Fusion GPS bills itself as a corporate research firm, but in many ways it operates with the secrecy of a spy agency. No sign marks its headquarters above a coffee shop in Northwest Washington. Its website consists of two sentences and an email address. Its client list is closely held. The small firm has been under intense public scrutiny for producing the 35-page document known as the Trump dossier.
"‘Journalism For Rent’: Inside the Secretive Firm Behind the Trump Dossier" is from the December 11, 2017 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Jack Gillum and Shawn Boburg and narrated by Sam Scholl.
