Fusion GPS Founder: FBI May Have Paid Expenses for Anti-Trump Dossier Author

TEL AVIV — Glenn R. Simpson, the co-founder of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS, stated in testimony it “makes sense” to him that the FBI paid for a trip to Rome by the former British spy who was contracted by Simpson’s company to produce the largely discredited 35-page anti-Trump dossier.

Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent, to do the work cited in the anti-Trump dossier. Last July, Steele reportedly traveled to Rome, where he met with an FBI contact to supply the agency with the anti-Trump dossier and other information he found during the course of his anti-Trump work.

Steele’s dossier reportedly served as some of the basis for the FBI’s investigation into Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and unsubstantiated claims of coordination with Russia.

In August 22 testimony released last week and reviewed in full by Breitbart News, Simpson stated that Steele’s outreach to the FBI was “something that Chris took on on his own.”

Simpson stated that as far as he knew Fusion GPS did not fund Steele’s trip to Rome to meet with the FBI. He said he believes that the trip expenses may have been reimbursed by the FBI.

“I don’t think we did,” Simpson stated, referring to whether Fusion GPS paid for Steele’s travel to Rome to meet with the FBI. “I have no information that we paid for it.”

This is probably the lie Steele told that Grassley referred for prosecution.

A FBI finance officer had to sign off on this. It would have to be fairly illegal and some superior probably had to send them an email or document ordering them to do it. So, you just need to find the account involved, the finance officer and have them come in for an interrogation. They’ve probably got all the documentation lined up in a folder and ready to hand off.

Melt the phone lines!

Call (202) 224-3121 house switchboard. If you don’t know who your rep is, no worries, they will help you find it and then transfer to their office.

“I want the 4 page memo from the House Intelligence Committee released yesterday to be declassified and released to the public now!” is what to say.

On twitter, type this and tweet (it will auto complete if you click it):

I think they , just like Democrats, are perfectly willing to take down Trump, if it means getting cash from Globalist interest. They are as much Dems as Dems.

Each day as more is revealed. The more valid and outstanding is Travis McGee's jpg, which told us what was happening in the DOJ/FBI before all of these emerging reports.

Weeks ago Travis Mcgee started posting the Smug shots of the seditionist thugs in the DOJ/FBI shown below.

That is just foolish.

The Republicans are in the process of springing the trap that will destroy the Democrats. Total destruction is a process to be implemented slowly over time to insure every scrap is destroyed

The democrats know it and are currently in deep panic mode

This was overt TREASON . It needs to be prosecuted as such.
