Firm That Helped Fabricate Fake Trump Dossier Refuses to Answer Questions Before House Intelligence Committee

Remember Fusion GPS?  The former MI6 operative, Christopher Steele, was hired by the corporate espionage firm to dig up dirt on Trump, but came up with a fabricated smear instead.

They’re still refusing to talk about the crime they committed.

 

From Fox News

Two top officials at the political research firm behind a salacious dossier alleging various Russian connections to President Trump’s campaign invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination before the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday.

Fusion GPS co-founder Peter Fritsch and top lieutenant Thomas Catan were subpoenaed to appear before the committee in a closed-door session on Wednesday but asserted their right not to testify, a source close to the matter told Fox News.

Fritsch and Catan took the Fifth on every question posed by committee members. Another co-founder, Glenn Simpson, is under subpoena for a later date.

The move was expected.

“No American should experience the indignity that occurred today,” Fusion lawyer Joshua Levy said. “No American should be compelled to appear before a congressional committee just to invoke constitutional privileges.”

You committed fraud in an attempt to help Obama engage in sedition. You are not above the law, nor are you immune from the consequences, regardless of your hubris.

A source close to the matter told Fox News that Democratic staffers in the hearing were aggressive and ran interference to protect Fusion GPS, often interrupting questions by Republican members on the committee.

On Monday, Levy said in a letter to the panel that House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., was acting “in bad faith.”

“Based on this Committee’s bad faith interactions with the undersigned counsel and its pattern of unprofessional conduct exhibited during different points throughout this investigation, you have left us with no choice but to advise our clients to assert their privileges in the face of these subpoenas,” he wrote, in a 17-page list of reasons why the company would not comply.

……A congressional official familiar with the matter fired back, saying in a statement to Fox News:

“Democrats and Fusion GPS have tried to obstruct every effort to get the facts about the compilation of the Steele dossier and who paid for it, so it’s no surprise that Fusion GPS is saying they’ll continue to obstruct these efforts. Fusion GPS is clearly paving the way to plead the fifth, and Congress is trying to find out if they’re trying to hide something.”

 

The fake dossiers’ bizarre journey:

Carl Bernstein suggested that John McCain was handed it by a former British ambassador to Moscow.
Bernstein told CNN: ‘It came from a former British MI6 agent who was hired from a political opposition research firm in Washington who was doing work about Donald Trump for both republican and democratic candidates opposed to Trump.’

Subsequently, the  leftwing morons at Buzzfeed and  CNN  jumped at the chance to print the fake news.

The incredible lengths to which the Obama regime went in order to subvert the election is one for the record books. Along with this lurid fake dossier, Obama also engaged in wiretaps to dig for dirt in an effort to target Trump’s campaign and just in case he won, to sabotage his administration.  The FBI which was then headed by corruptocrat James Comey, offered to pay $50,000 for the documents.

They found no wrong doing, and won’t admit to the wiretaps or the lack of evidence.

Since GPS is obstructing justice, Jeff Sessions needs to issue search warrants and raid their offices.
