It’s being reported by Paul Sperry that Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson has written in his new book that he was hired in 2015 to investigate Trump AND that memos about their infamous phony Steele dossier made it all the way to Obama:
BREAKING: In new book "Crime in Progress," set for release next month, #Spygate archvillain Glenn Simpson reveals that he was first hired to investigate Trump in "the fall of 2015" and that memos from his now-discredited Steele dossier made their way directly "to President Obama" pic.twitter.com/inpB0swhkS

This is the first we’ve heard about these salacious and unproven rumors in the Steel dossier making it to Obama’s desk.
Now we don’t know when they made it to Obama or in what context, but he was clearly still president at the time and that might implicate that he was in on it – which would surprise no one.
According to the Examiner, the book is announced to come out in late November, just weeks after the FISA abuse report is supposed to be released from the IG:
Fusion GPS announced the November release date of a book on its 2016 investigation into Donald Trump’s ties to Russia, promising to shed new light on British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s dossier about the future president.
Random House, publisher of Crime in Progress: Inside the Steele Dossier and the Fusion GPS Investigation of Donald Trump, promised the book would illustrate “the never-before-told inside story of the high-stakes, four-year-long investigation into Donald Trump’s Russia ties — culminating in the Steele dossier, and sparking the Mueller report — from the founders of political opposition research company Fusion GPS.”
It sounds like Simpson and company are hoping to rehash the Steele dossier and try and convince people it’s true, among other things associated with the investigation.
