Who is Colluding Who?

2017 November 6

The role of reporters is taking on added importance in federal court battles over the infamous Russia dossier that leveled unverified charges of collusion against the Donald Trump campaign.

In U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Fusion GPS, the dossier’s financier via the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign money, is fighting a House committee chairman’s bid to find out if the opposition research firm paid journalists.

Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican and chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, signed a subpoena to force a bank to turn over Fusion’s financial records. He wants to know who paid for the dossier, which was written in a series of 18 memos by former British spy Christopher Steele. He relied almost exclusively on unidentified Kremlin sources.

Fusion went to federal court to block the move, but the law firm Perkins Coie LLP, whose partner Marc E. Elias is the Clinton’s campaign’s general counsel, intervened. It filed a letter acknowledging it had paid Fusion for the dossier on behalf of Democrats. Fusion and Mr. Nunes then worked out an agreement on access to some of the firm’s financial records.

But the dispute heightened again Friday as Fusion renewed its request for a judge to block the subpoena because Mr. Nunes wants more information. The widened net includes the names of journalists and law firms that Fusion might have paid.


If true this would explain much. For example why has the MSM kept up this Russian ruse for so long when the facts lead elsewhere? How about a simple case of bunko gone extortion. Can’t give up the lie, having been in on it, for to stop might lead to them being exposed.

On top of that it has now come to light that Comey’s first impression of Clinton’s actions were felonies — http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-06/early-comey-memo-accused-hillary-gross-negligence-punishable-jail

If GPS Fusion has to cough up the correspondence it might be the biggest scandal since Tea Pot Dome.

    The “MSM” is so compromised they can NEVER afford to report this honestly…hence their actions and inactions.

    An honest media would be doing investigative reporting of Fusion GPS, informing the public who they are and what they are doing, not just with the Trump dossier.The LA Times says it’s not important where the dossier came from and who paid for it (or even if its true).

    Maybe Sherryl Atikinson (sic) will tackle it. She is about the only independent reporter from the old school left.

    the same media that stampeded to spray the Romney tape of him saying something about people on Welfare not being his voters all over everywhere for months, STILL refuses to release the tape of Obama’s comments at a dinner with a bunch of Muslim extremists.

    In the case of the Romney tape the media screamed: “The public NEEDS to know!!

    In the case of the Obama tape the media whispered: “The public SHOULDN’T know.

    The rationale of why white is evil — https://www.huffingtonpost.com/jesse-benn/towards-a-concept-of-whit_b_7985986.html — Its a BS article, but its thesis is that there is no cure for white hence they will never stop.

    Steel yourselves for this is no longer a MLK world anymore.

    drdog, that article in #6 proves indeed that this is no longer a MLK world. Everyone of every Race should read the article.

    That EXACT article could have been written and published in 1930s Germany, simply replacing “Whiteness” with “Jewishness”.

    Unlike the Jews of 1930s Germany, however, when the “Progressives” come knocking on MY door to tell me I must surrender everything I have, including my FREEDOM, because of my “Whiteness”, they will have to talk to my good friends Smith & Wesson first.

    But then, they’ll NEVER knock on my door, because I’m not their target audience. My grandkids are their target audience. My grandkids happen to be inflicted with the “disease” Progressives call “Whiteness”. So it is my grandkids that the Left will try to convince to surrender their Rights and possessions to “atone” for their “sin of being White”.

    Read the article…if you can. Try not to throw up. But understand that this is no longer Martin Luther King’s world. “Character” counts for NOTHING with the Progressives (see: “Harvey Weinstein”). Only the color of your skin, or some other characteristic they can use to divide Americans.

    Excellent observation of the parallels.

    JR –

    I am shocked that you don’t remember what Chris Cuomo said – only the media has the right to see things like Wiki-Leaks and they will interpret them for us idiots. Also, you forgot what Mike said – it’s the media’s job to tell us what to think.

    Today’s media truly believes their job is not to provide information, but to control the flow of information.

    Kinda conspiratorial but … Dang … no news for days and days. What’s going on with this investigation?

    Jim, if the Feds & police were TRYING to gin up conspiracy theories they couldn’t be doing any better:

    Step 1: Screw up timelines…multiple times
    Step 2: Allow perp’s house to be robbed and “lose” hard-drive from his computer
    Step 3: Allow only witness to crime to leave country, and then come back and give exactly one interview…to Ellen Degeneris
    Step 4: Cease ALL dissemination of information

    Yup…they couldn’t do better!

    Looks like swamp creature Gillespie is going to lose.

    No harm no foul

    15 – yeah, looking that way. Agree not a big loss, but I hate the idea of Dems getting any wind in their sails right now.

    VA has turned deep blue. Similar to how Chicago overwhelms downstate IL with D vote, Fairfax Co. overwhelms VA. And why would they vote against big government and the deep state? Fairfax County thrives because of big government and the deep state. Even in the deepest part of the economic downturn, Fairfax Co. was absolutely booming. Cranes everywhere erecting new gleaming buildings. It’s a company town.

    Agree. The GOPe is dumber than dirt if they keep pumping money into VA. Lost cause.

    Your friends at the Turd Palace must be in mourning.

  21. 2017 November 7 6:22 pm

    Haven’t been to the pickle puffer palace in a whike. What was the problem with gillespie. A rino perhaps.?

  22. 2017 November 7 7:15 pm

    13 – I’ve see that around, someone commented somewhere on it that would sort of explain most of the questions but not all. But yes it seemed to get no attention the last couple days.

    7 – :–)
    Hillary still ain’t prez-o-dent… /me does mini dance\shuffle… 🙂

    21… He ran even worse then his Lt. Gov candidate Vogel (who did embrace trump).

    Vogel got 32k more votes than he did (with 70%in..so still growing), that difference really does say something, that voters aren’t just going to vote for any gope guy just cause he’s who’s on the ticket.

    That said it’s VA and even if you swapped places on the ballot still would have lost, just would have been closer.

    Corey Stewart would have been 10x better.

    Just sayin

  25. 2017 November 7 7:19 pm

    23 – Yes that was the problem rino stooge that had already lost in VA.


  26. 2017 November 7 7:20 pm

    23 – Yes that was the problem rino stooge that had already lost in VA and the fact of course that it’s VA, a blue state for several cycles now.

    There really is no difference between the GOPe and the Dims.

    Those results are awful. Trump lost VA by 5.

    Turd Palace always loses.

    One would expect this from ground zero of left wing gubmint types.

    Looking at a 8-9 point loss.

    Toss VA

    As I’ve seen a number of people comment, the way to put VA into play is reduce the effect of federal money in politics. IOW, reduce the number of govt employees bigly.
    Which would be a win/win.

    Sounds like Harvey was channeling Ernst Röhm, or at least the SA tactics.
