The co-founder of the firm behind the anti-Trump dossier told House investigators Tuesday that he personally discussed with members of the media allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, though he did not speak to the sources behind the claims, a source told Fox News.
According to a source familiar with the matter, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson refused to answer key questions during his seven-hour, closed-door appearance before the House Intelligence Committee. The source said he would not answer questions on his relationship with specific journalists or ties to the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign, which financed the anti-Trump research via the law firm Perkins Coie.
But the source said Simpson acknowledged he did not personally look into certain aspects of the dossier -- which was authored by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and contained salacious allegations about the Trump teams ties to Russia.
Simpson told investigators he never spoke to the underlying sources of the document, never traveled to Russia and did not verify the dossier beyond comparing the claims to open source media reporting.
The source said Simpson also told investigators he was upset when then FBI Director James Comey re-opened the Hillary Clinton email investigation in late October 2016, and Simpson wanted to push back.

Hillary paid 9 million for this? Probably Russian uranium influenced payment money.
Called to the House Intel Committee and didnt personally look into
certain aspects of the dossier. Lying POS.
This also means the so-called intelligence community didn’t vet the dossier before running to the FISA court to go after Trump people. Idiot deep staters.
As expected he refused to answer any of the key questions. Guess he was choosing between jail and death by suicide.
These people are dangerous lunatics. They don’t believe in proof.
