A federal judge ruled on Thursday that House investigators have the right to subpoena Fusion GPS’s bank records despite their efforts to block the move.
That should keep the Deep State and Democrats up at night.
The Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign paid for the research that led to the fake news Russia dossier.
The FBI then used this phony dossier to spy on members of the Trump campaign.
The house of cards is falling in on the Deep State crooks.
The Hill reported:
A federal judge ruled Thursday that the Washington-based firm Fusion GPS cannot block the House Intelligence Committee from subpoenaing the firm’s financial records, according to court documents.
Court records obtained by BuzzFeed News show that U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon denied Fusion GPS’s request for an injunction on the grounds that such a disclosure to Congress would violate the firm’s First Amendment rights.
“Because I find all of Fusion’s objections to the subpoena to be unavailing” the motion was denied, wrote Leon, an appointee of former President George W. Bush.

The House Intelligence Committee has been battling with Fusion GPS’s founders for months over testifying before Congress and turning over documents related to the funding of research during the 2016 campaign into then-candidate Donald Trump‘s background.
That research would eventually become part of a dossier of unverified claims linking Trump to Russia. Republicans have questioned what role the dossier may have played in the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign.
