    Fusion GPS pens NY Times Op Ed

    The Republicans' Fake Investigations

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/02/o...usion-gps.html

    Founders of Fusion GPS pen and op-ed in the NY Times. They feel that the Republican Congress is leaking cherry picked information from their testimony while refusing to release the full transcript which they believe shows that the 24/7 hoopla over the Steele Dossier is unfounded...and that Republicans know that.

    This is par for the course when it comes to the Republican Congressional investigations though. Their actions are more about creating material for Fox News than actually doing their job.

    So the NY Times let democrat opposition research give their surely skewed version of events without any criticism? You believe them at face value 100%?
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    Then tell us why Grassely won't release the transcript of their testimony as he promised ? It's been over 6 months now.

    Interesting read. Thanks for posting it.

    I agree with them - Congress should release the entirety of their testimony so we can all read it and judge.

    Sounds to me like Fusion is trying to tap-dance their way out of the line of fire.

    I think I'll just wait to hear what Nunes has to say when/if the FBI gives him, today, what he has demanded.

    Why won't Fusion answer Congress' subpoena?

    More like Grassely attempting to keep 45's narrative alive.

    Considering that Fusion connived with Steele to gather and publish the debunked dossier details, it appears that Fusion is now sad and crying in its milk.

    Too bad. They should have turned Hillary's campaign away when they were approached to produce the bogus dossier. Now, they're getting their feet held to the fire and they're whining about it.

    An old saying is apropos here -- lay down with dogs, get up with fleas.

    Fusion is tainted with fleas.

    yeah he is not biased. But from the dossier at least we know Donald Gump might be able to pour piss out of a boot. It is the deep state against us...the Democrats, and the establishment Republicans want Gump out so they are conspiring against him. Wow it amazes me with the rhetoric that is pulled out of the Conservative media's arse. What is more amazing is the gumpers that believe it. They swallow it Bubba Gump and all. But I do like the progress: Dems and Repubs working together
