Feinstein blames 'bad cold' for handling of Fusion GPS transcript

"Crooked Hillary" and "Pocahontas" are now joined by "Sneaky Dianne Feinstein", who Trump described as "underhanded" for disclosing details behind a controversial dossier allegedly tying the president to Russian Federation during his campaign.

A U.S. Democratic senator has released testimony from the founder of the Fusion GPS firm that researched Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation during the 2016 election campaign and produced a dossier. Republicans initially opposed the release, but Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat, ultimately made it happen.

The release of the transcripts earlier this week apparently upset Trump, who suggested on Wednesday morning that Feinstein had possibly committed a crime.

Mittenthal added: "This is not the first time Trump's personal lawyer has attacked the free press, and we look forward to defending our First Amendment rights in court".

But in a London libel case, Steele said he was expressly told to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 US election. Feinstein said last week she wasn't consulted on the referral and called it an attempt to deflect attention.

Grassley said the transcript would have eventually been released once the investigation was complete. "The Russia investigation, meanwhile, didn't turn out to be some minor side story but instead the central challenge to Mr. Trump's presidency".

"The one thing I regret is that I didn't have a chance to talk to him before", she told TheDC, when asked about Grassley. They will all be disgraced as slimy traitors in the eyes of the entire world and of history in perpetuity.

"Her action undermines the integrity of the committee's oversight work and jeopardizes its ability to secure candid voluntary testimony relating to the independent recollections of future witnesses", Foy said. Steele sent a series of memos to Fusion and Simpson said he concluded that "something bigger was going on". But preventing the public revelation of the company's defense of that document makes the conversation one-sided.

Mr. Morell said he did some digging after reading the dossier's 35 pages, which alleged a massive conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence.

Neither committee had intentions of releasing the transcripts from its interview with Mr. Simpson.

Ms Feinstein also sits on the Senate intelligence committee, which is conducting its own investigation into the Russian interference and whether Mr Trump's campaign was in any way involved.

Also Wednesday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, and FBI Director Christopher Wray were on Capitol Hill to speak to Warner and the Republican chairman of the Senate intelligence panel, North Carolina Sen.
