    Fusion GPS Testimony Released.

    If you will remember, last week, Fusion GPS had a New York Times Op-Ed demanding release of their Senate testimony, a 12 hour hearing, because of Trump supporters' misrepresentations of that testimony. Thanks to GOP intransigence, that was not done. Now, Sen. Diane Feinstein took it upon herself to release it publically.

    You can now get it in all it's glory for your very own reading pleasure.

    Information wants to be free. Thank you Senator Feinstein.

    And right off the bat, the Republicans are trying to corner the representative of GPS, and trying to get him to say that he was paid to try and instigate an investigation.

    What is very troublesome is that while Trump has been a royal douchebag, the tyranny is the GOP maneuvers to protect what might be one of the largest scandals in our history.

    Reading the transcript now. Steele was hired to do an open ended investigation. To explore how Trump may have had dealing with the Russians. There was no real specific goal beyond that. When Steel developed info that the Russians were hacking the DNC and arranging meetings with the Trump organization, the now infamous June 9 Trump Tower meeting, Steele decided to contact GPS fusion and point out the seriousness and to take this info to US intelligence. Glenn Simpson of GPS concurred and so this was reported to proper US authorities.

    The GOP is misconstruing this as a hit on Trump but it was actually blowing the whistle on the Russian meddling in a US election. Trump was a secondary consideration. As was Trump and his people's deep involvement with the Russian kleptocrats.

    Simpson had known Steele for a decade and Steele had a good reputation as having good investigation skills and was a very trustworthy and capable investigator.

    This is going to go a long way to tying a big knot in the GOP smear machine's tail.

    The Republican spin on this pretty much makes certain I will never consider voting for a Republican again.
