George Soros funded Fusion GPS by making a grant to a Fusion GPS contractor while the Glenn Simpson-founded opposition research firm was engaged in the tactics responsible for the discredited Christopher Steele dossier against President Donald Trump.
Deripaska wrote in a March 2018 op-ed in the Daily Caller about “unholy alliances” between Fusion GPS and the Justice Department. Deripaska added that an associate of Fusion GPS had told Waldman in March 2017 that the organization was partly funded by liberal billionaire George Soros, another bogeyman for Trump supporters and Russia. Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson declined to comment for this article. Soros’s spokesman, Michael Vachon, told me that Soros hadn’t funded Fusion GPS directly but had made a grant to the Democracy Integrity Project, which used Fusion GPS as a contractor.

A Russian billionaire writes that George Soros, a major financier of liberal causes, is funding Fusion GPS, the firm that orchestrated the Christopher Steele dossier.
If true, it is possible that Fusion GPS’s ongoing anti-Trump investigations have not only been funded by the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton campaign, but also by currency trader Soros. He recently pledged $18 billion to a cast of liberal groups and causes.
Fox News acquired secret text messages between Sen. Mark Warner, Virginia Democrat and Senate Select Committee on Intelligence vice chairman, and Washington attorney Adam Waldman. Mr. Waldman represents Mr. Deripaska.
Mr. Warner used Mr. Waldman as a go-between to reach Mr. Steele, a former British spy to whom the committee wants to speak. The back-and-forth from Warner to Waldman to Steele did not appear to be productive.

ACCOUNTABILITY: President Trump Fires Deep State Snitch Who Triggered Impeachment Hysteria
Trump made the announcement to Congress on Friday.
President Donald Trump is taking out the trash now that the impeachment witch hunt against him has subsided, and he has fired a deep state snitch instrumental in getting the impeachment proceedings off the ground.
Trump has fired Michael Atkinson, a Department of Justice attorney who served as the Intelligence Community Inspector General, after Atkinson notified Congress last year about the “whistleblower” complaint filed by CIA operative Eric Ciaramella. This prompted months of hysteria that ultimately found no evidence of Trump committing any wrongdoing.
“As is the case with regard to other positions where I, as President, have the power of appointment … it is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as inspectors general,” Trump wrote in his letter to Congress. “That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General.”
Leading Democrats are not happy about Trump cleaning house and removing deep state operatives from power.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is demanding that the President to “immediately cease his attacks on those who sacrifice to keep America safe, particularly during this time of national emergency.”
House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that the firing is “another blatant attempt by the President to gut the independence of the Intelligence Community and retaliate against those who dare to expose presidential wrongdoing.”
“This retribution against a distinguished public servant for doing his job and informing Congress of an urgent and credible whistleblower complaint is a direct affront to the entire inspector general system,” Schiff said in a statement.
“In the midst of a national emergency, it is unconscionable that the President is once again attempting to undermine the integrity of the intelligence community by firing yet another an intelligence official simply for doing his job,” said Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the top ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
“When you speak truth to power, you should be a hero. But in this administration, when you speak truth to power, all too often, you get fired,” Schumer said during an appearance on CNN.
Republican lawmakers are generally pleased with the President’s decision to remove Atkinson.
“Like any political appointee, the Inspector General serves at the behest of the Executive. However, in order to be effective, the IG must be allowed to conduct his or her work independent of internal or external pressure,” said Sen. Richard Burr (R-KY), who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee.
“It is my hope the next nominee for the role of ICIG will uphold the same important standards laid out by Congress when we created this role,” he added.
“The intelligence community inspector general is particularly essential to ensuring the nation’s secrets are well protected and powerful, highly invasive surveillance authorities are not abused. Going forward the ICIG must step up its focus on investigating those abuses and preventing leaks of classified information,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said.
Trump is finally starting to drain the swamp by removing some of these career bureaucrats from position of authority in Washington D.C.
