Trump Today: President questions if Federal Bureau of Investigation paid for dossier alleging Russian Federation ties

Also on Twitter on Saturday afternoon, Trump weighed in again on another Russia-related topic: an intelligence dossier that alleged ties between Russian Federation and Trump's presidential campaign.

Donald Trump, having returned from his 74th trip to one of his golf courses since January, took to Twitter early Saturday evening to further downplay the severity of Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump is referring to news of two executives from Fusion GPS who chose to remain silent yesterday during a private meeting with the House Intelligence Committee.

A special counsel looking into whether Russian Federation tried to sway the 2016 United States election, led by former FBI director Robert Mueller, has since taken over the investigation.

President Donald Trump on Saturday seemingly downplayed the significance of Russian-bought Facebook ads, which some lawmakers investigating election meddling have said were meant to influence last year's campaign and divide Americans. Fusion GPS says they have promised confidentiality to their clients and to violate that obligation would harm their business model.

In September 2015, Fusion GPS began their investigation into Trump - on behalf of an anonymous Republican donor, hoping to prevent the political outsider from becoming the Republican nominee for president. The firm's founder, Glenn Simpson, had previously given a 10-hour interview to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Earlier this month, it was reported that the investigation into the dossier had been taken up by the man leading the FBI's Russian Federation probe, Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Suggesting that a federal intelligence service coordinated with a foreign power to produce a dossier about him is just Trump's latest explosive and unsubstantiated accusation.
