Mary Jacoby is the wife of Glenn Simpson –cofounder of Fusion GPS and who helped write the Trump-Russia dossier.
Mary’s husband along with former MI6 agent Christopher Steele, created the dossier which claimed unproven, salacious allegations about President Donald Trump and Russian prostitutes. That same dossier claims of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. The dossier ultimately sparked the FBI investigation now supervised by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Simpson has a long history of investigating corruption and influence in and around Russia. He began his career as a reporter for the Wall Street Journal but left journalism for private investigations work.
Last year, Simpson was interviewed for hours by the Senate Judiciary Committee and a transcript of the interview was released on Tuesday by the committee’s top Democrat, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California –in an effort to end misinformation circulating about the transcript.
That misinformation may also be linked to Glenn’s wife Mary Jacoby who was brought into the messy situation after she bragged on social media her husband was behind ‘Russiagate.’
According to an article from by Lee Smith of Tablet magazine, Jacoby and her husband allegedly co-wrote a series of stories for The Wall Street Journal back in the day and the Trump dossier is said to be based on those stories instead of actual intelligence.
Mary Jacoby also a former reporter and freelance writer, is currently listed as a consulting editor at Law Business Research. According to her LinkedIn, she was previously a founder/editor at Main Justice.
Jacoby attended the University of Notre Dame where she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree on American Studied and German. The Little Rock, Arkansas native currently resides in the Washington D.C. area. She and her husband are the proud parents of at least one son.
