Leaked Fusion GPS Testimony: “Somebody’s Already Been Killed” Over Release Of Trump Dossier

An attorney for Glenn Simpson, co-founder of opposition research firm Fusion GPS, revealed during a leaked closed-door interview that “somebody’s already been killed” due to the publication of the Trump-Russia dossier by Buzzfeed on January 10, 2017.

The statement was part of a 312 page transcript of testimony leaked by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) following Fusion’s call for the transcripts to be released in a NYT op-ed published exactly one week ago, infuriating Committee chair Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA)

In closed-door testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee last year, Congressional investigators asked Simpson if Fusion GPS made efforts to “assess the credibility” of sources used in the dossier commissioned by Fusion and assembled by former MI6 spy Christopher Steele.

“Yes, but I’m not going to get into sourcing information,” replied Simpson.

After declining a follow-up question, Simpson’s lawyer Joshua Levy said the Fusion co-founder “wants to be very careful to protect his sources,” adding “Somebody’s already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier, and no harm should come to anybody related to this honest work.”

The Fusion / Steele dossier has come under intense scruitny after republicans began to question whether the document spurred the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign.

Feinstein said in a statement she released the transcript to combat misinformation about the inteview.

“The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice,” Feinstein said in a statement. “The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public.”

A spokesman for Sen. Grassley said Feinstein’s release “undermines the integrity of the committee’s oversight work and jeopardizes its ability to secure candid voluntary testimony relating to the independent recollections of future witnesses,” adding “It’s totally confounding that Senator Feinstein would unilaterally release a transcript of a witness interview in the middle of an ongoing investigation – a witness that Feinstein herself subpoenaed last year for lack of cooperation.”

    Officially Censure Feinstein with a simple majority vote of the Senate. Send the message loud and clear. Past Senate censures have been issued for “breach of confidentiality” so the precedent is set. She would have to give up any senior committee positions.

    Baloney.

    Very credible people in the Intelligence world are skeptical of the “DNC hack” narrative but you won’t hear a lot of that on the MSM.

    Yes, only the most credible people are skeptical. The use of the term MSM confirms your expertise in all thinks media, and the most ablest of cut-and-pasters proves this is all fake.

    By the way, didn’t you just use a MSM article to prove that the MSM has it all wrong?

    You seem a little turned inside out. No?

    God I love the uneducated.

    (Now, quickly find a gramatical error and we’ll all be mightily impresses.)

    Clueless is a strange one.

    Brainwashed and dirty

    I bet if I do some home work I will out this one just like I did with frog.

    First question clueless , do you work with children or young adults in any way?

    Do you have a governmental job?

    If you lie, it’s only gonna make it worse.

    I’m sympathetic in a way to the people who consume MSM with the expectation they’re getting legit journalism.

    We were all brought up to respect the fourth estate. It’s a serious dose of cognizant dissonance when reason and logic bring you to the conclusion that the media are in the tank for the establishment. It must be hard for people raised on MSM that don’t understand the anti-Elite wave that elected Trump and who actually believe the MuhRusia nonsense (that respected progressives* find embarrassing) to see the MuhRussia narrative fall apart day by day.

    Although, devolving to “Yo Mamma. No, yo Mamma” is unlikely to provide any light on this.
