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 Simpsons 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.
Steeles dossier reportedly served as some of the basis for the FBIs investigation into Trumps 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 Steeles 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 Steeles trip to Rome to meet with the FBI. He said he believes that the trip expenses may have been reimbursed by the FBI.
I dont think we did, Simpson stated, referring to whether Fusion GPS paid for Steeles travel to Rome to meet with the FBI. I have no information that we paid for it.

I’m going to need a lot more popcorn.
The Roar of Republicans being Mute on this is DEAFENING. Where are the C********?
Time for another mass casualty incident.
This is probably the lie Steele told that Grassley referred for prosecution.
My, my, my.
If true, this is illegal.
People should be going to jail.
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.
Many if not most of them are hopelessly compromised too.
Melt the phone lines!

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.
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.
