Fusion GPS Paying "Journalists"?


Recommended Posts

They asked for a TRO to prevent records of payments to "journalists" to be blocked form Congress

Lawyers for Fusion submitted a new request for a temporary restraining order preventing its bank, TD Bank, from producing records requested by the House panel regarding records of its transactions “with any law firm, ‘media company’ or journalist with which it has worked.”

 

The filing raises the possibility that Fusion has paid journalists.

 

The committee, chaired by California Rep. Devin Nunes, subpoenaed TD Bank for Fusion’s records early last month. The bank was poised to hand over the documents, but the two sides reached a last-minute settlement on Oct. 27.

 

“None of those demands are pertinent to the Committee’s ‘Russia investigation,’ and disclosure of the documents would cause irreparable harm to Plaintiff by destroying the confidentiality of its business with its clients and contractors and by violating Plaintiff’s First Amendment rights to free speech and free association,” Fusion’s lawyers argue.

 

They called the subpoena “overbroad” and intended “to harm Plaintiff.”

 

Nunes, who served as an adviser to the Trump campaign, sought to find out the identities of the Fusion GPS clients who hired the firm during the 2016 election cycle to investigate Donald Trump. Facing the release of Fusion’s bank records, the law firm that represented the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee came forward last week to acknowledge that it was the funder for the dossier, which was authored by former British spy Christopher Steele.

The law firm, Perkins Coie, hired Fusion GPS in April 2016. Fusion hired Steele that June.

There IS precedent for a president to release his tax returns and his own business details but he will not. Why should GPS open their business to scrutiny to such a fucktard as Nunes?

 

Damn you're dumb!

There is no REQUIREMENT for a President to release tax returns, and you can't force him to do so. 

And plenty of companies and people have been forced to release their bank records, when they are under investigation. 

Mueller has already done it to a bunch of people. 

 

Why are you whining about this?
