'Trump Dossier' Firm Will Turn Over Banking Records To House Intel Committee

Earlier this week, Speaker Paul Ryan offhandedly revealed that the FBI had agreed to hand over documents related to the infamous Trump dossier to the House Intelligence Committee, marking a victory for Chairman Devin Nunes, who had been pushing the DOJ to release the documents for month. And last night, Fox News reported another victory for Nunes in his push to determine how the dossier – which was funded by the DNC and Clinton campaign and contains allegations that have been widely debunked – factored into the bureau’s decision to open an investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

After the owners of Fusion GPS – the opposition research firm hired by a lawyer for the Clinton campaign to scrutinize Trump’s foreign business dealings – refused to answer questions two weeks ago during a Congressional hearing, the company has reportedly agreed to turn over its bank records to Nunes after initially trying to block it.

The House Intelligence Committee said Saturday it has struck a deal to gain access to bank records from Fusion GPS, the firm behind the salacious anti-Trump dossier. The company had recently attempted to block the committee’s subpoena for its banking records.

 

“The parties have reached an agreement related to the House Intelligence Committee's subpoena for Fusion GPS's bank records that will secure the Committee's access to the records necessary for its investigation,” the intelligence committee said in a statement released Saturday.

As Fox pointed out, Nunes has been trying for months to investigate the dossier, which claimed the Russian government had compromising material with which it could blackmail Trump. The dossier was turned over to the FBI during the summer of 2016 and was also widely circulated among Washington journalists before it was published by CNN and Buzzfeed early this year.

Last week, it emerged that Fusion GPS had been retained last year by Marc E. Elias, an attorney representing the DNC and the Clinton campaign, to conduct opposition research on Trump. The firm contracted British spy Christopher Steele, who assembled the dossier.

On Friday evening, it was revealed that the opposition research project was initially backed by the conservative Washington Free Beacon website.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., had issued a subpoena on Oct. 4 for Fusion GPS’ TD Bank records. Fusion’s lawyers responded by issuing a "temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction" to block the release of those records, arguing the release would them “their rights to free speech and expressive association as guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constitution."

While it’s now public knowledge that the Democrats funded the dossier, details like how much they paid for the document and how much they knew about Steele’s work or the quality of his claims remain a mystery. However, the firm’s banking records could shed some light on these matters.

'Trump Dossier' Firm Will Turn Over Banking Records To House Intel Committee

My response: Sorry folks, I no longer TRUST the House Intel Committee.

The time has come to arrest these suspected SWAMP people and seize their records now using trusted MILITARY and/or LAW ENFORCEMENT personnel.

It is time to take the gloves off and go full retard and roundup these career criminals. 

All the details can be sorted out after the arrests and seizure of records.

Hmmm "trusted military or law enforcement personel"  Now who would that be?

GUS100CORRINA's picture

nobodyimportand ... You said: "Hmmm "trusted military or law enforcement personel"  Now who would that be?"

My response: One place we can start to verify trust is by using the same process that the early 1st century Christians used during the rule of brutal tryannical dictatorships of the Roman Empire. While I will not discuss the CHRISTIAN PROCESS here, be assured that I could do it in a very short time frame.

Of course, the process starts with the presupposition that Jeremiah 17:9 is TRUE.

Jeremiah 17:9

The (HUMAN) heart is deceitful above all things

    and beyond cure.

    Who can understand it?

During the time of Rome, verifing TRUST was a really big deal because is was a LIFE or DEATH issue. They were crucifying and burning CHRISTIANS everywhere. 

My friend 'nobodyimportant', we in America live in a BUBBLE. Americans have no doctrine of suffering and live in a fantasy world. It is time to verify American leaders and rebuild trust that was lost over the last couple of decades.

The protestant reformation was also a time where TRUST was a LIFE or DEATH issue as well. The corrupt Catholic Church of that time (13-1600's) was burning fathers at the stake for teaching their children the Lord's prayer.

Please don't forget that Michael Servetus was burned at the stake by Calvin, in Geneva in 1553. It just wasn't the Catholic Church doing that.

Something substantial should probably come of this soon, or the Klinton's most successful strategy may yet win again:

'Bimbo Fatigue'...

Lest anyone's memory fade too soon, 'scandals' were a near daily feature of the Billy Jeff administration - serious scandals.    Millions of man-hours, tax-payer $dollars and television/radio time was dedicated to it.

And what became of it all...?

Maybe Fusion just figured out that they did nothing wrong in producing the dossier - even if it is a fairy tale. The 'crime' is Hillary, the DNC, and the FBI 'paying' for it and then disseminating it and then using it as the basis to unmask and investigate Trump and staff.

Comey and Loretta Obama et al saved HRC. In fact, Comey is still preventing a HRC indictment for numerous felonies involving many national security issues, some of those involving Russia.

And, then there's the Murder of Seth Rich, Wikileaks, the Awan brothers, election rigging, voter fraud, violence incitement, pay to play with the CF, SUPER PAC violations, arms transfers to ISIS, 6 billion USD missing from the State Department, Benghazi, and God kn ows what else.

And yet, because of Hillary Podesta DNC the Presstitute MSM and everyone else involved, our country has been wasting countless hours, millions if not billions of dollars, and the minds of ignorant Dems and other Americans via propaganda all while trying to invoke WW3 w Russia.

All based on lies, all based on a Psychological Operation.

Again, all because HRC is a Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous felon at Large.
Comey did not screw HRC, he screwed the American people, there children, and his own children. Thats alot of fuckin. Comey should be in Guantanamo Bay.

And, Hilary Arrested, Indicated, Tried, Convicted, Imprisoned & finally Executed for Crimes Against Humanity & Crimes Against The American People.

Criminal at Large Loretta Lynch also had a DOJ tax payer slush fund to fund Political Leftists groups.

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and a group of his colleagues are calling on the newly appointed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to immediately investigate how US taxpayer funds are being used by the State Department and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to support Soros-backed, leftist political groups in several Eastern European countries including Macedonia and Albania. According to the letter, potentially millions of taxpayer dollars are being funneled through USAID to Soros' Open Society Foundations with the explicit goal of pushing his progressive agenda.

As Fox News pointed out, USAID gave nearly $15 million to Soros' Foundation Open Society - Macedonia, and other Soros-linked organizations in the region, in the last 4 years of Obama's presidency alone.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-03-16/senators-demand-investigation-t...

Comey served as general counsel at Lockheed Martin until 2010 when he departed with over $6 million to show for it. That same year Lockheed Martin became a member of the Clinton Global Initiative and “won 17 contracts from the U.S. State Department, which was led by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,” Big League Politics reports.

Comey just so happened to have joined the board of the British bank HSBC Holdings in 2013, which just so happens to be a Clinton Foundation partner.
Noting all of this, one of the most important conflicts of interest is Comey’s brother Peter Comey’s role at the Washington law firm DLA Piper, where he serves as “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas”.

As Big League Politics reported, “DLA Piper’s offices [shortly before the election] . . . confirmed that the law firm immediately [patched] callers through to Peter Comey’s direct line there.”

DLA Piper is one of the top ten all-time career campaign donors for Hillary Clinton. On top of this, DLA Piper also happens to do the Clinton Foundation’s taxes. DLA Piper performed the 2015 audit of the Foundation when the scandal first broke.

But its all worth it to advance the cause of world socialism and depopulation. The left is earnest believers in these mythologies and will stop at nothing to see them come to fruition.

Someone needs to go Wyatt Earp on her Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopath ass & her Security Detail.
Simple as that.

In the words of Marsalis Walus from the movie Pulp Fiction.

“I’m gonna call a couple of hard pipe’n Niggaz tomgo to workmon the Holmes here. With a pair of pillars & a blow torch. You here me talk’n Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopath Hillary Clinton! I ain’t though with you by a Damn sight. I’m gonna get Med Evil on your Ass.”

Then.

Arrest.

Indict.

Tri.
Enprison.

And,
Execute. For Crimes Against Humanity & Crimes Against The American People.

STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING

 

PUT ASIDE AN HOUR OF YOUR TIME

 

THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE

 

The Truth will stand on its own merit 

by Benjamin H. Freedman

Born in 1890, he was a successful Jewish businessman in New York City. He was at one time the principal owner of the Woodbury Soap Company. He defected from the Jewish movement in 1945, and spent the remainder of his life and most of his considerable fortune, at least 2.5 million dollars, exposing the Jewish tyranny which has enveloped the USA.

 

Freedman had been an insider at the highest levels of Jewish organizations involved in gaining power in the USA. Mr. Freedman was personally acquainted with Bernard Baruch, Samuel Untermyer, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Joseph Kennedy, and John F. Kennedy, and many more movers and shakers of our times.

It looks as though the bank records at Fusion will also show obammy slipping them a $$ million bucks to finance the slime machine at the same time the DNC and Hitlery were mailing in their $12 million for the same project.  Talk about shit hitting the fan, prior admin financing a giant hit piece (the dossier) then using the product to justify surveilling the Trump organization . . . jeez . . . they're going to need a bigger prison cell

I was also going to alert readers to that link that Obama also paid Fusion GPS (for the dossier most likely, and Obama can't use executive privlege to keep it hidden).   What does Obama say his nearly $1 million in payment to them was for?  Opposition research when he's not running for office seems like it would be a lie, or unreported contribution to Hillary's campaign.   

It's still questionable that Trump called for people to do something, when he's head of the Executve Branch, and consequentially head of the FBI and Justice Dept.  It seems he's been allowing the Democrats to throw boomerangs that keep hitting them.  But at some point, it calls for an investigation of the FBI and the Justice Dept. (which would be a responsibility of Congress) but Trump could also have Sessions initiate an internal review.   Perhaps he's waiting for a better moment.  Seems to me he's reached the point of justifiable action, though Obama's appointees who still are in power won't like it. Maybe he's waiting to get more of his appointees appointed, and past the Senate Democrats stalling tactics (which the GOP now has a reason to use in the future).

A ruling came out yesterday that the court is requiring the bank records remain sealed, so unless Mueller's team decides to release them to CNN, we're not going to be seeing them.
