Fusion GPS co-founder will invoke 'constitutional rights not to testify' - lawyers

Fusion GPS co-founder will invoke 'constitutional rights not to testify' - lawyers | 11 Oct 2018 | Lawyers for Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS, told the head of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday that his client will "invoke his constitutional rights not to testify," defying a GOP-issued subpoena seeking to compel him to give a closed-door deposition. The lawyers told Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) in an electronic letter that Simpson will not participate in the committee's inquiry because it "is not designed to discover the truth." Simpson, a former journalist who later co-founded Fusion GPS, hired former British spy Christopher Steele to help compile the dossier, which makes a series of salacious allegations about President Trump's possible ties to Russia.
