President Donald Trump hinted he knew the name of the mysterious Republican donor who kicked off the Fusion GPS investigation of the fake Russia dossier that was widely spread around political and media circles.
“I think I would know but I won’t say,” Trump said in response to questions from reporters at the White House, “If I were to guess, I have one name in mind.”

The president indicated that the name would surface as part of an ongoing court case surrounding the deal.
Trump said that Hillary Clinton and the Democrats finally came clean about the dossier in response to an investigation about the details about it.
“Hillary Clinton always denied it, the Democrats always denied it, and now only because it’s going to come out in a court case they said, ‘Yes, they did it,” he said.
Trump said that it was sad that politics had become so vicious, calling the dossier “fake” and “made up.”
“They’re embarrassed by it,” he said. “I think it’s a disgrace.”
