In Washington, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday he wants to interview the former British spy who authored a dossier alleging damning ties between Donald Trump and Russia’s government. Congressmember Adam Schiff of California says he’ll seek testimony from Christopher Steele, whose 35-page memo alleges the compromising information could be used by Russia to blackmail the president. Most of Steele’s claims have not been verified. Steele re-emerged from hiding earlier this week, after his disappearance in January following reports about the dossier. Congressmember Schiff also said this week his committee would accept Donald Trump’s call for a congressional investigation into the president’s unsubstantiated claims that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower ahead of November’s election.

Rep. Adam Schiff: “We accept: We will investigate this. The president has said that this is a scandal that dwarfs Watergate, that his predecessor engaged in an illegal wiretap of his campaign. That is one potential scandal. The alternative is a different kind of a scandal, and that is a scandal of a sitting U.S. president alleging that his predecessor engaged in the most unscrupulous and unlawful conduct. That is also a scandal, if those allegations prove to be false.”
