Trump suggests Republicans 'finally take control' of Russian Federation probe

Gage Skidmore

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee says he wants to interview the President's daughter as part of the panel's Russian Federation investigation, along with other witnesses who Republicans aren't inviting.

In that testimony, Simpson said the former British intelligence who authored the dossier was so concerned about discovering Russia's possible attempts to blackmail Trump that he took his findings to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Feinstein, the top Democrat on the panel, released the transcript of Glenn Simpson's interview over the objections of the committee's Republican chairman, Iowa Sen.

"You want other people to voluntarily comply?" "It weakens our chance of getting information".

Among the major topics still of interest to Schiff: the 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russian operatives that occurred after Trump Jr. was told he would get dirt on the Clinton campaign and that the Russian government wanted to see his father win the presidency.

Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, fired back Thursday. Florida Rep. Tom Rooney, one of several Republicans leading the intelligence committee probe, has said it's time for the investigation to wind down.

"There are witnesses who have knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting and what it was about prior to the meeting that have not been brought before our committee", Schiff told reporters. Grassley and Feinstein also pledged last spring to work together on the Judiciary committee's probe. The committee's practice is not to comment on specific witnesses or the schedule for testimony at non-public hearings.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 80.35 points, or 0.31 percent, to 25,655.08. Advancing issues outnumbered decliners on the NYSE by 1,462 to 1,035.

In response, Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong said it "would be irresponsible" not to "put forward the results of the investigation sooner rather than later", in keeping with the objective of "identifying Russian Federation meddling in our election and preventing it in the future". He said that the House Intelligence Committee has spoken to 56 witnesses, fewer than half of the number in the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The President also took the opportunity to attack his former Democratic political opponent Hillary Clinton, and insisted any collusion that's happened has been between Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, and the Russians. But it is unclear whether their investigation will conclude soon enough to serve as a cautionary lesson for future election cycles, which experts believe will be as susceptible to foreign meddling as the 2016 presidential contest was.

The committee has not been investigating allegations concerning the president or anomalies of the 2016 US elections.

The GOP has agreed to bring in a handful of witnesses so far this year, including former senior Trump aide Steve Bannon, who is expected before the panel next week.

Republicans say there hasn't been proof yet on collusion, and they blame Democrats for trying to drag out the investigations and chase what they say are false leads.

"President Trump must be clear-eyed about the Russian threat, take action to strengthen our government's response and our institutions, and - as have other presidents in times of crisis - mobilize our country and work with an global coalition to counter the threat and assert our values", Cardin said. "The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public".
