“Edward Baumgartner co-founded UK-based intelligence consultancy Edward Austin. Baumgartner was hired by Fusion GPS to work with Natalia Veselnitskaya on the Prevezon asset forfeiture case and to work with Christopher Steele on the Steele dossier.
(…) According to Steele’s testimony in the UK he “used his old contacts and farmed out other research to native Russian speakers who made phone calls on his behalf“.
