The world already knows how deeply involved the Washington consulting firm Fusion GPS was in the creation of the so-called “dossier” that made “salacious,” and incidentally unverified, claims about then-candidate Donald Trump.
After all, it hired Michael Steele, the British ex-spy who consulted with his Russian sources and likely wrote up most of the claims.
It was being paid by the Hillary Clinton campaign to find the political “dirt” on Trump.
And the world knows the same company was all-in for the defense of Planned Parenthood, which was caught on undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress of officials talking about their lucrative trade in selling unborn baby body parts.
Now, the Daily Caller is reporting a new book is claiming Barack Obama also hired the company to dig up dirt on Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential candidate.
“The Obama campaign hid its payments to Fusion GPS through its law firm, Perkins Coie. The arrangement is similar to the one that the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee used to pay Fusion for its investigation of then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016,” the report said.
The Clinton contract “led to the creation of the infamous Steele dossier, which was written by former British spy Christopher Steele,” the DC reported.
It is “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on American and Donald Trump’s Election” by Michael Isikoff and David Corn, that makes the allegation.
“In 2012, Fusion GPS was hired to do opposition research on Mitt Romney for Barack Obama’s reelection campaign,” the book explains.
The authors are veteran reporters who met during the 2016 campaign with Steele and Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson.
