President Trump took to Twitter on Friday to try to undercut House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) and complain about media coverage of ongoing investigations into possible coordination between his 2016 campaign and Russian Federation.
Schiff "is going to be looking at every aspect of my life, both financial and personal, even though there is no reason to be doing so", Trump tweeted Thursday morning.
The dossier, however, has never been fully corroborated nor fully discredited - Despite the president's desire for, and political and legal interests in, the latter.
Schiff would not comment further on what he was referring to in citing "the interests of the investigation".
Simpson, through his research firm based in Washington, D.C., employed Christopher Steele, who authored a salacious dossier "best known for the vast conspiracy it alleges between the Trump campaign and Russian government during the run-up to the 2016 election", reported The Daily Caller News Foundation's Chuck Ross on the two-year anniversary of the dossier's publication.
Trump had touted Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Sen. There are dozens of other transcripts of interviews with former Obama administration officials and Trump associates.
Federal prosecutors accused Stone on charges of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress in a seven-count indictment last month.
In his State of the Union address on Tuesday, Trump dismissed the ongoing probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller as ridiculously partisan.
That's largely because Senate Republicans have given no indication they would vote to remove him from office - and that vote would only come if House Democrats impeached him, which that party's leaders remain reluctant to attempt.
An administration official told reporters to "ask Adam Schiff what that means" when asked about the President's claim Democrats are "stealing people who work at White House". "We're going to do our job and won't be distracted or intimated by threats or attacks".
