    Fusion GPS’ Glenn Simpson Dined With Russian Lawyer Before & After Her Meeting at Trump Tower

    Transcripts released Wednesday by the Senate Judiciary Committee say that Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of Fusion GPS, had dinner with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya both the day before and the day after she met with Donald Trump, Jr. at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016.

    Simpson had business dealings with Veselnitskaya, and that included a court hearing in New York on June 9, 2016. But Simpson said he did not know about the June 9, 2016 meeting at Trump Tower. He said the subject never came up at either of the dinners he had with Veselnitskaya on June 8 or 10, 2016; and he was “stunned” to learn about it later in The New York Times.

    Veselnitskaya, however, told the committee that “no,” she did not have contact with Glenn Simpson on June 8, 9, or 10, 2016. In written responses to questions from the committee, she disputed a news report saying she met with Simpson before and after the Trump Tower meeting.

    Simpson is not a “dem”.

    And this isn’t new information. Their respective firms were working on a case together.

    “No,” Simpson said. "I mean, I can tell you what I knew. I knew she was coming in, I guess on the 8th. I don't have a clear recollection of the dinner, but I know -- I believe we had a dinner. The problem is I had more than one. So I don't have a clear recollection of it.

    “Anyway, I saw her the next day in court at this hearing and I'm sure we exchanged greetings, but, as I say, she speaks Russian and I speak English. I think she was with Anatoli and she left afterwards. I know she didn't tell me any other plans she had.”

    “So you had dinner the 8th, saw her in court on the 9th; is that correct?”

    "Yes,” Simpson replied.

    “And dinner again on the 10th?”

    “In D.C.,” Simpson confirmed.

    “Did you see her any other time?”

    “Not that I recall,” Simpson said.

    “Did Fusion play any role assisting Ms. Veselnitskaya during that trip?”

    “ Not that I recall,” Simpson said.

    “It has widely been reported Ms. Veselnitskaya and Mr. Akhmetshin and others met with Donald Trump, Junior, Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner on June 9th, 2016. Were you aware of this meeting beforehand?” the lawyer asked.


    “It didn't come up at the dinner the night before?”

    “No,” Simpson repeated.

    “When did you first become aware of the meeting?”

    “Around the time it broke in the New York Times. I was stunned,” Simpson replied.

    “Is it correct that that means it wasn't discussed at the dinner on the 10th?”

    “No, but, again, you know, the dinner on the 10th was, I was at one end of the table talking to a woman about her biography on Simon Bolivar and she was at the other end with Rinat and she doesn't really speak much English. So, you know, fortunately I was not going to do a lot of entertaining,” Simpson said.
    They weren’t one on one dinners or formal meetings. Seems like she is saying no because she doesn’t remember him.

    So lets see...

    In one meeting, you have meeting out in public at a restaurant.

    the other you have a meeting with the "President's" son at Trump Tower to talk about how to hurt the Clinton campaign. Which everyone connected to the meeting denied every aspect of that meeting. In fact, Dumb jr lied to inspectors about the meeting.

    Which is worse?

    In my mind
    This definitely means that Trump shits gold and is kind to old ladies, children, and kittens.

    Actually, I think this means that the right wing, pro Turmp opinion sites are willing to throw anything out there hoping that by an overload of information, most of it meaningless, Trump fans will work themselves into a lather trying to defend their beloved leaders.
