The creators of a fake, obscene and libelous “dossier” designed to destroy Donald Trump (paid for by the DNC) are doing everything they can to escape justice. President Trump must appoint a special prosecutor. This was a stealth coup. These people are just dirty, they are filthy. Not only did they go to Fusion GPS for dirt on Trump in 2016, but they went to them for dirt on Romney in 2012. The corrupt and criminal Democrats never thought they’d lose either election, not for one second — hence their reckless, feckless criminality.
If she had been elected in 2016, Hillary would never have prosecuted these crimes; after all, they were designed to put her in power. On the contrary, she would have rewarded them. But now it is all coming out, and the American people deserve to know the whole truth about the treasonous corruption of the Democrat Party.
“Fusion GPS co-founder will invoke ‘constitutional rights not to testify’: lawyers,” by Olivia Beavers, The Hill, October 11, 2018 (thanks to Christian):
Lawyers for Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS, told the head of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday that his client will “invoke his constitutional rights not to testify,” defying a GOP-issued subpoena seeking to compel him to give a closed-door deposition.
The lawyers told Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) in an electronic letter that Simpson will not participate in the committee’s inquiry because it “is not designed to discover the truth.”
“Consistent with the September 27, 2018 letter we sent to you, Mr. Simpson, whose testimony is a matter of public record, will not be participating in a confidential deposition before this Committee,” lawyers for Simpson wrote, according to a copy of the letter obtained by The Hill. “He will instead invoke his constitutional rights not to testify under the First and Fifth Amendments of the Constitution.”
The lawyers, who declined the committee’s initial request for an interview late last month, blasted the joint investigation being led by Judiciary and the House Oversight and Government Reform committees as a partisan-driven probe aimed at undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.
In the latest scathing letter, the lawyers continued to slam the committee — marking a departure from the otherwise typically quiet approach that most lawyers and witnesses involved in this joint probe have taken.
“The obvious — and at times explicitly stated — goal of this Committee is to discredit and otherwise damage witnesses to Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, all as part of an effort to protect a President who has sought to placate and curry favor with a hostile foreign power and who demands that the Justice Department stop investigating him,” they wrote.
The lawyers accused the panels’ Republicans of seeking to “ruin the reputations of some of the government’s most dedicated and experienced civil servants,” in an attempt to “weaken the independence of this Justice Department.”
The letter, in particular, pointed to the attacks by some of the conservative House members against former British spy Christopher Steele and current Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, who was recently interviewed by the committees’ investigators behind closed doors.
Simpson, a former journalist who later co-founded Fusion GPS, hired Steele to help compile the dossier, which makes a series of salacious allegations about President Trump’s possible ties to Russia.
The opposition research against Trump was funded in part by Hillary Clinton’s campaign — a flashpoint for Republicans who have pointed to ties between the opposition research firm and top federal officials as evidence to support their claims that there was bias against Trump among the top brass at the FBI and Department of Justice.
Some conservative House members have alleged that a contractor working for Simpson’s firm, Nellie Ohr, could have passed the dossier on to her husband, Bruce Ohr, who worked as a top official with the Department of Justice during the election.
The letter said that going after these officials has “deprived our country of their able assistance in the increasingly urgent fight against foreign interference with our democracy,” praising Steele and Ohr.
“For example, this Committee has sought to depict the relationship between Christopher Steele and Bruce Ohr — one of the UK’s top experts on Russia and one of the Justice Department’s leading experts on Russian organized crime — as somehow scandalous, when we should all want these two experts to share information in order to make us safer,” they wrote.
The letter quickly stoked anger among Republicans on the committees….
