Rights Leader: Fusion GPS Paid “a Whole Bunch” of Reporters in Cash to
Spread Smear on Trump (Video)
of the century—
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.
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.
on Wednesday night investigative reporter Todd
Shepherd from the Washington

Kilmeade to discuss the scandal. Thor
Halvorssen, who was a victim of a Fusion GPS smear campaign,
then dropped this bomb.
Halvorssen: What Fusion GPS does is create

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
