The Senate Intel Committee thought they were going to finally interview a member of the firm active in producing the fake news Trump Dossier but co-founder Glenn Simpson backed out.
Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS was to testify in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee next week and now he’s pulling back his commitment. So wait? Why won’t he testify? What does he have to hide? If Sen. Chuck Grassley subpoenas him, he’ll end up pleading the fifth like the rest of those in the Barack Obama administration have done.
Strange how any Democrats that are involved in anything regarding Russian don’t want to testify and neither do the people they hire to do their dirty work for them. In the dark, they are all about making things happen to hurt others but when they have a light that shines on their corruption, they lose that swagger and turn into muppets.
Some could say Simpson is partly responsible for what you are witnessing in the media today where Russia is the top story and fake news follows.

Simpson co-founded the political intelligence firm Fusion GPS in 2009. During the 2016 campaign, the firm hired former British spy Christopher Steele, who produced a now-infamous dossier alleging Russian intelligence’s influence over President Trump.
The Senate Judiciary Committee said yesterday that Simpson would testify next week. The chairman of the committee, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), sent a letter asking for information about the dossier to Fusion GPS in March, and in June threatened to subpoena Simpson if he did not comply with the request for voluntary testimony.
Grassley rejected claims from Simpson’s lawyer in June that responding to the committee’s request would violate Simpson’s First Amendment rights.
“Your attorney has failed to sufficiently explain your claims that responding to the Committee’s requests would infringe upon or violate your and/or Fusion’s First Amendment rights, attorney-client and attorney work product privileges, and confidentiality agreements,” Grassley wrote in a letter released in June.
“Based on the minimal and vague explanations your attorney has provided, the Committee cannot adequately assess your claims. Thus, we must presume that they are unfounded.”
Grassley’s main questions for Simpson involve who hired Fusion GPS to produce opposition research against Trump, and whether the firm shared the document with the FBI.
“When political opposition research becomes the basis for law enforcement or intelligence efforts, it raises substantial questions about the independence of law enforcement and intelligence from politics,” Grassley wrote in March.

Fusion GPS Founder Glenn Simpson Cancels His Testimony Before Congress
IMO, a subpoena for Mr. Simpson is in order.https://t.co/NVCuKIm1lg

I guess he didn’t want to be the next body found. Did someone threaten to cause him to commit suicide by shooting himself in the back of the head?
He was probably reviewing his testimony notes and was shocked to find his suicide note in the same pile.
Issue a subpoena then if a no show ban arrest warrant. I’m sick and tired of Congress letting people get away with being no shows, time for law and order.
Do you think Simpson will appear before the Senate Intel Committee? Will Grassley go after him to answer questions? Share your comments below.
