“We have no evidence of Russia collusion between the Trump campaign” and Russia, Nunes said.
That's why we have investigations like the one you recused yourself from.
Was that comment made before or after the latest PapaD story broke?

The Republicans’ Fake Investigations
By GLENN R. SIMPSON and PETER FRITSCH
A generation ago, Republicans sought to protect President Richard Nixon by urging the Senate Watergate committee to look at supposed wrongdoing by Democrats in previous elections. The committee chairman, Sam Ervin, a Democrat, said that would be “as foolish as the man who went bear hunting and stopped to chase rabbits.”

Today, amid a growing criminal inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, congressional Republicans are again chasing rabbits. We know because we’re their favorite quarry.

In the year since the publication of the so-called Steele dossier — the collection of intelligence reports we commissioned about Donald Trump’s ties to Russia — the president has repeatedly attacked us on Twitter. His allies in Congress have dug through our bank records and sought to tarnish our firm to punish us for highlighting his links to Russia. Conservative news outlets and even our former employer, The Wall Street Journal, have spun a succession of mendacious conspiracy theories about our motives and backers.

We are happy to correct the record. In fact, we already have.

:snippity:
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.

The Guardian
Russia-Trump inquiry: 'FBI knew of collusion allegations during campaign'

The investigative firm behind the Steele dossier, the controversial memo that alleged extensive collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign officials and Russia, has claimed that the FBI received “credible allegations” about a Kremlin conspiracy throughout the 2016 US election campaign, including from inside the Trump camp.

An op-ed in the New York Times written by Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch, the former journalists and founders of investigative firm Fusion GPS, said congressional intelligence committees, who are conducting their own investigations into the Trump campaign, have been aware of the allegations for months.

“We don’t believe the Steele dossier was the trigger for the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling,” they wrote. “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 op-ed also called on lawmakers to examine financial institutions that were funding the US president’s businesses.

The article represents the first time that Simpson and Fritsch have offered a detailed public account of their firm’s involvement in the Russia investigation. In it, they allege that Republican lawmakers are waging a “cynical campaign” to portray Fusion GPS and the now infamous Steele dossier as “unwitting victims of Kremlin disinformation”.

Politico
Grassley open to public testimony from Fusion GPS leaders, spokesman says

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is willing to have executives from the firm behind the disputed Trump-Russia dossier testify publicly, his spokesman said Wednesday, adding that the Iowa Republican hasn't sought the release of a transcript of his panel's earlier interview with them for investigative reasons.

The leaders of Fusion GPS, the firm that commissioned a former British spy to compile a dossier that describes an elaborate web of Trump ties to the Kremlin, said in a New York Times opinion piece Tuesday that Republicans had bottled up their closed-door testimony while leaking selective details to undermine their credibility.

"Senator Grassley has always been and remains for transparency," Grassley spokesman Taylor Foy said Wednesday. "There are, however, investigative factors that he must consider to temporarily protect certain information in the midst of an ongoing inquiry such as this one, like tainting the memory of other witnesses." ...

Joshua Levy, an attorney for Fusion GPS, urged Grassley to call a vote of the committee on releasing Simpson's testimony, which he said would amount to 300 pages covering a 10-hour interview. Levy also said Grassley's office "misstates the history of Mr. Simpson's cooperation with its investigation."

“We have consistently supported release of the transcript, so long as we would have the opportunity to review it for accuracy, and so long as the identities of Fusion’s bank and employees could be protected," Levy said. "Having had the opportunity to review the full transcript, Fusion GPS wants it released."

Talking Points Memo
Russian Social Media Giant Gave Info on Trump Contacts to Senate Probe

The Russian social media giant Vkontakte has given information to Senate investigators about contacts between an executive at the company and the Trump campaign, TPM has learned.

The Russian tech firm appears to be cooperating with the Senate Judiciary Committee by providing documents related to communication between Russian nationals and Dan Scavino, a Trump campaign staffer who now works as the White House social media director.

Vkontakte, a social network similar to Facebook, ranks as the most popular website in Russia and is owned by the publicly traded Mail.Ru.

The nature of the documents obtained by the Committee isn’t clear, but previous reports in the press have detailed emails exchanged in 2016 between Konstantin Sidorkov, VKontakte’s director of partnership marketing, and Scavino. ...

On Wednesday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent letters to Scavino and Brad Parscale, the Trump campaign’s digital director, asking about the campaign’s contacts with Russia. “[T]he Committee has received information that you may have corresponded with Russian nationals regarding Trump campaign social media efforts,” Feinstein wrote to Scavino.

Their letter makes what’s called a criminal referral to the Justice Department, suggesting they investigate the dossier author, former British spy Christopher Steele, for possibly lying to the FBI. It is a crime to lie to FBI agents about a material fact relevant to an ongoing investigation.

The move was viewed skeptically by some Democrats and experts in criminal law.

Maybe that's the point. They can make a lot of noise pointing fingers at Steele without having to actually prove anything.

McClatchy
Lead Democrat slams GOP assaults on Trump-Russia probes

WASHINGTON

The top Senate Democrat investigating Donald Trump’s Russia ties says he believes mounting Republican assaults on federal inquiries into the matter are “a lot of bluster” and only indicate that probers “are getting closer and closer to connecting the dots.” ...

“If you’ve got the Australian ambassador thinking this was important enough we ought to report it to the FBI, if you’ve got Steve Bannon thinking these kinds of contacts should be reported to the FBI … I think it would be reasonable to expect that somebody who was playing by the book would report these kinds of contacts or acknowledge a foreign government’s intervention in our electoral process,” Warner said.

Given that even former Trump political guru Bannon found the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower to be improper, Warner said he questions how anyone “looking for the truth could … walk away from these investigations.” ...

But Warner said allegations in the dossier, which quotes multiple sources close to the Kremlin as describing collaboration between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign, are “very damning” and that the committee has made progress toward substantiating some of them.

“I don’t know how you ever remove the cloud from this presidency without the allegations in the dossier being put to rest, either proven or disproven,” he said.

General Noriega has a few opinions about non-US citizens being prosecuted under our laws.
Edit: If he hadn't died last year.
In that case, we invaded his country, captured him, and dragged him into the US for trial - for violating US laws.

What's to keep Trump from invading England to capture Steele? :think:

Cross-posting

WaPo - Aaron Blake
The GOP’s very strange letter calling for an investigation of Christopher Steele ...

The backdrop against which this letter has suddenly emerged is extremely important here.

There is an increasing effort among Republicans and the conservative-leaning media to question the legitimacy of the Russia investigation. Increasingly prominent in that effort are attempts to use the Steele dossier as the basis for a deep-state conspiracy against the president. The argument is basically that the dossier was used as the pretext for investigating the Trump campaign — despite The Washington Post and others reporting that other things also factored into that decision — and that it represents collusion between the Democrats who helped fund it and federal law enforcement. Grassley has long called for answers about the FBI's use of the Steele dossier. The FBI at one point reached an agreement to use Steele as a source, though that agreement was scrapped when his role in creating the dossier became public.

As a journalist, you generally prefer that things be stated on the record for all to see. But in this case, Grassley and Graham are making a very serious accusation about someone who is deeply involved in the most significant political story in our country right now, and without any substantiation.

Why not make this referral privately? What's the purpose of making it public, besides raising suspicions about Steele personally — and without the chance to really defend himself against unspecified charges?

About the only reason I can think of is that they want to apply political pressure — either because they don't trust the Justice Department to investigate Steele if they inquired privately or because they want to make the case that the investigation ignored their concerns if it doesn't, or both.

This is designed to keep Steele from coming to the US to testify in person. Remember, they sent a contingent to the UK to try and intimidate him. It didn't work. So, they are trying to "Bill Browder" him

WHITEHOUSE & BLUMENTHAL DEMAND IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF FUSION GPS TESTIMONY

Senators call on Chairman Grassley to make public the full transcript of Glenn Simpson’s 10-hour interview with the Senate Judiciary Committee

[WASHINGTON, DC] – U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) wrote U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) to call for the immediate release of testimony that Glenn Simpson, CEO of Fusion GPS, delivered to the Senate Judiciary Committee in August.

“We write to call for the immediate release of the transcript of the Judiciary Committee’s interview with Glenn Simpson, CEO of Fusion GPS. Sadly, attacks on Simpson and Christopher Steele, as well as selective leaks of parts of Simpson’s Congressional testimony, have recently become a distraction from our work investigating the breathtaking proven and alleged crimes of the Russian government and the Trump team,” the Senators wrote. “The American people deserve the facts. There is simply no reason to keep the Simpson testimony (or other testimony before our committee for that matter) hidden while this distraction goes on.”

Grassley supported releasing the transcript of Simpson’s testimony shortly after the interview took place, but has not yet taken any action to do so. Meanwhile, Simpson’s testimony has been selectively leaked, even as public reporting has debunked the theory that his company’s work formed the basis for the investigation into Russian election meddling.

“Diverting our focus from Russian interference to Glenn Simpson or Christopher Steele is, in our view, a misallocation of scarce resources. To the extent that you believe continued attention to those individuals is warranted, the American people should be allowed to decide for themselves,” the Senators wrote.

Feinstein: American People Deserve Opportunity to Read Glenn Simpson, Fusion GPS Transcript
Jan 09 2018

Washington—Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the transcript of Glenn Simpson’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee with the support of committee Democrats. Simpson is the co-founder of Fusion GPS.

“After speaking with majority and minority committee staff for 10 hours, Glenn Simpson requested the transcript of his interview be released publicly. The American people deserve the opportunity to see what he said and judge for themselves,” said Senator Feinstein. “The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice. The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public.”

The transcript is available here and corrections made after the transcript was finalized are available here.

Fusion GPS founder told Senate investigators the FBI had a whistleblower in Trump’s network

The British ex-spy who authored a dossier of allegations against then-presidential candidate Donald Trump was told the FBI had someone inside Trump’s network providing agents with information, according to a newly-released transcript of a congressional interview.

Glenn R. Simpson, founder of research firm Fusion GPS, spoke to investigators with the Senate Judiciary Committee for 10 hours in August. As the partisan fight over Russian interference in the 2016 election has intensified, Simpson has urged that his testimony be released, and a copy of the transcript was made public Tuesday.

It was released by the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California. That decision marks the most serious break yet in the once cooperative relationship she has had with the Republican chairman of the committee, Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa). ...

Steele first reached out to the FBI with his concerns in early July, according to people familiar with the matter. When they re-interviewed him in early October, agents made it clear, according to Simpson’s testimony released Tuesday, that they believed some of what Steele had told them.

“My understanding was that they believed Chris at this point — that they believed Chris might be credible because they had other intelligence that indicated the same thing and one of those pieces of intelligence was a human source from inside the Trump organization,” Simpson said. Using the parlance of spies and law enforcement officials, Simpson said the FBI had a “walk-in’’ whistleblower from someone in Trump’s organization.
