Rubio Leaps To Top Democrat's Defense Over Texts To Russian Oligarch's Lobbyist

So we've got the top Dem investigating Trump and Steele passing messages to each other through a Russian oligarch's lobbyist with ties to the Clintons.

"I'm in", Waldman, whose firm has ties to Hillary Clinton, texted back to Warner.

"Warner did not want a "paper trail" on a "private" meeting (in London) he requested with Steele of fraudulent Dossier fame".

Warner appears to have tried to keep secret his contacts with the lobbyist, saying in one text he would "rather not have a paper trail". Warner is the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee that is investigating the Trump campaign's purported ties to Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election.

Yes, Sen. Warner did, because he was trying to get an agreement for Steele to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee and GASP, the Republican chairman of the committee knew about it.




Early last March, Steele's friends said publicly that he would be willing to meet with members of Congress in the UK.

Donald Trump responded to the story tweeting, "Wow!" "Leaks of incomplete information out of context by anyone, inside or outside our committee, are unacceptable".

Rubio revealed that Warner had already informed the committee of the contacts and indicated it was not a big deal to the rest of the committee.

The Florida Republican has been a rare source of support for Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE's special counsel investigation in recent months amid mounting Republican criticism against the FBI and Mueller's team of prosecutors over the Russian Federation investigation and perceived bias against the president.

He also made it clear "he wanted to talk to Steele directly without Burr or anyone else being involved, even though Steele was insisting through Waldman that the contact start with a bipartisan letter inviting him to cooperate with the Senate panel", Fox reported. The trip was first reported a year ago soon after it happened. Mr. Waldman apparently said he could put Mr. Warner in touch with Mr. Steele, according to text messages obtained by Fox News. Fox News ran an "exclusive" report that claimed that Sen.
