Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the uncorroborated Trump dossier, filed a last-minute request with a federal judge in Washington, D.C. on Friday seeking to prevent the release of its bank records to the House Intelligence Committee.
Fusion, which is based in Washington, D.C., filed a motion asking U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan to approve an injunction preventing its bank, TD Bank, from having to turn over two years worth of banking records to the House committee.
Republicans on the committee are looking for answers on several aspects on the dossier, including who paid Fusion GPS to commission the document as well as how heavily the FBI and Justice Department relied on the document to form the basis of its investigation into Russian interference in the presidential campaign.
Trump and members of his campaign have denied the dossiers most salacious allegations, including that the Kremlin blackmailed Trump and that Trump campaign associates colluded with Russian operatives to influence the election.

According to Taylors filing, TD Bank informed Fusion GPS on Oct. 13 that it planned to comply with the subpoena, which requested the records by Monday, Oct. 23. TD Bank sought a delay in complying with the subpoena, but the committee rejected it, Taylor stated.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~We're getting closer to finding out who paid for the dossier...
John McCain is all giggly about this. He still doesn’t realize he got used in the dossier farce.
Pretty clear this was another Deep State disinformation move.
U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan
Same judge that ordered abortion for illegal immigrant. Obama appointed. We know which way she will rule. No bank records.
When will McCains banking records be subpoenaed?
Also remember what Evelyn Farkas said. They used this dossier as justification to obtain FISA warrants to eavesdrop on Trump.
>>I wish some reporter would ask lord McCain, IF his aide was the one who took Rick Wilson’s dirty dossier, to the UK in the first place. The dirty secret is the GOPe were the originators of the junk on candidate Trump. The GOPe did every thing they could to get Hillry elected president.
He’d never “allow” such a reporter to get near him. But they should still try.
You are right on about the GOPe’s dirty little ‘secret’.
Wrong. McTraitor was not used he was part of it.
In Fridays court filing, Fusions lawyer, William W. Taylor of the firm Zuckerman Spaeder, said that the House Intelligence Committee issued the subpoena to TD Bank without even telling Fusion. The committee, led by California Rep. Devin Nunes, sought Fusions bank records stretching back to Aug. 2015.
This is beyond the scope of understanding for snowflake journalists.
Used? McCain wants to take down Trump and block his agenda. McCain is no dupe. He is part of the swamp and the Establishment.
The most common legal path that I have seen that would open McCain’s records would be a RICO case. This is far from qualifying as a RICO case.
Using false evidence to obtain a warrant is subject to a perjury prosecution. Perhaps that is what President Trump meant about hitting back?
You left RINOs off of your list of candidates.
These corrupt characters often, as their modus operandi, use third parties to mask their connections said 3rd parties to be repaid by favors. Investigators need to be aware of that strong possibility.
The GOPe's Rick Wilson, originated the dirt, back in January 2016.. He passed it off to every media outlet in the country... Think back to Megan Kelly's question to Trump in that so called debate... and Saint Ted Cruz's snark about Trump's, New York values, before that... The whole GOPe including the so called conservative blow hards were all aware of the so called 'dirt' on Trump...
The dope didn’t get duped.
