Planned Parenthood’s Research Firm May Have Worked With Russians To 'Undermine U.S.'

According to an April 28th letter from the Senate Judiciary Committee to FBI Director James Comey, there's a lot of questions regarding liberal research firm Fusion GPS. The letter indicates that the Justice Department is investigating a formal complaint that Fusion GPS has been illegally working with Russian principles to undermine U.S. sanctions against Russia:

Also, more information has since come to the Committee’s attention about the company overseeing the creation of the dossier, Fusion GPS. Namely, Fusion GPS is the subject of a complaint to the Justice Department, which alleges that the company violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act by working on behalf of Russian principals to undermine U.S. sanctions against Russians. That unregistered work was reportedly conducted with a former Russian intelligence operative, Mr. Rinat Akhmetshin, and appears to have been occurring simultaneous to Fusion GPS’s work overseeing the creation of the dossier. I wrote to the Justice Department about this issue on March 31, copying you, and I have attached that letter here for your reference. The Justice Department has yet to respond.

Founded in 2009, Fusion GPS is a Democrat research firm, that conducts opposition research on behalf of liberals causes and candidates. This is the same firm that employed the author of the dossier alleging collusion between associates of Donald Trump and the Russian government. This is the same opposition research firm that was hired by Planned Parenthood to discredit the Center for Medical Progress’ sting videos, revealing that Planned Parenthood representatives selling aborted baby tissue samples. They were also hired to investigate Trump’s sexual history in 2015 and conduct anti-Romney opposition research for the Democrats in 2012.

While Fusion GPS’s relationship with Russia has been a subject of investigation for the past few years, the Senate Judiciary Committee’s letter to the Justice Department indicates that this matter is still under ongoing investigation.
