    The collusion and money trail is there. No wonder Fusion GPS fought so hard to keep their financial records sealed.

    If the FISA court is shown to have used that dossier to justify the unmaskings, Obama's team is in for a deserved world of shit.
    You left out THE REPUBLICAN who initiated the OPPO RESEARCH! You people don't even try do you? Not even an attempt to cover the truth!

    Unless it has been disclosed, a GOP campaign INITIATED and CONTRACTED Fusion/GPS. It is thought to be JEB BUSH or TED CRUZ! Let's see those records and who paid for it!

    I think this entire chase little more than a massive diversionary tactic by some in the GOP to try to support the delusions of the president.

    Fusion GPS is a private company. In digging up, or attempting to, dirt on the president, where is the criminality in that? Or criminality indicated tot he point where Congress would pursue it?

    Is Congress nothing more than the enabler of a stupid and insecure president? One that can not keep the pie hole in his face from spewing stupidity?

    It has been known since Octtober that it was the Washington Free Beacon who hired them to do opposition research on several Republicans.

    The original arrangement between the Free Beacon and Fusion GPS involved opposition research into multiple Republican candidates, not just front-runner Donald Trump.

    Sources close to the Free Beacon stress that the project, when the Free Beacon funded it, had nothing to do with Russia and did not involve Christopher Steele, the former British spy who gathered anti-Trump dirt in Russia. Steele was retained by Fusion GPS when the project was funded by Democrats, and not in its initial phase, when the Free Beacon was involved.

    However, after they dropped out and Hillary began paying only then was Steele hired, and it was Steele who assembled the dossier.

    There are no court documents. There is only a report in the Washington Examiner that of court documents exist.

    Just because W.E. believes documents exist does not mean they do.

    Newly filed court documents confirm that Fusion GPS, the company mostly responsible for the controversial “Trump dossier” on presidential candidate Donald Trump, made payments to three journalists between June 2016 until February 2017
    .
    Fusion GPS paid journalists, court papers confirm

    That is no proof documents exist.

    So you don't have an answer to the very simple question= Why should we care who Fusion GPS paid in terms of the media?

It could be that some members of the news media have made donations to left wing groups. But that wouldn't prove any kind of collusion between the press and the Democrats and the Clintons and the FBI and the CIA and whoever else you think is in on the conspiracy.

    And I have shown you repeatedly the things that Obama did and attempted to do in response the the Russian meddling. And I showed you how the Republicans in Congress blew him and the Russian meddling off. And I showed you how the states were leery of the federal government having anything to do with what the states consider a strictly state issue, namely how they run elections.

    But, as usual, you make up in your head what you think is "really" going on and no evidence or facts ever dissuades you from your original theory no matter how wrong you are.
    Well, since you totally discredit my source book, even though it was written by a journalist with impeccable credentials, who exactly has made up their mind without examining the case.

    I didn't originate or make up any of this. It's not a conspiracy theory.

    https://www.amazon.com/Stonewalled-O.../dp/0062322850

    Here's a couple of quotes from this source book and its readers.

    Seasoned CBS reporter and author of The Smear, Sharyl Attkisson reveals how she has been electronically surveilled while digging deep into the Obama Administration and its scandals, and offers an incisive critique of her industry and the shrinking role of investigative journalism in today’s media.

    Americans are at the mercy of powerful figures in business and government who are virtually unaccountable.
    The real story here is the credible documentation by a seasoned insider of the control exerted by the Obama administration over CBS News. Nowhere is this demonstrated more clearly than in Ms Attkissen's account of the extent to which CBS covered up the truth concerning a pivotal moment in the 2012 Presidential election (debate 2). After the debate, pundits everywhere were arguing about whether or not Obama called the Benghazi attacks terrorism in his Rose Garden speech on 9/12/12. While discussions continued and the media largely sided with Obama, CBS "sat on" video evidence (shot on the same day), proving that he did not call or consider the Benghazi attacks terrorism. (At least that is what Obama said in the interview with Kroft). Furthermore, after reading the book, one might conclude that the entire debate moment was orchestrated. Ms Attkissen poses the key question: "- How did the White House know CBS wouldn't use the part of the 60 Minutes Obama interview that disproved the president's debate claim?"
    she understands the critical importance of an independent press in fostering freedom in a republic. In this fast paced and interesting book, she describes in heartbreaking detail how the media has become a lap dog for corporate and governmental interests, while abandoning its responsibility to ask hard questions and hold our leaders to account. She is one of the few who understand that it is the job of the media, "to remind politicians and government officials as to who they work for.
    It's one thing to suspect that high-profile news anchors and media executives, in cahoots with a sitting president and his administration, are practicing heavy-handed manipulation of the facts of major news stories. It's quite another to read first-hand accounts of such misdeeds, and many other behind-the-news stories, in a book written by a multiple Emmy award-winning journalist, such as Sharyl Attkisson. Attkisson's old-school commitment to reporting the facts as they are, and not letting powerful people intimidate or silence her, are precious qualities, rare among news professionals, these days. Readers will find these qualities to figure largely in Attkisson's telling of her story.

    Reading Stonewalled prompted me to recall Joni Mitchell's famous line, "Don't it always seem to go that we don't know what we've got till it's gone?" I knew that I missed seeing newscasts that actually reported meaningful information. But I didn't realize the depth of my hunger for meaningful investigative reporting until I felt my reaction to Attkisson's account of how she researched and developed her reports. The words "diligence," "honesty" and "integrity" came to mind, too.

    I had thought, before all this nonsense even happened, that we had seen the lowest extent of what the Congress is capable of. I thought they will grandstand, they will accuse, they will gin up as much outrage as possible on national TV, but when it comes time to taking votes on actions by the Congress of the United States against specific human beings, they will make some effort to cross their T's and do their I's. Because they know that history does matter and that if they directly act to use their powers as such a naked, corrupt political tool as we may see ... it won't forgive them.

    Then I saw the news that Lindsey Graham and Chuck Grassley are attempting, perhaps for the first time, to ask the federal government to indict someone on crimes that the Congress has not issued findings of fact on and has not spoken to; a man who has not otherwise done anything to offend them OTHER THAN say and write nasty things about the president of their party. Pure, unadulterated banana republic territory. And Graham himself has said nastier things about Trump, repeatedly, without prompting! Steele was conversely doing his job, however much you want to disagree with it.

    The FBI will wipe its ass with their request, but that's not the point. We are seeing some serious, unprecedented public service decay. These people have got to go.
    Worse I think is Graham throwing McCain under the bus. Steele was so alarmed by want he found, he first went to McCain and then McCain to the FBI.

    He has become one of Trump's biggest ass kisser.

    Out of all the people who were looking into Russia - Steele seems to be the only one who did the right thing. Alerting the proper people.

    Agree this is unprecedented public service decay

    So what? Fusion GPS is a commercial research and strategic intelligence firm. What the hell do you think they do for a living? They're licensed to do this business, and there's nothing illegal about it. They are but one of many such outfits operating legally within the US.
