Republicans Uniting Over Reveal That Clintons and DNC Were Behind Russia Conspiracy

Republican lawmakers on Tuesday launched investigations to examine several of President Donald Trump's longstanding political grievances, including the FBI probe of Hillary Clinton's emails and her alleged role in a sale of USA uranium to a Russian firm.

President Trump on Sunday said the lack of investigation into the Clinton campaign spending a reported $12 million on a dossier crafted during the 2016 presidential race to smear him has sparked unprecedented "anger and unity" among fellow Republicans.

That definition - "coordination" - would seem to make the Democrats ripe for special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate, ex-Trump aides say.

According to the Post's report, lawyer Marc E. Elias, who represented both Clinton's campaign and the DNC, and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the firm Fusion GPS in April 2016 to investigate any connections.

The dossier forms part of their investigation into allegations that members of Trump's team colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election. "There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out".

Several top Democrats should be summoned to testify before the US Senate Intelligence Committee on the infamous Trump-Russia dossier, US Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) has said.

Last week Trump labeled the deal, which gave Russia 20 per cent of the U.S.'s uranium to Russia, 'Watergate modern age'.

On Sunday talk shows, Republicans rallied around Trump and questioned how CNN could have received information about secret grand jury proceedings.

Fusion then hired British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to unearth Trump's skeletons.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC may have violated campaign finance laws in funding the Russian Federation dossier, according to an FEC complaint filed on October 25 by Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan nonprofit on election laws.

Multiple congressional committees have undertaken their own investigations into Russian meddling in the elections, following up on the conclusion of USA intelligence agencies that Moscow sought to sway the contest in favor of Trump - an idea that he has frequently dismissed as a hoax.

He said: "Contrary to what many have suggested, the President's comments today are unrelated to the activities of the special counsel, with whom he continues to cooperate".

Republican Susan Collins of ME, a Senate Intelligence Committee member, said Clinton's campaign chairman and the former Democratic Party head need to explain what they knew about the dossier.

It's unclear how much the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee paid for the opposition research by Fusion GPS, a Washington, D.C., firm that conducts investigations for private clients.

When then-FBI Director James B. Comey explained to Congress last March the scope of his investigation into Donald Trump aides and Russian Federation, his words would also fit the Hillary Clinton campaign today.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy announced a probe to address "outstanding questions" about why former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey publicly disclosed the bureau's investigation ofClinton but never disclosed one into Trump's associates in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Mr. Comey told the House Intelligence Committed that his agents were investigating "whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia's efforts". But the State Department has only one seat on the panel that approved the transaction, and the New York Times has reported that Clinton did not participate in the decision.
