Republican Rep. Mark Meadows announced on Tuesday that he plans to submit criminal referrals against two to three Fusion GPS-related persons before the Department of Justice.
Fusion GPS is in charge of conducting the fake and bogus “opposition research” against President Trump in relation to “Russian collusion,” which ultimately produced the fake and phony Steele Dossier, according to Daily Caller.
“I can tell you that there are two or three individuals that we believe could have potentially given false testimony to Congress. We have been looking at that, reviewing not only the Mueller report, but comparing those to transcribed interviews that might have happened in Congress,” Meadows said.
“I do have great concerns on the role, not just Fusion GPS, but those associated with it played early on, and how was that used or not used as it relates to this investigation,” Meadows continued.
The Daily Caller reported:
Fusion GPS was hired in April 2016 by the law firm representing the Clinton campaign and DNC. From there, Fusion hired former British spy Christopher Steele to gather dirt on Donald Trump and his possible ties to Russia.
The result was a 35-page report that now appears to have contained false allegations of collusion between the Trump team and Russian government. The special counsel found no evidence of a conspiracy between Trump world and the Kremlin to influence the 2016 election.
Though the dossier appears flawed, the FBI relied heavily on Steele’s reporting for its collusion investigation. The bureau went as far as citing the report extensively in applications for surveillance warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Obama’s FBI knew from day one that the dossier contained fake and misleading information.
House republicans have strong reasons to believe that Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS, lied before the House of Justice in 2017 during his testimony.
The Daily Caller added:
Republicans have claimed that Simpson lied when he claimed he met with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr only after the 2016 election. But Ohr testified on Aug. 28, 2018 to a congressional task force that he met with Simpson on Aug. 22, 2016.
Republican Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe said on Oct. 14 that he believed Simpson was “in real legal jeopardy” over his congressional testimony.
Ohr served as Steele’s handler after the election because the FBI cut ties with the former spy.
Ohr’s wife is Nellie Ohr, a Russia expert who worked as a contractor for Fusion GPS from late 2015 through September 2016. She also testified to a congressional task force made up of members of the House Oversight and House Judiciary Committees.
