Glenn Simpson, whose investigative firm Fusion GPS produced the unverified Democrat-financed dossier, bemoaned the fact he could not persuade The New York Times to run a Trump-Russia conspiracy story days before the Nov. 8, 2016, election.

Fusion had lobbied the Times by having dossier author and British ex-spy Christopher Steele personally brief its reporter and other selected media outlets during two sessions.

Mr. Steele argued there was an “extensive” conspiracy between the Donald Trump campaign and the Kremlin to hack Democratic Party computers whose emails were stolen by Russia and released by WikiLeaks.

But the Times ended up reporting the opposite of what Mr. Simpson wanted in an Oct. 31 story as Mr. Trump and Hillary Clinton approached the last week of campaigning.

Disclosing that the FBI was conducting a counterintelligence investigation into any elicit Russia-Trump ties, The New York Times story summed up its findings: “Law enforcement officials say that none of the investigations so far have found any conclusive or direct link between Mr. Trump and the Russian government.

    This guy is really showing us just what a dirt bag he is. Still he thinks that there was something between Trump and Russia. He can’t believe that Trump is a man of his word. He thinks that hillary is as clean as the driven snow. What a fool he is.!!!

    This has to be the biggest if not the dirtiest joke ever played upon the government of the United States by a foreign power using a foreign agent from another country to wreck havoc within the two political parties in the United States to include the thoughts and minds of the American people…Christopher Steele was a dupe of the Russians…They played Christopher Steele to the hilt…and he bought into this ploy as formulated by Russia’s own counter intelligence agencies…It appears Steele bought into their spin 150%…when he should have known he was being played by these Russian agencies all along…But that didn’t matter to Steele because “fake” news produced by the Russian’s would be a hugh windfall for Steele…meaning lots of money and future speaking engagements with which to make more monies…Plus no one could directly attack Steele for his “dossier” since it was compiled by and from Russian sources…He only wrote what they told him about Donald Trump…like Russian prostitutes peeing on Trump while laying in a bed that Barack Obama had once slept in…or spoon feeding Donald Trump his own “poop”…Which the FBI…the CIA…and the NSA jumped on as being the gospel “sent from Russia with love”…The liberal MSM were now seen dancing in the streets…Christopher Steel was seen laughing all the way to the bank as he deposited his millions…The Russian’s were elated and laughing as well…patting themselves on the back for finally being able to pull the biggest con game and spin ever on the United States and it’s citizenry…The Russian’s pulled the biggest con game of the century dividing America’s two political parties and the American people further apart than they ever have been…The Russian’s didn’t care one way or another about Donald Trump…he was their tool to undermine the thoughts and minds of the American people along with our government and the “deep” state…The Russian’s won “bigly” in all of this…The stupidity of it all is the liberal MSM became complicit in the spreading of this disinformation and lies know as the Trump “dossier”… thus allowing the liberal media to further show their total disrespect for a sitting president and or to call for the impeachment of Donald Trump over a “nothing” burger (dossier)…which was the product of Russian Counter Intelligence.

    We know that Hillary and the DNC paid for the Fake Dossier. It’s past due time for Jeff Sessions to get off his butt and indict and prosecute those criminals.

    Old non news. GPS has been exposed as a “fake news” generator. Let’s move on to the real story. Who in the FBI decided to take a fake story and make it their reason to even start the Russian collusion investigation? Could it have been due to collusion between James Comey, The DNC, Hillary Clintons campaign AND Robert Mueller??? Now if Jeff Sessions can only decide what to do about that.
