“And now, what we know is, there’s a link between those who were doing the smearing and Fusion GPS.”

“When we were investigating Fusion GPS, they were actively involved in working to smear me to obstruct justice, to derail our investigation – and so, I’m gonna hold these guys accountable, and this is just one of many steps we’re gonna continue to take,” continued Nunes.

Nunes filed a $9.9 million federal conspiracy lawsuit in the Eastern District of Virginia alleging that the Fusion GPS behind the anti-Trump Steele dossier coordinated with another group to file several fraudulent and harassing ethics complaints intended to derail his investigation.

The complaint named Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson and the nonprofit Campaign for Accountability (CfA), said the “smear” tactics kicked into action shortly after Simpson “lied” in his closed-door testimony before the House Intelligence Committee in November 2017, as well as before the Senate Judiciary Committee in August 2017.

“The bank records produced by Fusion GPS revealed that the Clinton campaign, the DNC and Perkins Coie paid for Fusion GPS’ anti-Trump research,” Nunes’ complaint stated.

  1. The Trump–Russia dossier, also known as the Steele dossier, is a private intelligence report written from June to December 2016 containing allegations of misconduct and conspiracy between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and the Government of Russia during the 2016 election. The dossier comprises 17 memos and was authored by Christopher Steele, a former head of the Russia Desk for British intelligence (MI6), for the private investigative firm Fusion GPS. The report alleged that Trump campaign members and Russian operatives conspired to interfere in the election to benefit Trump. It also alleged that Russia sought to damage Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, including sharing negative information about Clinton with the Trump campaign. The dossier was published in full by BuzzFeed on January 10, 2017. Several mainstream media outlets criticized BuzzFeed’s decision to release it without verifying its allegations, while others defended its release. In October 2015, Fusion GPS was contracted by conservative political website The Washington Free Beacon to provide general opposition research on Trump and other Republican presidential candidates. In April 2016, attorneys for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC separately hired Fusion GPS to investigate Trump, while The Free Beacon stopped its backing in May of 2016. In June 2016, Fusion GPS subcontracted Steele’s firm to compile the dossier. Clinton campaign officials were reportedly unaware that Fusion GPS had subcontracted Steele, and he was not told that the Clinton campaign was the recipient of his research verification needed Following Trump’s election as president, funding from Clinton and the DNC ceased, but Steele continued his research and was reportedly paid directly by Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn R. Simpson. While compiling the dossier, Steele passed information to both British and American intelligence services. The media, the intelligence community, and most experts have treated the dossier with caution due to its unverified allegations, while Trump has denounced it as fake news. Russian intelligence agencies have sought to create doubt about the veracity of the dossier. The U.S. intelligence community took the allegations seriously. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) investigated every line of the dossier and spoke with two of Steele’s sources. The Mueller Report, a summary of the findings of the Special Counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections, contained passing references to some of the dossier’s allegations but little mention of its more sensational claims. Some allegations of the dossier have been corroborated, however much of the dossier remains unverified. One allegation was rejected by the Mueller Report. Contrary to repeated assertions by Trump, Fox News, and many of his supporters, the dossier was not the impetus for the opening of the FBI’s “Crossfire Hurricane” counterintelligence investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election campaign.

  2. Clinton, DNC all need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.Punishment should be making little rocks out of big rocks for the rest of their lives or just hang’em high all of them.

  3. The facts will bear out. Even if we don’t get these criminals in prison, their reputations will be ruined. Washington doesn’t move as fast as the people want because there is too much cronyism and greed and graft going on. Covering asses is also very important. The snails-pace actions of the FBI attest to that.
    The folks behind the ‘dossier’ are Communists who think they are the elites who should inherit the world. We the serfs, they the kings. Freedom for me, but not for thee. They preach about how the citizens should do without to ‘save the world’, but have no intentions of following their own mandates. The sea-levels will rise, but Obama bought a house on the ocean. Gore’s carbon footprint is greater than many small nations.
    A demonrat-lead House is keeping things from happening. They know the true origins of the dossier, and have been spinning and investigating non-stop since the 2016 election; desperately hoping to change the 2020 election or impeach Trump beforehand. I would not be surprised if many of the elected demonrats currently serving were caught up in the evidence Nunez is seeking in this suit.
    The 2020 election will see more of them brought to bear for their anti-American rhetoric and despicable behavior; IF the people keep Trump in the Whitehouse.
    It has never been more important to vote for true conservatives if you want to avoid Socialism.
    Do some homework, seek out true Trump supporters.

  4. Nothing is going to happen. You know that is a true statement. They are too politically connected and there is no political will to do so.

    • The whole purpose of going to Washington for most politicians is to get rich, and one of the tools of the swamp-dwellers is dirt you can use. That’s why there is a double-standard. “Politically-connected” = blackmail. That’s how it has always worked.
      Hitlery and all those like her know this. They work harder at elbow-rubbing than policy-making. They tell their constituency one thing, but do another; and blame it on “them” across the aisle.
      Intrigue and subterfuge, sabotage and slander, investigate and subpoena. Turn the law into weapons. It’s all about power. The ultimate goal of Socialism.
      Trump went to Washington as an already-rich patriot. He is not ownable, he doesn’t take a salary, and he needs no one but his family. He has accomplished more in 2 years than most of all his predecessors combined.
      He has slain Obama’s “legacy”, and that’s too much for the demonrats and libertards to bear.
