Trump and a number of his allies have reveled in the revelation that Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee funded the opposition research known as the dossier, which includes a number of unsubstantiated anecdotes about Trump's behavior in Russian Federation.

"During the 2016 election cycle we retained Fusion GPS to provide research on multiple candidates in the Republican presidential primary, just as we retained other firms to assist in our research into Hillary Clinton", The Washington Free Beacon editor-in-chief Matthew Continetti and chairman Michael Goldfarb said in a written statement.

"The Dems are using this awful (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics, but the R's are now fighting back like never before". As part of his inquiry, Mueller is believed to be examining whether there was collusion between Trump's campaign and Moscow, and whether the president obstructed justice when he fired Comey.

Collins' suggestion on Sunday came amid further developments in the special counsel's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election, which coincides with the Senate investigation into meddling. "There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out".

The Trump dossier has become the focus of fierce partisan battles, with Trump and allies arguing the allegations it contains are politically motivated.

The Washington Free Beacon, a conservative website funded by hedge fund billionaire Paul Singer, first retained the firm in 2015, according to the New York Times.

Ty Cobb, a member of the President's legal team, was forced to deny that Mr Trump's tweets on Sunday were a response to news of the latest developments in the Russian Federation investigation. "And my colleagues don't seem particularly interested in that question, but that is really the most important question for the American people".

The committee is probing the 2016 dossier, which was compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele after being contracted by Washington firm Fusion GPS.




She added that they were most likely aware of the Democrats role in the preparation of this document. The DNC paid the law firm more than $2.9 million for "legal and compliance consulting" and reported $66,500 for research consulting.

Rep. Adam Schiff, Calif., the ranking Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said Sunday that "a lot" of the information in the dossier has been corroborated.

Collins said on CBS' Face the Nation that "it's hard to imagine" that Podesta didn't know about the funding.

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. CNN reported that a federal grand jury had approved an indictment, although details of the possible charges and the name of a defendant remained unclear.

Levy also alleges that when Fusion GPS co-founder Peter Fritsch and executive Thomas Catan appeared before the Committee last week, the fact that they had pleaded the Fifth Amendment to every question was leaked to outlets including Fox News-and the information could only have come from committee members or staff.

At the same time, the House Oversight Committee has launched a probe into the Clinton email investigation that will examine, among other things, why Comey publicly announced that the bureau was investigating Clinton but then waited months before making a similar announcement about its inquiries into the Trump campaign.

The research effort expanded in March 2016 under financing from Democrats.
