Fusion GPS: Trump-Russia firm chief's transcript released

Fusion GPS: Trump-Russia firm chief's transcript released

Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, said in an October interview with CBS that it remained an "open question" whether there was any collusion, and that "the proof will likely come with Mr. Mueller's investigation".

Trump, the Republicans, and Trump's inner circle have been hard at work to discredit the dossier as politically motivated and too much a linchpin of the FBI investigation.

Ironically, Feinstein's recent moves against President Trump might be what gets her through what was already looking like a challenging primary race.

Cohen says although Buzzfeed put a disclaimer that it was unverified and contains errors, they did not attempt to verify the "defamatory and false" allegations made against him and President Trump.

Feinstein (D-Calif.) caused a stir Tuesday, when she surprisingly unveiled Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson's closed-door testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee in August.

The transcript disclosed Simpson had said the Federal Bureau of Investigation found the dossier to be credible because of an undisclosed "human source", according to Politico.

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

Since we published, the public has learned a great deal more about how seriously the F.B.I. took the dossier. He also again lashed out at the investigations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, urging Republicans to take control of the inquiries and repeating his claim that they are on a "witch hunt".


"It's not a distraction to see how the Justice Department used the dossier, how reliable it is, because that goes to the heart of the rule of law", Graham said. So basically it boils down to this - that this is an indication of just how the committee's Russian Federation investigation is really unraveling on a partisan basis.

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

The lawyer, Michael Cohen, denied any personal role in Russia's involvement in the 2016 election when he appeared before the House and Senate intelligence committees in October.

After finding political trouble with conciliatory rhetoric towards, President Trump, she threw a few punches at the president and his party this week.

Comey briefed Trump on the existence of the file during the presidential transition, as well as the fact that USA intelligence believed it might appear in the press.

Wisenberg said Trump could turn Mueller down.

"President Trump must be clear-eyed about the Russian threat, take action to strengthen our government's response and our institutions, and - as have other presidents in times of crisis - mobilize our country and work with an worldwide coalition to counter the threat and assert our values", Cardin said.

A spokesman for the committee chairman, Sen. "Why waste time talking about something that's not legitimate", he said.
