THANKS, MR. STEELE:

Investigators probe European travel of Trump associates : Questions linger about 2016 trips by Donald Trump Jr., Carter Page, Michael Cohen and other Trump associates. 9JOSH MEYER 12/06/2017, Politico)

Congressional investigators are scrutinizing trips to Europe taken last year by several associates of President Donald Trump, amid concern they may have met with Kremlin-linked operatives as part of Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election. [...]

When a House Intelligence Committee member asked Page last month about his end-of-summer 2016 visit to Budapest, for instance, Page initially said he "did a lot of sightseeing and went to a jazz club. Not much to report."

Under further questioning, Page admitted to meeting with a Hungarian government official who some congressional investigators suspect is an intelligence officer and cryptically offered that "there may have been one Russian person passing through there."

Trump Jr. flew to Paris late in the campaign to meet with and speak before a foreign policy group with ties to Russian officials. Cohen traveled three times to Europe last year, though he strongly denies the claim in a controversial dossier on Donald Trump's Russia connections that he met secretly with a Russian official in Prague.

At this point, it seems inevitable that even the most scurrilous parts of the dossier will be proved.
