Media Hypes Fusion GPS Founders as Victims

It’s a little like the proverbial child killing its parents and throwing itself on the mercy of the court because he's now an orphan, but, with the wheels of Barr-Durham-Horowitz justice inexorably turning on them, there are Fusion GPS founders, Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch, on a media book tour claiming they are the victims of right-wing vengeance for their role in orchestrating a criminal fraud upon the FISA court and a coup against a sitting president of the United States.

"They're the ones that went to foreigners, they took money from the Democrats and went to Ukrainians and Russians to dig up dirt on Trump," he said. "These guys are a complete joke, they're a racketeering operation and they need to be shut down -- very dangerous for democracy."
