Fusion GPS Founder Glenn Simpson Tells Congress Trump Was Unsuitable to be President

Last Tuesday Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) unilaterally released the full August 2017 testimony of Glenn Simpson from Fusion GPS.

Fusion GPS was hired by Democrats after John Podesta’s emails were leaked online by Wikileaks back in June 2016. Fusion GPS was hired to prove a ‘Trump-Putin conspiracy’ after the DNC was allegedly hacked by Russia.

Fusion put together a fake dossier that was never fact checked and had extremely ridiculous claims on Donald Trump’s links to Russian figures. Fusion GPS knew they needed to find an extremely gullible politician to pass on their fake dossier to the US intelligence community and so they used John McCain to turn it over to the FBI.

The FBI then used the phony dossier to spy on Donald Trump and his campaign during the 2016 election and during the transition period after his victory.

Now this…

In the testimony leaked last week Glenn Simpson said he reached a conclusion in early 2016 that Donald Trump was unsuitable for president.

Breitbart.com reported:

In testimony released publicly last week, Glenn R. Simpson, the co-founder of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS conceded that he opposed Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy and that his negative opinions of the politician may have “entered” into his “thinking.”

Fusion GPS compiled the infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier accusing Trump and his presidential campaign of ties with Russia.

In August 22 testimony released last week and reviewed in full by Breitbart News, Simpson made the following admission:

I think it’s safe to say that, you know, at some point probably early in 2016 I had reached a conclusion about Donald Trump as a businessman and his character and I was opposed to Donald Trump. I’m not going to pretend that that wouldn’t have entered into my thinking.

You know, again, I was a journalist my whole life. So we were, you know, trained not to take sides and practiced in not taking sides. So most of what I do as a research person is we try to avoid getting into situations where one’s etiology or political views would cloud your work because it’s a known hazard, but, you know, I reached an opinion about Donald Trump and his suitability to be president of the United States and I was concerned about whether he was the best person for the job.
