Rep. Devin Nunes is trying to determine how far and wide the unverified Russia-Trump dossier spread inside the U.S. government, especially among senior leaders in President Obama’s administration during the 2016 election.

The chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released a letter Tuesday that is being sent to as many as two dozen senior leaders in the Trump and Obama administrations.

The California Republican is asking 10 questions to gauge who received the dossier information and what they did with it.

The dossier, funded by Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party and written by British ex-spy Christopher Steele, was circulated by paymaster Fusion GPS during the 2016 campaign.

Mr. Steele, relying on Kremlin sources, made a series of felony charges plus several salacious claims against Mr. Trump and his aides. None to date have been confirmed publicly.

The letter’s recipients are redacted. But it is assumed they are going to be such leading Obama administrations officials as CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
