Glenn is the co-author of Dirty Little Secrets: The Persistence of Corruption in American Politics written with political scientist Larry Sabato and published in 1996.[4] A New York Times book review called the book's approach "fiercely bipartisan".
Simpson left journalism in part to earn more money. Explaining why he left journalism, he quipped: β€œWe don't use the word 'sold out.' We use the word 'cashed in.'”
From September 2015 to May 2016, Simpson was retained by a conservative newspaper, the Washington Free Beacon, to collect information on many of the Republican presidential candidates, including Donald Trump.

In April of 2016, the Democratic National Committee &the Hillary Clinton campaign's law firm, Perkins Coie, retained Simpson's company Fusion GPS.From April 2016 into early May, the Washington Free Beacon & the Clinton Campaign/DNC were independently both clients of Fusion GPS.🚩
In June 2016, Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele, a former MI6 agent, to obtain information on Trump. Steele used his "old contacts and farmed out other research to native Russian speakers who made phone calls on his behalf".

After November 2016, funding from the Democratic Party ceased, and Simpson reportedly spent his own money to fund further work on the dossier.
In 2017 during Congressional inquiries into Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, Simpson testified before the House Intelligence Committee that Roger Stone, Steve Bannon, and Ted Malloch, a "significant figure" in the Brexit campaign, had ties to each other.
On August 22, 2017, Simpson was questioned for 10 hours by the Senate Judiciary Committee in a closed-door meeting. The Committee did not release a transcript of the hearing. Simpson reportedly did not reveal the identities of his clients.
The transcript was unilaterally released by Senator Dianne Feinstein on January 9, 2018.

Feinstein was the author of the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban which expired in 2004. In 2013, she introduced a new assault weapons bill which failed to pass.
Feinstein was born Dianne Emiel Goldman[1] in San Francisco, to Betty (nΓ©e Rosenburg), a former model, and Leon Goldman, a surgeon.
Feinstein's paternal grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Poland. Her maternal grandparents, the Rosenburg family, were from Saint Petersburg, Russia.
While they were of German-Jewish ancestry,they practiced the Russian Orthodox (Christian) faith. The Christian faith was passed down to Feinstein's mother, who insisted on her transferal from a Jewish day school to a prestigious local Catholic school
She was given a high-profile speaking role on the opening night of the August Democratic National Convention, urging delegates to reject the Kennedy delegates' proposal to "open" the convention, thereby allowing delegates to ignore their states' popular vote.
