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 hope the House Judiciary serves Simpson with a subpoena. Make him come before the Committee and state publicly: “Base on advise of counsel, I refuse to answer the question based upon my Constitutional right to ….”

    I have been waiting months for someone to say that, and Simpson won’t be the last.

      “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”

      They already subpoenaed Simpson. He’s defying the subpoena itself based on “his constitutional rights not to testify under the First and Fifth Amendments”.

      Can they hold Simpson in contempt? Can they make him appear in person to plead the fifth? Is it an actual thing to say “I have a right *to not testify*”?

      It seems to me the next step would be: if Ohr’s testimony conflicts with Simpson’s initial testimony, then you refer Simpson to the DOJ. If Simpson doesn’t want to play the narrative spin game with Ohr (and Nellie), then he can sit on his fat ass and wait for the indictment. Then the question becomes: how do you get Sessions and Rosenstein to indict Simpson for perjury?

      Aaaaannnnnddd we’re back to Sessions and Rosenstein. I like full circles, but this is getting effing ridonkulous.

      If Jason Chaffetz is correct that AG Sessions is afraid to prosecute Hillary Clinton or anyone close to her, I don’t see many of these people ever going to jail, including Andrew McCabe. Sessions, and a hand full of RINOs, have squandered the opportunity of a lifetime to clean out the swamp.

      Even if POTUS fires Sessions after the mid-terms, two years have been wasted, and there are no guarantees he’ll be able to get the person who could change everything confirmed. Some may not even want the job knowing dems will wage a major smear against them, and may even do worse, to them and their family.

      Sessions was either in on it from the start, or was introduced to the concept of Arkancide his first day on the job.

                WARNING
                WARNING
                RANT!

                I used to love CTH. But lately a dark spirit has descended; there’s been too much internecine strife. There’s dejection and discouragement when we need to focus on WINNING.
                These things do not coexist.
                It almost seems like a spiritual battle, with some treepers afflicted…

                When I started reading CTH there was much more harmony and much less bitterness.

                The bitterness and strife started (I think) when the Sessions-haters began moping about how it was never going to happen… woe is us … Trump is too weak to fire Sessions … We’ll never see justice … too loooong … too impatient ….

                Whether Sessions is a bad guy or not–and he’d have to have changed entirely to be what y’all think, which might have happened, who knows?–
                But the corollary is NOT “so boo hoo wasted years … bad Q people …”

                Folks? This never was up to YOU.
                Taking out the mob is nearly impossible.
                When it’s been done, it’s taken decades.
                The entire American government 7th floor from last admin is not exactly an easy target;
                It’s the mob x a million.

                It’s rather a complex process.
                It’s not going to be instantaneous.

                So please.
                Stop hating Sessions. He might indeed be a villain or sleeping. But…we don’t KNOW. So put away your bitterness and dejection and impatience and mean little divisive snipes at “Q-tips”–(I’m NOT one…but lordy! most are much nicer than their detractors, so I feel protective)
                Can we agree that we don’t know for sure what’s happening behind the scenes, that we’re ALL frustrated, that we all agree on the major goals but disagree on whether some people are “black hats” or “white hats”…

                Could we just put aside Big Feelz and work alongside each other to do what we CAN?

                Avoiding the dejection and divisions that will KILL our chances of succeeding in midterms?

                Which is the ONLY way we’ll see the justice we crave? WINNING MORE SEATS?

                  BY LAW AG Sessions is SUPPOSED to keep his mouth SHUT!

                  Also AG Session ANSWERS TO VSG PDJT and NOT to Congress.

                  People keep forgetting that.

                  Here are the FACTS on the ground.
                  1. The SENATE confirms any nomination by President Trump. The make up of the 100 senators is 51 Republicans and that includes the Traitor McCain and the died in the wool Globalist Richard Burr (my Senator… barf gag…) and that doesn’t include runners up Flake, Miss Lindsey, McTurtle. The Senate has slow walked ALL of President Trumps nominations especially judges.

                  2. AG Sessions or ANYONE that Trump appointed, like Rudy Giuliani or Chris Christi would also have been forced to recuse.
                  Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals
                  RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
                  THIS IS THE RULE!!!!
                  GOVERNMENT ETHICS
                  “[…]C. DOJ-Specific Conflict of Interest Regulation: No DOJ employee may participate in a criminal investigation or prosecution if he has a personal or political relationship with any person or organization substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution, or who would be directly affected by the outcome. 28 CFR 45.2[…]”
                  RECUSAL from campaign issues (Muh! Russia) was an ABSOLUTE requirement for confirmation of ANY Trump AG pick PERIOD.
                  Sessions recused himself from the CAMPAIGN issues and nothing else.
                  Read US attorney general Jeff Sessions’ statement recusing himself from investigations into the 2016 presidential campaigns

                  The Senate had the POWER to put this part of the ‘Insurance Policy’ in place.

                  3. If it was not someone personally known to President Trump it would be someone recommended and you would have gotten a backstabber like Rosenstink.

                  So the DOJ has to come up with “rules in order to carry out the provisions of the Privacy Act.”

                  So here are the rules from the DOJ
                  “1-7.100 – General Need for Confidentiality
                  Much of DOJ’s work involves non-public, sensitive matters. Disseminating non-public, sensitive information about DOJ matters could violate federal laws, employee non-disclosure agreements, and individual privacy rights; put a witness or law enforcement officer in danger; jeopardize an investigation or case; prejudice the rights of a defendant; or unfairly damage the reputation of a person.
                  DOJ personnel should presume that non-public, sensitive information obtained in connection with work is protected from disclosure, except as needed to fulfill official duties of DOJ personnel, and as allowed by court order, statutory or regulatory prescription, or case law and rules governing criminal and civil discovery. Other than as necessary to fulfill DOJ official duties, disclosure of such information to anyone, including to family members, friends, or even colleagues, is prohibited and could lead to disciplinary action. Unauthorized disclosures of sensitive personal or proprietary information could lead to criminal prosecution or administrative action.”

                  1. Any communication by DOJ personnel with a member of the media relating to a pending investigation or case must be approved in advance by the appropriate United States Attorney or Assistant Attorney General, except in emergency circumstances. For administrative investigations not overseen by a U.S. Attorney or Assistant Attorney General, approval must be obtained from the Assistant Attorney General for Administration. Where the investigation is being handled by the Office of the Inspector General, approval must come from the Inspector General.
                   
                  2. DOJ generally will not confirm the existence of or otherwise comment about ongoing investigations. Except as provided in subparagraph C of this section, DOJ personnel shall not respond to questions about the existence of an ongoing investigation or comment on its nature or progress before charges are publicly filed.
                   
                  3. When the community needs to be reassured that the appropriate law enforcement agency is investigating a matter, or where release of information is necessary to protect the public safety, comments about or confirmation of an ongoing investigation may be necessary, subject to the approval requirement in subparagraph A.

              In short, Sessions properly recused himself because so integral a part of Trump campaign. (Trump feigns indignation to give possum silent killer Sessions more deep cover.) Rosenstein SCs Mueller knowing (from Trump) there is no there, there—but that Mueller is maybe as crooked as Comey and HRC. See Willis Eschenbach’s statistical analysis of the Mueler team composition at his blog for proof.
              Mueller spends a year beclowning himself and his investigation, during which the whole sordid “Spygate” ‘leaks’ out.

              Now we are approaching the PR endgame (timed to midterms) ensnaring Comey, Yates, Lynch, Brennan, Clapper, HRC (wait for the IG report) and maybe even Obumer himself. Susan Rice CYA email on inauguration day is a tell. Strzok/Page ‘Pres wants to know everything’ is a deadly gotcha.”

          Because it’s ultimately up to Sessions to take legal action. And since Sessions is “recused” from Anything And Everything Having To Do With Russia Ever In The History Of The ten Dimensions Of The Universe, then it falls on Rosenstein to take legal action. So: no legal action.

Brennan and Clapper said 17 DOJ entities claimed Russia meddled in the elections and that is the be all and end all that is comfortable for ALL involved, including every pundit (except Hannity and friends)who talks about it even on FOX. Humans hear only what they WANT to hear, and everyone hears it was necessary to surveil Trump and friends in hopes of catching the WikliLeaks culprit who stole the election from Hillary. They LOVE that narrative, and I, for one, am astounded that the President doesn’t seem to care enough about it to clear his name and get recompense.

        At the Time the “insurance” policy was discussed, no one knew Sessions would be picked as Atty. Gen. This was Summer 2016.

        I speculate the “insurance” policy was to invalidate ANY selection as AG. They were all social butterflies and had contacts with one Russian official or another.

        Then, with Comey and McCable in place to manage the fallout, any nominee ould be sandbagged by Senate Democrats on their compromised relationships and forced into a statement of recusal.

I would think a seasoned lawyer would have known that.

          Filing charges are one thing; getting a jury to indict and convict is something else since most of them would have to be tried in DC.

Leftist activist judges combined with bias juries = they walk. The nature of the beast means many people will be threatened or murdered. Trump is replacing judges but it will take years to change the courts. Statutes will expire. There might be some token fall guys but the rest will walk.

            To be even more specific….

            All of the thirteen colonies originally had slavery, including indentured servitude. A little before the time of the Revolution, colonies in the north, and associated territories to the west (current Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, etc.) started to enact laws against the practice. These laws would generally take effect over the course of years. This left slaveholders in these states in a bind. They could hold their slaves until the last minute, and incur financial loss when they were freed…..or the slaves could be “sold down the river” to places they might remain slaves, albeit at a discounted price.

            As with many botched implementations of good ideas, there were many ramifications of these policies that continue to this day. Any “Upstairs, Downstairs”-type arrangements got sacrificed on the altar of economic necessity — a slave family that had been treated relatively-well in an urban Massachusetts household for four generations could find themselves distributed across Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina doing field work.

            In that regard, being “sold down the river” was a huge final betrayal by northerners after a decades-long denial of human rights.

    PDJT has become very open about the democrats colluding with the Russian, and only the democrats, most recently. He said this in his last rally in Erie, and the media has been reporting it as “a PDJT lie,” basically.

    There is a reason that he has been saying that. It is obviously true and 100% completely correct, and it is and has been obvious on the surface, “prima facie,” for a long long time by the very definition and construct of the “Russia dossier” (hint: it used Russian sources and was paid for by the DNC-Hillary-and potentially Obama through PC law firm). This has been the elephant in the room for a long time, and it is a YUUUUUGE elephant.

    Does anyone, especially the fake news media remember when PDJT said that the Clinton campaign paid for the dossier? Remember how Hillary denied it, and the media called PDJT a conspiracy theorist, again? Remember when it was confirmed that Hillary paid for the dossier, and the media apologized to PDJT?

I was trying to find an answer to a question I’m mulling over about why RR would offer to quit his position twice early on in the Russia investigation. It’s worth scanning through just for the body language and the players themselves. I didn’t find my answer but to answer your question, I’d believe Admiral Rodgers and Director Coats all day long and they said the there was Russian interference .

    I’s like a much more unredacted copy of the FISA Court letter on violations. Also Rogers and others in public testimony on the nature of the misuse. This doesn’t mean giving the password to a database. Just means explaining how misuse was occurring, who allowed it, if information funneled back to Clinton campaign, etc.

    Why is the market tanking right now when all of the fundamentals of businesses and the economy are so strong? So gradually increasing the rates up one-quarter of a percent at a time back up to where they traditionally have been is the culprit? I recognize the negative of all of the collective debt in the system and the additional costs that will arise from having to pay greater service costs for that debt. But I strongly suspect this is a convenient means of once again changing the subject and trying to steal the solid economy from Trump going into the mid-terms. October surprise anyone?

  24. I’ve been offline for most of the day–I am gobsmacked by this NYMag story. What the heck!?* This is unbelievable, especially as we know that it is the Democrats, Hillary, BHO and their like that have refused to accept the election results.

    I suspect that the Republicans that agreed to “validate” the returns were recruited at the Sea Island meeting in Spring 2016. Colin Powell was already on my list of creeps, but wow, also Condoleezza. This is a HUGE deal and I can’t believe that people aren’t furious about this. (assuming that POTUS has known for some time).

    HOW DARE THEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And then to tell us that they refuse to be civil until they are in power. Unbelievable.

    You want to take the Fifth? Oh no you don’t. Give him conditional, limited immunity against anything he reveals under oath. Then he CAN’T refuse to testify. Sure, he gets away with it, but seriously, who the hell is Glenn Simpson and who cares about him? He’s a bit player. The real players were/are Hillary, Obama, Brennan, Clapper and Comey. I’d gladly let Simpson slither away free if it meant having his testimony against the others. We’ll probably never prosecute Hillary or Obama, but if Brennan gets locked up, I’d consider it a good day’s work.

    This was before PDJT won the election that they expected the Hag to win. So if they where planning the Russia fiction then, against a candidate they expected to lose…..why?
    Could it be that they where concerned about the amount illegal voting and vote rigging (tampered machines) and the Russian story was going to be their pre-prepared plan to divert public attention from any post election allegations of such.

The voting machines in many States are Soros manufactured, or so I’ve heard. if you watched the Scandals TV series you saw many weeks of the show were based on tinkering with the voting machines.

    i don’t understand how the article stating that the Obama White House planned to validate the election results if HRC had won was ‘by the book’ involvement with these Russians and/or people investigating the Russians. isn’t it normal to have recounts if a vote is close? Remember Al Gore? So, the article is saying that they would have denied PDJT that right to recount, and that is supposedly a ‘good reason’ for their activities involving Russians? Anyway, isn’t it each state’s Secretary of State who does this validation, not the Federal Government?

    Remember when Obama said he told Putin to “cut it out?” From The Hill, on 12/16/16 (MARK HENSCH):

    President Obama said he warned Russian President Vladimir Putin against further meddling in the U.S. presidential election after the hacking of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

    “At the beginning of the summer, we were alerted to the possibility that the DNC has been hacked,” he said Friday during his final White House press conference of 2016.

    “In early September, when I saw President Putin in China, I felt that the most effective way to ensure [more hacking] didn’t happen was to talk to him directly and tell him to cut it out, and there was going to be some serious consequences if he didn’t. And in fact, we did not see further tampering in the election process….”

    “…Obama said he wanted to avoid seeming partisan as suspicion mounted that Russia was interfering in the 2016 race between Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and GOP nominee Donald Trump.

    “I wanted to make sure that everyone knew we were trying to play everything straight. We weren’t taking one side or the other. That’s exactly how we should have handled it. Imagine if we had done the opposite. It would have become just one more political scrum,” he said.

Why the delay? Since the only thing that really matters above ALL else is the mid-term election, there clearly are many intrigues afoot on both sides to win. With the Republicans hold SO many cards, it’s hard to see how they could loose, but all of this must be part of a game…I cannot see far enough ahead to figure out the next move. Frustrating.
