Reporting Sen. Feinstein's unilateral action on the Simpson testimony on January 10, the Times cited the Democrat's view that "scrutiny of the dossier's provenance is a distraction from the central question: [d] id the Trump campaign knowingly seek aid from Russian Federation?" "The fact that Sneaky Dianne Feinstein, who has on numerous occasions stated that collusion between Trump/Russia has not been found, would release testimony in such an underhanded and possibly illegal way, totally without authorization, is a disgrace", the president tweeted, according to Politico.

Trump added that the United States should instead accept more immigrants from countries such as Norway, whose prime minister he had met the previous day.

Democrats on the committee said they were not consulted ahead of a decision by Senate Republicans to issue a criminal referral against former British spy and Fusion GPS investigator Christopher Steele. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), previously told the Times that Simpson was "uncooperative" during his interview, although the transcript is full of a number of potentially explosive details.

Grassley of Iowa, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, a senior committee member, told the Justice Department that they had reason to believe that a former British spy, Christopher Steele, lied to federal authorities about his contacts with reporters regarding information in a dossier, and they urged the department to investigate. Feinstein for her courage.

She told an NBC News reporter that she regrets not speaking to Grassley beforehand, citing her cold as a possible factor.

It's a voluntary interview, and in addition to that [Simpson] wants to be very careful to protect his sources. Last week, Simpson and his fellow Fusion GPS co-founder Peter Fritsch wrote an op-ed in The New York Times saying that Simpson's testimony "walked investigators through our yearlong effort to decipher Mr. Trump's complex business past, of which the Steele dossier is but one chapter".

Several GOP-led committees are now investigating whether the dossier formed the basis for the FBI's initial investigations.

Democrats say those investigations are a distraction.

Whitehouse stressed that Simpson himself wanted the transcript made public, saying doing so would be refute the accusations against him. And Feinstein is a powerfully placed female lawmaker with a reputation on Capitol Hill that allows her to take on Trump from a position of authority and credibility - all qualities that existed before, but have now taken on increased political importance following a cultural reckoning that called out powerful men who abused their power and sought to elevate women's voices. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, on Wednesday.

I didn't originally agree or disagree, I just put it off and said I needed to think about it.

Sheldon Whitehouse and Richard Blumenthal sent a letter to Republican Sen.

While Simpson has accused conservative lawmakers of acting in bad faith, Republicans have accused Steele, while working for Fusion GPS, of misleading the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "Republicans should finally take control!"
