Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that he and the other leaders on the House intelligence committee's Russia investigation want to meet with former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele who authored a dossier on President Donald Trump containing incendiary allegations, reports CNN.
Schiff made his comments on CNN's "State of the Union" after news broke that two Republican staffers on the committee traveled to Britain to try and sit down with Steele. Schiff said that he hadn't been aware of the trip, and that he believed Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), the Republican leading the investigation, wasn't aware either.
"I wasn't aware of it. I don't think Mr. Conaway was either. But the reality is we do want to meet with Mr. Steele," said Schiff.
Steele's dossier includes allegations concerning Donald Trump's associates personal life, and finances. Trump has said that the dossier's contents are "phony."
