In representing Glenn Simpson, the CEO of Fusion GPS (the organization that commissioned the Christopher Steele dossier), Levy Firestone Muse partner Joshua A. Levy was featured on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show.
Mr. Levy’s comments after Mr. Simpson had already testified to three Senate intelligence committees were broadcast and discussed by Rachel Maddow on Wednesday, October 17:
In 2016, our clients, Glenn Simpson, and Fusion GPS, did their civic duty by providing credible information to the Justice Department that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election here. . . Since that time, the US intelligence community under this administration and the bipartisan Senate Select Committee agreed and found that Russia not only interfered with our 2016 presidential election, but that Vladimir Putin led an effort to help elect Donald J. Trump president.
This committee has shown no interest in the fact that Russia interfered in the 2016 election. Rather than do its duty, consistent with its traditional and constitutional role, the House Judiciary Committee has looked the other way at White House efforts to influence and interfere with the Justice Department’s investigation of this administration. . .
The Russians tried to elect Donald Trump president—it’s been proven. . . The big picture is that a foreign hostile power was trying to interfere in our democracy, in our presidential election.
