On Friday Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) sent a batch of letters to DNC leaders demanding information regarding their interactions with dossier author Christopher Steele.
The Senate Judiciary Committee is investigating the FBI’s involvement with dossier author Christopher Steele. It is being reported the FBI relied on the phony, Hillary-funded Russia dossier to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Trump’s campaign during the 2016 presidential election.
The batch of letters were sent to former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former interim DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile, current DNC chair, Tom Perez, former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and former Clinton campaign chief strategist Joel Benenson.

Grassley and Graham cited the bombshell Washington Post report released in October of 2016 revealing Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC funded the garbage Russia dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.
In early January Grassley and Graham also sent a letter to Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray Friday demanding they investigate if Christopher Steele lied to federal authorities.
The letter to John Podesta was released to the public and it looks really bad for Hillary’s former campaign chairman.
Here is a sampling of the 12 questions Podesta must answer and return to Congress.
2.) Did you or anyone else at Hillary for America receive copies of any ofthe memoranda comprising Mr. Steele’s dossier prior to its publication by Buzzfeein January of 2017? If so, how and when? Please provide all related documents.
5.) Did you or anyone else at Hillary for America distribute outside of the organization any of the dossier memoranda, information contained therein, or other information obtained by Mr. Steele?
6.) Did you or anyone else at Hillary for America communicate with any government officials -whether in the executive, legislative or judicial branches -regarding the dossier memoranda, information contained therein, or other information obtained by Mr. Steele? If so, please list the parties involved in the communication, the content of the communication, and the date and means of the communication. Please provide all related documents.
7.) Did you or anyone else at Hillary for America instruct, request, suggest, or imply that any individuals should pass along information to Mr. Steele or his intermediaries? Please provide all related documents.
8.) Did you or anyone else at Hillary for America communicate with members of the press regarding the dossier memoranda, information contained therein, or other information obtained by Mr. Steele? If so, please list the parties involved in the communication…
10.) Were you or anyone else at Hillary for America aware of Mr. Steele s contacts with the FBI or other government agencies prior to the 2016 election? If so, who?
This doesn’t look good for the Hillary campaign, the FBI or the DOJ.
