(National Sentinel)Â Election 2016: An expert from the Center for Security Policy says that the so-called “Trump dossier” bought and paid for by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee through Fusion GPS last year is much more than “just opposition research.”
His observations followed testimony earlier in the day by former unpaid Trump campaign foreign policy advisor Carter Page before the House Intelligence Committee on Monday, in which he denied there was any “collusion” between campaign officials. Page also said that all information contained in the dossier on him was false.
Asked if there was any proof of Page’s claims, Fleitz responded that he couldn’t prove or disprove them.
What he found “astounding,” however, is that “apparently, FBI investigations of Page were sparked by this dossier,” Fleitz said.
“This goes against the media narrative, the Democratic narrative, that this was just mere opposition research, that this is done all the time. No, it wasn’t,” he said.
“This was a foreign intelligence officer paid by the Democrats to work with the Russians to prepare a dossier to smear a presidential candidate from the other party,” he said, referencing former British spy Christopher Steele, with whom Fusion GPS contracted to produce the dossier.

“This is not ‘opposition research,’ and if they somehow got the FBI involved into investigating members of the other party…Liz, think what would have happened if Trump had did this,” Fleitz said.
Wheeler said if that had happened with Trump as president, he would have faced allegations that he used the power of government to help him defeat a political opponent.
