How desperate is failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to get revenge on President Donald Trump for denying her the White House that she saw as her birthright? If a new report is to be believed, she’s even more desperate than anyone expected.
Edward Klein, the former New York Times Magazine editor who has written numerous books containing all sorts of juicy dirt on the Clinton Crime Family, has a new piece in the UK Daily Mail in which he makes a remarkable claim: that the former First Lady, New York Senator, and Secretary of State is using ex-campaign aides to privately negotiate with former British spy Christopher Steele to get a second report on Trump, a follow-up to his first Trump dossier that has been the source of so much controversy over the past several weeks.
‘Hillary’s people have been secretly in touch with Steele and are close to making a deal with him on opposition research that he claims has newly surfaced from his Russian sources,’ says a longtime Clinton adviser.
‘Steele didn’t release this information before now because it wasn’t available to him when he put together his first dossier,’ the adviser continued […]
‘There are many wealthy people in the anti-Trump ‘resistance’ who are more than willing to put up whatever money is necessary to get this new information,’ said a member of Hillary’s inner circle.
Hillary has informed Bill Clinton that once she acquires the second dossier, she intends to release it to friendly members of the media.
‘She’s convinced that Trump made business deals with Russians with ties to the Kremlin in return for a promise to offer the Russians favorable trade conditions,’ according to a source who was privy to her conversation with her husband […]
‘Hillary has said that she’ll do whatever it takes to make sure Trump’s ‘illegitimate presidency’, as she constantly refers to it among friends and campaign associates, ends in ashes.
Klein’s sources further claim that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, is “horrified” by this project, fearing that it’ll “blow up in Hillary’s face” when the new dossier is debunked, and potentially more damaging, that she runs the risk of being “called to testify under oath before a congressional committee how she got the new dossier.” Nevertheless, Klein’s sources, say, Hillary remains “adamant” in her crusade, and has aides including Huma Abedin encouraging her to press on.
As TFPP has previously covered, the first dossier was filed with ridiculous and implausible smears against Trump.It was the work of the Democrat-aligned smear firm Fusion GPS, and last month we learned that the Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee financed a substantial portion of the dossier, and did so through a lawyer as an intermediary to hide their role in its creation — a deception for which Team Hillary now faces a Federal Elections Commission complaint.
(The conservative website Washington Free Beacon originally commissioned Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Trump during the GOP primary, but Steele didn’t enter the picture until the Democrats picked up the project during the general.)
So how accurate is this new report? I personally have no idea, but I certainly wouldn’t put it past Clinton. She has been taking defeat anything but gracefully, after all. Still, time will tell…
