The top lawyer for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign told House Intelligence Committee investigators that he was aware of Fusion GPS's plans to have British ex-spy Christopher Steele brief reporters about his controversial anti-Trump research during the 2016 contest.
The December 2017 testimony of Marc Elias, the Clinton campaign's general counsel, was revealed through the release of dozens of Russia investigation witness interviews last week. Elias, the head of the Perkins Coie political law group, hired Fusion on behalf of the campaign.
Then-Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina asked whether Elias knew that Fusion sent Steele to talk to media outlets during 2016, and Elias said he was "aware that he talked to media outlets in that time period" and admitted that he knew about the meetings before they happened. He said he was not involved in deciding which journalists Steele would meet but was present when the discussions setting up the meetings happened. He said the decision by Fusion GPS may have been made during a meeting at his Washington office.
DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitzs December report criticized the Justice Department and the FBI for at least 17 significant errors and omissions related to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and for the bureau's reliance on Steeles dossier.
