After it was made public that Hillary Clinton’s campaign funded the “Trump dossier” containing misleading anecdotes about her presidential rival, the twice-failed candidate’s tone changed drastically regarding the man who now works from the Oval Office.
Here’s the proof…
From Daily Wire:
Clinton, who normally is brimming with anger when speaking about Trump, appeared much more subdued than normal.
“I also said that I thought we should give … a chance, we had to give an open mind … to the new President,” Clinton said. “And I meant it.”
“You know, I didn’t want everybody who voted for me just immediately going into kind of a defensive crouch,” Clinton continued.

Hillary’s campaign and the DNC broke finance law when funding the dossier, per Fox News:
The revelation that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund a salacious anti-Trump dossier last year is raising new legal questions for the Clinton team — with a watchdog group filing a formal complaint alleging they hid the payments from public view.
The Campaign Legal Center filed the complaint Wednesday with the Federal Election Commission, accusing the DNC and Clinton’s campaign committee of breaking campaign finance law by failing to accurately disclose the money spent on the Trump-Russia dossier.
“Questions about who paid for this dossier are the subject of intense public interest, and this is precisely the information that FEC reports are supposed to provide,” Brendan Fischer of the Campaign Legal Center said in a statement to Fox News.
The Washington Post reported this week — and Fox News confirmed — that the political consulting firm Fusion GPS was retained last year by Marc E. Elias, an attorney representing the DNC and the Clinton campaign. The firm then hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to write the now-infamous dossier.
According to the Post, that money was routed from the Clinton campaign and the DNC through the law firm Perkins Coie and described on FEC reports as legal services. The Clinton campaign reportedly paid the law firm nearly $6 million from June 2015 to December 2016, while the DNC paid $3.6 million, though it’s unclear how much money went to Fusion GPS.
Sen. John McCain (RINO-AZ) was the man who handed the dossier to then-FBI Director James Comey. He’s not saying whether or not he knew Hillary’s team was behind it.
PHILADELPHIA — Sen. John McCain may find himself facing serious questions following the disclosure that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research utilized in the infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump.
In December, it was McCain who notoriously passed the controversial dossier documents produced by the Washington opposition research firm Fusion GPS to then FBI Director James Comey, whose agency reportedly utilized the dossier as some of the basis for its probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
McCain’s office did not immediately respond to Breitbart News phone and email requests for comment about whether the Arizona senator was aware that the research he passed to the FBI was paid for by the DNC and Clinton’s campaign.
McCain’s office also did not immediately respond to a request for information on how he first obtained the dossier.
What a mess. Consider this an OPEN THREAD…
