C: I have never met him. I hadn't remembered him until Tom Hamburger called me in August, saying there's supposedly some email...I stuck the text of the email into my search inbox, and found I was one of many people on that email chain.
C: I believe that was the first one. Whatever it says in the complaint, [March 31, 2016], I believe that's the only thing I got. I only had a few emails in my inbox from him.
J: Christopher Steele.
C: You know, I didn't know who it was until it was revealed in January. But I got word in September.
C: No, I actually had a previously scheduled meeting with some top U.S. military officers thousands of miles away. That was the only time our committee got together with then-candidate Trump, and I missed my one chance.
T: I didn't know the dossier existed at the time. It was about a newspaper report.
C: It was an online report, yes.
