Trump Calls Out Sen. Feinstein For Leaking Fusion GPS Transcript

She said on CBS's "Face the Nation" on October 8 that there's "no proof" yet that there was any collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's campaign, adding: "I think that proof will likely come with Mr. Mueller's investigation".

Sen. Dianne Feinstein is the newest target of President Trump's Twitter rage, and it couldn't be better news for the California Democrat.

Trump joined the committee chairman in criticizing Feinstein for releasing the information without Grassley's consent. Dianne Feinstein on Tuesday released 10 hours of testimony from the co-founder of Fusion GPS, the research firm behind a notorious dossier of allegations about President Donald Trump's ties to officials in Russian Federation.

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

President Donald Trump is accusing Democratic Sen. "The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public". But Grassley said Wednesday that he has a long history of oversight of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and this was part of it.

"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 California Democrat rebuked Trump's tweet suggesting that she broke the law by releasing Simpson's testimony. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., another member of the committee, last week sent a classified letter urging the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation of Steele.

The criminal referral urged the DOJ to examine whether Steele made false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation "about the distribution of claims" contained in the dossier.

The FBI believed Steele's "information might be credible because they had other intelligence that indicated the same thing, and one of those pieces of information was a human source inside the Trump organization", Simpson testified.

The special counsel's team of investigators has expressed interest in speaking with Trump, but no details have been worked out.
