Fusion GPS is at the center of the Trump-Russia collusion narrative.
They were paid by Hillary Clinton to commission the fake news Trump-Russia dossier.
Now this explosive secret just revealed the truth about the dossier.
Bank records indicate Fusion GPS paid three journalists between June 2016 and February 2017.
All three of these members of the media reported on the Trump-Russia story.
But their names and amounts paid were redacted as part of records turned over in a lawsuit over the dossier.
Now House Republicans are trying to dig to the bottom of if journalists were part of a paid smear campaign to falsely implicate the Trump campaign in colluding with Russia.
The Blaze reports:
“The House Intelligence Committee is searching new evidence in its investigation into Fusion GPS and whether the research firm behind the infamous “Trump dossier” used the sometimes-inaccurate document to plant negative stories about President Donald Trump in the media.
According to unsealed court documents, Fusion GPS made payments to three different journalists between June 2016 and February 2017, all of whom reported on “Russia issues relevant to [the committee’s] investigation.”
The names, amounts of money paid, and purpose of payments were either redacted or not disclosed in the documents. Fusion has requested a restraining order to prevent the House Intel Committee from seizing records that would explain the payments, saying that the payments made to reporters were not relevant to Trump or the Russia probe…
… “[T]he Committee seeks transactions related to three individual journalists, [names redacted], each of whom have reported on and/or been quoted in articles regarding topics related to the Committee’s investigation, some of which were published as recently as October 2017,” the committee wrote.
Lawyers for the House Intelligence Committee also claim that Fusion GPS “brokered meetings for dossier author Christopher Steele with at least five major media outlets in September 2016, including Yahoo News.”
Media outlets have tried to suppress this story because the details vindicate Trump.
The dossier is fake news and the FBI and Department of Justice admitted that they have not been able to verify the key claims of collusion.
But reporting on the story will reveal media organizations willing complicity in spreading false information that was paid for by a rival campaign.
