Senator Grassley: Fusion GPS Head Glenn Simpson Was Either Outright Lying or "Extremely Misleading" in Claiming He Didn't Have a New Client Paying Him to "Research" RussiaGate After the Election

But he did have such a client -- a former Dianne Feinstein staffer who collected $50 million from Democrat billionaires to continue his "research."

So why did he claim in Congressional testimony that he had no client after the election?

The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is accusing Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson of giving "extremely misleading" statements, if not telling "outright lies," during Senate testimony in 2017.

...


"So you didn't do any work on the Trump matter after the election date; that was the end of your work?" Simpson was asked during the interview.

Simpson responded, saying: "I had no client after the election."

Grassley said Simpson's denial was false.

"As we now know, that was extremely misleading, if not an outright lie," the Republican wrote to his fellow Judiciary Committee member, Delaware Sen. Chris Coons.

"Contrary to Mr. Simpson's denial in the staff interview, according to the FBI and others, Fusion actually did continue Trump dossier work for a new client after the election," Grassley said.

Grassley pointed to statements a former Senate Intelligence Committee staffer, Daniel Jones, gave to the FBI in March 2017 about his work alongside Fusion GPS to investigate Trump's possible Russia links.

...

Jones' consulting firm, the Penn Quarter Group, "had secured the services Steele, his associate [redacted], and Fusion GPS to continue exposing Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election," he told the FBI.

When will the DOJ or FBI be prosecuting their asset Glenn Simpson for lying to Congress?

Oh, right. They won't be.
