Is it true that Republicans used Fusion GPS as well?
In June 2016 it was revealed that the Democratic National Committee website had been hacked by Russian sources, so Fusion GPS hired Orbis Business Intelligence, a private British intelligence firm, to look into any Russian connections. The investigation was undertaken by Orbis co-founder Christopher Steele, a retired British MI6 officer with expertise in Russian matters. Steele delivered his report as a series of two- or three-page memos, starting in June 2016 and continuing through December. He continued his investigation even after the Democratic client stopped paying for it following Trump's election
On his own initiative, Steele decided to also pass the information to British and American intelligence services because he believed the findings were a matter of national security for both countries. However, he became frustrated with the FBI, which he believed was failing to investigate his reports, choosing instead to focus on the Hillary Clinton's email investigation. According to The Independent, Steele came to believe that there was a "cabal" inside the FBI, particularly its New York field office linked to Trump advisor Rudy Giuliani, which blocked any attempts to investigate the links between Trump and Russia. In October 2016, Steele passed on what he discovered so far to a reporter from Mother Jones magazine.
# me i just had an epiphany. What if FusionGPS was a honeypot for the DNC all along?

I think she is the rep for shady dealings in Russia and knew the secret handshakes for those who deal in shadiness over here. She met with DJTJr to see if the new administration was going to play the same games all previous ones have. Junior noped out and decided to out her in the process by releasing the emails; that story many have since drooled and slobbered over saying he outed himself and the other colluders.
And here we are today with FusionGPS noping out of a congressional hearing.
