Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) on Tuesday released an explosive letter which exposed Fusion GPS Founder Glenn Simpson as having lied to Congress about his being hired to work against President Donald Trump after the 2016 Presidential Election.
The newly released report comes amidst growing concerns that the entire investigation into allegations of “Russian Collusion” were fabricated entirely based upon falsified information paid for by the Hillary Clinton for President campaign. Furthermore, the Federal Bureau of Investigation knowingly interfered in the United States of America's Democratic election, from which our Constitutional Republic is still attempting to recover.
The majority of America's general public agree that there was a coordinated effort to prevent President Trump from successfully winning the election as a candidate and that since his election there was an effort to bring him down from power.
Much of this relates to Fusion GPS and the role in which they played as per this effort from those who were opposed to Donald Trump’s candidacy.
Now, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is outright accusing the Fusion GPS founder, Glenn Simpson, of testifying before Congress with “extremely misleading” statements, even suggesting that he provided “outright lies,” during his Senate testimony in 2017.
Below is the newly released letter from Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) to Senator Coons (R-DE):

<blockquote>”I received your letter dated May 24, 2018, regarding your concerns about perceived inconsistencies between Mr. Trump, Jr.’s interview with the Committee, the transcript of which released on May 16, 2018, and a subsequent New York Times article published on May 19, 2018.”</blockquote>
</blockquote>”Your letter also referenced 18 U.S.C. § 1001; the referral Senator Graham and I made regarding Mr. Steele; and your request that Mr. Trump, Jr. testify at a public Committee hearing. To clarify, the Steele referral was based on contradictory information provided in two sworn statements to courts. In contrast, your concern is based on perceived inconsistencies between a Committee interview and a news article.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”Unfortunately, as we have seen all too frequently, reporting related to the Russia investigation and the Trump campaign has often been inaccurate.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”Rather than the Steele referral, a more apt comparison would be when Glenn Simpson Told the Committee in his interview that the FBI had told Steele it had a source inside the Trump Campaign, and then after the Ranking Member unilaterally released that transcript, subsequent news reports seemed to contradict this statement, claiming that Mr. Steele was actually just referencing Mr. Papadopoulos’ statement to Alexander Downer. Given that the discrepancy was between testimony to the Committee and unsworn news reports, I simply wrote to Mr. Simpson's attorney, referencing the potential discrepancy with the news reports, and asking if his client stood by his testimony. He replied that his client did stand by his testimony. You asked for my views about the issue raised in your letter. I would suggest Mr. Trump, Jr.’s attorneys be asked about these press account.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”Notably, even if the reporting is entirely accurate, it is not clear that anything in that article contradicts Mr. Trump, Jr.’s testimony, let alone materially so. Your letter cited to five questions from the transcript, but the last three do not appear to be implicated by the content of the New York Times article. Even regarding the other two, while it is possible there could be contradictions, there are potentially innocuous explanations as well.Of course, where we do have actual evidence of misleading testimony in Committee Interviews, we should treat it seriously.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”For example, when the Committee staff interviewed Glenn Simpson in August of 2017, Majority staff asked him: “So you didn’t do any work on the Trump matter after the election date, that was the end of your work?” Mr. Simpson answered: “I had no client after the election.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>"As we now know, that was extremely misleading, if not an outright lie. Contrary to Mr. Simpson’s denial in the staff interview, according to the FBI and others, Fusion did continue Trump dossier work for a new client after the election. As part of the public release of the House Intelligence Committee’s majority report on its Russia Investigation, the executive branch declassified some previously classified information from an FBI document."</blockquote>
<blockquote>"That information detailed a March 2017 meeting between Daniel Jones and the FBI. Mr. Jones stated that he was leading a research and investigatory advisory organization called the Penn Quarter Group, which “had secured the services Steele, his associate [redacted], and Fusion GPS to continue exposing Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>"Mr. Jones further told the FBI that the Penn Quarter Group “was being funded by 7 to 10 wealthy donors located primarily in New York and California, who provided approximately $50million.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”The report noted that Mr. Jones stated he planned to push the information he obtained from Fusion and Steele to policymakers on Capitol Hill, the press, and the FBI.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”As with statements to the Committee, statements to the FBI, like Mr. Jones’, are subject to 18 U.S.C. §1001. So, despite the fact Mr. Simpson said he had no client after the election, he in fact did, and that client revealed himself to the FBI. As with the circumstances surrounding the Steele referral, we once again have two seemingly contradictory statements in contexts where material lies are criminal. I would welcome your views on what actions you are willing to take with regard to Mr. Simpson's Testimony."</blockquote>
The explosive letter details the belief that Glenn Simpson lied under oath, which could imply that the Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ appointment of a Special Prosecutor in John Huber, will be bringing about another criminal referral in the form of perjury charges against Simpson.
The plot has indeed thickened.
