If we listen a couple of seconds longer, Coulter specifies that it's about the "fusion GPS story", so it's about the Trump-Russia dossier.
Cost of the dossier
There are a number of claims out there:
- $168k paid by Fusion GPS to Orbis/Steel, according to Fusion GPS. This is the money - minus Steels salary and operational costs - that theoretically could have gone to Russian officials
- $1.02M paid by the law firm of the DNC and the Clinton campaign to Fusion GPS, according to Fusion GPS. This is the total cost of the dossier.
- $5.6 million / $12.4M paid by the Clinton campaign to Clintons law firm - this is likely where the following $6M/$12M claims originate. Clintons law firm likely performed other actions than only paying Fusion GPS.
- $6M/$12M paid by Clinton, according to Trump (who didn't give sources for the claim).
I was unable to find any source putting the number at 30 million, even unsourced claims by Trump seem to be $12 million at most. The only sourced claim I could find is $1 million.
Who paid for the dossier
The money paid to Fusion GPS did not come from the Clinton campaign alone, but also from the DNC:
People involved in the matter said that they would not disclose the dollar amounts paid to Fusion GPS but that the [Hillary Clinton] campaign and the DNC shared the cost.
How was the money used
According to the Fusion GPS co-founder, Steel didn't pay his sources.
The cost of the dossier was $1 million paid by the DNC and the Clinton campaign to Fusion GPS, of which $168K were given to Steel.
Even the unsourced high end guesses of the costs of the dossier are well below $30 million, and only a tiny fraction of that could have gone to Russian officials.
