CONFUSION GPS: Grassley Trashes Founder's Testimony as an 'OUTRIGHT LIE'

Originally published at:

Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley called-out the Fusion GPS founder over his “extremely misleading” testimony before Congress Thursday, saying his remarks may have been an “outright lie.”

Grassley sent a scathing letter to Democratic Senator Christopher Coons this week, slamming Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s official appearance before Congress; saying “As we now know, that was extremely misleading, if not an outright lie,” regarding Simpson’s claims he “had no client after the election.”

“Contrary to Mr. Simpson’s denial in the staff interview, according to the FBI and others, Fusion actually did continue Trump dossier work for a new client after the election,” said the letter.

“The letter cites the House Intelligence Committee’s Republican-authored Russia report, which included a footnote detailing a March 2017 interview between the FBI and Daniel J. Jones, a former staffer for Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein. According to the footnote, Jones told agents he was leading a research organization called the Penn Quarter Group,” writes Fox News.
