Not to beat a dead horse but it seems that the media is doing a great job of trying to reinvent the truth about the Trump Tower meeting between Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer. We’d like to remind them that Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS met with the Russian lawyer before and after the meeting…Fishy? You bet!
Lou Dobbs goes after Fusion GPS and their connections to the DNC in the video below…The evidence is clear that the Trump Jr. meeting with a Russian lawyer was a total set up by Fusion GPS…Was the Hillary camp responsible? How involved was the Obama administration? Dobbs names several in the Obama administration who could have been involved in the set-up…
HERE’S OUR PREVIOUS REPORT:
Was the meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, that special counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating, as part of his probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, a set up by the Hillary Campaign?
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.
The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya occurred during a critical period. At that time, Fox News has learned that bank records show Fusion GPS was paid by a law firm for work on behalf of a Kremlin-linked oligarch while paying former British spy Christopher Steele to dig up dirt on Trump through his Russian contacts.
But 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.
The DNC and Clinton campaign hired Fusion in April 2016 through lawyer Marc Elias, who was general counsel for the Clinton campaign. Fusion, in turn, paid Steele $168,000 for the dossier, memos from which were shared with the FBI in the summer of 2016.
Fusion officials said last week Steele’s money came from $1.02 million it received in fees and expenses from Elias’ law firm Perkins Coie.
Mueller’s interest in Fusion is unclear, but the House Intelligence Committee, which is conducting one of several related congressional probes, recently struck a deal to gain access to Fusion’s bank records after initially issuing a subpoena. The records show that the DNC funded Fusion’s dossier effort.
Over the weekend, Fusion GPS sought a new restraining order after the House panel requested additional records that could reveal if Fusion was paying media companies or reporters for planting stories.
“What we are finding out is that there is a lot of Russian influence in Washington, and a lot of money flowing in to influence our political process in Washington,” Marc Thiessen, a Washington Post columnist and former Bush administration official, said. “It’s going into Hillary Clinton. It’s going to Fusion GPS. It’s going into a lobbying campaign up on Capitol Hill against Magnitsky.”
According to Gateway Pundit– It gets worse…
Reuters reported that the memo Veselnitskaya presented to Don Jr at Trump Tower was PREPARED BY FUSION GPS….yes the same firm that Hillary’s camp paid millions of dollars to for the garbage Russia dossier.
Veselnitskaya was also given special entry to the US by the Obama administration via The Hill:
The Homeland Security Department confirmed Friday that Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was granted special entry to the United States on multiple occasions in 2015 and 2016 at the request of the Justice Department.
It also said Veselnitskaya eventually won a nonimmigrant work visa around the time she met President Trump’s eldest son in New York last summer.
Homeland told The Hill that Veselnitskaya was allowed to enter the United States on multiple occasions between September 2015 and February 2016 under a “Significant Public Benefit Parole” document requested by the Justice Department so she could participate in a court case for a client.
