Something that basically nobody is reporting—Fusion GPS, the researchers, are the ones who approached Perkins Cole, not other way around.
2/ The timeline is basically this:

-still undisclosed GOP donor (my guess is the Mercers) hires Fusion GOP to research @realDonaldTrump.

-after it becomes clear Trump is going to win GOP primary, the mystery GOP donor stops funding Fusion GPS, but Fusion has the research

-realizing that this research is both (1) important and (2) valuable, Fusion GPS reaches out to Democrats to see if they'll pay for it.

-Perkins Cole, the law firm representing Clinton campaign and Dems, is approached by Fusion GPS. Perkins Cole agrees to retain Fusion.

-By that point, a lot of the research **has already been completed** - but it continues through the fall of 2016.

-But then.... the actual research isn't released until *after* the election? This is quite strange. Why not release in October 2016?
8/ A suggestion from a reader: perhaps FBI intercedes and asks Fusion to keep dossier from becoming public. Seems possible to me.
