The newly-released transcript of a closed-door hearing with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson is already revealing bombshell information.
According to Josh Levy, an attorney Simpson, “somebody’s already been killed” over the so-called Trump dossier, authored by former British spy Christopher Steele.
Levy made the statement during a closed-door, 10-hour hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Aug. 22, 2017.
“He wants to be very careful to protect his sources,” Levy said at the time. “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.”
The Washington Examiner reported:
Neither Levy nor Simpson elaborated on who was killed. However, it has been reported that Oleg Erovinkin, a former general in the KGB and its successor FSB, helped Steele compile the dossier. He was found dead in his car in Moscow in December 2016, and no cause of death has yet been confirmed.
Erovinkin was an aide to Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin, who was repeatedly named in the dossier. In the dossier, Steele said he has a source close to Sechin.
As DML News reported, Simpson’s testimony was made public by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) who made a unilateral decision to upload them to her web page on Tuesday afternoon, despite Chairman Chuck Grassley’s (R-Iowa) objections.
Simpson and Democrats wanted to release the testimony publicly, however Grassley wanted Simpson’s statements to be given to the public during live testimony.
Fusion GPS was behind the Steele dossier, which contained contained salacious and mostly unconfirmed claims regarding President Donald J. Trump’s ties to Russia.
