In October, The Washington Post reported that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party had funded the investigation, which came to light after the November election and amid allegations about links between Trump and the Kremlin.

The Fox News report that Trump is quoting is itself bogus - parts of the dossier seem to be accurate, and the FBI investigation is uncovering more unnerving aspects of Trump's relationship with Russian Federation during his campaign.

The president weighed in on Twitter, in response to a Washington Times report that was discussed on "Fox & Friends". But in the months since the dossier first leaked, independent investigations by the US intelligence community have corroborated key details first uncovered in the dossier, contrary to Trump's assertion that the entire document is "bogus". "FBI TAINTED." And they utilized this Crooked Hillary heap of waste as the reason for pursuing the Trump Campaign!" he composed.

President Donald Trump may have moderated his tweeting over Christmas break, however now that the occasion is finished, he's back at it, pursuing his faultfinders and the uprightness of the Russian Federation examination. The ads mostly targeted Clinton before the presidential selection and during the campaigning for the presidential run but shifted their focus to Trump once he became the president. Former British spy Christopher Steele compiled the document, after being hired by Fusion GPS - an opposition research firm that got funding from the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. The dossier was even used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to secure a FISA warrant to monitor Page's communications with Russian officials.

Chaffetz stated "The dossier we have long known is bogus".

"It's all phony news", Trump beforehand said in regards to the cases in the dossier.

It also was the DOJ's Bruce Ohr whose wife, Nellie, was paid by Fusion GPS during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The Trump administration and GOP lawmakers have criticized the veracity of the Steele dossier, asserting that it was compiled on behalf of the Clinton campaign and used by the FBI to investigate the Trump campaign.

A representative for the Special Counsel's team declined to comment on the interview.
