Last week, Fusion GPS, the firm behind the infamous ‘Trump Dossier,’ requested a U.S. District judge to block investigators from accessing its bank records. Not so fast, says the House Intelligence Committee, who filed a motion demanding Fusion GPS obey the subpoena to reveals its past financial transactions.

According to Kimberley A. Strassel of the Wall Street Journal, ‘the coming Russia bombshells,’ may come to light if a ‘judge orders Fusion GPS to give House investigators its bank records.’
The confirmation this week that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid an opposition-research firm for a “dossier” on Donald Trump is bombshell news. More bombshells are to come. The Fusion GPS saga isn’t over. The Clinton-DNC funding is but a first glimpse into the shady election doings concealed within that oppo-research firm’s walls. We now know where Fusion got some of its cash, but the next question is how the firm used it. With whom did it work beyond former British spy Christopher Steele ? Whom did it pay? Who else was paying it? The answers are in Fusion’s bank records. Fusion has doggedly refused to divulge the names of its clients for months now, despite extraordinary pressure.
[…]If the House wins, don’t be surprised if those records include money connected to Russians. In the past Fusion has worked with Russians, including lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who happened to show up last year in Donald Trump Jr.’s office. FBI bombshells are also yet to come.
[…]Assuming the FBI is comprehensive in its disclosure, expect to learn that the dossier was indeed a major basis of investigating the Trump team—despite reading like “the National Enquirer,” as Rep. Trey Gowdy aptly put it. We may learn the FBI knew the dossier was a bought-and-paid-for product of Candidate Clinton, but used it anyway. Or that it didn’t know, which would be equally disturbing.
According to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), the FBI has now agreed to comply with a request to hand over all dossier-related documents.
In a short-lived agreement, the FBI reimbursed expenses in relation to the procurement of the dossier but backed out of the arrangement after those involved in the ‘Trump Dossier,’ such as former MI6 agent Christopher Steele became public. The FBI believed its credibility could be damaged if its involvement became public.
The FBI used the ‘Trump Dossier,’ as a pretext to obtain a FISA warrant, paving the way for agents to spy on Trump campaign officials, such as Carter Page.
As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Fusion GPS, the firm behind the ‘Trump Dossier,’ is called on a judge to block House investigators from accessing its bank records. Is Fusion GPS attempting to hide who paid for the ‘Trump Dossier’?
Last Monday, GPS Fusion founders refused Rep. Nunes’ request to testify before the House Intelligence Committee. The founders cited constitutional privileges as their reason to refuse, claiming they cannot in good conscience appear before the panel.
