Trump dossier firm claps back at GOP’s ‘fake investigations’

The founders of the D.C. research firm attacked by some Republicans for the now-infamous “Steele dossier” related to the Trump-Russia investigation penned an Op-Ed Tuesday defending their work and calling for the full release of their testimony to the public.

“We are happy to correct the record. In fact, we already have,” wrote Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch in a New York Times pieced titled, “The Republicans’ Fake Investigations.”

Simpson and Fritsch are among the founders of Fusion GPS, which compiled a collection of intelligence reports on Donald Trump’s ties to Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign. Written by fomer British spy Christopher Steele, some Republicans blame the dossier for sparking the probe into Trump’s alleged links to Russia.

“Republicans have refused to release full transcripts of our firm’s testimony, even as they selectively leak details to media outlets on the far right. It’s time to share what our company told investigators,” wrote Simpson and Fritsch, whose firm testified to Congress for 21 hours on the dossier’s contents.

“We’re extremely proud of our work to highlight Mr. Trump’s Russia ties. To have done so is our right under the First Amendment,” they wrote.
