THE DAILY CALLER - House Republicans plan to submit criminal referrals against Fusion GPS associates, North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows said on Tuesday. Speaking at an event hosted by The Washington Post, Meadows said that he has “great concerns” with how the Fusion-funded Steele dossier was
used in the investigation of President Donald Trump. Meadows did not identify the targets of the referrals, but Republicans have accused Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson of making false statements during his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee in November 2017.
Meadows said the criminal referrals would be related to the phony dossier and Fusion GPS, the oppo research firm which commissioned dossier author Christopher Steele.
Perkins Coie, the law firm representing Hillary Clinton’s campaign, hired Fusion GPS in April of 2016 to dig up dirt on Trump’s campaign.
Fusion GPS then hired former British spy Christopher Steele to reach out to his Russian intel sources to dig up dirt on Trump’s camp — Steele ended up compiling a 35-page garbage dossier, full of unverified, salacious allegations against Trump and members of his campaign.
The phony dossier formed an essential part of the FBI’s investigation into Trump’s campaign and was used to obtain a FISA warrant and three subsequent renewals on Carter Page.
According to Meadows “I can tell you that there are two or three individuals that we believe could have potentially given false testimony to Congress. We have been looking at that, reviewing not only the Mueller report, but comparing those to transcribed interviews that might have happened in Congress.” This he said on Tuesday at an event hosted by Washington Post.
