The scandal behind the discredited Russia-Trump dossier deepened this week as it was discovered that Fusion GPS received money from the Russians and DNC to write their slanderous report on Donald Trump.
And then it was discovered that Fusion GPS paid at least three journalists during and after the election to push the phony dossier. The three reporters were on the record reporting negative stories about Donald Trump.
And on Wednesday night investigative reporter Todd Shepherd from the Washington Examiner joined Brian Kilmeade to discuss the scandal. Thor Halvorssen, who was a victim of a Fusion GPS smear campaign, then dropped this bomb.
Thor Halvorssen: What Fusion GPS does is create fake news. They get paid to smear people. And the fact that the House investigators have found that these three journalists have been paid, they should unredact that. And I should note that just because it’s in their banking records doesn’t mean that there was a whole bunch of other journalists who didn’t get paid in cash. I have no doubt that they also paid journalists in cash. It’s what Fusion GPS does. And a lot of journalists don’t want it on the record so they take it in cash. This is a massive scandal.
Thor Halvorssen is a Venezuelan human rights advocate who was viciously smeared by Fusion GPS at the behest of the Marxist Chavez regime.
