Looking for the Pee Tape Dossier's Author

A pair of Republican staffers on the House intelligence committee flew to London recently to try to find a way to bring the author of a dossier containing explosive allegations about President Donald Trump and top members of his campaign before the panel, sources familiar with the trip have told CNN.

They didn't find him, apparently.
The trip by House Republican staff investigating Russian interference in the US election touched off a spat behind the scenes at the Capitol because Democrats on the investigation were kept in the dark, according to a separate source familiar with the trip.
Oh-ho. What was that for if not something nefarious?
But another source downplayed anger from Democrats on the House committee and Senate staff who were also seeking Steele, saying that it was not coordinated with them because the House Republican staffers' orders were to find a contact for Steele's lawyer -- not directly interview Steele in London or try to schedule an interview with Steele there.
Really? They don't have telephones that reach to London?
Last month, the Senate Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena for Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of Fusion GPS, the political firm that contracted Steele in compiling the dossier of unverified information for Trump's political opponents, prompting Simpson to agree to testify in private before the panel.
Seems like a likely candidate for putting them in touch with Steele's attorney.

 ...but hey, do what you want...you will anyway.
