According to a new report from Fox News Fusion GPS, Co-Founder Glenn Simpson met with Russian Lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya before and after Trump Jr. meeting:
The co-founder of Fusion GPS, the firm behind the unverified Trump dossier, met with a Russian lawyer before and after a key meeting she had last year with Trump’s son, Fox News has learned. The contacts shed new light on how closely tied the firm was to Russian interests, at a time when it was financing research to discredit then-candidate Donald Trump.
The opposition research firm has faced renewed scrutiny after litigation revealed that the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid for that research. Congressional Republicans have since questioned whether that politically financed research contributed to the FBI’s investigation of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – making Fusion’s 2016 contacts with Russian interests all the more relevant.
The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya occurred during a critical period. At that time, Fox News has learned that bank records show Fusion GPS was paid by a law firm for work on behalf of a Kremlin-linked oligarch while paying a former British spy Christopher Steele to dig up dirt on Trump through his Russian contacts.
But hours before the Trump Tower meeting on June 9, 2016, Fusion co-founder and ex-Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson was with Veselnitskaya in a Manhattan federal courtroom, a confidential source told Fox News. Court records reviewed by Fox News, email correspondence and published reports corroborate the pair’s presence together. The source told Fox News they also were together after the Trump Tower meeting.
As the Fox report states later on in the article this raises a ton of questions. According to the MSM, this Russian Lawyer was a Russian agent of Putin. The Mainstream Media and Left have tried to point to this as proof of collusion. So why was it that Glenn Simpson was meeting with this Russian Agent? Although all the information is not out yet we must begin to look deeper into this. We have reported since the meeting came to light that there was a lot of unanswered questions surrounding it.
This smells a lot like a deep state set up. This lawyer has more ties to the Democrats and the deep state than the Trump administration.
