Fusion GPS founder: Trump campaign source backed up claims in dossier
Posted by Staff
The Hill:

A founder of the opposition research firm that compiled the controversial dossier on President Trump told Senate investigators in August that the FBI had “other intelligence” backing up claims in the dossier and that law enforcement officials had already been investigating the president’s team before the dossier was completed.

In more than 300 pages of testimony released unilaterally on Tuesday by the Senate Judiciary Committee’s top Democrat, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson told investigators that the former spy who compiled the dossier told him that the FBI had an informant in the Trump campaign. 

But a source close to Fusion GPS told The Hill on Tuesday that Simpson misspoke, mischaracterizing a tip that an Australian diplomat gave the bureau related to Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos.
