Sen Feinstein Release of Fusion GPS Testimony Disgrace, Possibly Illegal

Republicans have argued that the tangled history of Fusion GPS's research - it was first backed by anti-Trump Republicans and then by Democrats during the 2016 race - raised doubts about the credibility of investigations into whether any of Trump's aides assisted Russia's efforts to meddle in the election. Chuck Grassley, who chairs the Judiciary Committee, said Ms. Feinstein's actions were "confounding".

Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson sat for 10 hours of interviews with the committee staff in August, but until Tuesday, the panel's Republican leaders had kept the transcript private.

US President Donald Trump has slammed Senator Dianne Feinstein's decision to release the transcript of testimony from the Fusion GPS CEO as a disgrace.

"The fact that Sneaky Dianne Feinstein, who has on numerous occasions stated that collusion between Trump/Russia has not been found, would release testimony in such an underhanded and possibly illegal way, totally without authorization, is a disgrace", President Trump wrote. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, referred Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer who compiled a dossier with allegations concerning President Trump and Russian Federation, to the Justice Department for investigation.

Dianne Feinstein is learning what it's like to be on the receiving end of President Trump's fury.

Steele briefed an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent in July 2016. And in deep blue, Democrat-dominated California, that's just the kind of image Feinstein wants to cultivate as she seeks to win yet another term this fall. Sheldon Whitehouse and Richard Blumenthal sent a letter to Republican Sen.

A separate investigation by the House Intelligence Committee led by chairman Devin Nunes is trying to establish whether opposition research from Fusion GPS on Trump formed the basis of the FBI's investigation into allegations that Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation. Shortly after, Feinstein released the transcript. "Republicans should finally take control!"

The special counsel's team of investigators has expressed interest in speaking with Trump, but no details have been worked out.
