Serious question silly, would you be surprised if an international billionaire business mogul has international connections that stems way before he ever decided to become a president?

Why did Nunez send staffers if it's all not true? Why not just ignore it if it's a witch hunt?


Well let's start with this pretty basic idea:

You have a thing that says a bunch of stuff. The guy who wrote the thing says that some of it is categorically unverified and unsolicited information that he did not vet, nor did he intend for it to be released, much less used to discredit anybody. He only refers to specific sections within the thing that he wrote, not the entire thing.

What to do, what to do? Gah, here's an idea: lets have some people look into the whole thing to see if any of it can be verified.

The part where your premise fails is trying to use words that Trump has used to question why other people are looking into things. Mueller is looking into things because that's his job, and nothing Trump says has any bearing on that. People are investigating the dossier because of what's in it, and nothing Trump says has any bearing on that.

You're fabricating a connection between two things that aren't really all that connected.

Maybe some leaks are getting plugged. The raid happened two weeks ago.

Cnn


The Washington Post first reported the search, which it said happened on July 26, the day after Manafort met voluntarily with the staff for the Senate intelligence committee. The incident happened without advance warning before dawn, the paper reported.

Why do you consier it is Trump who is trying to dicredit Fusion GPS ?
They got discredited by their own BS.

Their line of defense is now, it is not Fusion GPS but a contractor Christopher Steele who penned the dossier.
Just trying to wash their hands, but the Steele Dossier is directly related to them, as Steele was their contractor.

If there's nothing to it why do it?


Like bleachbit?

____________________________________________

The question isn't if they went looking for the author of the dossier.

The question is if the author of the dossier was willing to cooperate.

Usually the answer to that is ""no comment" or (if in the States) "I plead the 5th".

The answer to that is that he's not willing to set foot in the US to talk to anybody about it. There's been "low key" overtures made about sending people to the UK to meet with him.

Source - I think it was an NY Post article. I'd have to find it again.

No one cares.
It's the money trail that's important. But do marginalize the whole thing by emphasizing the most lurid and also unverified information in the report. That way it suggests the whole thing is fiction.
Because that suits your belief system.

Umm because he has the most to loose, because he has to have his little hands in every aspect of this investigation.
Because he sent Devin to pick up information he already had on Susan Rice so that Denin could pretend to deliver it to him.
Because he fired Comey for not curtailing the investigation into Flynn.
Because he's tried everything else to stop the investigation?
Gee I don't know why I'd think that it's his doing...

was it not part of the dossier? You can't just ignore it, hell, it may well be the only part that is true.

I know, it makes you sad when you can't have it both ways.

Which is why they plan to go to London.
But Nunez sent these people and didn't tell anyone on any committee that he was doing it.
Why?
Why not tell the committee your still in charge of even though you're sort of recused from it?
Why did we only learn of this after the fact?
Why was Robert Mueller not informed?
More sneakyness. More lies, more hiding and secrets.

So they waste more money on a trip to Europe? For something that's not real?

Chasing your tail.
That's what I'd call that.
Why?


Your are digging yourself a hole here with this thread.
The point is...if you don't investigate the alleged tale, you really cannot call it an investigation.
Of course they are going to want to question the author of this fantasy tale to get to the bottom of who hired him to fabricate it.

You're missing my point. I don't care if that's true. No one does except maybe Melania but who knows maybe she encouraged it. Doesn't matter.
The parts that have been verified regarding trump and the Russian government are what is of interest to me and I'm guessing to the investigations. All of them.
I'm not looking to have anything both ways.
And it sure doesn't mean that if part of it is incorrect all of it is.
That's faulty logic.
Oh I just love auto correct. Lol.

There is nothing to fear from a bunch of unsubstanciated/unverified report denied by its own author.
This report is an embarasment for those who commisionned it.

Sketchy firm behind Trump dossier is stalling investigators


Fusion GPS was on the payroll of an unidentified Democratic ally of Clinton when it hired a long-retired British spy to dig up dirt on Trump. In 2012, Democrats hired Fusion GPS to uncover dirt on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. And in 2015, Democratic ally Planned Parenthood retained Fusion GPS to investigate pro-life activists protesting the abortion group.

Moreover, federal records show a key co-founder and partner in the firm was a Hillary Clinton donor and supporter of her presidential campaign.

In September 2016, while Fusion GPS was quietly shopping the dirty dossier on Trump around Washington, its co-founder and partner Peter R. Fritsch contributed at least $1,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund and the Hillary For America campaign, Federal Election Commission data show. His wife also donated money to Hillary’s campaign.

Property records show that in June 2016, as Clinton allies bankrolled Fusion GPS, Fritsch bought a six-bedroom, five-bathroom home in Bethesda, Md., for $2.3 million.

Fritsch did not respond to requests for comment. A lawyer for Fusion GPS said the firm’s work is confidential.



The Senate Judiciary Committee is also investigating whether the FBI has wrongly relied on the anti-Trump dossier and its author, Christopher Steele — the old spy who was hired by Fusion GPS to build a Russia file on Trump — to aid its ongoing espionage investigation into the Trump campaign and its possible ties to Moscow.

The FBI received a copy of the Democrat-funded dossier in August, during the heat of the campaign, and is said to have contracted in October to pay Steele $50,000 to help corroborate the dirt on Trump — a relationship that “raises substantial questions about the independence” of the bureau in investigating Trump, warned Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).

Senate investigators are demanding to see records of communications between Fusion GPS and the FBI and the Justice Department, including any contacts with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, now under congressional investigation for possibly obstructing the Hillary Clinton email probe, and deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, who is under investigation by the Senate and the Justice inspector general for failing to recuse himself despite financial and political connections to the Clinton campaign through his Democratic activist wife. Senate investigators have singled out McCabe as the FBI official who negotiated with Steele.

Like Fusion GPS, the FBI has failed to cooperate with congressional investigators seeking documents.

Steele contracted with Fusion GPS to investigate Trump’s ties to Russia starting in June 2016, whereupon he outlandishly claimed that Hillary campaign hackers were “paid by both Trump’s team and the Kremlin” and that the operation was run out of Putin’s office. He also fed Fusion GPS and its Hillary-allied clients incredulous gossip about Trump hating the Obamas so much that he hired hookers to urinate on a bed they slept in at the Moscow Ritz-Carlton, and that Russian intelligence recorded the pee party in case they needed to blackmail Trump.

Am I? Why do you think I'm digging a hole?
They are investigating. Why didn't Nunez tell anyone at all. Not on his committee not the the congressional judiciary committee not Bob Mueller. No one.
My guess, he wants to discredit Steele somehow or get him to back off his claims.
This was not done on the up and up.

Lol lots of it have already been verified. Why do this in secret. Not even tell your own committee which is in full swing investigating this?
Because they were doing something underhanded and sneaky again.
