Trump dossier: Democratic funding may lead to subpoenas, Devin Nunes says
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) told FOX Business’ Lou Dobbs that top officials from the Obama and Trump administrations have until Friday to reveal information about Democrats’ funding of the now-infamous Trump dossier or face subpoenas.
“We’ve learned that the FBI and Department of Justice knew that the Democrats and the Hillary [Clinton] campaign had paid for the dossier,” Nunes said on Wednesday.
The dossier contained allegations that the Russian government had collected compromising information about Trump and that the Kremlin was engaged in an active effort to assist his presidential campaign.
Nunes, who coordinated the four-page memo which alleged intelligence abuse by the DOJ and FBI during the 2016 Trump campaign, said discovering who within the intelligence community had knowledge of the dossier is the second phase of the investigation.
“Looking at who knew about this dossier at the higher levels, not just the FBI, but other agencies and when they knew about it,” he said on “Lou Dobbs Tonight.”
