Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russian Federation dossier

Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russian Federation dossier”

"This overly broad subpoena for Fusion's bank records serves no investigative objective and is created to punish President Trump's political foes while chilling future investigative research into his actions", attorney William W. Taylor III said.

The Democrats paid for research, including by Fusion GPS, because of concerns that little was known about Trump and his business interests, according to the people familiar with the matter. As U.S. secretary of state, Hillary Clinton approved the transaction as millions of dollars poured in to her corrupt family foundation from Russian sources.

"The only other persons who knew the identity of the bank were committee staff, Mr. Nunes and possibly other committee members", Levy said. "The victim here is the President", Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. "We can not in good conscience do anything but advise our clients to stand on their constitutional privileges, the attorney work product doctrine and contractual obligations", Fusion GPS attorney Josh Levy wrote earlier this month.

"Workers of firm involved with the discredited and Fake Dossier take the 5 [,]" the president tweeted October 19.

What I find most significant about it is the fact that Christopher Steele, no matter who was paying for his services, may have discovered, before our own intelligence agencies that the Russians were going to interfere in our election on behalf of Donald Trump.

"The breadth of the subpoena will cause harm to the businesses of Fusion's clients and contractors and also subject those clients and contractors to harassment, fear of cyberattacks and hacking attempts, and, in some instances, danger to their physical safety", Fusion's argument reads.

Some of Steele's allegations began circulating in Washington, D.C.in the summer of 2016 as the FBI launched its counterintelligence investigation into possible connections between Trump associates and the Kremlin.

After the election, the FBI agreed to pay Steele to continue gathering intelligence about Trump and Russian Federation, but the bureau pulled out of the arrangement after Steele was publicly identified in news reports. It was passed around media and political circles but wasn't published until CNN reported on its existence, and Buzzfeed took the extraordinary step to publish it despite it not being substantiated.

The most salacious accusations contained in the dossier have not been verified, and may never be. Fusion GPS has said in court filings that it did not give Buzzfeed the document. They have also inquired about the FBI's approach to the dossier - the bureau reportedly started looking into its allegations last year, and there have been questions about whether the FBI at some point last year paid Steele for the dossier.

The dossier created a political firestorm in January when it was revealed that then-FBI Director James Comey had alerted Trump to the existence of allegations about him and Russian Federation.

Congressional Republicans have tried to force Fusion GPS to identify the Democrat or group behind Steele's work, but the firm has said that it would not do so, citing confidentiality agreements with its clients. The firm's founder, Glenn Simpson, had previously given a 10-hour interview to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Fusion GPS has asked that a federal judge to block a House Intelligence Committee request to gain access to the company's bank records, saying it would violate its constitutional rights.

Fusion GPS has been fighting the release of its bank records.
