Fusion GPS founder met with Russian lawyer before and after her meeting with Donald Trump Jr.

November 7, 2017

  The whole Fusion GPS/Russian dossier/collusion investigation is getting cloudier by the day. Back in July we learned that during the campaign Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner  met with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have dirt on Hillary Clinton. According to Donald Trump Jr. the lawyer did not have any dirt on Hillary Clinton and was only interested in talking about Russian adoption so he ended the meeting–which he called a dirty trick.

 We now know that the Fusion GPS Russian dossier was funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign, but now the story has taken another turn.

  According to this story, the head of Fusion GPS met with the same Russian lawyer both before and after the lawyer met with Donald Trump Jr.

  Here is more:

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 Trump’s 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 Clinton’s campaign paid for that research. Congressional Republicans have since questioned whether that politically financed research contributed to the FBI’s investigation of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – making Fusion’s 2016 contacts with Russian interests all the more relevant.

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 pair’s presence together. The source told Fox News they also were together after the Trump Tower meeting. 

Simpson’s presence with Veselnitskaya during this critical week in June — together with revelations about Fusion’s simultaneous financial ties to the DNC, Clinton campaign and Russian interests — raise new questions about the company’s role in the 2016 election.

  To sum it all up: Fusion GPS was funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign while they were working with foreign agents to dig up dirt on Donald Trump and at the same time the head of Fusion GPS was meeting with the Russian lawyer before and after the lawyer’s meeting with Donald Trump Jr.

  On the surface it appears as if Fusion GPS and the Russian lawyer were trying to entrap Donald Trump Jr. and the others. This reeks of a setup to me…

    Yup – and a setup he walked away from.

    Bit by bit it looks like the entire Hillary/DNC/Wasserman-Schultz/Comey/Holder/Obama/Lynch business is unraveling. This is now another loose thread.

    It looks as if Mueller is planning on using the hope of a reduced sentence to get Manafort and Gates to talk. But what will they say? In Trump’s line of work, he met a lot of people from a lot of governments, there’s not much question about that. The question is what was done or decided at those meetings? Straight business or political plotting? So far no one is pointing a finger at Trump.

    The fun part is that a lot of the stuff seems to indicate Hillary and her running dogs. She and a pile of Democrats seem to have a rather intricate conspiracy going. We know she sandbagged Sanders, now what else is going to emerge?

    If Mueller ultimately exonerates Trump and indicts Hillary, I’m going to have a week long laughing fit.

      That’s pretty much the way I see it as well. Luckily he was smart enough to walk away early.

    They will slow walk this story for so long and have so many twists and turns that most will give up following the story line and return to the original charge — Russia Russia Russia and Trump should be impeached.
