Fusion GPS founder testified he did not verify Russian dossier before discussing it with the media

November 15, 2017

  A co-founder of Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson, testified about the Russian dossier in front of the House Intelligence Committee yesterday, and while he refused to answer questions related to his ties to the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign, he did admit that he did not verify the dossier before he shared some details of it with the media.

  Here is more:

The co-founder of the firm behind the anti-Trump ‘dossier’ told House investigators Tuesday that he personally discussed with members of the media allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, though he did not speak to the sources behind the claims, a source told Fox News.

According to a source familiar with the matter, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson refused to answer key questions during his seven-hour, closed-door appearance before the House Intelligence Committee. The source said he would not answer questions on his relationship with specific journalists or ties to the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign, which financed the anti-Trump research via the law firm Perkins Coie.

But the source said Simpson acknowledged he did not personally look into certain aspects of the dossier — which was authored by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and contained salacious allegations about the Trump team’s ties to Russia.

  Most of the details contained in the dossier were almost immediately discredited so it comes as no surprise Glenn Simpson did not verify the contents, but this does show us that he did know the contents were not verified and decided to leak some of the contents to the media because it was just too juicy to ignore and he had a Presidential candidate to take down. The end justifies the means…

    May we deduce then that the DNC was more or less behind the dossier and the Clinton’s and their campaign ran the DNC so by extension it’s the Hillary dossier but since she’s a “D” she cannot be indicted prosecuted fined or jailed for her crimes because as a “D” she is above the law. Additionally neither Trump, Sessions nor congress is willing to mess with the Clinton Crime Family mafia.

      I think we can make that conclusion. And I think you are also right about Sessions being afraid of the Clinton’s. A cornered animal is most dangerous…
