Another Husband-Wife Team Linked To Fusion GPS Found In Russia Collusion Probe

Investigators on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence appear to have uncovered a second husband-wife team who provided a conduit for opposition research by Fusion GPS into the highest levels of former President Barack Obama’s White House.
Shailagh Murray (shown above), a former Obama policy adviser who previously served as deputy chief of staff and communications director for then-Vice President Joe Biden, is married to Neil King Jr. — who works for the shadowy Washington, D.C.-based opposition research firm that hired former British spy Christopher Steele, according to Fox News.
Steele compiled a dossier during the 2016 presidential election of largely unverified allegations about President Donald Trump’s connections with Russian business and government interests.
Former FBI Director James Comey told Congress the Steele dossier consisted of “salacious and unverified” allegations.
The dossier’s questionable credibility did not, however, prevent bureau officials from relying almost exclusively on it to support their application for approval from a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to spy on a volunteer foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign.
