Fusion GPS Thumbs Its Nose at Congress

As the Russian election meddling investigation continues to roll on, a central player has begun to emerge that may turn the entire investigation on its head. That player is research firm Fusion GPS, the organization responsible for creating the debunked, fallacious and salacious Trump/Russia dossier that got the whole ball rolling.

In July, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley subpoenaed Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS, seeking to glean more information about the infamous dossier and related interactions with the FBI. Initially Simpson refused to testify, pleading the Fifth Amendment, but a deal was later reached in which the subpoena was withdrawn in exchange for Simpson’s agreement to disclose “his involvement in creating the Trump dossier and interactions with the FBI” and “his alleged work with the unregistered foreign agents who met with the Trump family and campaign officials.”

Fast-forward to Thursday, when Fusion GPS turned over documents related to the Trump dossier. What was actually received by Senate Judiciary Committee, however, was described by spokesman George Hartmann as “mostly news clippings,” not a record of Fusion GPS’s substantive communications. In other words, this is what political strategist Dick Morris calls “a brazen disregard for a Congressional inquiry.”

Now the questions are mounting. What are Simpson and Fusion GPS seeking to hide? Who funded their work? After all the smoke being blown around about a supposed Trump/Russia collusion conspiracy, it now looks as if the embers from that fire are resting on the Democrat side of the fence.
