Transcript of interview with Fusion GPS co-founder Released by House panel

 After revelations that Steele’s work was funded, indirectly, by the Clinton campaign, McCain told POLITICO that he had no regrets about delivering the dossier to Comey.

Simpson then recounted, with new detail, the tale of how the Steele dossier reached the desk of then-FBI Director James Comey after the 2016 election — delivered personally by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
He said Steele bumped into longtime McCain aide David Kramer at a conference in Nova Scotia and ended up discussing the dossier. Later, Kramer followed up with Steele.
Simpson said Kramer told him that McCain wanted to "ask questions about it at the FBI. ... All we sort of wanted was for the government to do its job and we were concerned about whether the information that we provided previously had ever, you know, risen to the leadership level of the FBI."
"It was our belief that Director Comey if he was aware — if he was made aware of this information would treat it seriously,” he added.
