Trump slams 'Sneaky Dianne Feinstein' for releasing Fusion founder's testimony

U.S. Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein on Tuesday released testimony from the founder of the Fusion GPS firm that researched President Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation and produced a dossier denounced by the White House.

Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson had asked that a transcript of his 10 hours of testimony before Senate Judiciary Committee staff be made public, Feinstein said.

The California Democrat rebuked Trump's tweet suggesting that she broke the law by releasing Simpson's testimony. "Must have tough Primary!", President Trump wrote on Twitter.

Simpson had hired Steele, whom he describes as a "Boy Scout", because he wanted to know why Trump had spent so much time in Russian Federation despite saying he had no business dealings there.

Fusion GPS is now being investigated by the Senate Judiciary Committee for the controversial dossier it produced on then-presidential candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 elections. "This was, to me, this was like, you know, you're driving to work and you see something happen and you call 911, right?"

Grassley said Feinstein's decision to release the testimony was "confounding". Chuck Grassley, the committee's chairman, calling on him to release the transcript of the committee's interview with Simpson, but Grassley refused to do so.

"It's been in the news a lot lately that people who get in the way of the Russians tend to get hurt", Simpson said. Shortly after, Feinstein released the transcript.

Trump has derided the dossier as a politically motivated hit job.

Several Republican-led committees are now probing whether the document formed the basis for the FBI's initial investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential race.

Simpson has also spoken with investigators from the House and Senate intelligence committees, which have their own investigations into Russia's election interference.

The disclosure raises questions about whether McCain knew that the information he delivered to the intelligence community was actually an opposition document reportedly funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Feinstein expressed a healthy skepticism that Trump could turn things around.

Feinstein has on multiple occasions publicly stated that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, is up for re-election this year and has served in the Senate since 1992. They've continued to insist in a manner more indefensible than ever that the Fusion GPS intelligence and everything associated with it, is somehow a joint Hillary Clinton and Federal Bureau of Investigation conspiracy.
