Russia Investigation: Republicans Leaking Info on Trump Dossier, Attorney Says

Russia Investigation: Republicans Leaking Info on Trump Dossier, Attorney Says

President Donald Trump's frustration at the investigations into his campaign's ties with Russian Federation boiled over Sunday, as he sought to shift the focus to a litany of accusations against his 2016 rival, Hillary Clinton, a day before the special counsel inquiry will reportedly produce its first indictment in the case.

He said on Twitter Sunday that the "facts are pouring out" about links to Russian Federation by his former presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton.

That definition - "coordination" - would seem to make the Democrats ripe for special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate, ex-Trump aides say. Elias served as Podesta's attorney and was with him during his interview with the committee, multiple sources told CNN.

The dossier forms part of their investigation into allegations that members of Trump's team colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

"There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton", Trump alleged, "and now the facts are pouring out". The dossier or its contents were spread around Washington by Mr. Steele and his employer, Fusion GPS, which got the money from the Clinton campaign and the DNC.

Last week Trump labeled the deal, which gave Russia 20 per cent of the U.S.'s uranium to Russia, 'Watergate modern age'.

But in May 2016 - as Trump neared the top seat in the GOP's run for the White House - the Beacon wrapped up the investigation.

According to court filings in a libel suit against Mr. Steele, the ex-spy said he got specific instructions from Fusion GPS to dig up coordination between Trump people and Russian Federation.

Following the console's 3.0 update, there were reports that a third-party adapter could be used to connect a GameCube controller. An example could be given by showing that while playing Breath of the Wild, you won't be able to employ your shield.

The subpoena is part of the committee's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

According to the statement, Free Beacon representatives told the House Intelligence Committee Friday they would answer questions about the "ongoing probe of Fusion GPS and the Steele dossier".

He said: "Contrary to what many have suggested, the President's comments today are unrelated to the activities of the special counsel, with whom he continues to cooperate".

"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.

Levy also alleges that when Fusion GPS co-founder Peter Fritsch and executive Thomas Catan appeared before the Committee last week, the fact that they had pleaded the Fifth Amendment to every question was leaked to outlets including Fox News-and the information could only have come from committee members or staff.

The Republican leaders of the House intelligence and oversight committees on Tuesday announced another new probe, this one into an Obama-era deal in which a Russian company bought a Canadian firm that owned some 20 percent of US uranium supplies.

Nevertheless, alleged collusion between Trump and the Russians became the focus of the research after it was then taken over by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) later last spring, and handed over to former British spy Christopher Steele to drive forward.

At the same time, the House Oversight Committee has launched a probe into the Clinton email investigation that will examine, among other things, why Comey publicly announced that the bureau was investigating Clinton but then waited months before making a similar announcement about its inquiries into the Trump campaign.
