House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes is turning up the heat on the investigation into the Steele Dossier. On Tuesday Nunes reportedly sent letters to former and current U.S. Government Officials asking about their knowledge of the Steele Dossier.
The Daily Caller reported: In the letters, Nunes submitted 10 questions covering when the officials learned of the dossier and how they handled the salacious and unverified document written by former British spy Christopher Steele.
The identities of the recipients are redacted from the letter, which a congressional source shared with The Daily Caller News Foundation. The recipients were described as “high-ranking” current and former government officials. Between one and two dozen letters were issued.
Nunes, a California Republican, threatened subpoenas if the officials did not comply with the letters.
“If you do not provide timely answers on a voluntary process, the Committee will initiate compulsory process,” he wrote.
In the letters, Nunes asks how the Steele information was presented to the government officials and whether they shared it with anyone else, including reporters.
Nunes is also asking whether the officials took any official action or convened any meetings after receiving the dossier.
The letters also suggest that members of the Obama administration are being pressed for answers. Nunes asks whether President Barack Obama was aware of the dossier prior to Jan. 5, 2017, when he was reportedly briefed by then-FBI Director James Comey about the report. The dossier alleges that Russian government was blackmailing Donald Trump and that members of the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to sway the election.
