Feinstein on Trump Statements

What You Need to Know About Fusion GPS

The dossier was written by a former British intelligence officer, Christopher Steele, under commission by the American political research shop Fusion GPS.

Simpson said Fusion began getting questions from the press about whether the FBI was investigating Trump and "we encouraged them to ask the Federal Bureau of Investigation that question".

"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", Taylor Foy, Mr. Grassley's spokesman, said in a statement. "The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public", she said.

The testimony from Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, released unilaterally by California Democratic Sen.

The leak of the transcript by Feinstein also comes after Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) referred Christopher Steele to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for criminal investigation.

Three separate congressional committees are investigating Russian tampering in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign: the Senate judiciary and intelligence committees, and the House intelligence committee.

Many in the GOP seem convinced that if they can raise doubts about its legitimacy and how the dossier was used (or not used) by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and special counsel Robert Mueller's office, they will somehow be able to taint the entire probe into Trump's past.

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.

Former intelligence agent Christopher Steele took his concerns to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in July 2016, the Senate was told.

The 95-year-old was also accused in the first Daily Mail report of groping nurses and walking around naked in their presence. A representative for the new nursing company caring for Lee said he has been "polite, kind and respectful" to the nurses.

By the time Steele sat down with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in September, an Australian diplomat had passed to USA officials details of his conversation with Papadopoulos, who seemed to know that the Russians possessed hacked Democratic emails. The suit says Fusion GPS "started peddling the dossier to media and journalists" in September 2016 as part of the intended goal of opposition research on then-candidate Trump.

In the latest iteration of her story, Feinstein said her weakened "mental facilities" stemming from a cold made her leak closed-door testimony.

Simpson, the Fusion GPS founder, was interviewed by the Judiciary Committee for 10 hours in August. Chuck Grassley, who had previously refused to release the contents of the interview.

During a senate judiciary committee, the Republicans found that Christopher Steele had passed details from the dossier to "multiple United States news outlets".

Simpson claims that he had no knowledge of this meeting (despite meeting with her before and after) and that his work for her was unrelated to his work on the Trump dossier (Simpson Testimony, p 133). Steele sent a series of memos to Fusion and Simpson said he concluded that "something bigger was going on".

Simpson, an expert on the former Soviet Union, said blackmail is common because "the Russians have cameras in all luxury hotel rooms".

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

Simpson said he found Steele's reports that the Russians were coordinating with the Trump campaign credible.
