Fusion GPS founder was upset over what?

Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson was in front of the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday.

Fox News first reported similar revelations from Simpson’s seven-hour, closed-door meeting.

As part of the dossier project, which was funded by the Clinton campaign and DNC, Simpson and the dossier’s author, Christopher Steele, briefed numerous Beltway reporters about allegations in the document.

Steele has revealed in court papers in London, where he is being sued, that he was directed by Fusion to brief reporters at The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, Yahoo! News and The New Yorker in September….
