Obama’s presidential campaign secretly paid millions to the controversial firm in 2012 to look into then-Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
In a recently published book titled, “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” the authors stated Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign hid payments to the firm to investigate Romney.
Obama’s campaign funneled the money to Fusion GPS through its law firm, Perkins Coie, to conceal what the funds were used to carry out.
They paid Perkins Coie nearly $3 million, but Federal Election Commission records reveal the payments were listed as “Legal Services.”
By using an arbitrary listing such as “legal services,” it doesn’t specify where the payments went and what the controversial group used the money to do.
“As had become standard practice in the shadowy world of ‘oppo’ research, the Obama campaign’s payments to Fusion GPS were never publicly disclosed; the money paid to the investigative firm was reported on campaign disclosure reports as legal bills to the campaign’s law firm, Perkins Coie,” the book reads.
This revelation is important because Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign also used Perkins Coie millions to conduct “research” against President Donald Trump.
Clinton not only worked closely with Fusion GPS, her corrupt scheme with the firm triggered the Russia investigation against Trump.
Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid Fusion GPS — through Perkins Coie — roughly $9.6 million to fund former British spy Christopher Steele’s operation.
Steele was hired by Fusion GPS to compile the salacious dossier, which made a slew of claims about Trump allegedly colluding with Russia.
The Clinton-funded dossier was used by the FBI to obtain a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to spy on Trump’s entire campaign.
Clinton, Fusion GPS, and Perkins Coie colluded to compile a phony dossier that triggered the Russia investigation.
Fusion GPS being paid millions by both Obama and Clinton’s campaign raises serious questions about what they are doing to attack republicans.
While democrats and the media refuse to investigate these reports, it’s important to question why Fusion GPS has so much power with democrats.
