STONEWALL: Fusion GPS Founder Won't Name Clients Behind 'Trump Dossier'

posted by admin - 4.20.17

The co-founder of Fusion GPS, the shady opposition research firm behind the debunked ‘Trump Dossier,’ refused to reveal the identity of the clients that commissioned the report; withholding their names during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Glenn Simpson, who co-founded the group, told Congressional leaders the identities of the individuals or organizations behind the infamous dossier would remain confidential during the ten-hour long hearing.

“Mr. Simpson told Congress the truth and cleared the record on many matters of interest to congressional investigators. He also kept the identities of Fusion GPS’ clients confidential,” Simpson’s attorney told The Daily Caller.

Lawmakers were eager to speak with Simpson over the 35-page document, most of which served as the pretense for accusations the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential election.

The dossier, compiled by former MI6 operative Christopher Steele, is at the center of the special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into Russian meddling. While Simpson refuses to identify the individuals or groups that commissioned the work, ABC News is reporting that Steele has revealed his sources to federal investigators.
