The president watched Fox & Friends and tweeted Tuesday morning...

He was quoting former congressman Jason Chaffetz, who appeared on the show and said, "The dossier we have long known is bogus. The question is, how was it funded? And that question has not been answered yet."

Follow the money:

  • The dossier — which contains salacious but unverified claims about Russian intelligence officers possessing video tapes of Trump's conduct in a Moscow hotel room — was prepared by former British intelligence officer Christoper Steele, who was sought out by Washington-based investigative firm Fusion GPS.
  • Fusion GPS was initially hired by the Free Beacon, whose owner supported Marco Rubio's candidacy, to collect damaging information about Trump.
  • After it became clear Trump would be the nominee, a lawyer representing Clinton and the DNC enlisted Fusion GPS, which in turn sought out Steele's services.
  • The FBI agreed to pay Steele to continue his work after the election, but ultimately backed out when Steele was identified publicly.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) announced Monday that the House will not hold any floor votes until Sept. 14, though members will remain on 24-hour notice to return to Washington in case a deal on coronavirus stimulus is reached.

Why it matters: Democrats and the Trump administration remain deadlocked and have not met since negotiations broke down without a deal on Friday.

President Trump tweeted Monday that he'll deliver his speech accepting the Republican nomination for president at either the Gettysburg battlefield in Pennsylvania or at the White House.

The state of play: Republican National Convention planners are looking for a new venue for the president to deliver his acceptance speech after convention events were canceled in Jacksonville, Fla., due to coronavirus concerns.
