At The American Conservative, Pat Buchanan lays into the shady alliance of elites from the neocon wing of the GOP and the Democrat Party to smear Donald Trump. During the early part of the GOP primary season, a neocon funded publication known as the Washington Free Beacon, had been funding the research of Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm, into smearing Donald Trump. Once Trump looked well on his way to winning the nomination the Free Beacon pulled the plug on funding. That’s when the Clinton Campaign and the DNC stepped in to keep funding the “research” against Trump. Pat writes:
The Washington Free Beacon, a neocon website, engaged a firm of researchers called Fusion GPS to do deep dirt-diving into Trump’s personal and professional life—and take him out.
A spinoff of Bill Kristol’s Weekly Standard, the Beacon is run by Kristol’s son-in-law. And its Daddy Warbucks is the GOP oligarch and hedge fund billionaire Paul Singer.
From October 2015 to May 2016, Fusion GPS dug up dirt for the neocons and never-Trumpers. By May, however, Trump had routed all rivals and was the certain Republican nominee.
So the Beacon bailed, and Fusion GPS found two new cash cows to finance its dirt-diving: the DNC and the Clinton campaign.
We have Free Beacon neocons, never-Trump Republicans, the Hillary Clinton campaign, the DNC, a British spy and comrades in Russian intelligence, and perhaps the FBI, all working with secret money and seedy individuals to destroy a candidate they could not defeat in a free election.
