But this is an admission that he was giving raw reports to Perkins Coie.
With the impending election, it's a certainty that the Steele dossier raw intel was being fed to Perkins Coie, who then had the obligation to pass it to the DNC.
Something eliminates the Clinton campaign's denials that they didn't have the dossier/raw intel prior to being published by Buzzfeed after the election.
There was a contractual duty for the DNC to provide the Fusion GPS research/Steele dossier to Hillary for America.
HFA distributions to the DNC were still controlled by HFA.
Again, the contract: HFA controlled the research ops of the DNC and determined the scope/strategy/budget of all opposition research projects.
