Democrats Should Testify on Trump Dossier, Sen. Susan Collins Says

Democrats Should Testify on Trump Dossier, Sen. Susan Collins Says Democrats Should Testify on Trump Dossier, Sen. Susan Collins Says

USA intelligence agencies concluded in January that Russian Federation interfered in the election to try and help President Donald Trump defeat Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

The tweets came as CNN, citing "sources briefed on the matter", has continued to report that a federal grand jury in Washington on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

In September, Elias was with former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta in a closed-door interview with Senate Intelligence Committee staffers when Podesta claimed he knew nothing about payments to Fusion GPS, as reported by CNN.

Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer handling the response to the Russian Federation investigation, said the president's tweets were "unrelated to the activities of the special counsel, with whom he continues to cooperate". "There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out".

Some of that research became the now-infamous dossier of allegations about the now-President and Russian Federation.

Democrats have downplayed the funding aspect of the dossier, which was funded by an unnamed "never Trump" Republican in the primary and then the Democrats through the general election, as they argue to content of the memo is more important.

On Sunday, Trump went after Mueller's investigation again.

Said J.D. Gordon, a former Pentagon spokesman and a Trump campaign national security adviser, "Considering what we've learned in recent days about the sources of Fusion GPS funding, I imagine that Hillary's campaign and the DNC will be investigated by the special counsel". Trump has repeatedly denied allegations of collusion with Russian Federation during and since the campaign.

Egyptian official: 14 policemen killed southwest of Cairo
The agency, citing an unnamed security official, said that a number of militants were killed but gave no further details. It also said that 13 policemen, including four officers and nine conscripts, were injured and one policeman was missing.

Collins' suggestion on Sunday came amid further developments in the special counsel's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election, which coincides with the Senate investigation into meddling.

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 added that if he "were to guess" who instigated the investigation, "I have one name in mind" - but declined to say who he was thinking of.

Rep. Adam Schiff, Calif., the ranking Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said Sunday that "a lot" of the information in the dossier has been corroborated.

When it comes to the "Uranium to Russian Federation deal" that Trump referenced in his tweet, House and Senate Republican leaders have already announced two investigations into decisions made during the Barack Obama administration, when Clinton was secretary of state, involving a uranium deal that increased Russia's share of the US nuclear market.

Democratic lawmakers mostly stayed out of the Sunday fray after a week in which Clinton's 2016 campaign came under fresh scrutiny.

Trump and a number of his allies have reveled in the revelation that Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee funded the opposition research known as the dossier, which includes a number of unsubstantiated anecdotes about Trump's behavior in Russian Federation.
