Fusion GPS: The Republicans' Fake Investigations

E-mail Print PDF

Fusion GPS and the Russia probeA generation ago, Republicans sought to protect President Richard Nixon by urging the Senate Watergate committee to look at supposed wrongdoing by Democrats in previous elections. The committee chairman, Sam Ervin, a Democrat, said that would be “as foolish as the man who went bear hunting and stopped to chase rabbits.”

Today, amid a growing criminal inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, congressional Republicans are again chasing rabbits. We know because we’re their favorite quarry.

In the year since the publication of the so-called Steele dossier — the collection of intelligence reports we commissioned about Donald Trump’s ties to Russia — the president has repeatedly attacked us on Twitter.

His allies in Congress have dug through our bank records and sought to tarnish our firm to punish us for highlighting his links to Russia. Conservative news outlets and even our former employer, The Wall Street Journal, have spun a succession of mendacious conspiracy theories about our motives and backers.

We are happy to correct the record. In fact, we already have.

TVNL Comment:  This is a MUST READ for anyone who wants to understand how the famous Trump 'dossier' was obtained. The founders of Fusion GPS testified for 10 hours before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the dossier and its importance to the ongoing Russia probe.  Their testimony has been kept secret, until now.
