Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia Probe Looking Into Controversial Dossier




Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly including a controversial opposition research dossier by a former British intelligence officer that linked President Trump to Russia as part of his probe into ties between the Trump administration and Russia.

Three sources with knowledge of the probe told Reuters that Mueller’s investigators have assumed control of multiple inquiries into allegations that the Kremlin sought to interfere in the election to benefit Trump.

The U.S. intelligence community has said they took the allegations made in the dossier seriously.

Officials familiar with the investigations told Reuters that both Mueller’s team and the Senate Intelligence Committee are seeking evidence that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort or others with financial ties to Russia helped Moscow target email hacking and social media postings undermining Hillary Clinton’s candidacy.
