Fusion GPS Founder Will Plead The Fifth To Avoid Testifying To Congress

One of the Clinton Creature’s hired guns, a big one, has decided not to answer questions. I wonder how they feel knowing all their’best laid plans’ have all turned against them?

Fusion GPS Founder Will Plead The Fifth To Avoid Testifying To Congress


According to The Hill, Simpson’s attorney, Joshua Levy, told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte that Simpson will not appear for a deposition because the congressional investigation “is not designed to discover the truth.”


In addition to investigating Trump and his associates, Fusion GPS has helped plant anti-Trump news stories with numerous news outlets. Simpson helped arrange meetings between Steele and journalists from The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, and Yahoo! News


Ohr testified on Aug. 28 that he met Simpson twice in 2016, before and after the election. The first meeting took place in August 2016 after Simpson emailed Ohr. Ohr’s notes show that he took notes related to the Trump investigation during his encounter with Simpson

But Simpson testified that he met Ohr only after the election, and at Ohr’s request. And though Simpson acknowledged meeting Ohr, he did not tell congressional investigators that Ohr’s wife, Nellie, worked for Fusion GPS while the firm was investigating Trump.




“I think you said earlier today sometime this morning that you met with Glenn Simpson twice in person,” Jordan said, according to a transcript of the interview read out to TheDCNF.
“But you met in person in 2016, is that right?” Jordan pressed.

“That is my recollection,” Ohr said.

“Once in August and once in December?” Jordan asked.

“Yes,” said Ohr.


Did the FBI ever reach out to you or Fusion GPS in relation to the matters that Mr. Steele informed them upon?” investigators with the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence asked Simpson during a Nov. 14, 2017, interview.

“No,” said Simpson.


Somebody’s telling whoppers and IMO it isn’t Bruce Ohr.
