On the heels of an explosive report alleging that the Hillary Clinton campaign helped pay for that infamous Trump-Russia dossier, known in some circles as the “golden showers dossier,” two New York Times reporters have publicly accused Clinton’s campaign lawyer, Marc Elias, of lying to them about funding the research.

New York Times reporters cry foul over ‘Trump dossier’ pushback
Two New York Times reporters are calling out people tied to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee for denying the Clinton campaign and DNC’s role in the making of the so-called “Trump dossier,” following a report Tuesday that found they funded the research for the dossier.
“When I tried to report this story, Clinton campaign lawyer @marceelias pushed back vigorously, saying “You (or your sources) are wrong,” New York Times reporter Kenneth Vogel tweeted of Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyer Marc Elias.
“Folks involved in funding this lied about it, and with sanctimony, for a year,” Maggie Haberman, White House correspondent for the New York Times tweeted.

Have these journalists noticed that no one else is surprised by any of this?
