A document that was obtained by NBC News shows that the DNC, led by former Chairman Tom Perez, is attempting to obtain the contents of a dossier that was commissioned by President Donald Trump in 2018 and released in January 2019.
The document was filed with the Federal Elections Commission on Friday, the same day that it was obtained.
In the filing, the DNC asked for the “full and complete” documents and any supporting documents relating to the dossier, as well as any communications with or records from former FBI Director Robert Mueller and former CIA Director John Brennan.
“I hereby request that the FBI immediately cease and desist from any further activity in connection with the investigation,” the DNC wrote.
The dossier was compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, a former MI6 officer who was paid a $40,000 fee by the Trump campaign to compile a dossier about the Russian government that was based on information gathered by former MI5 officer Christopher Steele and shared with the FBI by the Democratic National Committee.
The Democratic National Convention in July 2020 featured a speech by Democratic nominee for president, Tim Kaine, which featured a section of the speech that contained allegations about the President.
In that section, Kaine was quoted as saying that Russia “did meddle in our election.”
A day later, the dossier was publicly released by BuzzFeed News.
BuzzFeed published the dossier in a story titled “The Man Who Told Trump Russia Was a Dirty Trick.”
In that article, the BuzzFeed writer, Christopher Steele (whose full name is Christopher Bredesen), also claimed that the dossier’s information was corroborated by unnamed people who had been in touch with members of the Trump transition team, including then-White House national security adviser Michael Flynn.
The article also claimed there was evidence that the Trump administration had “repeatedly discussed and tried to influence” the investigation of Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election, and that “this collusion continued even after Trump’s inauguration.”
A number of people have said the allegations against the President were unsubstantiated.
Trump denied the allegations, saying he “never met with any Russians, ever” and was not aware of any such discussions.
He added that “nobody ever interfered with my campaign.”
The Trump transition had initially refused to release any information about the dossier.
However, after BuzzFeed News reported on the allegations in October 2020, the administration began releasing documents related to the case.
The documents show that the Obama administration requested documents on January 22, 2021, the day after Trump won the presidential election.
On that date, the White House asked the FBI to provide the dossier and any related information.
The FBI agreed on May 20, 2021 and released the information on June 22, 2020.
The Trump campaign also began releasing some documents on June 23, 2020, after the Trump White House requested information about its own dossier.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from NBC News.
The DNC filed the document with the FEC on Friday.
It said that the document should be released within 90 days and asked that the information be kept confidential.
The filing comes on the heels of another document that the FEC sent to the DNC last month, this time in response to the same request.
The FEC is required to respond to requests for information from both parties in a timely fashion.
It was not immediately clear when the DNC or the FBI would release the information that was included in the filing.
The Federal Election Commission is responsible for regulating political activity by federal officials, including election law.
It can impose sanctions on officials who violate election laws.
In a statement to NBC News, the FEC did not respond to an inquiry as to why the DNC requested documents that were redacted.
It also did not answer a question about whether the DNC’s request was an attempt to influence the election.
“The FEC cannot, however, investigate the allegations or other matters relating to this matter,” the FEC said in a statement.
The statement continued, “The public has a right to know the full facts about the allegations and the evidence before them.
Accordingly, the agency is prepared to provide a full and complete response to this request within 90 calendar days.”
