Daniel J. Jones
Daniel J. Jones is a former senior staffer to Sen. Dianne Feinstein on the Senate Intelligence Committee. Jones heads the Penn Quarter Group (PQG). PQG is funded by 7-10 Democratic donors from New York and Silicon Valley who donated $50 million. Jones also founded the Democracy Integrity Project. Jones used both groups to continue pushing the Trump-Russia narrative. PQG hired Christopher Steele and FusionGPS after Donald Trump's was elected to continue opposition research.
Jones is linked to lobbyist Adam Waldman for Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska who was offering Democrat Sen. Mark Warner access to former British spy and Clinton-Steele dossier author Christopher Steele. Warner was controlling efforts inside the legislative branch that impeded and undermined the executive; and Dan Jones was controlling efforts outside government to weaponize media and attack the executive.
Essentially, in 2017 Dan Jones, through his Penn Quarter Group, took over funding for Fusion-GPS and Glenn Simpson and kept paying Christopher Steele. The payments to these entities and Steele always looked more like a pay-off to keep their mouths shut. Jones was essentially the bag-man for continued Trump-Russia operations outside government.
