But if you think the company name was to small to be fusion, how do you think it could be palantir?
During a House Judiciary Committee hearing last month, Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said the Justice Department has committed to turning over a large number of those records by Jan. 15.

The Inspector General report is due out Monday.
Last I heard it was due sometime in March. Do you have a source on this? I've been waiting for this too.
On January 15, the DOJ's internal watchdog - the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), is expected to present their findings to Congressional investigators regarding a wide variety of alleged bias and malfeasance by the FBI, the Clinton campaign, and the Obama Administration - both during and after the 2016 election. Moreover, the man heading up the OIG investigation, Michael Horowitz, fought the Obama Administration to regain investigative powers which were restricted by former Attorney General Eric Holder during the Fast and Furious scandal.

I just heard that Simpson, the head of Fusion GPS., admitted yesterday that there is no FBI Insider inside the Trump campaign or Trump Administration.
A lot of people are trying to correct this story or hide or some other thing.
A co-founder of the opposition research firm Fusion GPS acknowledged in a new court document that his company hired the wife of a senior Justice Department official to help investigate then-candidate Donald Trump last year.
The confirmation from Glenn Simpson came in a signed declaration filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., and provided a fuller picture of the nature of Nellie Ohr’s work – after Fox News first reported on her connection to Fusion GPS.
Her husband, Bruce Ohr, was demoted at the DOJ last week for concealing his meetings with the same company, which commissioned the anti-Trump “dossier” containing salacious allegations about the now-president. Together, the Fusion connections for Mr. and Mrs. Ohr have raised Republican concerns about objectivity at the Justice Department, and even spurred a call from Trump’s outside counsel for a separate special prosecutor.
Simpson’s statement shows Mrs. Ohr was indeed involved in the Trump research. He said bank records reflect Fusion GPS contracted with her “to help our company with its research and analysis of Mr. Trump.”

The FBI should be disbanded. I see nothing to trust from them.
Thugs with no honor or integrity.
I dont like the FBI and now will celebrate when bad things happen to them.
They are not one of us. They live above the law. So why do we place ourselves below them?
Screw then law I guess.

I love it how politicians, lawyers, TV newscasters all dance around legalese so as to confuse, confound and provide confirmation bias to the eager-to-be-offended.
Here is the short, around the campfire, version:
Obama, Hillary and everyone working for them used whatever means were at their disposal to get info on Trump during the 2016 US Presidential campaign, so they created a document in order to carry out their agenda of spying on all-things-Trump. They did this with impunity because the TV's were belly-laughing at the thought of a Trump presidency and it was a 'shoe-in' for Ol Dodgy to gain the throne. They didn't count on Trump winning and their little game being exposed.
.......and at the head of this snake you can guarantee Ol Dodgy was calling ALL the shots.
Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta met with the founder of the opposition research firm behind the Trump dossier just after the dirty document was published earlier this year, according to a new report in The New York Times.
The revelation is significant because Podesta, a longtime Democratic operative, recently told the Senate Intelligence Committee that he did not know who paid the research firm, Fusion GPS, to produce the dossier, which BuzzFeed published on Jan. 10.
An associate of Podesta’s told The Times that he met with Glenn Simpson, the founding partner of Fusion GPS, to compare notes about Russia’s meddling in the election.
Podesta’s associate told The Times that Simpson was considering whether his firm should continue its investigation of Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.
The Times report does not say whether Podesta and Simpson discussed the Clinton campaign’s involvement in the dossier project.
It was reported last month that Perkins Coie, the law firm that represented the Clinton campaign and DNC, hired Fusion GPS in April 2016 to investigate Trump. Fusion hired former British spy Christopher Steele that June to investigate Trump’s activities in Russia.
