Fake News for Hire: CNN’s Role in the Russia Dossier Scandal

As the Russia dossier scandal continues to reveal the ties between Hillary’s campaign, the DNC, the FBI and Russian sources, one element in the whole story that’s not being reported is CNN.

A few weeks back the Project Veritas released damning videos showing CNN’s admission that the so-called Russia-collusion story was a ‘nothing burger’ but that the network was out to get Trump anyway.

Now, details have come to light that might explain it all.

The reporter who has taken the lead on the story for CNN is Evan Perez.

And just a little investigation has revealed that Perez is best pals with the founders of Fusion GPS, the firm paid by Hillary to create the Russia dossier on Trump.

So, the Democrats hire a firm to build a hit story on Trump, using FBI sourcing material, and that material is given to CNN in order to drive the media narrative of a ‘stolen election’.

Which is the original storyline hatched by Hillary advisor John Podesta, also caught up in the Uranium One scandal.

It’s a twisted web of lies, corruption, and deceit.

Here’s more from Daily Caller…

CNN’s reporting on the Trump-Russia dossier has left out at least one crucial fact: the close ties between the network and the opposition research firm at the center of the dossier controversy.

CNN’s reporting on the dossier, led by justice correspondent Evan Perez, has been favorable to the firm, Fusion GPS, and hyped the dossier’s credibility. Left out of Perez’s reporting, which has relied largely on unnamed sources, is his personal closeness to Fusion GPS’ operatives. Fusion has repeatedly been described in Senate testimonies as a smear-for-hire operation that manufactures misleading or false media narratives for its clients.

Glenn Simpson, the Fusion co-founder most often associated with the dossier, is used to working on stories with Perez. As reporters at the Journal, Perez and Simpson regularly co-authored stories on national security.

Another Fusion founder, Tom Catan, worked as a reporter for the Journal at the same time as Perez and Simpson. The third Fusion co-founder, Peter Fritsch, worked above Perez and Simpson as the senior national security editor.

Simpson and Fritsch left the WSJ in 2011 to launch Fusion. Perez jumped from the paper to CNN in 2013. Another longtime Journal reporter, Neil King, left the paper to join Fusion in December 2016.

Photos posted to Facebook underscore the personal closeness between Perez and the Fusion GPS operatives. One photo posted by Perez shows King, who left the Journal for Fusion in December 2016, and another man posing for a picture at The Bullpen, an outdoor bar right outside of the Washington Nationals’ stadium.
