OPINION AND EDITORIAL
Attorney Steven S. Biss, esq. of Charlottesville, Virginia is a busy man. He represents a number of clients that orbit the so-called conspiracy movement on the Internet. Such as Robert David Steele, David Seaman, Timothy Holmseth, Trevor FitzGibbon, Ed Butowsky and Rep. Devin Nunes, Congressman from Fresno. California.
One of the adventures of Mr. Biss has been to represent Cong. Nunes in a civil racketeering lawsuit against Fusion GPS, LLC — supposedly the “opposition research” firm that had something to do with the “pee pee dossier” related to the Russian collusion story of 2016. The “GPS” initialism is derived from “Global research, Political analysis, Strategic insight”.
From April 2016 through October 2016, the law firm Perkins Coie, on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, retained Fusion GPS to continue opposition research on Trump. In June 2016, Fusion GPS retained Christopher Steele, a private British corporate intelligence investigator and former MI-6 agent, to research any Russian connections to Trump. Steele produced a 35-page series of uncorroborated memos from June to December 2016, which became the document known as the Donald Trump–Russia dossier. Fusion GPS provided Marc Elias, the lead election lawyer for Perkins Coie, with the resulting dossier and other research documents.
