- Trey Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee implied that Sidney Blumenthal, one of Hillary Clinton's close confidants, indirectly informed the author of the Russia dossier.
- Gowdy did not say Blumenthal's name when he made the comment during a Fox News interview on Tuesday night, but said "That would be really warm. You're warm," when a network host asked Gowdy if he was referring to Blumenthal.
- Republicans released a much-maligned memo last week that attempted to uncover improper surveillance of a former Trump campaign adviser. The memo has largely fallen flat. Its author, the House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, said he has more memos in the works.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., seemed to suggest Tuesday that Clinton ally Sidney Blumenthal was connected to the controversial, unverified "Trump dossier," allegedly feeding details to a State Department employee during the last months of the Obama administration.
"When you hear who the source or one of the sources of that information is, you're going to think, 'Oh my gosh, I've heard that name somewhere before. Where could it possibly have been?'" Gowdy told Fox News' Martha MacCallum.
