Company behind anti-Trump intel dossier asks court to block Congress from reviewing records

The company behind the anti-Trump intelligence dossier that rocked last year’s U.S. election is mounting a legal challenge to block the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence from getting access to its banking records.

Committee Chairman Devin Nunes issued a subpoena seeking bank records of Fusion GPS on Oct. 4 and the company fired back Friday, filing a complaint in federal court to block the bank from turning over the records.

The committee subpoenaed Fusion’s banking records in an effort to determine who financed former British spy Christopher Steele’s work to write the dossier during the summer and fall of 2016, a source with knowledge of the situation told The Washington Times.

The subpoena, a copy of which is included among the documents filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, requests documents dating back to August 2015 from the company’s bank — including records of current account balances and past transaction activity.

    Who will be more affected by this reveal; the company that provided the false reports to the media, or the media who ran with it? Finding out who paid for these false reports might reveal who is behind the false accusations. Finding out that, say, the Clinton Campaign paid for these would show them in a very bad light, but it might be fun to see how she could blame the Trump Campaign or Fox News for it.
