Fusion GPS Co-Founder Glenn Simpson, Will Invoke 5th Amendment Protection to Avoid Congressional Testimony…

It is reported today that Fusion-GPS co-founder, Glenn Simpson, will not agree to testify to congress and will invoke his fifth amendment privilege to avoid answering questions.

Chris Steele – Bruce Ohr – Glenn Simpson

This is interesting for several reasons.  Recent evidence and testimony has conflicted with Simpson’s prior testimony.  Specifically testimony from DOJ official Bruce Ohr who testified to meeting with Glenn Simpson and Christopher Steele in August 2016 prior to the FBI seeking a FISA application against Carter Page.

In prior testimony Simpson said he only met with Mr. Ohr sometime after Thanksgiving of 2016.  Not coincidentally it is the FBI interview notes of Bruce Ohr that congress has requested to be declassified, and that DAG Rod Rosenstein wants to keep hidden.

Simpson hired Bruce Ohr’s wife Nellie Ohr, in late 2015 to work on the Trump opposition research project.  That oppo research effort evolved into the Christopher Steele authored dossier after the DNC and Hillary Clinton hired Fusion-GPS in April of 2016.

One of the most likely reasons for Simpson to take the fifth amendment is his network of activity extends beyond the DOJ and FBI, and directly connects to the Obama White House during the election time-frame the dossier was being assembled.  It does not seem coincidental the Obama administration recently began seeding the media with a story about why the White House was active in the ‘Trump Russia Collusion’ narrative.

The New York Magazine article dated October 10th (yesterday) is a clear signal that someone in/around the previous Obama administration team is seeking to create a plausible ‘by the book‘ excuse, for why the White House was engaged with the same elements constructing the Trump dossier.  The timing is simply too transparent.

The NYMAG article outlines a secret meeting and secret strategy from the Obama White House to force candidate Donald Trump to accept a defeat in the 2016 election:

In October 2016, senior staff in the Obama White House discussed what they should do if Hillary Clinton won the November election and Donald Trump refused to accept the result as legitimate.

[…] The Obama White House plan, according to interviews with Rhodes and Jen Psaki, Obama’s communications director, called for congressional Republicans, former presidents, and former Cabinet-level officials including Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, to try and forestall a political crisis by validating the election result.

In the event that Trump tried to dispute a Clinton victory, they would affirm the result as well as the conclusions reached by the U.S. intelligence community that Russian interference in the election sought to favor Trump, and not Clinton. (read more)

Remember, despite the claims by DNI James Clapper and CIA Director John Brennan, in the final report NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers disagreed with the premise the Russian election involvement was to help Trump.  Specifically the Russian efforts went both ways including the organization of anti-Trump rallies at Trump Tower.

That NYMAG report, published yesterday, appears to be an attempt to make an excuse for why the White House was engaged with the participants in the Russia Collusion narrative.

However, in hindsight, the actions and motives by all of the participants in October 2016, become increasingly clear.  As quoted by Hillary Clinton during the second debate, October 9th, 2016:

HILLARY CLINTON: “But, you know, let’s talk about what’s really going on here, Martha, because our intelligence community just came out and said in the last few days that the Kremlin, meaning Putin and the Russian government, are directing the attacks, the hacking on American accounts to influence our election.

And WikiLeaks is a part of that, as are other sites where the Russians hack information, we don’t even know if it’s accurate information, and then they put it out. We have never in the history of our country been in a situation where an adversary, a foreign power, is working so hard to influence the outcome of the election. And believe me, they’re not doing it to get me elected. They’re doing it to try and influence the election for Donald Trump.“

Again, in hindsight, the above highlighted part of Clinton’s statement during the second debate inherently implies her knowledge of the closed-door white house meeting.  Clinton didn’t stop at saying Russia was trying to interfere in the election, she specifically framed the issue as Russia trying to help Trump win the election.

Back to Glenn Simpson…

It is entirely likely Glenn Simpson knows exactly who, from the White House, was involved in the efforts to support his anti-Trump work.   Simpson’s wife, Mary Jacoby, visited the White House on April 19, 2016, the day after NSA Director Mike Rogers shut down contractor access to the NSA and FBI database on April 18, 2016.

The wife of Glenn Simpson (Fusion GPS), Mary B. Jacoby, with years of Russia-angled reporting –including Donald Trumpvisits the White House in April 2016, at the same time as the DNC and Clinton hire Fusion GPS to conduct the opposition research on Donald Trump, surrounding Russia.  [WH Log Link]

(The Hill) A lawyer 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 lawyer, Joshua Levy, told Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) in an electronic letter that Simpson will not participate in this 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 write, 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.” (read more)

    I think calling in all these small-group conspirators and making them assert their 5th Amendment rights in response to pointed questions is a wonderful idea.

    It’ll produce some amazing soundbites and supercuts for YouTube (“Glenn Simpson takes the 5th – 400 times in 13 minutes!”). Set it to music with autotune.

    Just have to get the Congressmen to keep their questions succinct enough to fit the format.

        Of course, most of the alphabet news organizations won’t cover Simpson repeatedly invoking the 5th amendment. If it is bad news for their propagada push, then simply ignore it. Their viewing public can then rest easy that they know nothing of any illegal activity that was perpetrated in the run up to the 2016 election (with elements in government continuing that today). That is their modus operandi.

        And the way things are going, videos like those suggested by 6X47 will just disappear from YouTube and Twitter. History is what those who control the strings of power wish to make it.

          We need some of “our” good guys, like Jordan and Meadows, to start a nationwide ad campaign designed to play 60 second commercials on all the networks, 10 times a day, 24/7, all the way up to the election. The ads need to be hard-hitting, seriously damaging ads, showcasing the democrats corruption, the frequent but never reported nationwide cases of voter fraud, their organizing the atrocious Trump Dossier, the despicable hit job on Justice Kavanaugh, the ChiCom’s murdering our ENTIRE CIA intelligence network….and the coincidental ChiCom spy employed as Chi Di Fi’s (who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee) driver for 20 YEARS, their connections to the violent antifa mob activity (including college campuses and shootings / stabbings), and also how those groups are funded. “That will cost an enormous amount of money,” said Captain Obvious…..but, (you knew there was a BUT) if we started a GoFundMe account, I am POSITIVE we could raise the cash. There are literally MILLIONS of us who would gladly donate to such an awesome ad campaign. I would give VERY GENEROUSLY. As a matter of fact, if such a campaign is started, I will give moderately at first, BUT, if the ads are as hard-hitting as I’ve described, I pledge $2,000 publicly today. LET’S DO IT!!!

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but we don’t need Glenn Simpson, Bruce Ohr, et al, to talk. Trump can give us everything we need by interacting, declassifying, and making public everything he needs to put the squeeze on them.

    Ohr and Simpson recede safely into the darkness, but Trump can turn the spotlight on in a big way, and bring them right back out. And that’s when they begin feeding on each other.

      +1. I’m no J.D., but have an in-law who’s on the bench of the U.S. S. District. Well known, well respected who a few years back presided over a case that grabbed national “attention”. First time I met him I learned we actually grew up 5 blocks from each other in Brooklyn, N.Y., At holiday gatherings and out of respect and more, I never solicited his thoughts on national issues, but during a 4 July discussion of a serpent named Weissman he made a short though pointed reference there was quite sufficient evidence for Just-Us to have assigned U.S. atty’s., maybe Jessie Liu (MY thought), and have convened a grand jury to investigate 0bama’s treasonous criminal cabal at the Dept. of Just-Us and their armed proxy fbi. I’m actually angry at meself for not having pressed him for more even though he I’m near sure would have cut anymore off.

      I don’t know what the hell Trump is thinking and don’t subscribe to the Dopium Den of “Q-Anon” which may be a leftist scam. Now Trump references his 35K ft. meet with Rosenstein, his “surprise” Rosenstein doesn’t show before the Judiciary committee, and references to “calls from “allies”. How many, who, and WHY conveyed this angst? What’s the predicate for these “allies” even asking this? How pervasive does this massively treasonous conspiracy actually run? Now Trump fails to release documents he said he would… not that it would make a damn bit of difference if the ‘rat takes the House let alone the senate too. For his part Rosenstein is betting on this happening 6 November. He knows Trump knows. And Trump knows that Rosenstein knows it too. But then again, I never believed Trump was coming to save us to begin with. Many here do.

So, how long does it take to review an 80 page FISA warrant that the New York Times already has, when the President says “do it now!”?
        We won’t (and no one should) vote or give money until the records are released, and PDJT stops protecting the swamp cprruption at the FISA court, FBI and CIA.

          “Welshed”, no bon mots, Beau?
          It’s derogatory, like “Gyped” or “Jewed”.
          Many years ago, I was interviewing
          a prisoner in jail. During the interview, the inmate alluded to a situation where
          he had been defrauded. But the way he said it was, “I got jewed”. Taking umbrage, I replied, “I beg your pardon!” He replied, “What, are you a Jew?” I replied, “Does it matter?”
          Instead, how about the using of another phrase, ‘He went back on his word’, instead?

          Personally, I don’t think we have all the facts yet on why the President ‘changed his mind’
          on releasing the un-redacted information. But I am impatient and frustrated, too.

      It is highly likely that President Trump won’t declassify most of the documents until after the election. I also firmly believe that POTUS is going to clean house at the DOJ, starting with Sessions and Rosenstein. To do so now will give the appearance that it’s nothing more than a political scheme to gather support for Republicans for office or reelection. However, if the Republicans hold the house and senate, even picking up more seats, POTUS shouldn’t have any problem doing what needs to be done, including getting more of his appointments through come January.

      President Trump ran for office with no prior political experience. He rewarded those who were loyal to him by appointing them to various positions, including Rinse Penis and Jeff “Do Nothing” Sessions. POTUS has been finding out the hard way, that not all of the people he appointed were best suited for the positions he appointed them to. Some didn’t make it past the 6 month point after POTUS was sworn in. Others, including and especially Sessions, take time to remove from their positions. I have no doubt that the ones President Trump appoints to replace Sessions and Rosenstein, will be better suited and well qualified to fill those positions and hopefully work hard to start going after the swamp creatures, especially those who conspired to take our President.

    The story about Obama having a secret backup plan is bunk. Recall that in April
    – Mike Rodgers shutdown the contractor access to govt systems in April of the election year.
    – Sussman visited Ohr,
    – Kasinich, Cruz and Trump in the running
    – Arrangement with Fusion, Coie, DNC, Hilary campaign
    – Steel hired in Apr-May
    – they were cooking up the exit strategy for Hilary’s investigation
    – I recall a speech from BHO near the end of May where I first heard the utterance of Russian Involvement in the election…
    – June -August, initial FISA requests were rejected if memory serves.
    ……
    Too damn convenient. They had already started on the Trump ins policy and had to exonerate Hilary before that could happen.

    Additionally they had to be looking at the crowds for Trump vs the other candidates….because the news outlets were. The debates weren’t until Sept-Oct, when Chris Wallace raised the “will you accept the results” question to Trump. They were coming up with their insurance plan between Jan-Mar , because it was April when things triggered. This publication was a narrative in hopes of justifying any embarrassing or incriminating information that looks to be coming out soon. Because when you look at the timeline of events, the O administration itself seemed to be genuinely concerned about the viability of their candidate. And I dont think this article was geared towards conservatives, because we arent stupid. I think they are worried about their own base. People need to understand the NT’s and Dem’s, it wasnt about the fear of what Trump would be like as a President to U.S. as whole, it was and is their gravy train being taken away and stripped of their power and status.

    .If you look at BHO’s political career, that is his MO for every race he has been in because he could never win on his own merits, he always waited till the last minute and pulled the October surprise for max effect. If a real choice was provided in 2008 or 2012 instead of bumbling RINO’s, he would have lost. The entire plan has his name all over it.

    Declassify the whole damn thing and use the foreign information as leverage against the other idiots.

The evidence speaks for itself, therefore their testimony to attempt to clear the record is for naught. If after the midterm election, these guys still flail around with no clear directional pathway to indictments, the FBI and DOJ are completely corrupt and serve no value to a sovereign USA.

      I keep visualizing the political landscape right now as a movie. It’s set in a dank basement room in a police station, like the ones in classic film noirs, with a huge spotlight trained in the eyes of the cabal/coupsters as they sit in a wooden chair surrounded by people they cannot see in the darkness – relentlessly pounding them with questions.

      It’s a movie that at least 63 million people who voted for VSGPDJT are watching. I firmly believe that a vote for Trump in itself was a redpill, and cannot believe that anyone who did so is not watching very closely for the results of their gamble on the man.

      Furthermore, all of the people watching this classic movie are telephoning their millions of friends, the independents, and saying “Are you watching this? It’s incredible!”

      In the meantime the small 1/5 of the country (at best), who refuse to watch the blockbuster hit movie, are all at a mournful and bombing cocktail party. There, the stars of another movie which was recently competing for the biggest award are drinking themselves under the table with a few lapdogs and droning on about their fabulousness.

      I had a terrible thought last night. Maybe Trump is embarrassed by the identity of the mole the FBI had in his campaign, because it makes him look foolish. Maybe because it was… Nikki Haley?!

        I think the Trumpet has no qualms about changing his public opinion of a person when he learns more things or when the person does new things.

        Think Cohen. Trump praised him for a long time, and then he cast him aside after Cohen seemingly went to the dark side.

      And if Huber *hasn’t* really been working on this all this time in any meaningful way, consider how far behind we are — how long it would take to actually build the cases. And who would do it?

      The fact that we’re now linking “justice” to the midterm is a travesty. A travesty on its face and by itself — regardless of who wins. It will mean the President of the United States either lacked the power/ability to act on an ongoing COUP ATTEMPT for 2 whole years while holding ALL BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT, or that the President strategized regarding a coup attempt — leveraged it — according to a political calculus. Doesn’t one of those have to be true?

      It also implies that Trump believes the Republicans will hold the majorities (would he possibly delay declassification if he believed the Ds would be taking over? The second they win, his leverage and ability to control events plummets.) But there is NO GUARANTEE at all, and historical precedent would strongly point otherwise (granted, we’re not living in normal times ….). I can say however that nothing makes me want to NOT GO ALONG with this more than feeling my vote is being manipulated. Isn’t that part of what drew us to Trump in the first place? And if people pile on with scorn about the necessity of voting — and voting republican — that just underscores the manipulation.

      Neither I nor any member of the public created this do-or-die political moment; it is entirely the creation of the party in power, which has funneled righteous and justified anger — anger that those in power have been stoking for 18 months — into a campaign rallying cry for the midterms. Really think about that — take Trump out of it — and just look at the abstract reality. Stoked anger for 18 months all now directed NOT toward transparency and proper application of the rule of law, but toward an electoral outcome. Maybe this time is different. But please keep open eyes about this — regardless of what anyone plans to do, please look at the basic structural reality of how absolutely WRONG this is. In all directions.

      It’s hard to believe the reality of the current moment. I have not truly contemplated the possibility that NOTHING may ever come of this, as far as accountability. But right now, looking at the scorecard and listening to what is being said (without reading in 4D chess, secret plans or motivations), NOTHING happening remains at least 50/50 possible, if not very likely.

And the Dems could easily have an October surprise up their sleeve, and declassifying after that would be easy to paint as retaliation. If Trump misses the opportunity to bring justice to the coup plotters, and then looses the ability to do it through the election, it will be one of the biggest legal fumbles in American history. Trump’s most serious flaw is that he loves bravado WAAAY too much!

        Also, where is the line between withholding incriminating evidence with no valid national security justification — and obstruction of justice?

        I understand needing to manage extreme sensitivities and work around an entire corporate media determined to suppress information, which much of the country does not want to learn or isn’t ready to believe anyway. Delays driven by that reality are frustrating, but at least still consistent with the mission of achieving transparency, imposing consequences, and restoring our justice system. Delays for an election are different. At some point, hiding corruption is what it is — hiding corruption. Hiding corruption, by act or omission, is a complicit act. There’s a line — we’ll all disagree on where it is — but there is a line. Linking publication of incriminating evidence to an election is playing with fire. It risks losing the moral and legal high ground, and rightfully so.

    Deripaska is Russian President Vladimir Putin’s right-hand man and state business partner.

    Solomon also said that Deripaska will testify before Congress without immunity and that Paul Manafort “stole money” from him.

    Oleg Deripaska (rhymes with Alaska) is fluent in English.
