Fusion GPS has been the center of controversy surrounding the 2016 election, and a new bombshell just blew the case wide open.

For those unaware, Fusion is the Demokrat-connected [sic] smear company that was hired by Hillary Clinton and the DNC to create the so-called “Russian dossier” – a file full of slanderous and salacious lies about President Trump that was created by Kremlin operatives. Ever since the election, both Hillary and the Democrats have denied knowledge of who paid Fusion to contract with British spy Christopher Steele to obtain to dossier, however, their denials were recently proven wrong when we learned both Hillary and the DNC paid Fusion for their work.

Now, another massive bombshell has been discovered in the bank records from Fusion – they accepted payments from a Russian money launderer.

From the Daily Caller [emphasis mine]:

The records show that Fusion was also paid $523,651 by the law firm BakerHostetler between March 7, 2016 and Oct. 31, 2016.

Fusion worked for BakerHostetler to investigate Bill Browder, a London-based banker who helped push through the Magnitsky Act, a sanctions law vehemently opposed by the Kremlin.

BakerHostetler represented Prevezon Holdings and its owner, a Russian businessman named Denis Katsyv.

Katsyv and Prevezon sought to limit the impact of the Magnitsky sanctions.

Katsyv was one of three lobbyists hired by Putin to have the Magnitsky Act overturned. To get the proper background on Katsyv, below is a portion of Browder’s testimony to Congress in 2010:

Who was this group of Russians acting on behalf of the Russian state? Two men named Pyotr and Denis Katsyv, a woman named Natalia Veselnitskaya, and a large group of American lobbyists, all of whom are described below.

Pyotr Katsyv, father to Denis Katsyv, is a senior Russian government official and well-placed member of the Putin regime; Denis Katsyv was caught by U.S. law enforcement using proceeds from the crime that Sergei Magnitsky uncovered to purchase high-end Manhattan real estate (the case recently settled with the Katsyv’s paying $6 million to the U.S. government). Natalia Veselnitskaya was their lawyer.

In addition to working on the Katsyv’ s money laundering defense, Ms. Veselnitskaya also headed the aforementioned lobbying campaign to repeal the Magnitsky Act. She hired a number of lobbyists, public relations executives, lawyers, and investigators to assist her in this task.

Veselnitskaya, through Baker Hostetler, hired Glenn Simpson of the firm Fusion GPS to conduct a smear campaign against me and Sergei Magnitsky in advance of congressional hearings on the Global Magnitsky Act. He contacted a number of major newspapers and other publications to spread false information that Sergei Magnitsky was not murdered, was not a whistle-blower, and was instead a criminal. They also spread false information that my presentations to lawmakers around the world were untrue.

Additonally, it’s been well documented that Fusion and Veselnitskaya have had a close relationship for some time, with Veselnitskaya meeting with Fusion’s founder Glenn Simpson just hours before the infamous meeting she had with Donald Trump, Jr. at Trump Tower in Mahattan – a meeting that was set up by Fusion associate Rob Goldstone. Additionally, Veselnitskaya met with Simpson the day after the Trump Tower meeting, further casting doubts on Simpson’s claim that he knew nothing about her meeting with Trump, Jr.

So while the Democrats continue to look for “Russian collusion” within the Trump campaign, we have yet even more solid evidence that it wasn’t the Trump’s “colluding” with the Russians, but instead Team Hillary and the numerous firms that helped with her campaign.

In other words, it’s time for a special prosecutor to be appointed to look into this…now.
