The testimony covers the Trump dossier memo, the Buzzfeed reportage leak, and a number of spectacular claims from Simpson himself. The Fusion GPS founder asserts, via ex-spy Christopher Steele, that the FBI had an agent within the Trump campaign that was feeding the agency information.

As the Washington Post reported:

The ex-British spy who authored a dossier of allegations against then-presidential candidate Donald Trump was told the FBI had someone inside Trump’s network providing agents with information, according to a newly-released transcript of a congressional interview.

Glenn R. Simpson, founder of research firm Fusion GPS, spoke to investigators with the Senate Judiciary Committee for 10 hours in August. As the partisan fight over Russian interference in the 2016 election has intensified, Simpson has urged that his testimony be released, and a copy of the transcript was made public Tuesday.

It was released by the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California. That decision marks the most serious break yet in the once cooperative relationship she has had with the Republican chairman of the committee, Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa).

The reaction on social media was explosive:

According to the testimony, a source was killed over the Trump dossier:

Alabama player denies yelling ‘F— Trump!’ while entering football stadium – listen for yourself

This raises the question of why Sen. Dianne Feinstein published this excerpt, rather than redacting it.

Fusion GPS was hired by the Hillary Clinton campaign to conduct opposition research on Donald Trump. The discredited “Trump dossier,” which made a number of salacious and unverified claims about Donald Trump, was shopped around the mainstream media before being published by Buzzfeed News.

The Trump dossier became the basis of months of Russian collusion speculation, which has become an obsession of the mainstream media and has cost taxpayers millions of dollars.
