Trump in Twitter flurry over Russian Federation investigation
Oct 31, 2017, 00:43
Republican Sen. Susan Collins said Sunday the Senate Intelligence Committee must ask concerned Democrats to re-testify after the new revelation that the "Russia dossier", which alleged President Donald Trump's connections to Russian Federation, was partly funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
President Trump on Sunday said the lack of investigation into the Clinton campaign spending a reported $12 million on a dossier crafted during the 2016 presidential race to smear him has sparked unprecedented "anger and unity" among fellow Republicans.
CNN reported Friday that a federal grand jury in Washington had approved the first charges in Mueller's investigation, and that plans had been made for anyone charged to be taken into custody as early as Monday.
But the conservative news publication denies it had any knowledge or connection to the now-infamous dossier of allegations about President Donald Trump and Russian Federation written by ex-British agent Christopher Steele, who was commissioned by Fusion GPS. "There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out".
Clinton was Trump's Democratic rival in the 2016 USA presidential election and faced questions about her handling of classified material after it became public that she used a private email server in her home for some of her correspondence.
In the series of tweets Sunday, the president again attempted to make the larger case that Washington and the rest of the country is consumed by the Justice Department's special counsel probe into whether Trump associates colluded with Russian Federation during the White House race, amid similar issues related to Democrats and others.
Last week Trump labeled the deal, which gave Russia 20 per cent of the U.S.'s uranium to Russia, 'Watergate modern age'.
The Clinton campaign and the DNC may have violated campaign finance laws in funding the Russian Federation dossier, according to an FEC complaint filed on October 25 by Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan nonprofit on election laws.
On Sunday, Trump went after Mueller's investigation again.
Collins' suggestion on Sunday came amid further developments in the special counsel's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 US election, which coincides with the Senate investigation into meddling.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., chairman of the House Oversight Committee, came to Mueller's defense and said that he doesn't agree with Republicans who are calling for Mueller to resign or stop his investigation.
On Friday, representatives of The Washington Free Beacon, a conservative website, informed the committee that it first hired Fusion GPS during the 2016 Republican presidential primary to conduct opposition research on Trump and several GOP presidential candidates.
Langer said Saturday that "the Beacon has agreed to cooperate with the House Intelligence Committee to help the Committee verify" that the outlet had no connection to Steele's dossier.
Podesta and Wasserman Schultz last month denied knowledge about payments when interviewed by congressional investigators.
Collins says Elias should also be questioned.
Revelations about the funding of the research into Trump's business, which the House committee was hoping to reveal via subpoena, answered one of the biggest mysteries of the 2016 presidential campaign.
