Goodlatte Subpoenas Fusion GPS Co-Founder Glenn Simpson

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee announced Friday that he has subpoenaed the co-founder of the research group that released the salacious and unverifiable Steele Dossier.

As part of our joint investigation into decisions made by DOJ in 2016, today I subpoenaed Glenn Simpson to appear for a deposition,” said Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) on Twitter.

The dossier, compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, accused the Trump campaign of colluding with Russia to win the 2016 election. The Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC hired Fusion GPS to do opposition research against President Donald J. Trump in early 2016.

“We’ve also invited James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, Stuart Evans, Richard Scott, Sally Moyer, and Mike Kortan as witnesses. Will subpoena them if necessary,” Goodlatte said.

Fusion GPS hired Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya to set up a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower as part of an apparent plot to set Trump up as a Russian stooge. She also worked out of  the Washington offices of Cozen O’Connor, a law firm run by a former Obama administration official. Veselnitskaya had a dinner meeting with Simpson the night before the Trump Tower meeting.

Meanwhile, Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr’s wife Nellie worked for Fusion GPS – a fact that he hid on official financial disclosure forms – before he passed the Steele Dossier on to James Comey’s FBI.

“Goodlatte is angling to go after the entire Fusion GPS operation, which will clearly show that there’s no way Trump could have obstructed justice in a case where there is no justice — only vengeful government agents trying to play politics by bending the law against a populist candidate,” Big League Politics reported in August.

With the announcement that Simpson has been subpoenaed, it appears that Goodlatte and his committee are a step closer to unraveling the deep state plot to destroy Trump.
