Journalists Suspected Of Taking Bribes To Spread “Russian Collusion” Fake News

The House Intelligence Committee suspects journalists may have been paid to report on alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. 

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is demanding Fusion GPS, the firm behind the infamous ‘Trump dossier,’ submit its banking records to the House Intelligence Committee so it can investigate if payments made to the research firm where funneled to reporters.

 Washington Times reports:

Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican and chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, signed a subpoena to force a bank to turn over Fusion’s financial records. He wants to know who paid for the dossier, which was written in a series of 18 memos by former British spy Christopher Steele. He relied almost exclusively on unidentified Kremlin sources.

Fusion went to federal court to block the move, but the law firm Perkins Coie LLP, whose partner Marc E. Elias is the Clinton’s campaign’s general counsel, intervened. It filed a letter acknowledging it had paid Fusion for the dossier on behalf of Democrats. Fusion and Mr. Nunes then worked out an agreement on access to some of the firm’s financial records.

But the dispute heightened again Friday as Fusion renewed its request for a judge to block the subpoena because Mr. Nunes wants more information. The widened net includes the names of journalists and law firms that Fusion might have paid.

The House Intelligence Committee announced it has reached a deal to obtain Fusion GPS’s bank records after the firm behind the ‘Trump dossier,’ moved to block access. Unfortunately, the bank records will be confidential under the sealed protective order.

“House Intel Committee reaches a deal to secure Fusion GPS’ bank records; the company produced dossier alleging Trump-Russia links,” tweeted ABC News on Saturday afternoon.

 

The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross pointed out the bank records are under protective order.

“Federal judge places Fusion GPS bank records under the sealed protective order. Will remain confidential,” tweeted Ross.

 

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Fusion GPS  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.’

  1. Russia, reduced to a chess piece, guess which one, in the deep state’s schizophrenic game of “power power, who’s got the power”. Trump and Clinton, marionettes moving and making moves as strings are pulled. Russia, not even in the game, just wants to live in peace, just as Trump wanted before the CIA started pulling his strings. In my research of history, no one wanted war after 1945 except the good old US of A. Any doubts, watch Oliver Stone’s epic documentary, “UNTOLD history of the United States”. If you choose not to believe, you choose to be the useful idiot cheering and funding these genocidal wars. This is not off topic because empire takes tax dollars to fund war while starving it’s citizens and defunding the welfare programs we want and need, especially now. So more cops, more jails, more corruption in the injustice system; Self investigations, seriously!? More people who are fed up, more violent suppression of civil and human rights. There you go then we come full circle. Speaking truth to power, a revolutionary act in an authoritarian state. Cops like to ironically say, be careful out there, but by their actions we know what they mean, it’s them we need to fear. Peace and respect Comrades! Oh, be careful out there!
