Nunes New Approach in Getting Info From Officials On Steele Dossier 

The Steele Dossier is being approached from a different direction for House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes. For all it’s notoriety, there is still not been a release of the contents, only bits and pieces. The bits and pieces were released and timed so as to do as much damage to President Donald Trump as was possible. 

 Now the head of the Intelligence Committee is taking a different approach. There are some current and former government officials being asked to provide dossier information. It is not clear what the questions are, exactly. What is clear from the Chairman is that expedient answers will be forthcoming or there will be some compulsory appearances before the Committee. 

As Written and Reported By Chuck Ross for the Daily Caller:

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes sent letters Tuesday to more than a dozen current and former U.S. government officials asking about their knowledge of the infamous Steele dossier.

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…..
