Back in 2016, the firm behind the phony Steele Dossier pushed a journalist to spread fake news about President Trump.
Since the start of the 2016 campaign, it’s pretty obvious that the entire Dossier was phony–and that the Trump-Russia connection was a sham cooked up by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Finally, on Wednesday, a meeting participant testified that members of the research firm that commissioned the infamous “Steele dossier” met with a journalist to spread an incorrect theory linking Donald Trump and Russia after learning about it from former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann.
Their main target was President Trump, they are desperate of taking Trump away from the White House.
During the trial of Hillary’s campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, a member of the Fusion GPS Research Firm, Laura Seago, testified.
Seago, which concocted the Dossier along with former British spy Christopher Steele, testified that the firm had met with and lied to a journalist in order to get said journalist to push the fake Trump-Russia connection for them.
Here’s what the New York Post reported:
Seago told jurors at Sussmann’s trial that the meeting with Franklin Foer came after she was tasked with “translating” computer data that purported to show a secret back channel between a Trump Organization server and Russia’s Alfa Bank, so it could be understood by “a lay audience.”
Seago, Fusion GPS co-founder Peter Fritsch, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, and Fusion employee Jake Berkowitz, met up at Foer’s house in the fall of 2016, she said.
During the hourlong sit-down, they told Foer that the information had been vetted by “highly credible computer scientists” who “seemed to think these allegations were credible,” Seago testified.
Just 8 days prior to the election, Foer wrote a story titled “Was a Trump Server Communicating With Russia?”
Of course, everything that goes in and out of Fusion GPS was controlled by Clinton counsel Michael Sussmann and Marc Elias.
100 Percent Fedup commented further:
This was a coordinated effort by the Clinton campaign, their counsel such as Sussmann and Elias, and the research firm they hired Fusion GPS to manipulate the outcome of an election by lying to journalists, lying to the public, and producing disinformation across the board to discredit President Trump’s 2016 campaign.
More and more dirt keeps coming out in the trial of Michael Sussmann, thanks to special counsel John Durham,
