But the Free Beacon said all the material it was provided came from public sources and that the effort was separate from a former British spy's dossier of allegations of Russian financial and personal links to President Donald Trump's campaign and associates.
In the latter investigation, Republicans say they want to know why then-FBI Director James Comey publicly announced that the bureau was investigating Clinton but waited months before making a similar announcement about its inquiries into the Trump campaign. "There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out".
The investigation that turned up a dossier allegedly linking Donald Trump to Russian Federation began at the behest of a conservative website owned by a supporter of Marco Rubio, it has emerged. The FBI investigated her use of private email servers and deleted emails when she ran the State Department.
Trump's tweets followed a CNN report late Friday that a federal grand jury in Washington has approved the first charges in a criminal investigation into Russian Federation ties led by special counsel Robert Mueller.
According to court filings in a libel suit against Mr. Steele, the ex-spy said he got specific instructions from Fusion GPS to dig up coordination between Trump people and Russian Federation. The charges are sealed, and it's unclear who could be charged and for what.
Trump slams National Football League for not forcing players to stand for United States anthem
I think we also have to keep focus on this - we have about six or seven players that are involved with this protest at this point. Donald Trump refuses to take a knee when it comes to countering the wave of national anthem protests across the NFL .
Collins' suggestion on Sunday came amid further developments in the special counsel's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election, which coincides with the Senate investigation into meddling.
Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer handling the response to the Russian Federation investigation, said the president's tweets were "unrelated to the activities of the special counsel, with whom he continues to cooperate".
"So I'm going to continue to do that", she said. As part of his inquiry, Mueller is believed to be examining whether there was collusion between Trump's campaign and Moscow, and whether the president obstructed justice when he fired Comey.
Continuing with his tweets, the president resurfaced his views on the controversial dossier about Trump and Russian Federation written by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele for Fusion GPS, a research strategy intelligence firm.
According to the Post's report, lawyer Marc E. Elias, who represented both Clinton's campaign and the DNC, and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the firm Fusion GPS in April 2016 to investigate any connections.

Revelations about the funding of the research into Trump's business, which the House committee was hoping to reveal via subpoena, answered one of the biggest mysteries of the 2016 presidential campaign.
Earlier this month, House and Senate Republican leaders announced they would investigate the uranium deal, and the House Oversight Committee launched a probe into how the FBI investigated Clinton during the campaign.
Democrats have argued that these investigations are meant to distract from the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
The Washington Free Beacon, a conservative online publication backed by billionaire Republican mega-donor Paul Singer, said on Friday it was the original funder of the Fusion GPS project to compile opposition research on multiple Republican presidential candidates, including Trump. But the State Department has only one seat on the panel that approved the transaction, and the New York Times has reported that Clinton did not participate in the decision.
