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

In particular, the document alleged that the Russian government had collected compromising information about Trump, which has been denounced by the USA president and called a forgery by Moscow. Dianne Feinstein of being "underhanded and a disgrace" for disclosing details of a dossier of allegations about his ties to Russian Federation during the campaign. "Must have tough Primary!", President Trump wrote on Twitter. 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.

Ms. Feinstein, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the testimony of Glenn Simpson, Fusion GPS co-founder, on Tuesday to prove there was no political motivation behind the inquiry into Mr. Trump or his campaign.

Feinstein said at the time, "I wasn't consulted about this referral, nor were any of my Democratic colleagues".

Feinstein, who is running for re-election in November, has issued a flurry of news releases to announce her requests to current and former members of Trump's campaign team for interviews and documents. Chuck Grassley, who had previously refused to release the contents of the interview.

A spokesman for Grassley called Feinstein's release of the testimony "totally confounding".

That's an argument GOP lawmakers who want a deal are making to Trump to convince him he has maximum leverage now that will wane. The Department of Homeland Security did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday.

"There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes".

Among the most startling statements made during Simpson's interview was when he said that "somebody's already been killed" as a result of the dossier's publication.

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.

The investigation led by special prosecutor Robert S. Mueller III has so far led to a guilty plea from Trump former national security adviser Michael Flynn and charges against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

State Senate President Kevin de León launched a primary challenge against Feinstein in October, hoping to ride that progressive anger to an upset victory in November.
