Trump 'sex dossier' firm backed by conservative website

Trump 'sex dossier' firm backed by conservative website

"I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as part of our counterintelligence mission, is investigating the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election and that includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia's efforts".

"During the 2016 election cycle we retained Fusion GPS to provide research on multiple candidates in the Republican presidential primary, just as we retained other firms to assist in our research into Hillary Clinton", The Washington Free Beacon editor-in-chief Matthew Continetti and chairman Michael Goldfarb said in a written statement.

That definition - "coordination" - would seem to make the Democrats ripe for special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate, ex-Trump aides say.

The Associated Press has not confirmed the CNN report.

Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer handling the response to the Russian Federation investigation, said the president's tweets were "unrelated to the activities of the special counsel, with whom he continues to cooperate".

'There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out.

Continuing with his tweets, the president resurfaced his views on the controversial dossier about Trump and Russian Federation written by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele for Fusion GPS, a research strategy intelligence firm.

Democrats have downplayed the funding aspect of the dossier, which was funded by an unnamed "never Trump" Republican in the primary and then the Democrats through the general election, as they argue to content of the memo is more important.

Collins' suggestion on Sunday came amid further developments in the special counsel's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 US election, which coincides with the Senate investigation into meddling.

On Sunday, Trump went after Mueller's investigation again.

Why Is Kurt Angle Replacing Roman Reigns in WWE TLC Sunday?

Congress is also looking into allegations of collusion between Trump associates and Russian Federation.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., chairman of the House Oversight Committee, came to Mueller's defense and said that he doesn't agree with Republicans who are calling for Mueller to resign or stop his investigation.

The Washington Post was first to report news of the Clinton campaign and the DNC's involvement with Fusion GPS.

The committee is probing the 2016 dossier, which was compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele after being contracted by Washington firm Fusion GPS.

"These investigations were initiated on a partisan basis, and will shed no light on Russia's interference in the 2016 election, but then again they are not meant to do so", Representative Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday in a statement.

Several of the individuals involved in the uranium scandal are central to the Russian Federation investigation, including former FBI Director James Comey, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and special counsel for the Russian Federation investigation Robert Mueller.

Collins, who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said the committee is trying to determine whether there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

The House Intelligence Committee announced Saturday that Fusion GPS, the firm behind the anti-Trump files, has agreed to reveal its financial records.

Democrats have argued that these investigations are meant to distract from the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

In June, Nunes stepped aside from involvement in the Russian Federation probe, after the House Ethics Committee launched an investigation into his alleged mishandling of classified information.
