Andrew Bostom reported:

Fusion GPS Russian expert Ed Baumgartner spoke with reporters in early January where he discussed his election-related research.

“I was never made aware of Chris Steele’s work or the dossier, and it was kept that way deliberately. I would have had nothing to add, anyway.”

But that is not what Glenn Simpson told Senate investigators about Baumgartner.

Simpson told the Senate that Baumgartner helped Steele, who was banned from entering Russia, figure out which hotels Trump stayed in while in Russia and if anyone ever offered him anything while there. But he did that mostly by “reading Russian newspaper accounts and that sort of thing.”…

…Simpson dissembled in similar fashion when asked if he talked to Veselnitskaya about her meeting with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016, where she lobbied against Magnistky Act sanctions with a come-on about offering dirt on Clinton that never materialized.
