Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

The names of the journalists are redacted in the filing.

It is not clear from the requests whether Fusion GPS paid active journalists for their work. The firm is known to employ a stable of former reporters. Simpson and his two founding partners, Peter Fritsch and Thomas Catan, worked together at The Wall Street Journal.

The unsealed filings show that Fusion argued against releasing records related to payments to journalists.

In a Nov. 3 declaration, Fritsch argued that “transactions between Fusion GPS and certain journalists…are not pertinent to work related to Russia or Donald Trump.”

And in a Nov. 2 email to the Intel committee’s legal team, Levy argued that “records related to payments to the journalists and ‘individuals’ are protected by the First Amendment and confidentiality, and they are not pertinent.”

Bring it all out into the open, please!

 :popcorn:   Oh my...!  Journalistic integrity is on-the-line!   First Amendment protects bribery payments to the journalists and individuals.
And they wonder WHY President Trump (Libs hate that), calls them FAKE NEWS...   meh, looks like President Trump (Libs hate that) was right, again (libs hate that too!)
