Feinstein on Trump Statements

Glenn Simpson co-founder of the research firm Fusion GPS testified that a Trump Organization official voluntarily reached out to the FBI

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.

In recent weeks, as the political fights about the Russian Federation investigation and the dossier have intensified, Simpson has urged the committee to release the full transcript of his interview, arguing that Republicans are trying to obscure, rather than reveal, what happened in 2016.

Speaking with reporters Wednesday, Feinstein brushed off Trump's attacks, noting that her release of the unclassified transcript was not illegal. "Must have tough Primary!"

Simpson, founder of research firm Fusion GPS, spoke to investigators with the Senate Judiciary Committee for 10 hours in August.

Trump also repeated that the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election is a "Witch Hunt" and says "Republicans should finally take control!"

Simpson also defended Steele, saying that the well-respected former intelligence officer "has a sterling reputation as a person who doesn't exaggerate, doesn't make things up, doesn't sell baloney". Feinstein's unilateral action seems to reflect Democrat partisanship in the ongoing civil war against the Trump presidency. Chuck Grassley first. Fox News' Laura Ingraham asked her guests on Wednesday's "The Ingraham Angle" if Feinstein indeed broke the law, and the consensus was a resounding "no". The bureau launched its investigation into the Trump campaign in late July, according to former FBI director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyTrump: Dershowitz interview on "witch hunt" a "must watch" Comey after Trump tweet: FBI is honest, strong, independent Former ethics director: Trump's tweet on Flynn would have ended past administrations MORE.

Almost 2000 Palestinians Clash With Israeli Forces in Gaza, West Bank

Trump, the Republicans, and Trump's inner circle have been hard at work to discredit the dossier as politically motivated and too much a linchpin of the FBI investigation.

Whitehouse stressed that Simpson himself wanted the transcript made public, saying doing so would be refute the accusations against him. She was only concerned that she hadn't notified Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, beforehand.

I didn't originally agree or disagree, I just put it off and said I needed to think about it. In the op-ed, they called for the transcripts of Simpson's congressional testimony to be released.

Also, according to Simpson, Steele was so horrified by what he was finding that he contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation instead of just reporting back to his Clintonian masters.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, also in the meeting, confirmed Trump's comments to fellow South Carolina Republican Sen. "Republicans should finally take control!"

Later in the testimony, Simpson clarified that he couldn't say for sure whether the source was from the Trump Organization or the Trump campaign.
