The Federalist's Bre Payton reports:
In a letter to Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut), Grassley stated that Simpson told committee staff in 2017 that he stopped probing now-President Trump and his associates’ connections to Russian officials after the 2016 presidential election because he “had no client after the election.”
Here’s what committee staff asked Simpson and what the Fusion GPS founder had to say in return last August:
When the Committee staff interviewed Glenn Simpson in August of 2017, Majority staff asked him: ‘So you didn’t do any work on the Trump matter after the election date, that was the end of your work?’ Mr. Simpson answered: ‘I had no client after the election.’ As we now know, that was extremely misleading, if not an outright lie.

As The Federalist reported back in April, a former staffer for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California), Daniel Jones, told the FBI he had retained Fusion GPS’s services to “continue exposing Russian interference” after the election.
Sloppy reporting by NPR recently insinuated that Donald Trump Jr. mislead Congress. (RELATED: Media Falsely Accuses Don Jr.) While an individual did mislead Intelligence Committee staff, they happen to come from the other side of the aisle.
