“It’s too convenient,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, a Republican member of the House Judiciary Committee said, discussing the leaking of documents by U.S. government officials.
He noted that they have just now started leaking information that downplays the document’s significance to the Russia inquiry.
“The Democrats touted the Steele dossier’s conspiracy theories all year. But now, with the dossier’s credibility in tatters, they’re suddenly claiming that it was a totally irrelevant document all along,” another source told TheDC.
Two of the co-founders of the opposition research firm behind the infamous Steele dossier say they are “extremely proud” of their work investigating Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.
But Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch, two partners at Fusion GPS, provide little in the way of evidence to support the core allegations made in their salacious report. Specifically that the Kremlin has blackmail material on Trump. Also that the campaign colluded directly with the Kremlin to influence the election.
California Rep. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, wrote a letter last to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein accusing the Justice Department of ignoring subpoenas. Those subpoenas were sent to the agency by the Intelligence Committee back in August.
In the letter dated Dec. 28, Nenes accuses the agency of ignoring his requests for information pertaining to the Steele dossier.
Nunes called the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) response to subpoenas sent in August for the information “disingenuous at best.”
A subset of the Republican members of the House intelligence committee, led by Nunes, has been quietly working parallel to the committee’s high-profile inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. They haven’t informed Democrats about their plans, but they have consulted with the House’s general counsel.
This group of House Republicans has gathered secretly for weeks in the Capitol. It is an all out effort to build a case that senior leaders of the Justice Department and FBI criminally mishandled the contents of a dossier.
