Trump slams 'sneaky' Feinstein over Russian Federation info release

Trump slams 'sneaky' Feinstein over Russian Federation info release

"The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice", she said in a statement, referring to allegations of ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

He made the comment in an interview with the Senate Judiciary Committee in August.

In releasing the Simpson transcript on Tuesday, however, Feinstein has taken away some of the advantage that Republican majorities enjoyed before.

Eventually, Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele, a former British spy who had worked in Russian Federation in the 1990s, to reach out to his sources there.

Last week, Grassley and fellow Republican Sen. Simpson acknowledged that he didn't like Trump as a candidate but said his job was to find facts, not to push an agenda.

Simpson said Steele first shared his concerns with the Federal Bureau of Investigation during the first week of July 2016 and in a subsequent meeting with the Rome official two months later when Steele provided the official "a full briefing" of his findings.

The transcript of the interview was released on Tuesday.

CNN reports that Simpson also talked down Trump's claims that the contents of the dossier were "totally made up" and "phony".

"(The FBI) believed Chris's information might be credible because they had other intelligence that indicated the same thing and one of those pieces of intelligence was a human source from inside the Trump Organization", Simpson told the committee.

"The transcript of Glenn Simpson's lengthy responses to the Senate Judiciary Committee's questioning speaks for itself", Fusion GPS said.

Simpson later clarified that he was uncertain whether that source was a member of Trump's campaign or his business, the Trump Organization.

I hope this is a sign that we will see more news, but remember what Red said, "Hope is a risky thing". The official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account just ended more than four years of silence.

Several people familiar with the probe said Simpson's comments refer to a report from an Australian official who contacted US officials in late July with concerns about a conversation months earlier in London with Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos.

During Simpson's interview in August, a Republican staffer pressed him further on this claim, and Simpson's answers were vague.

The allegations in the dossier are unverified and have come under scrutiny by Republicans.

His dossier began circulating among journalists during the second half of 2016 before exploding into public view in January past year when it emerged that Mr Trump had been told of its existence. Trump has derided the dossier as a politically motivated hit job.

A source close to Fusion GPS, however, told NBC that the Trump-team source did not exist.

The transcript is likely to provide Democrats a counterargument to the Republican charges that the dossier was a political document paid for by Clinton's presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Democrats seem interested in revealing only what adds to their hope that Donald Trump canoodled with the Kremlin.

For other critics, the Simpson transcript includes a reminder about his potentially conflicting incentives: Fusion GPS has also done work for a law firm that represented the Russian company Prevezon Holdings.

The diplomat then relayed this information to American officials, sparking the FBI investigation into the Trump campaign.

Feinstein countered by releasing the Simpson transcript, a move that at least one senior Republican applauded.

Simpson has testified for more than 20 hours before three congressional committees regarding his firm's role in commissioning the report.
