Fusion GPS admits McCain role in anti-Trump dossier

The website BuzzFeed first published the dossier online last January, airing its unverified allegations about President Trump's connections with Russian Federation.

Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., has released a transcript from an interview with Simpson, the firm that commissioned a dossier of allegations about President Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

The Levy statement was contained as part of the lengthy transcript of Simpson's interview with committee investigators, released Tuesday by Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein.

Simpson and Fusion co-founder Peter Fritsch had urged the committee's Republican leaders to release transcripts of their testimony in a New York Times opinion piece last Tuesday entitled "The Republicans' Fake Investigations".

"Must have tough Primary!" he tweeted.

Dianne Feinstein released a 312-page transcript of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson's August interview with the Senate Judiciary Committee.

A spokesman for Grassley, Taylor Foy, called it "confounding" that Feinstein released the transcript "unilaterally", over the objections of the Republican majority. He has also talked to the House and Senate intelligence committees.

The dossier was written by former British MI6 agent Christopher Steele.

Dianne Feinstein of being "underhanded and a disgrace" for disclosing details of a dossier of allegations about his ties to Russian Federation during the presidential campaign.

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

It was unclear what Trump meant by saying that Republicans should take control.

Investigators have also uncovered evidence of deep animosity against Trump by some of the Federal Bureau of Investigation officials assigned to the initial Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into the Trump campaign and on the subsequent special counsel.

"Her action undermines the integrity of the committee's oversight work and jeopardizes its ability to secure candid voluntary testimony", said Grassley spokesman Taylor Foy.
