The latest report from the New York Post has revealed that a “secretive Washington firm” which is apparently staunchly liberal and anti-Trump was behind the production and promotion of “Trump Dossier,” an unverified, so-called intelligence report on President Trump.
Fusion GPS, the firm behind the creation of the Trump dossier is now being investigated by the Senate Judiciary Committee. According to the New York Post’s report, the firm has so far refused to answer the Senate Judiciary Committee’s questions, and the committee has now threatened to subpoena the firm to get some answers.
According to Fusion GPS’ Wikipedia page, it is a “commercial research and strategic intelligence” organization. However, people have many reasons to believe that Fusion in fact operates as an opposition research firm. Sources have also told the Post that the firm is actually a supporter of Hillary Clinton.
“These guys had a vested personal and ideological interest in smearing Trump and boosting Hillary’s chances of winning the White House,” an unnamed source told the Post.
An excerpt from the Post’s report reads:
“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.
More, federal records show a key co-founder and partner in the firm was a Hillary Clinton donor and supporter of her presidential campaign.”
It was just recently discovered that Fusion GPS’ partner and co-founder, Peter Fritsch, donated at least $1000 to Hillary Clinton’s foundation as well as campaign. All of this was happening as the firm readied the Trump dossier.
However, many attribute the creation of the Trump dossier to Fusion’s long history of supporting progressive agenda and protection of those interests. Fusion was hired by the Democrats, in the 2012 presidential elections to allegedly do some opposition research against Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
Later in 2015, Fusion was contracted by Planned Parenthood to distract and attack pro-life advocates following the discovery of several videos which showed Planned Parenthood’s leadership talking about illegally selling fetal tissues that had been aborted.
The Post also reported that the Senate committee is looking into how much the FBI used the allegedly faulty dossier to support their investigation into the Trump campaign.
