Investigators suspect that journalists were paid to push Fake Russia-Trump Dossier

Investigators are now attempting to look into if any Journalists were paid to push the now discredited Russia-Trump dossier:

The Washington Times:

The role of reporters is taking on added importance in federal court battles over the infamous Russia dossier that leveled unverified charges of collusion against the Donald Trump campaign.

In U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Fusion GPS, the dossier’s financier via the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign money, is fighting a House committee chairman’s bid to find out if the opposition research firm paid journalists.

In U.S. District Court in Florida, a self-described dossier victim wants a judge to order the news website BuzzFeed, which published the dossier in full, to disclose who gave it to them.

Although Fusion GPS claims they did nothing wrong the didn’t deny offering money to journalists.

On the demand for information on any payments to journalists, Fusion cited First Amendment protection and confidentiality. It did not deny it had paid journalists.

This is a huge story because it shows us that this Dossier was more than just research. This Dossier was met to smear Trump and even Fusion GPS was willing to pay for this unverified claims to be pushed.
