Footnote in Grassley’s Letter Suggests Information From Fusion GPS May Have Been Passed to Dianne Feinstein, Senate Judiciary Dems
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a scathing letter to Minority member Senator Coons accusing Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson of giving “extremely misleading” statements during a 2017 Senate testimony.
Grassley also accused Glenn Simpson of ‘outright lying’ during his Senate testimony.
In a footnote at the bottom of the letter, Grassley says it is a possibility that Feinstein’s former staffer, Daniel Jones fed Fusion’s information to the Minority as a part of his ongoing campaign.
Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, Senator Dianne Feinstein
Chairman Grassley said in his letter Glenn Simpson falsely claimed under oath that after the 2016 election he was no longer digging up dirt on Trump for a client.
Glenn Simpson specifically said in his Senate testimony he had “no client after the election.”
“Contrary to Mr. Simpson’s denial in the staff interview, according to the FBI and others, Fusion actually did continue Trump dossier work for a new client after the election,” Grassley said.
Grassley then turned his attention to statements made by Dianne Feinstein’s former Senate Intel staffer, Daniel Jones, to the FBI in March of 2017 about his work for Fusion GPS to investigate ‘Trump-Russia.’
The Federalist first reported in February a former staffer for Dem Senator Dianne Feinstein, Daniel Jones was working with Fusion GPS.
A group of about 7-10 wealthy donors from California (Silicon Valley) and New York spent $50 million to fund a Trump-Russia investigation conducted by none other than Christopher Steele, Fusion GPS and a former staffer for Dem Senator Dianne Feinstein named Daniel Jones.
Grassley put an interesting footnote at the bottom of his letter implying Daniel Jones may have fed Fusion’s information to the Minority [Ranking member Dianne Feinstein and other Minority Democrat members] as part of his ongoing campaign.
Feinstein is corrupt. In January she unilaterally released Glenn Simpson’s testimony transcript to the public then blamed it on a bad cold.
Grassley wants answers on Daniel Jones:
That information detailed a March 2017 meeting between Daniel Jones and the
FBI. Mr. Jones stated that he was leading a research and investigatory advisory organization
called the Penn Quarter Group, which “had secured the services Steele, his associate [redacted],
and Fusion GPS to continue exposing Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election.”7
Mr. Jones further told the FBI that the Penn Quarter Group “was being funded by 7 to 10
wealthy donors located primarily in New York and California, who provided approximately $50
The report noted that Mr. Jones stated he planned to push the information he obtained
from Fusion and Steele to policymakers on Capitol Hill,9
the press, and the FBI.10 As with
statements to the Committee, statements to the FBI, like Mr. Jones’, are subject to 18 U.S.C. §
1001. So, despite the fact Mr. Simpson said he had no client after the election, he in fact did, and
that client revealed himself to the FBI.

Footnote 9 is….interesting: “I do not know if, during the course of our investigation, Mr. Jones has fed Fusion’s information to the Minority as part of his ongoing campaign.” https://t.co/p0gbx4bKXT
