A new book is out that reports clandestine payments to Fusion GPS, funneled through Perkins Coie law firm, for opposition research supplied to Barack Obama’s campaign in 2012.
Fusion GPS reportedly conducted a deep-dive not just into Mitt Romney’s campaign but also into his donors’ lives and businesses as well.
After the dirt hit the Internet, at least two Romney donors found themselves the subject of audits and investigations by the federal government.
Given what we now know about Fusion’s role in the Trump dossier, none of this news comes as any surprise at all.
Fusion is and has been the attack dog of the DNC and liberals for a decade. And now’s the time to investigate how far the rabbit hole really goes.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
A new book claims that the Barack Obama presidential campaign hired Fusion GPS in 2012 to dig up dirt on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, The Daily Caller reports.
Obama for America (OFA) reportedly obscured its payments to Fusion GPS through Perkins Coie, an international law firm, in an arrangement similar to the one that the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee used to pay Fusion to dig up dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016.
In 2012, Fusion reportedly dug up dirt on Romney’s donors as well so that the Obama campaign could publicly slime them on its official website.
Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show that OFA has paid over $972,000 to Perkins Coie, an international law firm, since April of 2016.
The book, “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and Donald Trump’s Election” by Michael Isikoff and David Corn alleges that OFA hired Fusion GPS to do opposition research on Mitt Romney for Barack Obama’s reelection campaign.
