Fusion GPS and the Washington Free Beacon

Since its launch in February of 2012, the Washington Free Beacon has retained third party firms to conduct research on many individuals and institutions of interest to us and our readers. In that capacity, during the 2016 election cycle we retained Fusion GPS to provide research on multiple candidates in the Republican presidential primary, just as we retained other firms to assist in our research into Hillary Clinton. All of the work that Fusion GPS provided to the Free Beacon was based on public sources, and none of the work product that the Free Beacon received appears in the Steele dossier. The Free Beacon had no knowledge of or connection to the Steele dossier, did not pay for the dossier, and never had contact with, knowledge of, or provided payment for any work performed by Christopher Steele. Nor did we have any knowledge of the relationship between Fusion GPS and the Democratic National Committee, Perkins Coie, and the Clinton campaign.
Representatives of the Free Beacon approached the House Intelligence Committee today and offered to answer what questions we can in their ongoing probe of Fusion GPS and the Steele dossier. But to be clear: We stand by our reporting, and we do not apologize for our methods. We consider it our duty to report verifiable information, not falsehoods or slander, and we believe that commitment has been well demonstrated by the quality of the journalism that we produce. The First Amendment guarantees our right to engage in news-gathering as we see fit, and we intend to continue doing just that as we have since the day we launched this project.

30 whole seconds...dang.
did anyone just see Fox News Zac Petkansas and Micheal Caputo got into it big time
Some people are getting a little nervous.
“just as we retained other firms to assist in our research into Hillary Clinton”
Who ever they paid did not do their job. Their is a ton of info out there on Hillary. The Free Beacon either got took or swept the info under the rug.
Sorry, WFB, but that tiny little article isnt nearly big enough to cover your collective asses. You lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.
I read this as a misdirection. It doesn’t sound like what they did was related to the dossier.
“I read this as a misdirection. It doesnt sound like what they did was related to the dossier.”
After thinking about it I agree.
Yes. However, this article is direct from the source.
You DO know what “Related” means, right?
Yes. FOR the Record.
The sinister thing in all this is that all of them were willing to stand by and let an innocent man get railroaded. They are scum.
I did. Caputo was steaming. Lawsuits to follow. He told that twerp his side better get lawyers...They’re gonna need it.
After the Dems took over..about May 2016.
“Washington Free Beacon has retained third party firms to conduct research on many individuals and institutions of interest to us and our readers”
I wonder if they retained third party firms to conduct research on all of the republican primary candidates.
Nothing to worry about. WFB contracted with Fusion GPS in Nov 2015 and it went nowhere. This was well before the DNC contracted them and Steele was hired to dig up false facts.

They got at each other good, calling each other names. Poor Martha didn’t quite know what to do with them.
Holey Moley, when Zac Petkanas tried to spin the Steele Dossier as an investigation by the DEMS to PROVE Trump’s collusion with the Russians, , Caputo went nuclear on him, telling him to “lawyer up”.
Pre-interview Petkanas was twitching and his pupils looked so big I would hazard a guess he was stoned, unusually large pupil dilation under the bright studio lights.
If Caputo and Petkanas had been in the same studio, in the same room, there would have been a fist fight.
I’d say that right now the DNC hacks and Lefty apparatchiks are going completely NUTS.
