Olga Galkina, a Russian public-relations executive, contributed some of the most crucial elements to the now-discredited Russian dossier that Special Counsel Robert Mueller used to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Galkina worked with former British spy Christopher Steele to find compromising information on then-candidate Donald Trump.

One of the key pieces of information Galkina unearthed was that web services company XBT Holding S.A. helped to hack the Democratic National Committee in 2016.

XBT owner Aleksej Gubarev has denied any involvement in the hacking.

The Wall Street Journal has reported a messy dispute between Galkina and her former employer XBT, which led to her being fired in 2016. That's when Galkina blamed XBT's internet hosting unit Webzilla for hacking the DNC just a few weeks later.

Along with the hacking rumor, Galkina also helped to promote the dossier claim that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen secretly met with Russian intelligence officials in Prague in summer 2016 to talk about funding the hackers.

Mueller’s probe discovered that the Kremlin commissioned the DNC hacking to sway the election to Trump.
