Bildet: Ikke mange har fått en amerikansk lov oppkalt etter seg. Sergej Magnitskij ble igjen i Moskva for å take on det korrupte nettverket som plyndret selskapet han jobbet for, Hermitage Capital. Det kostet ham livet. Bill Browder var hans sjef og sørget for at Kongressen vedtok en lov som straffer folk som hans mordere. Men det forhindret ikke Fusion GPS fra å sverte Browder. 

Selskapet bak drittpakken om Trump, Fusion GPS, har tette bånd til CNN. CNN lar deres juridiske ekspert Evan Perez kommentere Fusion GPS selv om selskapet ble grunnlagt av hans tidligere kolleger i Wall Street Journal.

De er ikke bare vanlige eks-kolleger. Fusion GPS er ekspert på å ødelegge folks rykte. Trump er ikke den første. To kjente navn forklarte seg for Senatet i sommer: Bill Browder fra Heritage Capital og Tom Halvorssen, leder av Oslo Freedom Forum. Begge hadde opplevd drittpakker.

Thor Halvorssen, founder of the Human Rights Foundation, described Fusion GPS as “highly paid smear experts” in written testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee. He says that the firm went after him several years ago because he criticized a corrupt Venezuelan company Derwick Associates that counted Fusion as a client. 

Alek Boyd, a former associate of Halvorssen’s, says he was also targeted in a similar smear campaign because he drew attention to Derwick’s alleged financial misdeeds. He said he also faced false allegations of being a pedophile, sexual deviant and drug addict.

“Fusion is basically a pen-for-hire shop, whose owners are prepared to concoct completely spurious stories that are fed to media contacts developed over years of legitimate work in reputable outlets,” Boyd told TheDC.

Browder

Bill Browder, a renowned human rights activist and top Putin enemy, offered similar testimony before the committee.

Browder described how Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, the same attorney that met with Donald Trump Jr. last year, used Fusion GPS to conduct a smear campaign against him.

“Veselnitskaya, through Baker Hostetler, hired Glenn Simpson of the firm Fusion GPS to conduct a smear campaign against me and Sergei Magnitsky in advance of congressional hearings on the Global Magnitsky Act,” Browder stated in his written testimony.

“He contacted a number of major newspapers and other publications to spread false information that Sergei Magnitsky was not murdered, was not a whistle-blower, and was instead a criminal. They also spread false information that my presentations to lawmakers around the world were untrue,” Browder said.

Putins tentakler strekker seg langt. Da en russisk regissør laget film om Magnitskij-saken og hevdet at han ikke var uskyldig, men tvert om løy og manipulerte, trodde norske filmskapere på ham og mente at han hadde rett til å vise filmen på Dokumentarfestivalen i Grimstad.

Når CNN er buddy med Fusion GPS som lager drittpakke om Trump med innhold de har fått fra russerne, strekker Putins makt seg langt. Den omfatter de samme medier som har hamret Trump om Russia collusion i et år. Slikt kalles penetrering på spionspråket. Russerne har utført en av de mest vellykkede infiltrsjonsprosjekt i nyere tid. Det har fått hele det liberale USA til å tro at Trump samarbeidet med Moskva. Demokratene slukte agnet og det har gjort dem gale.

Men enkelte redaksjoner synes at det nå får være nok. En av dem er redaksjonen i Wall Street Journal:

At no point in Perez’s reporting did he disclose his close ties to the Fusion GPS operatives.

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board sounded the alarm about its former reporters in a remarkable editorial earlier this month, accusing Beltway media of being complicit in a coverup with Fusion. “Americans don’t need a Justice Department coverup abetted by Glenn Simpson’s media buddies,” the editors wrote in a scathing takedown of the firm.

De samme mediene som begynte å snakke om fake news er de samme som har blitt talerør for interesser som ønsker å manipulere opinionen.

.

Finally, as you would expect from a Democrat-aligned misinformation firm,” Fusion GPS has a tight relationship with the American media.

We now know that the firm instructed its chief investigator, former British spy Christopher Steele, to brief our media on some of the allegations in the dossier. The Daily Caller reports that “rumors of the dossier were floating around in Washington, D.C. political and journalist circles for months prior to BuzzFeed’s decision to publish it on Jan. 10,” and that the outlets briefed included:

The New York Times, The Washington Post, Yahoo! News, The New Yorker and CNN.

Steele met once more — and again at Fusion GPS’s instruction — with The Times, The Post, and Yahoo! News. Fusion GPS took part in all of those meetings, Steele’s lawyers say.

“In each of those cases the briefing was conducted verbally in person,” the document reads.

In October, Fusion GPS instructed Steele to brief a journalist from Mother Jones. The interview, which was conducted through Skype, was likely with reporter David Corn.

That briefing was held at the end of September, or six weeks prior to the election.

Det var russerne som var kilder for Steele-rapporten, det kan ikke sies tydelig nok:

As the Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway (her superb piece is where the research above came from) so aptly puts it, “We’re in the midst of media frenzy over Russian disinformation campaigns, particularly as they apply to the 2016 election. It is worth noting that the sources of the “Russia-Trump dossier” were senior Russian officials.”

Til tross for et enormt nedlagt arbeid har ingen medier klart å påvise at noe av det som står i Steele-rapporten er riktig.

Det som derimot er riktig er at :

What you clearly have here is the Clinton campaign openly COLLUDING with a foreign country, with the Russians, to fabricate scurrilous lies about Trump, which were then fed to a willing media as a means to affect their news coverage, and by extension, sway the election.

Demokratene kommer til å kjempe med nebb og klør mot at oppmerksomheten vendes mot dem, men de ligger allerede tynt an.

Det allerede tegn til at demokrater distanserer seg fra Hillary. Tidligere stabsjef og CIA-sjef Leon Panetta sa de siste avsløringene om finansieringen av Steele-rapporten må granskes.
