Donald Trump: Who Paid for the Fake Dossier from Fusion GPS?

President Donald Trump questioned on Thursday if the Federal Bureau of Investigation was behind an intelligence dossier that alleged ties between Russian Federation and his presidential campaign, gave the federal aid effort for Puerto Rico a "10", and met with Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen as he draws closer to announcing his choice for the central bank's next leader.

The political research firm was responsible for the lewd, controversial dossier which contained information about Trump's alleged links to Russian Federation.

The political research firm behind the dossier balked this week at subpoenas from the House Intelligence Committee.

Trump has vigorously denied allegations in the document that the Russian government has collected compromising information about him and was engaged in an active effort to assist his campaign.

Two officials from the firm behind the dossier, Fusion GPS, appeared before the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday, but answered no questions, and instead invoking their fifth amendment rights against self-incrimination, Bloomberg reports. Fusion GPS says they have promised confidentiality to their clients and to violate that obligation would harm their business model.

It will take time for Iraq and its Kurdish region to restore amicable relations after the strains of the past three weeks. Kirkuk, long claimed by the Kurds as part of their historic territory, has emerged as the main flashpoint in the dispute.

It has been widely reported that the dossier was initially financed by anti-Trump Republicans before Democrats picked up the check as the campaign moved toward the general election.

In August, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee for 10 hours, Levy said.

Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far.

However, The Washington Post said Trump's tweet suggests that he is accusing the Federal Bureau of Investigation of being involved earlier in the process of creating the dossier, but a Federal Bureau of Investigation spokesman refused to comment. But even before that, the FBI was aware of the then-unpublished dossier - and in October, they reportedly paid former MI-6 agent Christopher Steele $50,000 to continue his investigation.
