    About That Russian Dossier

    Fusion GPS Founder Refuses To Identify Dossier Clients In Marathon Senate Session


    In a marathon interview with the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, the co-founder of Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the uncorroborated anti-Trump dossier, refused to identify the political clients that commissioned the salacious document.

    Fusion GPS also stands behind the dossier, a lawyer for the firm said at the end of a 10-hour interview given by co-founder Glenn Simpson.

    “Mr. Simpson told Congress the truth and cleared the record on many matters of interest to congressional investigators. He also kept the identities of Fusion GPS’ clients confidential,” Josh Levy, Simpson’s attorney, told The Daily Caller in a statement.

    Simpson appeared for the interview after weeks of negotiations between his attorneys and the committee, which is one of three congressional panels investigation potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Be interesting to see if there is any legal, constitutional reason he should be forced to reveal who his client is. I can't think of any. There's no crime being investigated, so he's certainly not impeding an investigation of a crime.
    There are only two possibilities; one is that we are alone in the universe, the other is that we are not.
    Both are terrifying.

    Shouldn't really matter, should it? You shouldn't have a "need" to hide to be able to enjoy the fourth amendment.
