The Trump Dossier's Credibility Is Collapsing

Sandra Phillips | 13 January, 2018, 06:52

Simpson's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in August contradicted those claims.

Look, they argued, the Donald Trump investigation was completely justified because the infamous "dossier", according to Simpson, had been corroborated by the FBI.

The dossier is a compilation of memos written by Steele during the 2016 campaign that contained allegations of connections between Trump and Russian Federation, including that Trump had been compromised by the Kremlin. "Republicans should finally take control!"

Adds Trump: "Must have tough Primary!"

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, led by Charles Grassley, had declined to release Simpson's testimony, saying he had refused to testify at a public hearing and failed to answer questions or turn over records. The resulting, largely fictitious "dossier", was then used not only as fodder for the Obama administration's investigation into its political opponents but also to spread unsubstantiated rumors about Trump to the press. And as the top Democrat on the committee, she didn't need authorization from Grassley to release it.

Grassley's office slammed Feinstein for releasing the testimony, saying it came as the panel was still trying to interview other witnesses, including Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

"I think his Twitter account should be shut down, and he should listen to the experts who he is surrounded by who have really important information to share with him, rather than getting all of his information from one outlet that has a particular bias", the California Democrat said. That has angered Democrats, who say those probes are distractions from the Russian Federation investigations.

Simpson, a former journalist who co-founded Fusion GPS, denied strongly in the interview that the dossier, which contains some salacious allegations, was phony.

Feinstein also sits on the Senate intelligence committee, which is conducting its own investigation into the Russian interference and whether Trump's campaign was in any way involved.

"The president's expressed desire to see more immigrants from countries like Norway must be called out for what it is: an effort to set this country back generations by promoting a homogenous, white society", Feinstein said in a statement.

Investigators have also uncovered evidence of deep animosity against Trump by some of the Federal Bureau of Investigation officials assigned to the initial Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into the Trump campaign and on the subsequent special counsel.
