Washington Post May Have Omitted Past Investigations by Fusion GPS Firm

The Washington Post recently wrote a review [1] of Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that was behind the so-called “Trump dossier.”

The dossier was compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele and has since become the center of a congressional investigation due to its investigative tactics.

In their review, the Post mentioned the dossier in the last half, while mentioning other previous cases that Fusion GPS undertook, such as a land deal in Beverly Hills, California and when Theranos, a medical device company, allegedly intimidated journalists at the Wall Street Journal.

As The Federalist pointed out [2], the Post’s review of Fusion GPS did not mention how the firm worked with foreign government supporters to criticize its vocal opponents. One example was Venezuela, which claimed that a human rights and anti-government activist was a racist and pedophile, and another was an alleged smear campaign surrounding an American law that could impose sanctions on Russian officials.
