Key Player In Steele Dossier Major Contributor To Hillary And Dems
A key player in the exposed Steele dossier gave thousands of dollars to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as well as other Democrats, according to Federal Elections Commission (FEC) filings.
FEC filings show that Democratic spin doctor Charles Dolan, who volunteered for Clinton’s failed campaign in 2016, has given over $60,000 to Democrats, including Clinton.
Dolan, who has bragged on his now-deleted Twitter account that he had worked on “every Democrat Presidential Campaign since 1980,” and that he gave Clinton $5,000 for her 2008 presidential campaign
The public relations executive also donated to climate envoy John Kerry’s 2004 presidential campaign as well as former President Clinton’s 1996 reelection effort.
Dolan who is also a board member of the International Foundation for Electoral Systems – has also given to the campaigns of both Democrat Virginia senators, Mark Warner, and Tim Kaine, as well as multiple House Democrat campaigns.
Dolan has found himself in the hot seat after British spy Christopher Steele’s attorney identified him as the unnamed executive who allegedly supplied information for the dossier in Special Counsel John Durham’s recent indictment of Igor Danchenko.
Danchenko’s arrest is linked to a federal grand jury indictment in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. Durham is charging Danchenko, a Russian citizen residing in Virginia, with five counts of making false statements to the FBI.
Danchenko is believed to be the sub-source for former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier that became the basis for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against Trump campaign aide Carter Page. The dossier was funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign through law firm Perkins Coie.
