When Trump is reelected in 2020, will Dems realize we didn't ever care about him digging up dirt on Creepy Joe?
Hillary paid a foreign intelligence agency to make a fake dossier on Trump.

"will Dems realize"
Our liberal friends are not capable of realizing a single thing having to do with reality.

The Democratic Party paid for a private intelligence report written from June to December 2016 containing allegations of misconduct and conspiracy between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and the Government of Russia during the 2016 election.
An attorney for Hillary Clinton's campaign and the DNC separately hired Fusion GPS, a perfectly legal US Company to investigate Trump, something both parties do regularly. In June 2016, Fusion GPS subcontracted to Steele's firm to compile the dossier.
Christopher Steele is a British former intelligence officer with the Secret Intelligence Service MI6 from 1987 until his retirement in 2009. He ran the Russia desk at MI6 headquarters in London between 2006 and 2009. In 2009 he co-founded Orbis Business Intelligence, a London-based private intelligence firm.
Between 2014 and 2016, Steele created over 100 reports on Russian and Ukrainian issues, which were read within the United States Department of State, and he was viewed as credible by the United States intelligence community.
So trying to suggest this was some illegitimate foreign company, not one of the USA's closest allies, a trusted source, but some shady group who were out to lie about Trump is simply not true.
Especially when the claims made in this report have been proven to be true during the Mueller Investigation has been confirmed by all the US intelligence Services, who tell us this is still going on.
A report issued by high-ranking American intelligence officials in January of 2017 concluded that Russian operatives reporting to Putin interfered in the 2016 presidential election in favour of Trump. It was drafted and compiled by the CIA, the FBI and the National Security Agency.
The document stated that Putin “ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election” aiming to “denigrate Secretary Clinton” and showing a “clear preference for President-elect Trump.”
On July 3, 2018, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence issued a bipartisan report which asserted that the intelligence community’s findings on Russian meddling were fairly and professionally done and that more evidence had since come forward.
On April 27, 2018, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released a report written by the committee’s Republicans which found no evidence that the Trump campaign worked with Russia to interfere with the election.
But that report did find that Russia had tried to meddle.
In May of 2017, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate possible collusion between Trump’s campaign team and Russian officials.
In February 2018, the Justice Department indicted 13 Russian operatives and three companies on charges related to waging “information warfare against the United States of America” and interfering with the election to help the Trump campaign.
“In 2015, Russia began engaging in a covert influence campaign aimed at the U.S. presidential election,” it said. “The Russian government, at the direction of President Vladimir Putin, sought to sow discord in American society and undermine our faith in the democratic process.”
So how was this dossier fake?

No. Trump was the person who got dirt on his rival from foreign countries.

Just asking here - But, why would you pay an intelligence agency to make up a "fake dossier?" Couldn't you just hire some creative type to do that here?
FYI - Christopher Steele was initially hired by Republicans running against Trump.
Steele reported that there were some facts available and some unsubstantiated rumors.
Some of you never read the fine print or don't know what "unsubstantiated" means.

If he is re-elected, it will probably be because of Russia again.
