Audio clip:

Chairman of Select Committee on Intelligence, Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA), spoke with Brian Kilmeade about the latest revelations on who is behind the Fusion GPS dossier on President Trump and why it is a stretch to say a republican is behind the Russian Fusion GPS dossier,

Chairman Nunes on GOP involvement with the Russian dossier:

KILMEADE: DO YOU KNOW WHO THE REPUBLICAN IS AND CAN YOU SHARE IT THAT STARTED, PRE-CHRIS STEELE, TO GET THE OPPOSITION RESEARCH?

NUNES: YOU KNOW WHAT, THIS IS A FUN LITTLE POINT. THERE IS ALL THIS TALK ABOUT THE REPUBLICAN, THE SUPPOSED REPUBLICANS, THAT PAID FUSION GPS TO START THIS. I DON'T KNOW IF THAT IS TRUE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE, I MEAN, I DON'T DOUBT THAT REPUBLICANS WOULD HIRE FUSION GPS TO DO OPPOSITION RESEARCH, BUT IF YOU BELIEVE THE WASHINGTON POST STORY ON THIS, THIS GOES BACK TO THE SPRING OF 2016 WHEN HILLARY CAMPAIGN AND THE DNC BEGAN TO PAY FUSION GPS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS DOSSIER AND THIS DOSSIER DIDN'T APPEAR UNTIL THE SUMMER. I DON'T KNOW IF ANY REPUBLICAN HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE ACTUAL DOSSIER. IT'S POSSIBLE REPUBLICANS PAID THEM FOR OPPOSITION RESEARCH BUT I THINK IT IS A STRETCH TO SAY THAT A REPUBLICAN WAS INVOLVED WITH THE DOSSIER.
