    Trump dossier figure questioned behind closed doors on Capitol Hill

    Trump dossier figure questioned behind closed doors on Capitol Hill

    By Brooke Singman Published August 22, 2017 Fox News

    Glenn Simpson

    The head of the firm behind the infamous anti-Trump dossier was interviewed Tuesday behind closed doors on Capitol Hill, a congressional aide confirmed to Fox News.

    Glenn Simpson
    , the co-founder of investigative firm Fusion GPS, met with staff of the Senate Judiciary Committee as part of the committee’s investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential election.


    A committee spokesperson did not give Fox News any further information on the meeting with Simpson and Judiciary staff.


    Simpson's company was behind the dossier that was compiled during last year's campaign and which contained crude allegations against now-President Trump. A source told Fox News that Fusion GPS has given the Senate committee over 40,000 documents.


    Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and committee Ranking Member Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., originally had issued a subpoena for Simpson’s testimony at a public hearing before the committee last month. But they withdrew it after Simpson reached arrangements to interview with the committee in private.

    The committee’s hearing in July pertained to oversight of the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA). At the public session, CEO and founder of Hermitage Capital Bill Browder testified that Fusion GPS and Simpson also worked “on behalf of the Russian government” in an effort to fight U.S. sanctions that had enraged Moscow’s elite.


    Browder told lawmakers last month that Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who met with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower in June 2016, was responsible for hiring Simpson to “conduct a smear campaign against me and Sergei Magnitsky in advance of a congressional hearing on the Global Magnitsky Act.” The Magnitsky Act is a U.S. law that brings sanctions against Russian oligarchs suspected of money laundering.

    After the hearing, Fusion GPS responded to Browder’s allegations, and said that they had “complied with the law” and were “not required to register under FARA,” and “did not spread false information about William Browder or Sergei Magnitsky.”


    “What is clear is that the president and his allies are desperately trying to smear Fusion GPS because it investigated Donald Trump’s ties to Russia,” Fusion GPS said in a statement to Fox News after the hearing last month. “They have pulled out all the stops, including this false allegation about FARA.”

    In other words, they don't want the truth to get out -

    I think the corruption in our government is so pervasive and so vile, it might destroy the nation if it all came out.

    The world doesn't like us much anyway, they don't respect us. Think what would happen, if all the lawbreaking done by the last three administrations came out all at once. Think about it.

    Then think about how many people would be left in Washington if all the miscreants were punished and put out of office - it would look like a ghost town.

    That may be what Pres. Trump is faced with - how to clean it up - without destroying the government entirely.
