Glenn Simpson, the man behind the fake Trump dossier, has “cancelled” his testimony before congress. While the testimony was voluntary there is now speculation over whether or not the committee will seek legal action to force him to appear.
The actual author of the dossier, Christopher Steele, was paid by Fusion GPS (Simpson) and then later by Clinton supporters to compile the information for opposition purposes. Steele, is a former MI-6 intelligence officer.
Among the many things composed of for the dossier was Russian officials supposedly tried to influence President Donald Trump by attempting blackmail with sex tapes and to even bribe him with business deals, all of which we know to be FALSE.
It should be noted, as well, that most mainstream media outlets ONLY reported on the unsubstantiated dossier itself, leaving out rather key and specific details. Something of which we’ve been seeing reveals around when it comes to the likes of these sources of news.

On Wednesday, the committee had announced a July 19 hearing that included Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of the political and corporate intelligence firm Fusion GPS, as a witness.
This request raised the expectation that Simpson would provide details about the dossier, which was said to have been collected during last year’s presidential campaign.
Most major media outlets only reported on the existence of the unsubstantiated dossier — leaving out specific details — after the chiefs of America’s intelligence agencies in January presented then-President-elect Trump with a summary of the dossier.
