The Trump dossier's credibility is collapsing

Trump's Personal Lawyer Is Suing BuzzFeed Over That Explosive Russia Dossier

"Are we in the midst of a major criminal investigation against the president of the United States as a result of this dodgy dossier?"

Since then, the "Steele dossier" has been an object of bipartisan fascination. "When the White House released its official transcript Tuesday afternoon, the president's line - "Yeah, I would like to do it" - was missing", The Washington Post reports.

Mueller and his team are investigating whether Russian Federation and Trump's Republican campaign co-ordinated to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election and whether Trump worked to obstruct an FBI investigation into his aides.

Congress made a decision to look into the matter. Later, she released the full 312-page transcript of the Senate Judiciary Committee's interrogation of Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. I haven't had a single person approach me to say, "I wish I hadn't read the dossier, and wish I had less insight into the forces at play in America".

Simpson and another co-founding executive Peter Simpson Fritsch had urged the full publication of the testimony on January 2 in a New York Times op-ed.

Dianne Feinstein deserves kudos for releasing the contents of a transcript that settled once and for all the question of how the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election got started.

It wasn't clear what about Feinstein's act may have made it a "possibly illegal way", as Trump suggested in his tweet. It is a collection of information that would not pass muster with the Central Intelligence Agency or the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

We can get through 'Me too' moment, Streep says
Meantime, newly widowed Kay Graham (Streep) finds herself in charge of the Washington Post and preparing for its IPO. It was also particularly dicey because Graham was about to take the company public with a stock offering.

In the interview, Simpson was asked if he had taken steps "assess the credibility" of the sources for Steele's dossier, but he declined to discuss "sourcing information".

That session at the Justice Department, confirmed by Fox News, came after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray agreed to make the documents available to lawmakers under pressure from Nunes.

Simpson said Steele went to the FBI in late June or "at the latest" early July - weeks before the FBI reportedly launched its investigation into the Trump campaign.

Let's start by piecing together, as best we can, what various critics of the investigation, including the most vociferous Trump supporters, think is going on.

The President is tantruming because the conspiracy theory that he was using to discredit the Russian Federation investigation was blown to bits.

Cohen said he told the panels that he never engaged with, was paid by, or communicated with anyone representing the Russian government, or anyone else, about hacking or interfering with the USA election, hacking the Democratic Party, or about creating fake news stories to assist the Trump campaign or to damage the Clinton campaign. But we no longer need to quibble about the implications of the GOP's premise, because that premise is false.

"When you're looking at a guy like Donald Trump who doesn't like to share information about his company, it's useful to find a jurisdiction where he's required to share that information. Sees No Clear Link to Russian Federation".
