After fighting a subpoena from Congress for months, the bank for Fusion GPS has handed over financial records Friday, a court filing revealed.

A lawyer for the House of Representatives announced that TD Bank had produced all “remaining responsive documents” to the House Intelligence Committee.

What is Fusion GPS?

The company was hired by the Washington Free Beacon during the primaries to dig up opposition research on Donald Trump, a candidate at the time, and other presidential hopefuls.

The dossier is alleged by many of Trump’s allies to have been created purely for the sake of providing the Obama administration a pretense for illegally surveilling Trump and his associates before the election.
