Fusion GPS to provide bank records to House Intelligence Committee

Fox News:
The House Intelligence Committee said Saturday it has struck a deal to gain access to bank records from Fusion GPS, the firm behind the salacious anti-Trump dossier.

The company had recently attempted to block the committee’s subpoena for its banking records.

“The parties have reached an agreement related to the House Intelligence Committee's subpoena for Fusion GPS's bank records that will secure the Committee's access to the records necessary for its investigation,” the intelligence committee said in a statement released Saturday.

Lawmakers for months have been trying to investigate the origin of the salacious anti-Trump dossier, which claimed the Russian government had compromising material on President Trump. It was provided to journalists and the FBI last year, when Trump was still a Republican candidate.

Over the last week, it was revealed that Fusion GPS was retained last year by Marc E. Elias, an attorney representing the DNC and the Clinton campaign. The firm then hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to write the dossier.

On Friday evening, it was revealed that the opposition research project was initially backed by the conservative Washington Free Beacon website.
Will they get to see all the company's bank records are just the ones that relate to the dirty dossier?  This is an important question since the firm also had ties to the Russian operation attempting to overturn a law passed by Congress in response to the death of a dissident.   This came up in a meeting with Trump's son and others when they were told the meeting would be about dirt on Hillary Clinton.  Another person with ties to Fusion GPS was also at that meeting.

Were the Democrat's lawyer and the Washington Free Beacon the only ones tied to the opposition research efforts of Fusion?  Why were both trying to hide their ties to the dirty dossier?  Did the firm pay the Russians who provided the information to the former British Spy they hired to compile the information in the dossier?
