The same guy behind the infamous Steel Dossier that was released during Hillary Clinton’s second failed attempt at capturing the White House is also behind a new study claiming that “climate change misinformation” has ramped up on Twitter ever since billionaire electric vehicle (EV) guru Elon Musk took over the company.
Daniel Jones, a former FBI analyst who became a Democrat operative and “Russiagate” promoter, is the founder of an organization called “Advance Democracy” that recently published a study via USA Today claiming that the rate of “climate fraud,” “climate hoax,” and “climate scam” content jumped 300 percent on Twitter in 2022 as a result of Musk’s takeover.
A former staffer for Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein of “China spy driver” fame, Jones and his Advance Democracy group paid $140,000 in 2020 to Bean LLC, the parent company of Fusion GPS, for “research consulting” services. You may recall that Fusion GPS used that money to conduct opposition research on the Trump campaign between April 2016 and October 2016.
Public tax filings show that after being hired by Perkins Coie, a Democrat-linked law firm retained by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Fusion GPS produced the now-discredited Steele Dossier, which the Clinton campaign had hoped would derail the Trump campaign and help her win – it, of course, did not.
Previously, Advance Democracy had given Bean LLC more than $6 million to conduct other hits. The Jones-led group also spent $540,000 at a research firm called Yonder to spread disinformation during the 2017 Alabama special Senate election between Doug Jones and Roy Moore.
“We orchestrated an elaborate ‘false flag’ operation that planted the idea that the Moore campaign was amplified on social media by a Russian botnet,” an internal report from Advance Democracy reads, according to The New York Times.

It turns out that a driving force behind the Russia, Russia, Russia! talk that was blared at us throughout 2016 and 2017 stemmed from Jones and his work. And now the guy is spearheading a crusade against “climate misinformation” on social media – because apparently this is also part of the same leftist agenda.
Already, Jones and his group have published several reports about “online misinformation and disinformation” that have been published by the likes of Politico and The Washington Post to push the narrative that even just talking about election fraud and the various holes in climate mythology somehow constitutes “threats to democracy” – even though the United States is a constitutional republic, just to clarify.
“It is safe to say that anything this little clown says is a lie, and anything his scam factory is involved in is a fraud,” wrote a commenter about Jones and his work.
“What a lot of the ‘climate change’ folks don’t seem to understand is that the biggest influencer of our climate is the sun itself,” suggested another. “It’s absolutely of no use to try to stop it.”
Others joked that the same Democrats who are whining about free speech on Twitter today were the same ones telling Republicans to leave Twitter and start their own social media network back in 2021 pre-Musk if they did not like the direction the platform was taking then. To illustrate this point, one of them wrote about the hypocrisy:
“2021: It’s a private tech company and they can publish or censor as they see fit. If you don’t like it, go get your own social media site.
2023: How dare you!”
