By Allan Lengel

Chatter surrounding the Trump-Russia probe escalated  Tuesday when a massive transcript was released of Congressional testimony in August from Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS and author of the infamous dossier.

In his testimony, Simpson says the FBI had a source within the Trump organization who verified some of his allegations in the dossier, reports Slate [2].

The key portion from the testimony comes on pages 174 and 175. Simpson testified that Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier that has become a principal target of Trump’s defenders, met with the FBI in September, 2016. According to Simpson, during that meeting the FBI told Steele that they had a human source inside the Trump organization, which was why they were investigating the claims in his own report and taking them seriously, Slate wrote.
