Somebodys already been killed because of Trump dossier, Fusion GPS rep revealed



An attorney for the co-founder of opposition research firm Fusion GPS revealed during a closed-door interview this summer with congressional investigators that 'somebody's already been killed

"as a result of the publication of the anti-Trump dossier."

The statement was contained in a 312-page transcript of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson's August interview with committee investigators, released "unilaterally Tuesday by Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif."

The release itself provoked controversy, with an aide to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, calling it confounding "for Feinstein to drop the transcript in the middle of an ongoing investigation."

Among the many revelations in the document, though, is the claim from Simpson's attorney that someone died because the dossier -- which was commissioned by Fusion GPS -- was publicly released.

"He wants to be very careful to protect his sources," attorney Josh Levy said during the Aug. 22 Senate Judiciary Committee interview of his client. "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."

Glenn Simpson's attorney said someone has been killed over the Trump dossier's release.

Levy didn't elaborate on who was killed. The website BuzzFeed first published the dossier online last January, "airing its unverified allegations about President Trump's connections with Russia."
