Susan Collins wants Democrats to testify on Trump dossier

Susan Collins wants Democrats to testify on Trump dossier Susan Collins wants Democrats to testify on Trump dossier

In closed-door meetings with congressional Russian Federation investigators in recent weeks, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz denied knowing who funded Fusion's opposition research, three sources familiar with the matter told CNN last week.

WASHINGTON (AP) - A Senate Intelligence Committee member says Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman and the former Democratic Party head need to explain what they knew about a dossier of allegations about President Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

GOP senator Susan Collins, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, wants to recall John Podesta and Debbie Wasserman Schultz to testify before the committee about their knowledge of Clinton campaign payments to Fusion GPS, the firm that created the Trump dossier. "But perhaps there's something more going on here".

CNN reported, citing multiple unnamed sources, that Elias sat next to Podesta during his Senate interview, but was present as Podesta's lawyer rather than as an additional witness. "And the lawyer; absolutely, he more than anyone".

It has been widely reported that supporters of Republican Jeb Bush, a primary opponent of Trump, initially paid for the firm's research. What kind of managers wouldn't know about a couple of million dollars being paid to a law firm to dig up dirt on the opposition candidate?

A source familiar with the matter told CNN on Tuesday that the law firm Perkins Coie, as part of its representation of the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS and entered "into an engagement for research services that began in April 2016 and concluded before the election in early November". Neither disclosed how that money was funneled to Fusion GPS.

Fusion GPS then hired Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer, who wrote the now-infamous dossier.

Representative Trey Gowdy, a Republican who runs the House Oversight Committee, said in an appearance on "Fox News Sunday" that he was more interested in whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Department of Justice used the dossier in conducting their own probes.

"I don't expect the (Democratic National Committee) to be objective", Gowdy said.
