Turn on Rachel if you arent watching. She's interviewing the Fusion GPS guys. They've

Last edited Mon Nov 25, 2019, 11:23 PM - Edit history (1)

been investigating Trump since 2015. They are talking Steele dossier. They just published a book. They were shocked when Trump picked Manafort for his chair because he already had so much dirt on him.

Edited to add link to great New Yorker article about the book :
"The Inside Story of Christopher Steeleís Trump Dossier"
You will want to read this article. Lots of good info i hadn't heard before!

Not to be missed, and she said she's been really immersed in all this but learned so much new from this one.

7. They brought up (which even democrats don't bring up)

that REPUBLICANS started investigating Trump first. IMO this is important and should be brought up every time republicans bring up the dossier.

and they know it. Even just political donations. Trump was their boy and everyone knew that they couldn't do a damn thing about it.

26. I know!!!

It drives me crazy that nobody ever talks about this! The following is from TWO FREAKING YEARS AGO!

"The Washington Free Beacon, a conservative site based in Washington, D.C., confirmed that it hired the firm Fusion GPS to unearth damaging information about President Donald Trump in the run-up to the election."

"A key financial backer of Free Beacon is Paul Singer, a billionaire New York investor who is among the country's most active Republican donors. Since 2012, Singer has given more than 40 million dollars to Republican and conservative candidates for federal office, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Recipients included Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, who competed with Trump for the Republican nomination."

36. Yes

I read the Judiciary interview of Simpson last year. It is available on line to read, and it is very interesting. This interview was voluntary but with restrictions in order to protect people that Fusion deemed vulnerable. They had their lawyer head off some stuff throughout the testimony.

If you put Fusion GPS into Google and click on The Daily Beast link, you can read this 312-page interview at the end of the article.

When I brought this up to another forum last year, no one was much interested in it. I thought it was a remarkable document because somewhere in the pages it came to light that Fusion itself became alarmed and actually attempted to notify the FBI about stuff, but nothing was done about it, or so it seemed.

There are a lot of familiar names in the document. Because the document is so long, I think a lot of people don't care about it, but it is well worth the read. As I recall, Fusion refused to give up the name of the Repub that originally requested their investigation, but everything else is revealed pretty much. The Steele dossier was definitely initiated in the Repub camp.

31. Manafort was hard to find at the time

They said they couldn't even find any contact info for manafort after his name came up during the investigation by Steele

He wasn't anywhere near the loop at that time, was in the dustbin of US history until being found by dump...

35. It's not dirt

it's evidence of criminality and corruption.

I was shocked as well once I heard he managed Yanukovitch's campaign. How baldfaced can you be?

And Repukes just shrugged it off. Rubes.
