Senate to examine financial records of firm behind notorious Trump-Russia dossier

Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, and former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz privately denied to congressional Russian Federation investigators that they had any knowledge about an arrangement to pay for opposition research on Trump, three sources familiar with the matter told CNN earlier this week.

Several of the individuals involved in the uranium scandal are central to the Russian Federation investigation, including former FBI Director James Comey, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and special counsel for the Russian Federation investigation Robert Mueller. "There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out".

The tweets came days after Republicans announced they were opening new congressional investigations into the Justice Department's investigation of Mrs Clinton's emails under President Obama and into the uranium deal.

"They failed to accurately disclose the objective and recipient of payments for the dossier of research alleging connections between then-candidate Donald Trump and Russian Federation, effectively hiding these payments from public scrutiny, contrary to the requirements of federal law", states a press release from the organization.

And he was returning to questions about Clinton's use of a private email server and how former FBI Director James Comey handled an investigation into the matter, which was closed with no charges being filed.

That definition - "coordination" - would seem to make the Democrats ripe for special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate, ex-Trump aides say.

Congress is also looking into allegations of collusion between Trump associates and Russian Federation.

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

The Republican lawmakers said they want to know if the transaction was fully investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other agencies before a panel that oversees foreign investment in usa strategic assets approved it.

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.

Republicans have tried to nail Clinton on pay-to-play allegations as her husband was paid $500,000 to give a speech in Moscow by a Russian bank with Kremlin ties and connections to the Uranium One deal, while the decision-making process was taking place.

Fusion GPS, which hired Steele to gather information, was first employed to investigate Trump during the Republican primaries by the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative publication that receives financial support from billionaire GOP donor Paul Singer, according to two people familiar with Singer. Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS to conduct the research, according to the report.

What is known now that was not known in March: The Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid for an opposition research operation against candidate Trump that relied nearly exclusively on paid Kremlin sources and Russian spies during the 2016 election.

The research effort expanded in March 2016 under financing from Democrats. On the one hand, it has emerged that the Clinton campaign and the DNC were behind the infamous Trump-Russia dossier that fueled the narrative that the Trump campaign colludied with Russia. The New York Times has not confirmed that charges have been approved.
