The wheels are coming off the left’s Russia narrative about Trump. One of the leaders of the firm behind the anti-Trump dossier basically shopped the claims made to members of the press. That sounds an awful lot like collusion, doesn’t it?

Fusion GPS told media of Trump-Russia claims, but did not verify dossier: source
The co-founder of the firm behind the anti-Trump ‘dossier’ told House investigators Tuesday that he personally discussed with members of the media allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, though he did not speak to the sources behind the claims, a source told Fox News.
According to a source familiar with the matter, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson refused to answer key questions during his seven-hour, closed-door appearance before the House Intelligence Committee. The source said he would not answer questions on his relationship with specific journalists or ties to the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign, which financed the anti-Trump research via the law firm Perkins Coie.
But the source said Simpson acknowledged he did not personally look into certain aspects of the dossier — which was authored by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and contained salacious allegations about the Trump team’s ties to Russia.
Simpson told investigators he never spoke to the underlying sources of the document, never traveled to Russia and did not verify the dossier beyond comparing the claims to “open source” media reporting.
What do Democrats do when it’s finally proven that this was all a gigantic ruse? They’ve wasted a year talking about it!
