Default Fusion Founder Responds To House ‘Deposition’ By Pleading Fifth

I hope the people responsible for this corrupt activity will pay the price. Too many have gotten away with criminal activity for too long.

Simpson, through his lawyer, indicated that he will plead the Fifth tomorrow, rather than testify to the Department of Justice’s involvement with the salacious Trump dossier.

In a stunning report, Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS, plans to invoke the Fifth Amendment when he appears before the House Judicial Committee tomorrow. Three key people connected to the salacious dossier created against President trump have been called to testify in the House investigation of the Obama Justice Department this week, but Simpson won’t say a word.

Fusion GPS is the ‘research group’ commissioned to create the Russian dossier against Trump by the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign, having been paid for the work through the law firm Perkins Coie.

Simpson, through his lawyer, Joshua Levy, announced late Monday that he will not be speaking under oath about any questions the Representatives of the United States have to ask.

“Compelling Glenn Simpson to appear for a confidential deposition after he has stated his intention to invoke his constitutional right not to testify reflects the worst practices of past congressional investigations and reinforces that this is a political exercise, not a serious inquiry,” Levy wrote in a statement.

James A. Baker, the FBI’s former top lawyer and individual who had a close working connection with former FBI Director James Comey, is scheduled to appear Thursday.

Earlier this month, Baker delivered bombshell testimony about the origin of the FBI’s Russia investigation of President Trump, according to sources. He allegedly reported that Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann gave him documents pertaining to the ‘Russia probe,’ which has lead experts to believe there may be another connection with Clinton and the DNC.

GOP Representatives have also scheduled a deposition with Nellie Ohr on Friday. She was a ‘researcher’ for Fusion GPS, while her husband, Bruce Ohr, is a current Department of Justice official who has already confirmed his contact with Simpson during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Apparently, Baker and Ohr are appearing for voluntary depositions, which will be taken under oath.

Baker was recently reported to have hidden the Clinton dossier link from the FISA court in order to get warrants against people like Carter Page.

Fox News reported that Page, a member of the Trump team, has filed a lawsuit suit in Oklahoma against the DNC and Perkins Coie, along with Marc Elias and Sussman, concerning the fact that the FBI and DOJ used the dossier to “form an essential part” of the FISA application to spy on him.

Page claims the accusations were “slanderous” and “libelous.”

Funny how the Left needs to know Kavanaugh's White House memos after being on a court for over a decade, or decades-old tax receipts from Paul Manafort, yet they yawn at a Clinton Campaign/DNC client blocking the clarifications of actual Congressional testimony made only 14 months ago that conflict with others' Congressional testimony...
