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.

‘Breaking: Supreme Court Sides With Trump Over Sanctuary Cities In Deportation Case

 The US Supreme Court sided with President Trump over sanctuary cities today in a 5-4 decision.

The court ruled the government has the power to detain people who are facing deportation because of the crimes they committed.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined justices Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh in the majority.

Bloomberg.com reported:

A divided U.S. Supreme Court bolstered the government’s power to detain people who are facing deportation because of crimes they committed, siding with the Trump administration in a clash with implications for so-called sanctuary cities.

The case focused on non-citizen legal residents who serve a criminal sentence, get released and later are arrested by federal immigration agents.

The 5-4 ruling Tuesday said those people aren’t entitled to a bond hearing, and the possibility of re-release, while the Homeland Security Department presses its case for deportation. The ruling reversed a decision by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

In announcing the decision from the bench, Justice Samuel Alito said the lower court had made a “policy judgment” using reasoning that “makes a mockery” of the federal immigration laws…

…Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh joined the majority, but they splintered in their reasoning.

Thomas and Gorsuch didn’t agree with all of Alito’s opinion. They said courts lack power to consider issues involving the detention of non-citizens until those people are facing a deportation order.
