Congressional investigators are struggling to track down an alleged source for some of the most salacious claims made in the Steele dossier.
Congressional committees investigating Russian interference in the presidential campaign have tried for months to track down Sergei Millian, a Belarus-born translator who serves as chairman for a small trade group called the Russian-American Chamber of Commerce, ABC News reported.
Millian was identified by The Wall Street Journal, ABC News and The Washington Post in 2017 as the unwitting source for some of the dossier’s most jarring and unverified allegations, including that the Kremlin is blackmailing President Donald Trump and that members of the campaign coordinated with Russian operatives.
Millian is reportedly referred to as “Source D” and “Source E” — and described as a “close associate of Trump” — in the dossier, which was written by former British spy Christopher Steele.
