'FBI had source inside Trump campaign'

13 January 2018, 04:00 | Casey Mitchell

Gaetz said he also wants to know if the Federal Bureau of Investigation brought the dossier to a FISA court to obtain clearance for surveillance on members of the Trump campaign.

In urging the committee to release the full transcript of his interview, Simpson has argued that Republicans are trying to obscure what happened in 2016. "I think it was a voluntary source, someone who was concerned about the same concerns we had".

MCEVERS: First off, what is this transcript?

If Grassley and Lindsey Graham had not lied about Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson's testimony, Feinstein never would have needed to release it. Fusion GPS hired Steele.

Trump's personal lawyer claims Russian Federation dossier... "My job isn't to make the president look good or bad".

NC General Assembly to address GenX in session today
The State House unanimously approved to send millions of dollars to the Department of Environment Quality for GenX research. A mandate that NCDEQ communicate water quality data back and forth with Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

MCEVERS: What else is in it?

President Trump's longtime attorney is suing the research firm that compiled the infamous Russian Federation dossier on President Trump and the news website BuzzFeed, which published it.

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". Two months later, at the FBI's request, Steele gave a more in-depth briefing to bureau officials at a meeting in Rome.

Former intelligence agent Christopher Steele took his concerns to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in July 2016, the Senate was told. But what he does tell investigators is that the individual approached the Federal Bureau of Investigation with similar concerns as Steele.

After the article was published, Simpson said, Steele severed his relationship with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. If true, this constituted a national security issue and Steele, a former British intelligence officer, said he was going to disclose everything to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

MCEVERS: The dossier's also of course been the target of some pretty consistent political attacks from the president's allies.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the committee, unilaterally released the transcripts on Tuesday, saying Americans had a right to know.

Some Republicans have been critical of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, claiming the initial Federal Bureau of Investigation probe was triggered by Mr Steele's dossier.

LUCAS: Grassley, the Republican chairman, has. Following his lead, several GOP-led committees are now investigating whether the dossier formed the basis for the FBI's initial investigations. Simpson did say "the DOJ has rules against law enforcement getting involved in investigations in the middle of a campaign and this was obviously - you know this obviously became a huge issue". He says that it wasn't because the Federal Bureau of Investigation had been hearing the same thing from that voluntary informant inside the Trump campaign. Simpson acknowledged that he didn't like Trump as a candidate but said his job was to find facts, not to push an agenda. They weren't encouraged, discouraged. It was like calling 911 when witnessing a potential crime, Steele noted.

MCEVERS: NPR's Ryan Lucas, thanks a lot.
