    Fusion GPS officials take the Fifth in Trump dossier interview on Capitol Hill

    Foxnews.com
    October 18, 2017

    Two top officials at the political research firm behind a salacious dossier alleging various Russian connections to President Trump's campaign invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination before the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday.

    Fusion GPS co-founder Peter Fritsch and top lieutenant Thomas Catan were subpoenaed to appear before the committee in a closed-door session on Wednesday but asserted their right not to testify, a source close to the matter told Fox News.

    Fritsch and Catan took the Fifth on every question posed by committee members. Another co-founder, Glenn Simpson, is under subpoena for a later date.


    The move was expected.

    “No American should experience the indignity that occurred today,” Fusion lawyer Joshua Levy said. “No American should be compelled to appear before a congressional committee just to invoke constitutional privileges.”

    A source close to the matter told Fox News that Democratic staffers in the hearing were aggressive and ran interference to protect Fusion GPS, often interrupting questions by Republican members on the committee.

    On Monday, Levy said in a letter to the panel that House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., was acting “in bad faith.”

    “Based on this Committee’s bad faith interactions with the undersigned counsel and its pattern of unprofessional conduct exhibited during different points throughout this investigation, you have left us with no choice but to advise our clients to assert their privileges in the face of these subpoenas,” he wrote, in a 17-page list of reasons why the company would not comply.

    Levy noted that Simpson spoke recently to another congressional committee, but asked that the company be excused from testimony before Nunes’ panel as sought by the subpoenas.

    A congressional official familiar with the matter fired back, saying in a statement to Fox News:

    "Democrats and Fusion GPS have tried to obstruct every effort to get the facts about the compilation of the Steele dossier and who paid for it, so it’s no surprise that Fusion GPS is saying they’ll continue to obstruct these efforts. Fusion GPS is clearly paving the way to plead the fifth, and Congress is trying to find out if they're trying to hide something."


    In a statement, Levy accused Nunes of using “his office to learn about who funded opposition research on Donald Trump than whether the Russian government interfered with our election. Americans of all political stripes should find his actions chilling."

    Nunes stepped back from the Russia investigation after criticism he was too close to the White House, but is still chairman of the panel and signs its subpoenas.

    The dossier in question claims that the Russian government had collected compromising information on Trump for several years. The document was circulated among journalists in 2016 and provided to the FBI.

    Over the summer, Simpson spoke privately for about 10 hours to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    Last week, a person familiar with the House subpoenas said they were originally requested by Texas Rep. Mike Conaway, the Republican who has led the Russia probe since Nunes stepped aside in April.

    Fox News' Catherine Herridge and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    This is not at all surprising... EC. But lets not forget one detail about Fusion GPS -- it was reported that Republicans that got them started on the dossier (during primary) and then handed them off to Clinton afterwards...

    Who is the Republican Swamp that needs to be taken down also? We already know McCain was invovled -- who else?!

    A lot of truth in that... I know a few republicans that vote (and more often, fundraise) for a living!

    In fact, my family hosted a fundraiser for one of them; he was a young fireball... and really successful. I was green enough that I thought I was a Republican, probably because I associated the party mostly with this guy... and there was a lobbyist at my table that I asked,

    "What's your impression of him so far?"

    Lobbyists: "He has a whole lot of potential, but he's new... and doesn't understand how 'everything works' yet... and how to 'get things done' in session."

    Me: "Well... you are here, so perhaps he knows all too well how it works!"

    I was happy that the lobbyist felt friction with him, but unhappy that he was at my table at all. I was happy to let the lobbyist know that he wasn't glamorous to us on main street!!!

    The Swamp os everywhere...

    There are many other Republicans who need to be sent home too.....it will be tougher to oust them than the Democrats.....the Democrats have the tendency to shoot themselves in the foot when pressured...and are bolder and will involve themselves in shady or criminal acts since they're convinced they can get away with it.

    Where do we go from here, in your opinion?

    1. Clinton hosts email on private server
    2. FBI Director Comey & Ass. Director McCabe draft statements clearing her PRIOR to even investigating
    3. FBI Director is fired and leaks govt info to press... leading to Special Prosecutor Mueller
    4. It is found that Mueller was Director of FBI during period of time when Clinton's enriched themselves through corrupt Russian purchase of US Uranium supplies... and the FBI witheld their info that could have prevented it

    ... or, at least that is the simple version.

    What do we do now?
