Sen. Chuck Grassley sent a letter to the firm that authored the controversial dossier on President Donald Trump, requesting answers to more than 20 questions and background information.

Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent the three-page letter Friday to Fusion GPS, asking Glenn Simpson a series of questions about the opposition research the firm did on Trump.

"When political opposition research becomes the basis for law enforcement or intelligence efforts, it raises substantial questions about the independence of law enforcement and intelligence from politics," Grassley wrote to Simpson.

Among the questions Grassley posed to Simpson/Fusion:

  • Who was first and who all hired "your company to conduct opposition research relating to Mr. Trump and his associates?"
  • When did Fusion GPS arrange for Mr. (Christopher) Steele and/or Orbis Business Intelligence to investigate Mr. Trump and his associates?
  • Did anyone from Fusion GPS instruct, request, suggest, or imply that Mr. Steele should provide the dossier to the FBI or otherwise contact the FBI regarding the investigation?
  • Was Fusion GPS aware of efforts to have the FBI pay Mr. Steele for his investigation?
  • When did Mr. Steele first communicate with the FBI regarding his investigation of Mr. Trump and his associates?

Grassley wrote to Simpson that he'd like answers by April 7.
