Simpson told investigators it was his understanding that the Federal Bureau of Investigation "believed Chris's information might be credible because they had other intelligence that indicated the same thing and one of those pieces of intelligence was a human source from inside the Trump organization".

"I would just like you to acknowledge that partisanship played a role".
Smith made this argument in the op-ed: "I haven't had a single person approach me to say, 'I wish I hadn't read the dossier, and wish I had less insight into the forces at play in America.' Do you feel that way?"
