House Intel Reaches Deal with Trump Dossier Firm

The House Intelligence Committee has reached a settlement with the firm that produced the dossier of allegations against President Trump, Fusion GPS, in order to gain access to the firm’s bank records. “The parties have reached an agreement related to the House Intelligence Committee's subpoena for Fusion GPS's bank records that will secure the Committee's access to the records necessary for its investigation,” a spokesman for Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the chairman of the committee, said in a statement on Saturday. Fusion GPS had attempted to block the committee’s access to its records, which would show who paid for the dossier that included salacious allegations about Trump’s connections to Russia. Over the last week, it has been revealed that Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the conservative website Washington Free Beacon all funded the research for the dossier, in addition to an unknown Republican presidential campaign.
