See Who’s Using the Services of Fusion GPS Now

 

A liberal watchdog group hellbent to investigate the Trump administration and its most reliable allies in Congress hired Fusion GPS to gather opposition research last year.

The Campaign for Accountability paid the firm behind the infamous Trump dossier nearly $140,000.

The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross reports:
 

The payment, by Campaign for Accountability (CfA), was for research on an unknown project.

CfA was formed in 2015 by several former employees of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), another liberal watchdog group. The group describes itself as a “nonpartisan, nonprofit watchdog organization that uses research, litigation, and aggressive communications to expose misconduct and malfeasance in public life.”

CfA’s $138,684 payment to Fusion GPS was for work as an independent contractor, according to CfA’s Form 990 filing. The document does not reveal the date of payment, and CfA’s donors are not disclosed.

CfA filed numerous ethics complaints and lawsuits last year, while publishing reports criticizing Google and BlackRock, the largest investment firm in the U.S. CfA has two offshoot groups dedicated to researching the two companies: the Google Transparency Project and the BlackRock Transparency Project.
