The Facts of Life, thanks to Dianne Feinstein

Here it is, the Fusion GPS/Glenn Simpson transcript.

His testimony begins on page 11, after everyone at the hearing introduces him- and herselves– and after the basic rules are laid out by Grassley’s deputy counsel. Which is not uninteresting to me — for one thing, he specifies that Simpson isn’t to be put under oath (although he still tells Simpson that lying before members of the Senate is a crime) and that the transcript isn’t classified, although Simpson can (presumably to protect vulnerable sources) ask for such limited classification.

Treat it like reading a deposition. Once you get the rhythm of them, reading depositions is like reading a dramatic script.

I haven’t read it yet — just got it right this minute — but will be putting aside Trollope for this.
