WH No Involvement With Puerto Rico Power Contract

WH Trump Administration Has No Involvement With Puerto Rico Power Contract

On Sunday, Donald Trump lashed out in a series of tweets at the dossier and said something should be done about Hillary Clinton's links to the "fake dossier", as the U.S. president put it.

"During the 2016 election cycle we retained Fusion GPS to provide research on multiple candidates in the Republican presidential primary, just as we retained other firms to assist in our research into Hillary Clinton", The Washington Free Beacon editor-in-chief Matthew Continetti and chairman Michael Goldfarb said in a written statement.

"Instead they look at phony Trump/Russia", Trump tweeted following news reports earlier this weekend that special counsel Robert Mueller now has federal grand jury charges in the Russia investigation that could be made public as early as Monday.

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.

'There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out.

The investigation that turned up a dossier allegedly linking Donald Trump to Russian Federation began at the behest of a conservative website owned by a supporter of Marco Rubio, it has emerged.

"The Uranium to Russian Federation deal, the 33,000 plus deleted Emails, the Comey fix and so much more". Trump has repeatedly denied allegations of collusion with Russian Federation during and since the campaign.

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".

The subpoena is part of the committee's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

"I would look for a couple of things: one, whether or not Donald Trump has some reaction and talks in a way that could be used against him in the future, because Bob Mueller would do that", Bharara said.

The dossier, a collection of 17 memos written by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, carried unsubstantiated claims that Russian Federation gave "valuable intelligence" on Clinton to the Trump campaign and also gathered compromising information on Trump with the intention to blackmail him later, among other claims.

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.

The House Intelligence Committee announced Saturday that Fusion GPS, the firm behind the anti-Trump files, has agreed to reveal its financial records.

The White House confirmed on Friday that the President had urged the Justice Department to release an informant in the uranium probe from a confidentiality deal so he could speak to Congress.

Congressional sources say Fusion GPS is an opposition-research group for Democrats though it claims to be a "research and strategic intelligence firm".

Marc Elias, a lawyer for the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign, hired the research firm in the spring of 2016. But the State Department has only one seat on the panel that approved the transaction, and the New York Times has reported that Clinton did not participate in the decision.
