Opinion in Brief
Gary Bauer: “Donald Trump Jr., Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort are testifying this week to various congressional committees investigating allegations of Russian influence in last year’s presidential election. These are very high-risk, high-profile events in the Left’s efforts to nullify the election results. One person who did not lose sleep last night is Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS, the left-wing opposition research company that produced the now infamous Trump/Russia dossier. Simpson was subpoenaed by the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify Wednesday. But his attorney informed committee leaders that Simpson would be ‘asserting his Fifth Amendment rights,’ meaning he won’t answer questions because he might incriminate himself. This is exactly what Obama administration officials and Clinton campaign operatives did repeatedly. And they got away with it. … It is … telling that big media, which has been able to learn every jot and tittle of phone conversations that appear to discredit Trump or his appointees, has not chosen to lay out … the highly suspicious circumstances surrounding Fusion GPS.”
