President Trump accused Barack Obama's campaign arm of funneling nearly $1 million to the law firm that served as a pass-through last year between Democrats and an opposition research firm that produced a salacious and discredited 'dirty dossier' on the president.
Trump was extrapolating on a report in The Federalist, a conservative blog that found the payments from Obama's campaign to the law firm in federal election finance records.
'Report out that Obama Campaign paid $972,000 to Fusion GPS. The firm also got $12,400,000 (really?) from DNC. Nobody knows who OK'd!' the president tweeted on Monday.
The Federalist reported that since April 2016, Obama For America has made payments of at least $972,000 to Perkins Coie, a law firm with deep ties to the Democratic National Committee.
