Billionaire George Soros and a group of wealthy donors from New York and California have paid $50 million to sustain an ongoing private Russia investigation conducted by former British spy Christopher Steele, research firm Fusion GPS, and a former staffer for Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
A footnote in the report states that Daniel Jones, the former Feinstein staffer who runs the Penn Quarter Group (PQG), told the FBI in March 2017 that he is working on a project with Fusion GPS that “was being funded by 7 to 10 wealthy donors located primarily in New York and California, who provided approximately $50 million.”
“[Redacted] further stated that PQG had secured the services of Steele, his associate [redacted], and Fusion GPS to continue exposing Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election,” the report continues, adding that Jones “planned to share the information he obtained with policymakers ... and with the press.”
Jones also offered PQG’s entire holdings to the FBI.
Waldman told senators that Jones relayed information to him in March last year that Jones was working with Fusion GPS and that the work was funded by a “group of Silicon Valley billionaires and George Soros.” Soros is notorious for funding far-left causes around the world.
Steele compiled the infamous anti-Trump dossier for Fusion GPS. The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee hired Fusion GPS through a law firm to conduct the research.
