Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm with ties to the Democrat Party, reportedly received funding from senior Russian government officials around the time it was putting together its infamous bogus dossier alleging – among many things – that President Donald Trump once hired prostitutes to pee on a Russian hotel bed that had been previously occupied by Barack and Michelle Obama.
This latest twist in the tale to uncover Fusion GPS’s motivations for creating the dossier was detailed by American Majority Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ned Ryun speaking with Breitbart News Daily.
Ryun’s sourcing for the information he divulged was Hermitage Capital CEO Bill Browder’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding Fusion GPS’s ties to the Russian government and the firm’s efforts to smear him and his attorney, Sergei Magnitsky, who died in Russian custody in 2009.
“There was some pretty staggering stuff that came out [on Wednesday],” Ryun told Breitbart News Daily. “One was, Lindsey Graham asked him under oath, ‘Do you think that there were Russians involved in funding Fusion’s Work?’ His response under oath was, in the spring and summer of 2016, they were receiving money indirectly from senior Russian government officials.”

“The thing that I want people to understand is, Fusion GPS calls itself an oppo research firm,” Ryun continued. “They are a disinformation firm. Much of what they do is not based in reality or fact. They are hired guns to destroy the opponents of those that are paying Fusion money.”
Ryun continued, “the second thing that I thought was staggering was when Chuck Grassley asked him, ‘Do you think that reporters were being paid money to push Fusion’s dossier and other lines of attack against them, regarding the Magnitsky Act?’ And he responded and said, ‘I am convinced that there are, in fact.’”
