The President also claimed that the firm that put together the dossier invoked their Fifth Amendment rights; however, the firm, Fusion GPS, has not refused outright to discuss its work on the dossier with Congress. Fusion GPS' founder has already met with the Senate Judiciary Committee and reportedly spoke with investigators on special counsel Robert Mueller's probe.

The attorney said the subpoenas violated "the First Amendment rights" of the firm's three founders, adding that they would prevent future candidates "from conducting confidential opposition research in an election".

Allegedly, the Federal Bureau of Investigation never paid Steele.

As for Russian Federation, there isn't any evidence that Moscow was involved in the dossier - and it paints Russian Federation in a nefarious light.
