Antron, that is plain disinformation. We have public testimony about this. Fusion GPS was originally paid by the Washington Free Beacon for research on several republican contenders. That contract ended once Trump was nominated (actually a little before) and did not include any of the research by Steele that was in the Dossier.

Steele was not employed (neither was Nellie Ohr or Ed Baumgartner) until the Clintons and the DNC (and Obama Campaign fund) paid Fusion via a law firm. Note that the payment to Fusion via Perkins Coie and lawyer Marc Elias was claimed to be for "Legal Expenses" by the Clinton campaign, which it wasn't so the spending should not have been classified as such - just another little illegality that has never attracted law enforcement attention for some reason.
