Fusion GPS official met with Russian operative before and after Trump Jr. sit-down

Fusion GPS official met with Russian operative before and after Trump Jr. sit-down


That this woman was back in the country, combined with this, spells "set-up".


Quote:
The co-founder of Fusion GPS, the firm behind the unverified Trump dossier, met with a Russian lawyer before and after a key meeting she had last year with Trumpís son, Fox News has learned. The contacts shed new light on how closely tied the firm was to Russian interests, at a time when it was financing research to discredit then-candidate Donald Trump.

The opposition research firm has faced renewed scrutiny after litigation revealed that the DNC and Hillary Clintonís campaign paid for that research. Congressional Republicans have since questioned whether that politically financed research contributed to the FBIís investigation of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign Ė making Fusionís 2016 contacts with Russian interests all the more relevant.

...

But hours before the Trump Tower meeting on June 9, 2016, Fusion co-founder and ex-Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson was with Veselnitskaya in a Manhattan federal courtroom, a confidential source told Fox News. Court records reviewed by Fox News, email correspondence and published reports corroborate the pairís presence together. The source told Fox News they also were together after the Trump Tower meeting.

Simpsonís presence with Veselnitskaya during this critical week in June -- together with revelations about Fusionís simultaneous financial ties to the DNC, Clinton campaign and Russian interests -- raise new questions about the companyís role in the 2016 election.


...


Senate Judiciary Committee investigators interviewed Simpson for more than 10 hours on Aug. 22. A spokesman for the committee had no comment on whether Simpson confirmed his contact with Veselnitskaya during the closed-door session.

More.

The DNC and Clinton campaign hired Fusion in April 2016 through lawyer Marc Elias, who was general counsel for the Clinton campaign. Fusion, in turn, paid Steele $168,000 for the dossier, memos from which were shared with the FBI in the summer of 2016.

Fusion officials said last week Steele's money came from $1.02 million it received in fees and expenses from Elias' law firm Perkins Coie. Prior to contracting with the DNC, Fusion had been conducting research into Trump and other Republican candidates on behalf of the conservative website The Washington Free Beacon.

NBC News first reported that Veselnitskaya and Simpson were both at a hearing centered around another Fusion client, Russian oligarch Denis Katsyv. His company, Prevezon Holdings, was sanctioned against doing business in the U.S. for its alleged role in laundering more than $230 million. Fox News obtained audio records from that hearing in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Paying a lawyer to pay a firm to pay a Russian is a very big and obvious attempt at "laundering" the payment from Hillary to a Russian operative and for what? For lies. For lies that are leaked out. This whole thing in a very tangled web of collusion between Hilary Clinton, the DNC, Lawyer, and the Press.
Thanks from sumara and Sabcat

You can always tell when a topic is hard for the Left to deal with, like this one. The Left won't touch it with a ten foot pole.

To anyone who was paying attention during the election this was fairly obvious.

Were you to make thread on a real big news story as this is, I participate in it. That is what this thread is that the Left is avoiding. You are avoiding the topic still.
