    Fusion GPS is ramping up its efforts to avoid giving depositions in a dossier-related lawsuit being heard in federal court.

    On Monday, lawyers for the opposition research firm submitted a request to federal court in Washington, D.C. seeking the recusal of Judge Trevor McFadden.

    McFadden, the Fusion lawyers note, served on the Trump presidential transition team and also worked at the Justice Department last year, when Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley referred Fusion for potential violations of foreign lobbying laws.

    The lawyers argue that McFadden’s prior work on the Trump transition “raises issues as to whether in this case the Court’s ‘impartiality might reasonably be questioned.'”

    Fusion GPS is not directly involved in the lawsuit, in which Russian businessman Aleksej Gubarev is suing BuzzFeed News in federal court in Florida for publishing the dossier.

    I'm not sure McFadden's work on the transition team is necessarily relevant to Fusion GPS' oppo research, which was done well before the election. Was Fusion GPS even known as the oppo research player back during the transition?
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    Note to "Warpy" and "shockey80": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

    Hmm... McFadden is biased because he worked on Trump's transition team but two adulterous FBI agents who shared Trump hate messages are completely free of prejudice when investigating Trump. Sound like perfectly good reasoning if you're a lib or an idiot.
    Liberals! The real fascists.
