Trump Suggests 'Fake Dossier' Was a Conspiracy Between Russia, FBI, Democrats

Executives of Firm Tied to Trump Dossier Take the Fifth at Committee Meeting

Two executives of a firm that helped produce an opposition-research dossier that makes salacious claims about President Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation refused to answer questions Wednesday in a private meeting with the House Intelligence Committee.

"Workers of firm involved with the discredited and Fake Dossier take the 5th".

A special counsel looking into whether Russian Federation tried to sway the 2016 USA election, led by former FBI director Robert Mueller, has since taken over the investigation.

The dossier alleged numerous connections between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, and posits that the country compiled compromising information on Trump-including salacious details about Trump's sex life.

It has been widely reported that the dossier was initially financed by anti-Trump Republicans before Democrats picked up the check as the campaign moved toward the general election.




Republican lawmakers have been pressing Fusion GPS for months to identify those who paid for Steele's work, but the firm has refused.

Fusion GPS executives Peter Fritsch and Thomas Catan dodged every single question asked by members of the House Intelligence Committee during a hearing, according to sources speaking to Breitbart News. "We can not in good conscience do anything but advise our clients to stand on their constitutional privileges, the attorney work product doctrine and contractual obligations", wrote Joshua Levy, the head of Fusion GPS' legal team. The firm's founder, Glenn Simpson, had previously given a 10-hour interview to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far.

Suggesting that a federal intelligence service coordinated with a foreign power to produce a dossier about him is just Trump's latest explosive and unsubstantiated accusation.
