Feinstein blames 'bad cold' for handling of Fusion GPS transcript

Emmett Howard | 13 January, 2018, 04:00

By the time the FBI sat down in September 2016 for a full interview with the ex-British spy who had been researching Donald Trump's Russian Federation connections, the bureau had already received information raising concerns about possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, according to a transcript made public Tuesday.

Also Wednesday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, and FBI Director Christopher Wray were on Capitol Hill to speak to Warner and the Republican chairman of the Senate intelligence panel, North Carolina Sen. Feinstein sought to push back against that perception and to bolster the FBI's credibility.

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein released the transcript.

Trump and others believe the controversial dossier triggered the FBI's investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election.

But in his closed-door session, Mr Simpson told senators: "He [former British spy Christopher Steele] thought from his perspective there was an issue - a security issue about whether a presidential candidate was being blackmailed".

One of the key findings is that the dossier was handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2016 by Christopher Steele, the former British spy who created it, because he was anxious about "whether a political candidate was being blackmailed", according to the newly released transcript.

Meanwhile, Claypool said that Cohen can "prevail" in at least one his cases, considering BuzzFeed knew the dossier contained unverified information when it made a decision to publish the document.

By the time Steele sat down with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in September, an Australian diplomat had passed to us officials details of his conversation with Papadopoulos, who seemed to know that the Russians possessed hacked Democratic emails.

Pet owners who are interested in raw meat-based diets should talk to a professional rather than feeding their pets uncooked meat. By feeding this diet to pets, owners are not only risking the health of the animals but also their own health.

Mr Trump has always dismissed the claims of the dossier as nothing more than a politically motivated smear. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) a criminal investigation against Steele for lying to the FBI.

Simpson, the Fusion GPS founder, was interviewed by the Judiciary Committee for 10 hours in August.

One passage in particular drew heavy attention - where Simpson's lawyer claimed someone had been killed over the dossier's publication.

Congressional investigators have zeroed in on dossier in recent months, to find out whether the FBI used it as part of the justification to launch their investigation, as well to obtain a surveillance warrant on another Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page.

Fusion GPS has so far not offered any public comment about Cohen's suit.

As the Russian investigation continues to heat up, Donald Trump and the White House are not happy about it. Look, they argued, the Donald Trump investigation was completely justified because the infamous "dossier", according to Simpson, had been corroborated by the FBI.

"The Republicans on that committee didn't consult with her with respect to their referral to the Department of Justice", Murphy said, referring to Grassley and Sen.
