Fusion GPS revealed to have pushed Russia collusion story to numerous outlets

"The above record reflects clearly that Fusion GPS did not treat as sufficiently confidential in the first place the very categories of information that it now seeks to withhold from the Government."

A new release from Special counsel John Durham has revealed that research firm Fusion GPS sent hundreds of emails to reporters at numerous outlets pushing the false Russia collusion story.

The latest legal document comes in the case against Hillary Clinton lawyer Michael Sussmann, where a filing has been made to keep Fusion GPS’ research private under attorney-client privilege.

Durham argues though that the slew of emails between Fusion GPS and numerous outlets pushing stories regarding former President Donald Trump, who was then a candidate for president, and Russia, made no effort to keep the details confidential, and does not reference any lawyers.

"…Fusion GPS records themselves – none of which copy or contain reference to a single lawyer – reflect that far from acting primarily as a confidential expert or legal advisor on these issues, the firm functioned instead as an aggressive disseminator of information," the document states.

"While counsel for Fusion GPS and the aforementioned privilege holders now seek retroactively to throw a blanket of privilege over such internal communications and research, this change of tack lacks support in the law. The above record reflects clearly that Fusion GPS did not treat as sufficiently confidential in the first place the very categories of information that it now seeks to withhold from the Government. Fusion GPS therefore did not adequately maintain, and at the very least has now waived, the confidentiality of the foregoing categories of information," the document reads.

The document references emails dating beginning in May of 2016, sent from Fusion GPS to outlets that included Slate, the Wall Street Journal, ABC News, The Washington Post, the New York Times, Yahoo News, and more.

Speaking in reference to the document, Human Events Daily host Jack Posobiec said, "They're getting the story from Fusion GPS and they're shopping it around. They're shopping the story around to all their buddies in media. These people aren't investigators. They're regurgitators [sic]. They're people who are getting this false information from Fusion GPS — and this is where it starts, these little emails, these little pings. 'Hey, buddy. Hey buddy. Just heard something bad about Trump and Russia.' 'Hey, hey, there's this document might be coming. We got some spies, big time stuff. His name is Chris Steele. I can't wait to see it.' That's how they were working. And these media characters, these clowns, they just run with it."

"We know that they took this information and they didn't vet it. They didn't do any work. You know, at one point a guy at the Washington Post says, 'Well, you know, I've got a source in Moscow that says all this stuff is all BS. It's not real.' But they ended up running the story anyway," he continued.

"This shows you that all of corporate media is a house of cards. This shows you what journalism is in America today. They got the documents. They got a story and a narrative that fit their preconceived biases, and they decided to run with it. Every single one of them," he concluded.
