Suffice it to say, he wasn't thrilled. "Must have tough Primary!"

Trump's wish may come true.

A day earlier, Feinstein, who faces a primary challenge in her re-election this year, released the transcript of the Senate Judiciary Committee's closed-door August interview with an official from the political opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which commissioned the dossier. But Billionaire activist Tom Steyer, long rumored to be pondering a bid, will not get in the race - according to the L.A. Times.

US President Donald Trump has slammed Senator Dianne Feinstein's decision to release the transcript of testimony from the Fusion GPS CEO as a disgrace.

Dianne Feinstein "sneaky" in a Twitter attack Wednesday morning and urged Republicans to "take control" of the sprawling investigation into his administration and campaign and potential collusion with Russian Federation.

Fusion GPS hired former British spy Christopher Steele to produce the report, of which the main claims have been unverified.

On Tuesday, Feinstein released the full 10-hour transcript of testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee from Fusion GPS CEO Glenn Simpson.

About a month later, Tharpe's wife was driving to work with her brother's wife when Tharpe used a truck to block them. Court of Appeals for the) Eleventh Circuit erred when it concluded otherwise".

The California Democrat said she made the transcript public because she felt the American people had the right to know what the firm's leaders said about a dossier of Russia-related information about Trump. Grassley told reporters Wednesday that he had not been involved in any leaks. Simpson requested that the testimony be released in a New York Times op-ed.

A revelation that the Russian Federation collusion investigation was sparked by the dossier, a piece of opposition research paid for by the Clinton campaign and the DNC, would prove to be a massive scandal.

Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in October to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his conversations with Russian officials, and is cooperating with prosecutors led by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.

Committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) was upset with Feinstein, the committee's ranking member, for releasing the information unilaterally.

"I don't take lightly making a referral for criminal investigation".

"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", the California Democrat said in a statement.
