Obama Campaign Hired Fusion GPS To Investigate Romney


So a FISA warrant was issued (in the Trump case) based upon a report from Fusion GPS which the court did not know (because they weren’t told, though the FBI knew) was funded by the Hillary Clinton camp? And Fusion GPS had also done work for the Democratic Party and the Obama people in a similar way in the previous election? (And still the FISA court was not informed.)

So Fusion GPS is the Dem “dirt firm,” the FBI it appears knew it, but the FISA court was not informed of Fusion’s status as a partisan hack organization? That doesn’t make sense. (I mean it does.)

In fact the whole situation stinks like an 8 day old trout. Really it more than stinks. People should be held to account.

The Barack Obama presidential campaign hired Fusion GPS in 2012 to dig up dirt on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, according to a book released on Tuesday.

The Obama campaign hid its payments to Fusion GPS through its law firm, Perkins Coie. The arrangement is similar to the one that the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee used to pay Fusion for its investigation of then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016…

…“As had become standard practice in the shadowy world of ‘oppo’ research, the Obama campaign’s payments to Fusion GPS were never publicly disclosed; the money paid to the investigative firm was reported on campaign disclosure reports as legal bills to the campaign’s law firm, Perkins Coie,” the book reads.
