Skip to comments.Firm behind "Dossier" Joined Lobbying Effort to Kill Pro-Whistleblower Sanctions on Kremlin

WASHINGTON Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is asking whether a suspected former Russian intelligence officer-turned U.S. lobbyist and the firm behind the unsubstantiated anti-Trump dossier should have registered as foreign agents for their efforts to bring down a U.S. law on behalf of the Kremlin. According to a complaint filed with the Justice Department, Fusion GPS, which was also involved in the creation of the unsubstantiated dossier alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, was involved in the pro-Russia campaign to kill the Global Magnitsky Act around the same time.
In 2012, President Obama signed into law the Magnitsky Act, named for a lawyer who suspiciously died in Russian custody after accusing Russian government officials and members of organized crime of using corporate identity theft against Hermitage Capital Management to fraudulently obtain and launder $230 million, some of which allegedly ended up in U.S. real estate projects. The Magnitsky Act imposed sanctions against those involved as well as other Russians designated as human rights abusers. . .

Well that would be really interesting. . .
all the sudden Grassley seems to be on the ball... what gives?
But the San Antonio Chihuahua Joquin Castro said there will be charges on some of Trump’s team. He is on the intelligence committee and has seen evidence, unspecific, but more importantly he is an ambitious Democrat so, you know. He is confident Russia, Russia, Russia, blah, blah, blah.
He had to start yapping to bring his base back to Russia and help them ignore Rice etc.
Seriously, all the Dems have is ‘two investigations’ to hammer. IS there anything seriously pertaining to Russia concerning anyone other than Hillary and Podesta? I am sick of this but the media and liberals are convinced. How long can the ‘investigations’ last? Thankfully Grassley is speaking up.
