The opposition research firm behind the Trump dossier crafted a memo last year that was presented to members of the Trump campaign during the infamous Trump Tower meeting as well as to a top Kremlin official.
The development adds yet another twist to a labyrinthian saga involving Fusion GPS, which commissioned the dossier as a contractor for the Clinton campaign and DNC.
At the same time that Fusion was working on the dossier, it was conducting opposition research for a Russian businessman who was fighting against the Magnitsky Act, a 2012 sanctions law opposed by the Kremlin.
As part of that work, according to Reuters, Fusion produced a four-page memo of opposition research on Bill Browder, a London-based financier who helped push through the Magnitsky Act.
The memo was presented at one point last year to Russia’s prosecutor general, Yuri Chaika, The New York Times recently reported. Fusion’s fingerprints on the memo were not included in the Times report.
