Durham: Fusion GPS Employees Sent Hundreds of Emails to Reporters

Staffers at the political research firm at the core of “Russiagate” sent hundreds of emails to journalists with unfounded charges and assertions about then-GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, according to Special Counsel John Durham’s court papers.

Durham said in a late Monday court filing that the flood of emails refutes the Clinton campaign’s assertions that Fusion GPS’s research on her behalf should be kept secret under attorney-client privilege.

Many False Stories

Among the unproven stories pushed by employees:

  •  A Wall Street Journal article about a Trump adviser meeting with a former KGB official close to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
  • A Washington Post story about a Trump campaign advisor investing in Russia.
  • New York Times and Reuters articles about the FBI investigating a secret communications setup between Trump and Russia’s Alfa Bank.

The so-called Steele Dossier was also pitched by these employees.
