Fusion GPS Glenn Simpson Invokes The 5th To Avoid Testifying, What Is He Hiding?

Flying under the radar of the media’s massive pearl clutching over the Kanye West/Trump meeting in the White House was this bit of news. Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson was finally subpoenad by the House Judiciary Committee. However, Simpson’s idea of testifying is to invoke the 1st and 5th Amendment. Which means, even if he does show up, he won’t say a damned thing.

The lawyers told Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) in an electronic letter that Simpson will not participate in the committee’s inquiry because it “is not designed to discover the truth.”

“Consistent with the September 27, 2018 letter we sent to you, Mr. Simpson, whose testimony is a matter of public record, will not be participating in a confidential deposition before this Committee,” lawyers for Simpson wrote, according to a copy of the letter obtained by The Hill. “He will instead invoke his constitutional rights not to testify under the First and Fifth Amendments of the Constitution.”

Well, alrighty then! To recap, Glenn Simpson is a former “journalist” who is a co-founder of Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm. Why do we keep hearing about them? Oh I dunno. Maybe it’s because the DNC and the Clinton campaign spent hundreds of thousands of dollars with them? Maybe it’s because the opposition research they came up with came from the Steele dossier? The very same Steele dossier that has been discredited six ways to Sunday? Yeah, that is Fusion GPS.

Keep in mind, he cut a deal to discuss his involvement with the Steele dossier.

Yet, within the last couple of months, things have changed. Now Simpson is claiming that this isn’t a REAL investigation.

“The obvious — and at times explicitly stated — goal of this Committee is to discredit and otherwise damage witnesses to Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, all as part of an effort to protect a President who has sought to placate and curry favor with a hostile foreign power and who demands that the Justice Department stop investigating him,” they wrote.

The lawyers accused the panels’ Republicans of seeking to “ruin the reputations of some of the government’s most dedicated and experienced civil servants,” in an attempt to “weaken the independence of this Justice Department.”

Keep in mind that we were all told the Steele dossier and everything else included in the Fusion GPS report was credible because it was investigated and researched properly. Keep in mind that we are STILL supposed to believe everything that Fusion GPS has told us. Yet suddenly, when asked once again and under oath to verify their findings and defend their research, Glenn Simpson invokes the 1st and the 5th?

Foks, something smells here BIGLY.

The letter, which you can read in full HERE, is laughable

  1. Ruin the reputation of civil servants? You mean folks such as Bruce Orh, Peter Strzok, and more?
  2. Christopher Steele is one of the UK’s top “experts” on Russia. HAHAHA!
  3. Key national security folks must never ever be questioned. Throw country under the bus? OK!
  4. Fusion GPS reported a crime? When and to whom?

Here’s the thing, as the letter from Simpson’s attorneys states, he appeared before the House committee THREE other times voluntarily. But now, he won’t? Gee, I wonder why?

In previous testimony, Simpson told lawmakers on the Senate Intelligence Committee that he did not have contact with Ohr until after the 2016 election. However, work emails written by Ohr show the two were in touch that August, if not earlier. Ohr’s notes also indicate that in December 2016, there was a meeting in Washington, D.C.’s Chinatown between Fusion GPS’ Simpson and Ohr, with Ohr writing, “Glen(n) gave me a memory stick.”

In addition, Ohr maintained extensive contact with Steele for months after the bureau cut ties with the former MI6 man in November 2016 for leaking information to the media about his FBI ties.

What is he hiding? What questions does he want to run from?

Who is he protecting besides himself?

Glenn Simpson may not say anything next week, but his silence given his previous testimony doesn’t look well for what little credibility he has left.

    Who is he protecting besides himself?
    His masters, Clinton and the DNC.

  • GWB says:

    I don’t think he’s as involved in this as the Clinton machine. They are separate monsters within the overall Democrat party, imo.

    • scott says:

      True GWB, but even the JEF understood that the only way to continue the destruction of America that he was so proud of was to ensure that clinton got elected, so he was very much involved / complicit in this dossier crap. It was his “Justice” department flunkies that allowed / pulled this crap.

  • harleycowboy says:

    Simpson won’t testify because too many people associated with the Clintons ended up dead.

  • Diane says:

    Trump will not testify. If he is innocent, why does’t the POTUS tell the American people he is innocent.
    He will not, because he cannot.
    Where is Trumps tax returns?
    Who does he owe money to?
    How many of his ‘I only hire the best people” have been indicted?????

    Clinton? You people elected a crook. A lying crook who has cheated people. A crook that has ties to Russia and Saudi Arabia. And you don’t know what he has done because he REFUSES to release his tax returns and LIES.
    You are all gullible.

    • Aussie says:

      You’ve got an mental issue there Diane.
      We can tell by you projectile vomiting of usual claims against Trump.
      No use in arguing with you because you are certainly certifiable, and most likely display these same traits in your day to day life.
      As an Australian, i can see that a certain percentage of USA is absolutely refusing to accept a Democratic election result, and are resorting to violence and bile at every opportunity.

      Please understand that Socialism DOES NOT work, hundreds of millions dead at Socialist hands prove that fact.
      Hitler was also promoted due to German Nationalist Socialism, and in its early stage supported by German Marxist Socialists in the German Parliament until he killed them in prisons.
      So when you sit down and scoff on your expensive red wine, remember that Hitler was of the Left as well, and following him, many other Left Wing murderers of innocents.
      At least the Left is good at keeping World Population down, with all the genocide they commit.

      remember one lesson: The Left always kills those who were the most vocal in getting them into power, every murderous leftist regime has done it.
      I know that you would easily slip those leather jackboots on and start the slaughter again.
      Maybe you should go to Sth America and blood yourself with the hundreds of thousands of Cuban agents suppressing Democracy in Sth America with usual Leftoid murder and violence.

      The Left is Fascism, it always has been and will always be so.

    I have no problem with it. Justice Jackson, the US Chief Prosecutor at Nuremberg said succinctly in Watts v. Indiana, “Any lawyer worth his salt will tell the suspect in no uncertain terms to make no statement to the police under any circumstances.” The 5th is there to protect the innocent as well as the guilty.

  • Aussie says:

    The USA has get one of it allies to extradite this guy to their Country, where there is no 5th available.

    Since lots of what this guy has done affects NATO, i think it should be easy to arrange.I’m sure Trumpy could lean on somebody to do.

    Also Clinton leaks affected Allies, so the same should be done to her and her cronies.

    Just the threat of this might open this guy’s mouth a bit.
