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

‘Restrictive’ Gun Control Did Not Prevent Christchurch Massacre

 New Zealand requires licensing and in-depth background checks for would-be gun owners, but neither gun control policy prevented Friday’s attacks in Christchurch that killed nearly 50 people.

The University of Sydney’s GunPolicy.org describes New Zealand’s gun control as “restrictive,” because owning guns in that nation is not a guaranteed right but a privilege extended by the government.


Moreover, before legally owning a gun, residents must acquire a license. The acquisition of that license involves passage of a background check that “considers criminal, mental health, medical, addiction and domestic violence records.” Third party references must also be provided to authorities during the license procurement process and interviews are conducted with the applicant’s immediate family.

Even after licensing, New Zealanders cannot buy a handgun or “military style” semiautomatic without providing an acceptable explanation for why they want such a firearm. Additionally, those firearms must be registered with the central government upon acquisition.

It is illegal to sell a gun to anyone without a license, which means the background checks for license acquisition are universal; they cover all gun sales and transfers. And in the event that an individual is buying a gun from a friend or neighbor instead of retail, “the buyer… is obliged to pass official background checks before taking possession.” Also, “the number and type of firearms which can be sold by a licensed gun dealer to a single gun owner is limited to one pistol, military style semi-automatic firearm, or restricted firearm per acquisition permit.”

Further, gun show sales are highly regulated in New Zealand.

Democrat lawmakers in the U.S. are promoting many of these very gun controls–universal background checks, licensing, more gun show regulation, limits on the number of guns that can be purchased, etc.–arguing that these measures will make Americans safe. It is not yet clear how the killer in Christchurch acquired his weapons, yet we see that these gun controls did not prevent an attack that killed nearly 50 unarmed innocents.

More than one mosque was attacked in Christchurch, and the shooters who converged on a mosque in Linwood were reportedly chased by an apparent attendee who happened to be armed for self-defense.
