BUSTED: Leading CNN Reporters’ Connection To Fusion GPS Uncovered
As The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft previously reported, right-leaning news outlet, Washington Free Beacon, funded Fusion GPS’s opposition research on 2016 Republican presidential candidates, which included Donald Trump, but did not directly back the now discredited ‘Trump dossier.’
A new report by Chuck Ross and Peter Hasson of the Daily Caller reveals CNN has undisclosed ties to Fusion GPS through reporter Evan Perez and Glenn Simpson.
Fusion co-founder Glenn Simpson and CNN reporter Even Perez are associates and regularly co-author “news” reports together.
CNN has given favorable coverage to Fusion GPS – which is now linked to Hillary Clinton and the DNC.
Daily Caller reports:
Glenn Simpson, the Fusion co-founder most often associated with the dossier, is used to working on stories with Perez. As reporters at the Journal, Perez and Simpson regularly co-authored stories on national security.
Another Fusion founder, Tom Catan, worked as a reporter for the Journal at the same time as Perez and Simpson. The third Fusion co-founder, Peter Fritsch, worked above Perez and Simpson as the senior national security editor.

Last week, Fusion GPS requested a U.S. District judge to block investigators from accessing its bank records. Not so fast, says the House Intelligence Committee, who filed a motion demanding Fusion GPS obey the subpoena to reveals its past financial transactions. According to Kimberley A. Strassel of the Wall Street Journal, ‘the coming Russia bombshells,’ may come to light if a ‘judge orders Fusion GPS to give House investigators its bank records.’
As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Fusion GPS, the firm behind the ‘Trump Dossier,’ called on a judge to block House investigators from accessing its bank records. Is Fusion GPS attempting to hide who paid for the ‘Trump Dossier’?
Last Monday, GPS Fusion founders refused Rep. Nunes’ request to testify before the House Intelligence Committee. The founders cited constitutional privileges as their reason to refuse, claiming they cannot in good conscience appear before the panel.
