Shailagh Murray, a former Washington Post reporter-turned-political operative, was serving as a top communications adviser to Obama while the Obama administration was reportedly using information from the dossier to justify secret surveillance of Trump campaign staff. Murray is married to Neil King, a former Wall Street Journal reporter who was hired by Fusion GPS in December of 2016. Trump tweeted Monday morning.
Failed vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine was defensive when asked by CNN Tuesday about the fact that the Hillary Clinton campaign, of which he was part, funded the Fusion GPS dossier containing explosive and unverified claims about Donald Trump and Russian Federation. Since April of 2016, Obama For America (OFA) has paid over $972,000 to Perkins Coie, records filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) show.
Fusion GPS is responsible for hiring a British spy to compile the disputed Trump-Russia dossier, which was funded by the Clinton campaign, the DNC, and Conservative news outlet "The Washington Free Beacon".
"The Free Beacon had no knowledge of or connection to the Steele dossier, did not pay for the dossier, and never had contact with, knowledge of, or provided payment for any work performed by Christopher Steele". The Free Beacon has agreed to cooperate with the House Intelligence Committee to help the Committee verify this assertion.

He added, the DNC paid Fusion more than $12 million, and it is unclear who exactly approved the payments.
A DNC official told Fox News that the current Chairman "Tom Perez and the new leadership of the DNC were not involved in any decision-making regarding Fusion GPS, nor were they aware that Perkins Coie was working with the organization". "And then when they chose to drop it, apparently we now know that some of the funds to continue the investigation were paid for by the Clinton campaign".
Podesta and Wasserman Schultz last month denied knowledge about payments when interviewed by congressional investigators.
Friday's report, however, may mean that he is now in the crosshairs of Steve Bannon, as back at the helm of the Breitbart news network he wages "war" on the establishment GOP he accuses of being out to derail the president's populist agenda.
