Devin Nunez files racketeering lawsuit against Fusion GPS

September 4, 2019

  According to this story Devin Nunes is filing a racketeering lawsuit against Fusion GPS and the Campaign for Accountability for smearing him because he had the audacity to investigate their roles in the fake Russian dossier. Here is more:

Rep. Devin Nunes filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday against opposition research firm Fusion GPS and the Campaign for Accountability, accusing the two of smearing him over his investigation into Fusion GPS’s and the Steele dossier.

The complaint, which the California Republican filed in federal court in Virginia, alleges that Fusion GPS and Campaign for Accountability (CfA) worked on a “joint and systematic effort to intimidate, harass, threaten, influence, interfere with, impede, and ultimately to derail” Nunes’ investigation of the dossier, which he directed as chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).

In the lawsuit, Nunes draws a link between CfA payments to Fusion GPS and a string of ethics complaints that the watchdog group filed against him last year.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported Aug. 1 that CfA’s 2018 tax filings show the group paid Fusion GPS nearly $140,000 unspecified research activities.

  The complaint basically claims that the Campaign for Accountability paid Fusion GPS to file ethics complaints against Devin Nunes, but that claim is naturally being denied. And of course Fusion GPS would never take money for such a devious reason as creating something out of thin air to use against a political opponent…
