A nonprofit heavily backed by liberal donors was set up to combat “disinformation,” but new tax documents reveal the group paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in 2020 to the researchers who created the discredited Steele dossier.The Democracy Integrity Project paid $521,000 to Christopher Steele and $405,000 to Fusion GPS last year, according to recently publicized tax forms. “[Democracy Integrity Project] seeks to protect the integrity of democratic elections around the world primarily by engaging and managing a network of experienced organizations and individuals who work to uncover details, through research and data analysis, of efforts by foreign actors, including foreign governments, to interfere in democratic elections and to educate the general public about such activities,” the organization states on its 990 tax form.The tax form goes on to say that the nonprofit “reports original, credible, and fact-based information” and that their mission is to “educate the public on matters such as foreign election interference, global extremism, corruption, and coordinated disinformation.”
