What did she say?

Haberman simply pointed out that the Clinton camp had denied a report that was later confirmed about the Clinton camp providing the funding for the “Trump dossier.”

The explosive report from the Washington Post claimed that a Clinton lawyer hired a political organization, Fusion GPS, that then hired a former British spy to compile the Trump dossier.
