Fake Steele dossier funding by Clinton, DNC exposed, Rep. Devin Nunes a hero

Oct. 25, 2017, Fairfax, Va.–Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising House Select Committee on Intelligence U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) for subpoenaing Fusion GPS to reveal who funded the now-discredited Christopher Steele dossier, which the Washington Post reports was the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee:

“The nation should be grateful to Devin Nunes, who had the courage to continue pursuing the truth related to who was behind fake Steele dossier that contended Trump-Russia collusion. It was Nunes’ doggedness in pursuing the political funders of the opposition research effort that relied on misinformation that has compelled even the pro-Clinton Washington Post to report on the direct funding ties between Hillary Clinton, the DNC and the Steele dossier. It is particularly troubling that Fusion GPS, which produced the Steele dossier, has chosen to take the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination rather than honestly dealing the issues at hand. In light of the leaking of Fusion GPS funding by the Clinton campaign and the DNC to the Washington Post, it is very difficult to maintain that Fusion should not provide the House Intelligence Committee their full and complete funding records.

“Our nation has been subjected to over a year’s worth of baseless speculation about Russia collusion and the election. Chairman Nunes has finally broken through to get near the truth, and he cannot back down now.”
