    Fusion: - GOP fake investigations exposed

    Great feature in the NY Times... from the men who run Fusion GPS (or should I say the "failing NY Times") - exposing republicans in Congress who pretend to be investigating the Russian Trump scandals but are actually turning deaf ears to inconvenient truths they simply have no political desire to pursue.

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

    Republicans have refused to release full transcripts of our firm’s testimony, even as they selectively leak details to media outlets on the far right. It’s time to share what our company told investigators.
    We don’t believe the Steele dossier was the trigger for the F.B.I.’s investigation into Russian meddling. As we told the Senate Judiciary Committee in August, our sources said the dossier was taken so seriously because it corroborated reports the bureau had received from other sources, including one inside the Trump camp.
    The intelligence committees have known for months that credible allegations of collusion between the Trump camp and Russia were pouring in from independent sources during the campaign. Yet lawmakers in the thrall of the president continue to wage a cynical campaign to portray us as the unwitting victims of Kremlin disinformation.

    We suggested investigators look into the bank records of Deutsche Bank and others that were funding Mr. Trump’s businesses. Congress appears uninterested in that tip: Reportedly, ours are the only bank records the House Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed.
    We told Congress that from Manhattan to Sunny Isles Beach, Fla., and from Toronto to Panama, we found widespread evidence that Mr. Trump and his organization had worked with a wide array of dubious Russians in arrangements that often raised questions about money laundering. Likewise, those deals don’t seem to interest Congress.
    We explained how, from our past journalistic work in Europe, we were deeply familiar with the political operative Paul Manafort’s coziness with Moscow and his financial ties to Russian oligarchs close to Vladimir Putin.
    Finally, we debunked the biggest canard being pushed by the president’s men — the notion that we somehow knew of the June 9, 2016, meeting in Trump Tower between some Russians and the Trump brain trust. We first learned of that meeting from news reports last year — and the committees know it. They also know that these Russians were unaware of the former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele’s work for us and were not sources for his reports.
    The last part comes on the heels of the George Popodapolous news that he was aware of the Russians having the Clinton emails as far back as April of 2016 long before the dossier ever was presented. This confirms that.

    This is well worth reading and completely destroys the last week of GOP excuse making. And lets hope it gets Chairman Grassley to release those transcripts so we can all read what Republicans in Congress are trying to ignore.

    Yes you are one hundred percent on the money. It shows how partisan and UNAMERICAN CERTAIN REPUBLICAN LAW MAKERS ARE ALONG WITH THEIR PAROTS ON FOX NOISE AND BRIEGHTBART AND SOME ON THIS FORUM. There is only one reason not to release the transcripts of the 21 hours of testimony as Chuck Grassley said he would do once the documents was redacted as it has been for some time now. They're chasing Rabbits instead of Bears as they did with NIXON. It's time to PUT AMERICA FIRST BEFORE THIS UNHINGED INDIVIDUALS GETS US INTO A NUCLEAR WAR WITH EITHER NORTH KOREA OR IRAN. WAKE UP! MY BUTTON IS BIGGER THAN YOURS. How presidential.

    Judge: House panel entitled to Fusion GPS bank records
    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...records-325396

    “The Committee also has intelligence suggesting that Fusion directed Steele to meet with at least five major media outlets to discuss his work on the Trump Dossier,” Leon wrote. “It is thus reasonable for the Committee to pursue records containing Fusion’s transactions with various media companies and journalists to determine whether they, too, had involvement with the Trump Dossier or with Russian active measures directed at the 2016 Presidential election.”



    Fusion GPS demands that their testimony be released, but their bank records ? No they fought to keep them out of the hands of the congressional committee.
    Well tough break Fusion GPS, a Judge ruled against you and the House judiciary committee will be pouring through bank records you fought so hard to protect

    Maybe Fusion will show their bank records if 45 will show his?

    Sounds fair to me.

    This was basically another **** trump post from someone who is well known for doing so.

    We have fusion GPS trying to do their best to make sure they aren't getting caught for anything that they have been doing. Which if I am going to guess, is plenty of crap at this point.
