Judge Orders Fusion GPS to Answer Questions About Its Dossier Work in Defamation Lawsuit Against Buzzfeed

Sweeeet.

What I want to know is: What reporters are on Fusion GPS' payroll?

A Russian accused in Fusion GPS' "dossier" of being a RUSSIAN SPY is suing Buzzfeed for defamation, as they published the unvetted piece of shit.

He's served Fusion GPS with interrogatories about how they "crafted" this piece of shit.

The judge has ordered: Yes, you must answer these questions.

Ungaro [the judge in the case] ruled that attorneys for the executive, Aleksej Gubarev, can ask Fusion GPS representatives in a deposition about the firmís dossier clients, its efforts to verify the dossier, its decision to hire dossier author Christopher Steele and its interactions with government officials and media outlets, including BuzzFeed.

...

Ungaro largely rejected Fusion's First Amendment objection, saying the firm's business relationships with its clients "are not protected from disclosure by the First Amendment even though the opposition research it conducts on behalf of clients may be political in nature."

"This ruling gave us everything that we had hoped for," Evan Fray-Witzer, a lawyer for Gubarev, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

"After a year of trying everything they could think of to avoid being deposed, Fusion is finally going to have to sit down and answer our questions," he added.

I'll be right back, when I finish masturbating, which will be never.

Who got that access - HPSCI? Can't remember.


Funny - dynamite info like that simply doesn't leak ...... because the racist-authoritarians don't have it, or it would harm "their" side, and GOP types don't do that sort of leaking.


Meanwhile, the president of the f***ing United States has his first few phone conversations with world leaders leaked (and we still have no heads rolling in those cases, AFAIK).


Anyway - wouldn't the bank records have it all?

Well, they won't praise it as the second coming of Jesus-as many don't believe that Jesus was anything the 1st century version of an American leftist and certainly don't believe he came back (after dying) or is coming back. I don't know what their equivalent would be. A more inclusive version of Lenin coming back again?.

91 Interesting factoid: Rosie's impeachment resolution includes statement that DOJ "whistleblowers" provided documents to Congress showing DOJ/FBI knowingly withheld info from Congress that fell under the oversight function.


Which probably means the Hill has a menu of stuff that exists, and is relevant, and is being hidden.

100 The rule of law is dead. It's only made up and applied to certain people according to polical beliefs and white Christian men.

Actually had a ruling that just made up a law and rule citing no law or case law. Just made it up. I asked my lawyer to point to.the law and case law and he couldn't. He was pissed that I dare hold the other party to the actual laws, caeelaws, and rules of the court as in held to them.

Yep, local courts just make shit up if you beat the system, just as I and my team did. So they just made shit up.

Civility and our legal system is dead. Those who advocate that it is not broken are lying to you and only seek to profit from contracts when contracts are no longer valid.

No, you're not. You get sanctioned for refusing to answer questions. Reason is that in a civil court your liberty isn't at risk and you're not facing any criminal charge. The question is strictly a matter of financial liability (the plaintiff is claiming that the defendant owes him money) and you aren't allowed to withhold any information on that topic.

Sometimes things happen and the significance isn't realized for weeks or months. Things like Lisa Page cooperating with Congress and disputing much of the testimony of Peter Strzok.

It didn't get a lot of play yesterday cause everyone was focused on impeachment but if Page is cooperating she is going to incriminate a lot more than just Strzok. She knows everything.

279 >>Pretty sure the Russian government is one of Fusion GPS's clients. Which is another reason why their participation in the "Russian meddling" story is so absurd.

Just ask Bill Browder. He was the very first witness to testify before the Senate Intel Committee in this investigation over a year ago and he laid it all out.

293 Everything Hillary touches goes wrong for her.

If "go wrong for her" means that she will face justice and accountability in this life, then I hope it continues to "go wrong for her", because IMO she sure as heck needs something that will bring her to a conversion experience, and I think only the grace of God through her hitting rock bottom will do that.

298 Ill add an addendum: that's why the "immunity" given to the bad guys was phony; once you've been given immunity you have to testify.

And a FBI agent can't give out immunity, only a Federal prosecutor can. Notice we never hear who the prosecutor is behind Mueller.

312 Just because Fusion can offer to settle doesn't mean the oligarch has to agree. Money cannot repair a damaged reputation but a statement of Correction and facts can.

They cannot plead the fifth if, as Jack straw has claimed that Congress has those documents. If, in this is a big if this was indeed an oversight by the conspirators then this is huge.

It's going to be very hard for them to lie about why they decided to smear this individual. Either proving or disproving their case fax will be revealed and that's bad for the left and f****** wonderful for the rest of us
