TDIP team planted several anti-Trump articles.
As both of the groups named here, FBF and TDIP, have IRS designations of 501(c)(4), neither is required to disclose much about themselves to the public. Donor information can be kept quiet, and unlike a 501(c)(3) which is a far more open sort of non-profit, c4s do not have to diversify their funding sources or name them, for that matter.
Hence, the term “dark money.”
Someone out there wants this tale of Russian collusion to be real, and they’re paying big money to make sure that it comes true.
