Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) has revealed that bank records indicate payments were made to Fusion GPS by the Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee (DNC), confirming what many had been saying all along.
Petr Svab of The Epoch Times discusses the recent lawsuit filed by Rep. Nunes alleging that Fusion GPS engaged in racketeering and should be dissolved:
“Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) filed a lawsuit alleging that opposition research outfit Fusion GPS and left-leaning watchdog group Campaign for Accountability (CfA) engaged in a racketeering conspiracy by filing ethics complaints against him that the suit called “fraudulent and retaliatory.”
The federal suit, filed on Sept. 4 in the Eastern District of Virginia, alleges that Fusion GPS and CfA targeted Nunes in order to “intimidate, harass, threaten, influence, interfere with, impede, and ultimately to derail” his congressional investigation, which puts Fusion GPS and its co-founder, Glenn Simpson, at risk of prosecution.
Fusion GPS is best known for commissioning in 2016 the so-called Steele dossier, a collection of unverified and unsubstantiated claims about then-candidate Donald Trump centered around alleged collusion with Russia to skew the presidential election. Fusion GPS was paid $1 million for the job by the Democratic National Committee and the campaign of Trump’s opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.” – The Epoch Times

Here are some of the highlights from the complaint:
Do you notice anything interesting?
This is a common tactic and one that we have experienced ourselves here at Patriots’ Soapbox.
This would seem to indicate Nunes believes the media is actively assisting a foreign power to undermine the United States, wittingly or unwittingly.
