    From Fusion GPS in the NYT tonight.

    Republicans have refused to release full transcripts of our firm’s testimony, even as they selectively leak details to media outlets on the far right. It’s time to share what our company told investigators.

    We don’t believe the Steele dossier was the trigger for the F.B.I.’s investigation into Russian meddling. As we told the Senate Judiciary Committee in August, our sources said the dossier was taken so seriously because it corroborated reports the bureau had received from other sources, including one inside the Trump camp.

    The intelligence committees have known for months that credible allegations of collusion between the Trump camp and Russia were pouring in from independent sources during the campaign. Yet lawmakers in the thrall of the president continue to wage a cynical campaign to portray us as the unwitting victims of Kremlin disinformation.

    We suggested investigators look into the bank records of Deutsche Bank and others that were funding Mr. Trump’s businesses. Congress appears uninterested in that tip: Reportedly, ours are the only bank records the House Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed.

    lol The only thing verified from that thing is stuff that was available to the general public. Every thing pointing to any collusion is made up BS. The FBI will be exposed pretty soon officially for working with the Clinton camp financed nonsense. Worse than Watergate - spying for an opposing campaign using US intelligence agencies.

    Right. How did Papadapolous know that the Russians has the DNC emails 2 months before they were released? Why as Junior and others meeting with Russians in Trump Tower to try to get HRC emails, according to e-mails Junior released?

    Unless Junior's e-mails are fake and the Australians are lying about the Downer-Papadapolous meeting, there already is evidence of collusion. The only question is the extent of it. LOL NOT.

    Why wont Congress release the Fusion GPS transcripts and evidence to prove to all of us whether the Dossier is "Fake?"

    Because they have the audacity to debunk the narrative. Easy to decide who is right. Release the transcripts and supporting documents. The Republicans will not do it because they do not want us to see the truth of how accurate Steele was.

    Do you think Fusion GPS is a credible source of information about Donald Trump?

    But the NYT has an agenda that so far has yet to be proven to be grounded in fact

    There is no reason to dispute their credibility. They have asked that the transcripts and evidence provided to Congress be released. That supports their credibility.

    But, Grassley will not release their transcripts and evidence so we can assess the accuracy of all the information, which supports that the information was credible. It makes it easy to attack Fusion GPS if the public cannot read it for themselves. That affords the Republicans the opportunity to attack Steele and Fusion GPS in the court of public opinion, without allowing us to verify it.

    In addition, the Page allegations have been significantly publicly verified, as other posters have pointed out.

    This is the not the NYT talking, it's the guys who run Fusion GPS. They want their full transcripts released. How can anyone argue against that?

    This is pretty funny if it wasn't the biggest abuse of govt power in history probably with regards to a campaign for POTUS.

    Basically the FBI used a joke dossier that wasn't even a good piece of fiction that was financed by the other campaign to spy on Americans. I guess they were so convinced all politicians were as crooked as their Hillary that they would find something showing Trump colluded with the Russians once they did the illegal spying. Basically Clinton's campaign fed them this dossier that the sources are supposed to be Russians which if true would mean Hillary's camp colluded with Russians via Steele to create a dossier the FBI would use to spy on Trump. I think Bruce Ohr's wife created much of this fiction however and gave it to Steele.

    How about the Senate just release the damn transcripts and we can all make an informed answer to that question?

    But Grassley (and Nunes in the Jouse) will play dutiful partisan goalies against the truth as long as they can to protect the President. Ryan should have demoted Nunes for last year’s nonsense but he’s utterly feckless. If a Dem pulled that shit pubs would be screaming “impeach”

    And I hope Hilary gets investigated, for a lot of reasons, starting with that we deserve the truth there too. Although I can only imagine the number of unflattering, negative and “corrupt” text messages that would turn up against Hilary given how unlikeable She appears. It would likely make the guy on Mueller’s team seem docile by comparison.
