House Intelligence Committee and Fusion GPS reach settlement over bank records

House Intelligence Committee and Fusion GPS reach settlement over bank records”

Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, questions FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers during a hearing into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 us election, on Capitol Hill in Washington, March 20.

A conservative publication, the Washington Free Beacon announced late Friday it had earlier hired Fusion GPS to do research on Trump and other Republican candidates during the presidential primaries - but before the firm hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to do research that led to the dossier.

In a complaint filed with the FEC on Wednesday, the Campaign Legal Center, a nonprofit group that urges stricter enforcement of election laws, alleged that "at least some of those payments were earmarked for Fusion GPS, with the objective of conducting opposition research on Donald Trump".

Mr Rohrbacher recently met with controversial Wikileads chief Julian Assange, who told the legislator he had information to clear Russian Federation of charges alleging interference with the 2016 U.S. election. That is not in doubt. The Center for American Freedom was organized as a 501 (c) 4 and did not reveal its donors, but Singer was the sole funder of the site as recently as 2014, according to a Republican political veteran familiar with the site.

The Russian meddling appears to have benefited Trump. Now it's Hillary Clinton and the Democrats who may be the great colluders with Russians.

Obama for America began the payments to Perkins Coie in April 2016 - the same time the law firm hired Fusion GPS to look into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, The Federalist's Sean Davis reported Sunday.

"So I'm going to continue to do that", she said. "Almost by definition, opposition research is not objective".

In a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Washington Monday obtained by the Law Newz website, Fusion's GPS's lawyer, Josh Levy, alleges that members of the committee had leaked information from the investigation.

Released in January, this dossier alleged that Trump engaged in "perverted sexual acts" with multiple prostitutes years ago at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Moscow.

"John Podesta, who was Clinton's campaign chairman, and U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was the head of the Democratic National Committee at the time, as well as Elias "absolutely need to be recalled" to testify", Collins said in an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation".

Instead it became a cause célèbre.

James Comey, the former FBI director whose firing by Trump prompted the appointment of a special counsel, Robert Mueller, to oversee the Justice Department's Russian Federation investigation, received a copy of the memos after Election Day from Sen. That's what prosecutors are paid to do: Turn over every stone.

But what is definitely unusual is how Hillary and the Democrats got caught at it after months of posing as virginal innocents trying to make a case that Donald Trump was the great colluder with the Russians.

The House Intelligence Committee will help verify whether the Free Beacon had any involvement with Steele or his dossier, according to Jack Langer, a spokesman for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. (This a few hours after suggesting the Post was an unreliable source).
