Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, and former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz privately denied to congressional Russian Federation investigators that they had any knowledge about an arrangement to pay for opposition research on Trump, three sources familiar with the matter told CNN earlier this week.
'Never seen such Republican ANGER & UNITY as I have concerning the lack of investigation on Clinton made Fake Dossier (now $12,000,000?) the Uranium to Russian Federation deal, plus 33,000 plus deleted Emails, the Comey fix and so much more, ' Trump began.
CNN reported in January that senior United States intelligence officials briefed then-President Barack Obama and President-elect Trump about the dossier just weeks before Trump's inauguration.
As evidence of Democratic scandals has mounted, Republicans are coming together in anger and concern, says President Trump. "There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out".

And in an almost-Halloween-themed tweet, Trump claimed that the investigation only focused on collusion allegations between Trump and Russian Federation because Democrats were using "this awful (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics". Rob Portman, R-Ohio, said Trump had been "too defensive" about Mueller's inquiry.
Trump, in a follow-up tweet, anxious that all the Russian Federation talk may be overtaking the Republicans' agenda on Capitol Hill.
In a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Washington Monday obtained by the Law Newz website, Fusion's GPS's lawyer, Josh Levy, alleges that members of the committee had leaked information from the investigation.
A conservative publication, the Washington Free Beacon announced late Friday it had earlier hired Fusion GPS to do research on Trump and other Republican candidates during the presidential primaries - but before the firm hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to do research that led to the dossier.
Langer said Saturday that "the Beacon has agreed to cooperate with the House Intelligence Committee to help the Committee verify" that the outlet had no connection to Steele's dossier.More news: Jose Mourinho disclose aspirations of managing worldwide side
Several of the individuals involved in the uranium scandal are central to the Russian Federation investigation, including former FBI Director James Comey, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and special counsel for the Russian Federation investigation Robert Mueller.
In her interview Sunday, Collins also said Perkins Coie attorney Marc Elias should be brought back to speak with the intelligence committee.
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 alleged collusion between Trump and Russian Federation became the focal point of the research after it was taken over by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). But the State Department has only one seat on the panel that approved the transaction, and the New York Times has reported that Clinton did not participate in the decision.More news: 76ers guard Markelle Fultz out indefinitely
