Charles Grassley accuses Fusion GPS founder of lying to the Congress

May 30, 2018

  Last August Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee and now at least one part of his testimony is coming under fire by Charles Grassley.

  In question is Glenn Simpson’s claim that he did no work on the ‘Trump matter” after the election:

During the hearing, Simpson was asked, “So you didn’t do any work on the Trump matter after the election date; that was the end of your work?”

“I had no client after the election,” Simpson replied.

  However his testimony was contradicted by Daniel Jones, who claimed his research group employed Fusion GPS after the election to continue working on the “Trump matter.”

Daniel Jones, who runs a consulting firm called Penn Quarter Group, told the FBI up to 10 “wealthy donors from California and New York” funneled $50 million into opposition research projects

“Mr. Jones stated that he was leading a research and investigatory advisory organization called the Penn Quarter Group, which ‘had secured the services Steele, his associate [redacted], and Fusion GPS to continue exposing Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election,’” Grassley wrote to his Senate Judiciary Committee colleague Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE).

Here is what Charles Grassley had to say:

“As we now know, that was extremely misleading, if not an outright lie,” the Republican wrote to his fellow Judiciary Committee member, Delaware Sen. Chris Coons.

“Contrary to Mr. Simpson’s denial in the staff interview, according to the FBI and others, Fusion actually did continue Trump dossier work for a new client after the election,” Grassley said.

  I only have two questions: First; why did it take almost a year for this to come out? That seems a little excessive. And second; what are we going to do about it? Charles Grassley reminded Glenn Simpson that this was criminal so once again we are left looking at Jeff Sessions and waiting for him to take action.

    Without the slightest intent of sarcasm, what does this matter?

      Steve I think you need to check out this article. It gives some background on who this Jones character is.

      The problem with many of stories in this Russiagate/Spygate drama is there is no attempt to link events together. Apparently Grassley will ask for information and it will take months to get any information. I don’t see a date as to when Grassely learned of the conflict but the above link is from Feb. 2018.

    They sure don’t like to just answer “Yes” or “No” … but demand it of the underling!
    GO Grassley!
    [OT. I stopped in the Care & Share this morning and the (propaganda) ‘news’ was on talking about oBoma and showing his lying mug … the BIG push to re-insert him (the puppet) back in ‘a leadership position’ for the vile deep state inbreds puppeteers. That might help answer your questions about “time delay” and “purpose”. They’re ‘preparing (like drugging up) people’s minds (opiate of the NWO social religion) to ‘see this as ‘what will be’. “Just (make) Believe” … all is well. There was a black guy there (just stating) who when he hear ‘0’s hame mentioned’ was drawn to the TV to ‘hear’ and ‘see’. When I ‘saw and heard’ I turned and ignored. “Mind manipulation” of the masses working in the digital age for their ruin.

      Just like lambs to the slaughter!
      Something I noticed on America’s Got Talent’s premier last night was that every time they showed the golden buzzer it was in a gold star but the star was displayed on television upside down making a pentagram.

        ha, good catch. God’s has made & given each person ‘Talents’ & ‘ability to develop skills’. Its up to the each of us to decide how to use or not use them for the Glory of God or not ~ rather for vanity, building the kingdom of the antichrist, which will all go for not and ruin.
        Like on school buses – makes it obvious who owns and runs the schools.
