Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of Fusion GPS which was the firm behind the “Trump Dossier”, has decided to plead the fifth in response to a subpoena.
Chuck Grassley, committee chairman, and ranking member Dianne Feinstein, have confirmed that he was subpoenaed and suppose to appear before the committee this coming week as part of the investigation.
“Simpson’s attorney has asserted that his client will invoke his Fifth Amendment rights in response to the subpoena,” Grassley and Feinstein said.
“Fusion GPS learned about this meeting from news reports and had no prior knowledge of it. Any claim that Fusion GPS arranged or facilitated this meeting in any way is absolutely false,” the company said in a statement.
