According to former Hoover Institution media fellow Paul Sperry at the New York Post, a congressional committee investigating the “dodgy dossier” is being stalled by the Hillary-linked group that produced it AND the FBI!!
You remember the Trump dossier – it was leaked by Buzzfeed and contained the infamous “Russian hooker pee party” accusations against Trump.
A secretive Washington firm that commissioned the dubious intelligence dossier on Donald Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators trying to learn more about its connections to the Democratic Party.
The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.
Fusion GPS has strong connections to Hillary Clinton:
In September 2016, while Fusion GPS was quietly shopping the dirty dossier on Trump around Washington, its co-founder and partner Peter R. Fritsch contributed at least $1,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund and the Hillary For America campaign, Federal Election Commission data show. His wife also donated money to Hillary’s campaign.
Property records show that in June 2016, as Clinton allies bankrolled Fusion GPS, Fritsch bought a six-bedroom, five-bathroom home in Bethesda, Md., for $2.3 million.
Fritsch did not respond to requests for comment. A lawyer for Fusion GPS said the firm’s work is confidential.
And both GPS and the FBI is apparently stalling on producing docs to Grassley:
Senate investigators are demanding to see records of communications between Fusion GPS and the FBI and the Justice Department, including any contacts with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, now under congressional investigation for possibly obstructing the Hillary Clinton email probe, and deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, who is under investigation by the Senate and the Justice inspector general for failing to recuse himself despite financial and political connections to the Clinton campaign through his Democrat activist wife. Senate investigators have singled out McCabe as the FBI official who negotiated with Steele.
Like Fusion GPS, the FBI has failed to cooperate with congressional investigators seeking documents.
Well that ain’t right. How long are they gonna be able to do that? Again this is the kind of thing that leaves me mystified that Trump doesn’t do anything about. If the charges are real, they could be incredibly damaging to the Democrats – why isn’t he pushing on this instead of tweeting about fake tapes that don’t exist between him and Comey?
Sperry goes on to show the different ways in which the dossier was unsubstantiated, but intelligence agencies have claimed that some of it actually was (if this report can be believed). And one of the examples he uses, that Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen never went to Prague, was supposedly proved wrong when Cohen tweeted a picture of his passport – proving nothing.
However, if the insinuations in the article are right, it would be YUGE trouble for Hillary and her allies.
So there’s a lot here – I recommend you read the entire piece and come to your own conclusions. Or don’t come to any – that’s very popular these days…
