Fusion GPS Founder CEO Glenn Simpson  Lied In Senate Testimony

Fusion GPS Founder CEO Glenn Simpson 
Lied In Senate Testimony

by Bre Payton

{thefederalist.com} ~ Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said Monday that Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee staff about whether his infamous firm continued to investigate Donald Trump after the 2016 election.

In a letter to Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut), Grassley stated that Simpson told committee staff in 2017 that he stopped probing now-President Trump and his associates’ connections to Russian officials after the 2016 presidential election because he “had no client after the election.”

Here’s what committee staff asked Simpson and what the Fusion GPS founder had to say in return last August:

When the Committee staff interviewed Glenn Simpson in August of 2017, Majority staff asked him: ‘So you didn’t do any work on the Trump matter after the election date, that was the end of your work?’ Mr. Simpson answered: ‘I had no client after the election.’ As we now know, that was extremely misleading, if not an outright lie. [emphasis added]

As The Federalist reported back in April, a former staffer for Sen. Dianne Fein-stein (D-California), Daniel Jones, told the FBI he had retained Fusion GPS’s services to “continue exposing Russian interference” after the election.

Jones, who runs an investigative firm called the Penn Quarter Group (PQG), reportedly told the FBI he “planned to share the information he obtained with policymakers on Capitol Hill and with the press, and also offered to provide PQG’s entire holdings to the FBI.”

The two testimonies from Jones and Simpson conflict with one another. Either Fusion GPS continued to investigate Trump’s Russia ties, or it did not.

Based on a false NPR story, on Monday Blumenthal accused Donald Trump Jr. of lying to congressional investigators about his father’s business dealings in Moscow. The article has since been heavily edited and given a three-paragraph-long editor’s note admitting that the initial version of the story misrepresented Trump Jr.’s testimony.

Nevertheless, Blumenthal sent a letter to Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, asking him to bring Trump Jr. before the committee to testify again. In response to this request, Grassley cited Federalist Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway’s  article that pointed out NPR’s flawed article and said the Democratic senator’s allegations against Trump Jr. are, in fact, unsubstantiated.

After dismissing Blumenthal’s allegations, Grassley said the committee does have evidence that an individual mislead committee staff — but that it’s Fusion GPS’s founder who lied, not Trump Jr.

ALERT ALERT

Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall

President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.

Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.

And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.

Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.

Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.

Via Law and Crime:

As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.

“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”

Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.

“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
