Kirsters Baish| It’s truly disheartening to know that the truth is somewhere out there in the world, but we are never told the truth. In the case of the phony Trump dossier that was made to ruin President Trump’s reputation, we were left in the dark completely. We now know that Trump had no ties to Russia involving the 2016 Presidential Election.
The fake dossier was just a small piece of one of the most publicized presidential races in our country’s history. It’s important to keep in mind that there was not much that Hillary Clinton wouldn’t have done in order to win the election against Donald Trump. Hillary felt that she was exempt from even being considered as someone who was in charge of her actions. Then there was Donald Trump who wouldn’t stand for being bothered with anything that upsets him. The level of contention was a given.
The investigative firm that was serving the Democratic Party, Fusion GPS, played a big part in the election drama. Fusion GPS is still at the center of the entire dossier scandal. Now, on the slight chance that administrators as well as staff from Fusion GPS didn’t do anything incorrectly like they claim, we are in need of some clarification. There is an issue of conduct when it comes to the company attempting to withhold bank records that were subpoenaed by the House. 112 transactions were also missing from what Fusion GPS released. Now, Congressman Trey Gowdy is coming out with arms swinging.
The Washington Times reported:
“The suspect transactions, House lawyers say, deal with two Russia issues. One is the dossier. The other is Fusion’s payments from another law firm, BakerHostetler. That money came from the Russian firm Prevezon Holdings which is lobbying Washington to repeal a law that brought stiff economic sanctions on President Vladimir Putin’s regime.
“In that vein, the House committee wants copies of Fusion bank transfers with other law firms in addition to Perkins Coie and Hostetler.”
“‘Fusion has established a pattern and practice of using law firms as intermediaries to mask the true beneficiaries of its research,’ the House filing says.”
Fusion has had the goal of serving its Democratic recipients since the start, so they have formed a very confused entanglement of money transactions. Why are they rearranging money among law offices in order to hide records from the House subpoena? There has to be more to the story that we are not being told.
While Fusion GPS’s Democratic customers would lean a different way, a government judge has just opened up records that have shown us a little more about what was going on at the firm. A federal court opened sealed Fusion GPS bank records on Tuesday which have given us new information about the Russia-related payments that were made by Fusion involving the Trump dossier.
The records were unsealed by Judge Richard Leon, a Bush appointee. These records showed 112 transactions which all involved Fusion GPS. The law firm which represented the Clinton campaign as well as the DNC, Perkins Coie, paid Fusion GPS $1,024,408 between the dates of May 24, 2016 and December 28, 2016.
The documents that have been unsealed also show details of the House committee’s requests for records directly related to payments to journalists made by Fusion GPS. The committee was searching for records that related to five specific Fusion GPS payments made to a research and Russia expert as well as production of three other payments.
While justice may not be served as swiftly as we would like, you can bet that there will be some serious repercussions for the phony dossier and all of the corruption that went along with it. Things are not looking good for failed candidate Hillary Clinton or Fusion GPS. Trey Gowdy is about to bring the hammer down big time.
