Washington, DC – Politics can be a dirty business, and that’s just fine with those who run the shadowy Fusion GPS. Their company has made millions dishing out the dirt.
Fusion GPS is often referred to as an “opposition research” group, but it has gone much farther than just documenting negative information on political opponents. When there is no dirt to be found, it appears that Fusion GPS has no qualms about manufacturing their own dirt.
That crosses the line and becomes a political dirty trick.
The biggest dirty trick of all was the so-called “Russian Dossier” produced by Fusion GPS that smeared the Trump Campaign last year with unfounded allegations of Russian collusion. Fox News host Sean Hannity has insisted that dossier is full of “lies, misinformation and propaganda.”
The Fusion GPS fake dirt-dump was funded by the DNC, the Clinton Campaign, and Barack Obama’s political organization, Obama For America. The money used to pay Fusion GPS was filtered through an attorney to avoid showing up on campaign finance reports in what some have been calling a money laundering scheme.
The fake dossier itself has been exposed as a spurious attempt to smear Trump and influence the 2016 Presidential Election.
Now, Fusion GPS’s gutter level tactics are under investigation by the House Intelligence Committee.
But this isn’t the first time that Fusion GPS has been well paid for manufacturing falsehoods.
In 2015, Planned Parenthood was reeling from negative publicity due to the release of damning undercover videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress that showed Planned Parenthood executives in their own words haggling over the best price in exchange for aborted baby body parts and confessing to other crimes.
In an attempt to diffuse the outcry, Planned Parenthood hired Fusion GPS to conduct a “forensic analysis” of the videos, which were mostly in the form of brief summaries compiled from hours of raw video.
Planned Parenthood got what they paid for.
The Fusion GPS report falsely declared that since the videos had been edited, they were therefore fake. Planned Parenthood pushed the phony report out as gospel truth to a willing mainstream media that never bothered to question whether Fusion GPS had the qualifications to conduct a “forensic analysis” of anything.
In truth, Fusion GPS has no known qualifications in the field of forensic video analysis. But what it does have is expertise in political dirty tricks that concoct “dirt” where there isn’t any.
In contrast, the legal group Alliance Defending Freedom commissioned an analysis of the same videos with Coalfire Systems, Inc., a company that does have credentials in the field of forensic video analysis and are experts in the field of information technology auditing. Their findings were diametrically opposite from the Fusion GPS pulp fiction manufactured to discredit the videos.
The Coalfire Systems report revealed that there was no audio manipulation in the videos. Sure, the videos were edited for length, but the report found that nothing presented was out of context. The Planned Parenthood executives caught on video clearly mean what the videos show them saying.
“How people can still believe that the CMP videos are fakes is astounding,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation and a founding board member of the Center for Medical Progress. “They are actually strong evidence that Planned Parenthood and others have committed crimes. No wonder Planned Parenthood hired Fusion GPS to lie about the videos.”
As a result, Senate and House Committees referred Planned Parenthood to the U.S. Attorney General for criminal prosecution in December, which has yet to take place.
Just like the so-called “Russian Dossier,” the Fusion GPS video report bought by Planned Parenthood was full of “lies, misinformation and propaganda.”
All this has revealed that Planned Parenthood, the DNC, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Fusion GPS are all joined at the hip in a circle of brazen political corruption, where lying, money laundering, and profiting from the mutilated corpses of dead babies can occur without conscience or consequence.
Clinton has been linked not only to Planned Parenthood, but also to the illegal trafficking in aborted baby remains.
In 2016, Operation Rescue released an exclusive exposé that showed how the wealthy Isaias crime family of Equador reached out to Clinton during her term as Secretary of State for asylum after looting millions of dollars from an Ecuadorian bank. After donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democratic politicians, the Clinton State Department expedited the family’s immigration into the U.S.
During this time, the Isaias family operated DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, located in Orange County, California. On October 11, 2016, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas filed suit against both Isaias companies for profiting from the illegal sale of aborted baby remains obtained from Planned Parenthood abortion facilities in Southern California.
Aside from her greedy lust for power, Clinton had a vested interest in making sure the CMP videos were discredited and Trump defeated, lest her own culpability in Planned Parenthood’s illegal baby-parts trafficking scheme be revealed. Likewise, Planned Parenthood was desperate to defeat Donald Trump to derail possibility of criminal investigations and protect their federal funding, which Trump had vowed to end.
The House Intelligence Committee has now requested Fusion GPS account statements from their bank in order to get to the bottom of exactly who paid for Fusion GPS dirty tricks.
Will the committee find evidence that Planned Parenthood had any part in funding the “Russian Dossier” in addition to the specious video report? If some were to surface, it would not be at all surprising.
It’s time to stop coddling Planned Parenthood and their high-powered political cronies who have repeatedly lied to the American people and have apparently broken the law to avoid accountability for their criminality. Attorney General Jeff Sessions must prosecute them all to the fullest extent of the law.
