The Republican chairman of the House intelligence committee has subpoenaed the head of the Washington firm that commissioned the sensational anti-Trump campaign research dossier adding fresh intensity to the behind-the-scenes scramble among lawmakers to grasp how the infamous document fits into the Russian election meddling investigation.
The subpoena issued for Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson comes as special counsel Robert Muellers separate investigation interviewed the former British spy, Christopher Steele, who worked with Mr. Simpson in compiling the dossier of negative intelligence on Mr. Trump.
The CIA and FBI saw the dossiers allegations as so sensational and sensitive last year that they excluded any mention of it from the intelligence communitys highly publicized accusations back in January about Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Meanwhile, Carter Page, a former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser who filed one of several slander lawsuits because of the dossier, reportedly has said he will not appear before the Senate intelligence committees Russia probe. While unconfirmed whether the committee formally requested his testimony, the energy investor with Russia ties did inform the panel he wont show if they do ask him.
Originally commissioned by Mr. Trumps Republican rivals and then by a Democratic client, the dossier contains allegations about President Trumps Moscow contacts. Mr. Steele wrote it in 2016 with support from Mr. Simpson and his firm before it was published by the online news service BuzzFeed just before Januarys inauguration.

It’s pretty much a straight forward news report > IMO.
Is there a certain portion of it that bothers you I may have missed the significance of?
There is no intelligence in The House.
Are we finally going to get an admission of the obvious that the DNC intentionally ‘fixed’ their own primaries and then colluded with foreign entities to produce disinformation meant to influence and/or interfere with the US elections, foreign entities that the FBI also funded?
No wonder the Weinstein scandal is being trotted out.
When is Mueller going to subpoena John McCain for his part in the phony dossier?
He sent an aide to get it and then took it to crooked Comey.
