WASHINGTON D.C. — Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS, the company that assembled the so-called Steele dossier containing opposition research alleging ties between President Trump and Russia, has reached an agreement with the House Intelligence Committee to provide voluntary, limited testimony next week.

The dossier was written primarily by former British spy Christopher Steele and paid for by Fusion GPS.

According to Simpson's lawyer Josh Levy, the deal lets his client answer questions "he chooses to answer," a report by Bloomberg said.

Simpson and committee Republicans have been engaged in a legal argument over whether Fusion GPS can be forced to turn over its bank records to show who paid Fusion for the research and who received payments from the firm.

It already has been reported that a law firm acting on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee took over payments for some of the dossier's research from prior anti-Trump Republicans.

The committee's chairman, Devin Nunes of California, wants to focus the investigation on the origins of the dossier, while Democrats want to determine whether the substance of the allegations in the dossier are credible.

Republicans are particularly interested in whether federal law enforcement agencies used the dossier to obtain search warrants or surveillance orders, according to Bloomberg.

Levy says that making Simpson testify about the identities of the company's clients would force him to violate his legal obligations of confidentiality. He also argues that forcing such revelations would violate the First Amendment by deterring people running for office from conducting opposition research on their political opponents.
