A source within the Trump campaign reported concerns to the FBI – according to the man behind a controversial dossier on Donald Trump – a new transcript reveals.
Senator Dianne Feinstein on Tuesday unilaterally released the transcript of a congressional interview with Glenn Simpson – whose research firm Fusion GPS was behind the dossier on alleged contacts between Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government.
The dossier makes an allegation that there was a ‘conspiracy of cooperation’ between Russian agents and the Trump campaign and the president has frequently scorned it since its publication last January.
According to the transcript Simpson told the senators that ‘an internal Trump campaign source’ or ‘a human source from inside the Trump organization’ reported his or her concerns to the FBI.
Simpson said that this information was drawn from Christopher Steele – the former British spy who compiled the dossier during the 2016 presidential campaign – after the FBI ‘had debriefed him’ that fall.
