Former Slate journalist Franklin Foer, who currently works at The Atlantic, sent a draft copy of one of his propaganda pieces to Fusion GPS for editing, according to leaked emails highlighted by Special Counsel John Durham.
grave, grave journalistic no-no. But for a propagandist participating in a hoax, probably standard operating procedure. And it's not the only time he's been caught doing it with Fusion on a Russia collusion hoax story.— Mollie (@MZHemingway) April 26, 2022
Here are e-mails between Franklin Foer and Fusion GPS, in which they discuss going after Carter Page in May 2016.

As Durham makes clear, no lawyers are copied in these e-mails and this doesn’t have anything to do with legal advice. And even if there were some type of privilege or work product, it was waived when Fusion GPS distributed the info to the press.
How many times have we seen this before? It reminds me of when Politico's Glenn Thrush (now with the New York Times) got exposed by Wikileaks for sending his articles to the Clinton campaign for editing.
Foer is now writing propaganda pieces for The Atlantic hailing the Zelensky regime as champions of "liberalism."
