Bill Browder, a investment manager that has advocated for human rights in Russia, told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday that Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm infamous for the discredited Trump-Russia dossier, had been working for the Russian government.

“In spring and summer of 2016, [Fusion GPS] were recieving money indirectly from a senior Russian government official,” Browder said.

“So these were the people that were trying to undermine Donald Trump by showing he had nefarious ties to Russia?” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) asked.

Browder said that Russia was paying Fusion GPS specifically to discredit the Magnitsky Act, which placed sanctions on senior Russian officials, but Graham pointed out that at the same time as the Russian payments, Fusion GPS hired an investigator to create the dossier at the same exact time.
