Big League Politics reported on the revelation that Paul Singer, a hedge fund titan and Republican establishment figure, was integrally involved in Fusion GPS’ project to undermine President Donald Trump with false Russian collusion claims.
Virginia 10th District congressional candidate Shak Hill called for Comstock to return the $64,250 in political donations that she has received from Hill, including the maximum $5,400 she has taken from Singer this election cycle.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEPress inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.orgShak Hill Calls on Barbara Comstock to Denounce Dossier Funder Paul Singer, Return the Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars Donated by Singer to ComstockCentreville, VA – In light of the release of the Nunes Memo today, Shak Hill, candidate for United States Congress, calls on Barbara Comstock to denounce Paul Singer and return the hundreds of thousands of dollars he has donated to her campaigns. Paul Singer funds the Washington Free Beacon, the very same publication that funded the Russian Dossier against President Trump that was used by government officials exposed in the Nunez memo.Shak Hill issues the following statement:"What I am about to tell you is explosive and damaging, right here in our Congressional District.As you may know, Congressman Nunes, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee just released his memo regarding the Russian Trump dossier.“The memo says that Christopher Steele, a longtime FBI source who was paid over $160,000 by the DC and Clinton campaign, via the law firm Perkins Coie and research firm Fusion GPS, to obtain derogatory information on Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.” The memo continues:“Steele has admitted in British court filings that he met with Yahoo News and several other outlets in September 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS.Please pay attention to Fusion GPS. This is critical.According to the Washington Examiner article and other news sources, including the New York Times, lawyers for Washington Free Beacon “informed the House Intelligence Committee that the organization was the original funder for the anti-trump opposition research project with Fusion GPS.The article also says that quote, “billionaire Paul Singer, a major funder of the Free Beacon, strongly opposed Trump at the time of the opposition research project.”This connection is explosive and very relevant to the people of Virginia’s 10th Congressional District.Why?Because Paul Singer, the very billionaire that began the Dossier by funding the now discredited Washington Free Beacon, that in turn went to the Opposition Research firm Fusion GPS, who would then later hire Christopher Steele, this is the very same Paul Singer who is Congresswoman Comstock’s single largest individual contributor throughout her entire political career. To the tune of over hundreds of thousands of dollars, when it is all counted, including his bundling efforts.In light of the memo that was just released, I call on Barbara Comstock to denounce Paul Singer, who has donated to her campaign and organizations numerous times and denounce his publication, the Washington Free Beacon. The fact that Barbara Comstock would knowingly take money from such a disgusting individual who hates the President and hates conservatives calls into question her judgment and loyalties not only the Republican Party, but the now rule of law.Lastly, stricter adherence to the 4th amendment by the FBI would prevent this rogue behavior against President Trump and who knows how many other Americans.And less than a month ago, Barbara Comstock voted to continue these unconstitutional secret FISA courts. Unlike Mrs. Comstock, I will protect the 4th Amendment – and the entire Constitution and vote to end this secret practice!My name is Shak Hill and I need your help to make this information available to everyone in the 10th Congressional District."Shak Hill is a candidate for Virginia's 10th Congressional District, a businessman, and an Air Force combat veteran.###

Big League Politics social media coach Roger Stone first claimed that Singer was the Republican who put up money to kick off the project. The Washington Post confirmed that Washington Free Beacon, a Singer-funded outlet run by neocon Bill Kristol’s son-in-law Matthew Continetti, hired Fusion GPS to dig for anti-Trump opposition research during the election. The Free Beacon claimed that the dossier was written after the Singer-funded outlet dropped the project.
The Fusion GPS project was handed off from the Free Beacon to the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, which spent millions to fund Christopher Steele’s debunked Trump dossier. That dossier formed the basis for a FISA warrant to surveil Trump Tower for Russian activity.
Singer’s involvement proves that establishment Republicans — like those those who aided the failed third-party run of Evan McMullin — was involved with the same anti-Trump elements as the Democrats and Deep State conspirators.
