usion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, whose firm commissioned a controversial dossier alleging secret ties between President Donald Trump and the Kremlin, told congressional investigators last summer that the FBI found the dossier credible because an undisclosed “human source” associated with Trump had offered the bureau corroborating information.
In a 312-page transcript of Simpson’s August 2017 interview with the Senate Judiciary Committee, Simpson’s attorney also said it was dangerous to discuss the dossier’s sources because its public release last year had already led to murder.
“Somebody’s already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier and no harm should come to anybody related to this honest work,” said the lawyer, Joshua Levy.
The transcript was released unexpectedly Tuesday by the panel’s top Democrat, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, angering the committee’s Republican chairman, Sen. Charles Grassley.
A transcript unexpectedly released by Sen. Dianne Feinstein also includes the claim that a person has “already been killed” as a result of the controversial Trump-Russia dossier.
