Trump 'unlikely' to give interview to Russian Federation collusion investigators

Christopher Steele Christopher Steele

Trump attacked Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, earlier this week after she released the transcript of a committee interview with the co-founder of the research firm behind a controversial dossier containing allegations of ties between Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

Despite the president's claim, Smith maintains that he and Buzzfeed "strongly believed that publishing the disputed document whose existence we and others were reporting was in the public interest". "My name was included only because of my proximity to the president".

Ironically, Feinstein's recent moves against President Trump might be what gets her through what was already looking like a challenging primary race. "This is not the first time Trump's personal lawyer has attacked the free press, and we look forward to defending our First Amendment rights in court".

Once the Dems were footing the bill, Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele, a former officer with British intel service M16 to check into ties between the Kremlin, Trump, and his associates.

The lawyer Michael Cohen, filed the lawsuit in NY state on Tuesday, almost a year after BuzzFeed published the dossier commissioned by political opposition research firm Fusion GPS.

"I can't think of a law it violates", said Solomon Wisenberg, former deputy independent counsel for the Whitewater investigation.

Simpson said after Steele produced that first report on June 20, 2016, he was concerned that what he found represented a national security threat and felt obligated to tell someone in government.

The weather service in Huntsville said a light glaze of ice and up to a half inch of snow will be possible through this evening. A powerful cold front is bringing below freezing temperatures as it sweeps through eastern Iowa and western IL .

Trump frequently rails against the Russian Federation investigation, of which he's a subject of scrutiny.

The dossier, which contains a number of unsubstantiated allegations against President Trump, has generated substantial controversy across the political landscape. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., acknowledged he had received a copy but said "no further full committee activity is planned at this time".

Mr Trump has withheld his tax returns from public scrutiny in the U.S. but because the situation is more open in Britain, it enabled investigators to examine more close his business deals. The firm commissioned the dossier, which was initially paid for by a conservative website and then later by Democrats, including Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

The document has become a focus of Republican-led investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Speaking aboard Air Force One in July, Trump used the phrase "witch hunt" several times, declaring ongoing questions about Russian Federation to be a politically motivated "witch hunt" overplayed by the press.

Attached to the referral request concerning Steele was "a classified memorandum related to certain communications between Christopher Steele and multiple US news outlets regarding the so-called "Trump dossier" that Mr. Steele compiled on behalf of Fusion GPS for the Clinton Campaign and the Democratic National Committee and also provided to the Federal Bureau of Investigation".
