Feinstein’s Fusion Flop
This week Sen. Dianne Feinstein released the transcript of an August 22, 2017, Senate Judiciary Committee interview with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson.
In September or October of 2015 somebody wanted Fusion to take a look at Trump, but Simpson’s lawyer would not let him identify the client.
Simpson said “Chris” Steele was a leading Russia investigator at MI6, and a friend who could “share interests on Russian kleptocracy and organized crime issues.”
Simpson did identify Steele’s FBI contact but the transcript blacks out the name.
Simpson said Fusion began getting questions from the press about whether the FBI was investigating Trump and “we encouraged them to ask the FBI that question.”
