Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm whose Democrat-financed Russia dossier fueled an FBI investigation into Donald Trump, pitched other stories about the Republican presidential candidate to Washington reporters, including an attempt to tie him to a convicted pedophile who was once buddies with former President Bill Clinton.
Journalist sources told The Washington Times that Fusion founder Glenn Simpson pushed the idea of a close relationship between Mr. Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, who pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting sex from an underage girl.
The Trump-Epstein link appears purely social, far short of Mr. Clintons 20-plus plane rides on Epsteins Lolita Express private jet around the globe in the early 2000s.
Ken Silverstein, the reporter who ultimately wrote an Epstein-Trump report, confirmed to The Times that Fusion had sourced the story. Mr. Silverstein, founder and editor of WashingtonBabylon.com who wrote the story for Vice.com, defended Mr. Simpson as a solid source of information that must first be confirmed.
For years, Fusion GPS has been an influential hidden hand in Washington, with entree into the citys most powerful news bureaus.
Behind the scenes, the private intelligence firm run by former Wall Street Journal reporters was particularly active last year working to defeat Mr. Trump. Fusion leader Mr. Simpson, who railed against sleazy opposition research as a reporter, harbored a strong desire to bring down the builder of hotels with, well, opposition research.
Fusion representatives met with New York Times reporters during the Democratic National Convention in July 2016.
Ironically, it appears The Times was the first to out Fusion on Jan. 11 as the source of the scandalous dossier that BuzzFeed posted the previous day. BuzzFeed did the posting without identifying Fusion or dossier writer Christopher Steele, a former British spy.

The Left always accuses their opponents of what they are doing themselves.
I remember that.
Glen Simpson should go into hiding and change his name.
Passes all around for Clinton.
Bill Clinton was an island sponsor and visited more than twice.
Lets Wrap This FReepathon Up, Folks!
Truly amazing how this whole narrative stitches together.....
Hillary diddled underaged girls too.
Any scandal from murder and incest... to prostitute urination and pedophilia can be cooked up. Don't be fooled by imposters. These Fusion GPS dossiers are high-quality, high-shock documents guaranteed to produce the desired effect (resignations, campaign exits, etc.).
Now frankly, aside from the wide array of scandals we offer for purchase, what clients most appreciate about us is our top drawer media connections. We are on a first-name basis with big-name media like CNN, New York Times, and NBC. In fact, former Wall Street Journal executives run Fusion GPS. Rest assured, we are connected to the most ruthless and dishonest reporters and commentators on the planet. Bottom line: whatever dossier scenario you choose is guaranteed to reach the public and have an impact.
Now as a Senator or Congressman, we fully understand that you have a reputation to protect. This is why we take pains to be discrete and hide our tracks. As a client, you are assured of complete anonymity, in part, through our global (and award-winning) money laundering network.
Epstein told the court he helped Bill Clinton organize the Clinton Foundation.
Another angle....Clinton went to Pedo Island frequently....but I say sex was not the reason.
Clinton was looking for offshore banks to stash hundreds of millions of dollars in secret accounts.
When L/E examined Epstein's books, they found Clinton and his buddy Doug Band listed with 23 phone numbers and email addies.
L/E recognizes multiple communications as evidence of money-laundering and tax evasion.
Well now, perhaps we can speculate a little.
Did Epstein own a bank domiciled on his private island that laundered money here and there to and from the Clinton foundation?
If not, he should have.
Bump for professionallly done brochure selling Fusion GPS.
A different take on Epstein being part of money laundering op.
Thanks, The Westerner. MAGA.
