Attacks on the "Russian hack" narrative are coming from all sides. It won't be long until all the guilty parties in the Obama administration are thoroughly exposed. Hopefully, they will soon be in prison.

Trump Dossier Firm Has Been Subpoenaed In BuzzFeed Lawsuit

A Russian tech executive suing BuzzFeed News for defamation has formally subpoenaed Fusion GPS, the firm that commissioned the uncorroborated anti-Trump dossier that BuzzFeed published earlier this year.

Attorneys for Aleksej Gubarev, the CEO of Webzilla and XBT Holdings, disclosed in a court filing on Friday that they have subpoenaed the Washington, D.C.-based Fusion GPS as part of the suit against BuzzFeed...

Gubarev is suing BuzzFeed because he and his companies are identified in the last of 17 memos that make up the dossier, which the website published on Jan. 10...

In a Dec. 13 memo, the last of 17 memos that make up the dossier, Steele wrote that Gubarev used malware and computer viruses to hack into Democrats’ emails during the presidential campaign.

Gubarev has vehemently denied the allegations. He is suing BuzzFeed in federal court in Florida and Steele in London.

As part of the discovery process in both lawsuits, Gubarev’s attorneys hope to find out where Steele obtained the information that the tech entrepreneur was involved in hacking.

Fusion GPS may also be able to provide similar information, says Evan Fray-Witzer, a lawyer for Gubarev.

Fray-Witzer tells The Daily Caller that the legal team is looking for documents that explain how and why the dossier included allegations against Gubarev and his companies.

“Where did the information come from; was there any attempt at all to verify the information; who did it get passed to; and what were they told,” Fray-Witzer said of the information being sought.

Fray-Witzer says that it will be important to the case to determine if Fusion GPS provided caveats about the veracity of the information when it shared the dossier with news outlets.

Fusion GPS shared parts of the dossier with reporters from numerous news outlets, including The New York Times, Yahoo! News, and Mother Jones.

Steele has revealed in court filings in London, where he is being sued by Gubarev, that he was instructed by Fusion GPS to provide parts of the dossier to reporters and to meet with some in the U.S. He has also stated that he did not verify the claims about Gubarev.

But Steele has denied sharing the information about Gubarev with reporters. It is unclear whether Fusion GPS provided the entire dossier to BuzzFeed or whether the website obtained it from another source.

“If Fusion passed the information on with all sorts of caveats — that the information wasn’t verified, that it shouldn’t be published; or that it was unreliable — that’s the kind of information we definitely want to know,” says Fray-Witzer, who noted that Fusion GPS has acknowledged receipt of the legal team’s subpoena.

Also last week, the federal judge hearing the lawsuit awarded a minor victory to Gubarev’s legal team. Ursula Ungaro, the judge, granted a request filed by Gubarev’s team to request assistance from the U.K. court system to compel Steele to provide a deposition in the U.S. lawsuit.

Steele’s American lawyers attempted to block the motion, claiming that Gubarev’s lawyers are attempting to use his deposition in the U.S. case against him in the U.K. lawsuit.

As I have been saying from the beginning, I can't wait until this democrat witch hunt turns on the democrats. Since every result is the opposite of the liberal's stated intent, it should happen soon.

Two issues with the dossier that I can't wait to be addressed. Who paid for Steele to pay Russian informants and who worked to get McCain involved to bring it to Comey. I know that a Brit ambassador and McCain met up at a conference in I believe it was Nova Scotia and that McCain sent his man over to Britain to get a copy of the dossier.

But there is so much more to fill in. BTW McCain's foundation is part of this mystery. The head of the foundation is the same man that got the document in Britain and is a former State Department employee.

The Dossier is back! Rachel Maddow did a nice segment on it tonight. Fusion GPS has given the Senate permission to release to the public the transcript of Glenn Simpson's 10-hour testimony before the Senate. Also, Christopher Steele has given the names of his sources in the Dossier to the FBI.
