In an utterly surprising revelation, the firm behind last year’s (now debunked) Trump-Russia dossier has deep ties to – get this – the Democratic Party. Wow, I am shocked and appalled.
The Senate Judiciary Committee threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.
What is the company hiding? Fusion GPS describes itself as a “research and strategic intelligence firm” founded by “three former Wall Street Journal investigative reporters.” But congressional sources say it’s actually an opposition-research group for Democrats, and the founders, who are more political activists than journalists, have a pro-Hillary, anti-Trump agenda.
Fusion GPS was on the payroll of an unidentified Democratic ally of Clinton when it hired a long-retired British spy to dig up dirt on Trump. In 2012, Democrats hired Fusion GPS to uncover dirt on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. And in 2015, Democrat ally Planned Parenthood retained Fusion GPS to investigate pro-life activists protesting the abortion group.
These Stalinist show trials were started in part as a result this bullshit dossier, and now we find out the firm has been doing business with Hillary Clinton’s friends and allies? My only question then is this: when are the Republicans going to shut these investigations down?
