Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) made some waves in Washington by releasing the transcript of a Senate Judiciary Committee interview with Glenn Simpson - one of the founders of Fusion GPS, the Washington firm which published the infamous Trump dossier.

Feinstein, who is running for re-election in November, has issued a flurry of news releases to announce her requests to current and former members of Trump's campaign team for interviews and documents.

Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson sat for 10 hours of interviews with the committee staff in August, but until Tuesday, the panel's Republican leaders had kept the transcript private. Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham referred Christopher Steele, the author of the Trump-Russia dossier, to the Department of Justice for possible criminal charges.

Fusion GPS, which was hired first by Republicans and later Democrats, studied various aspects of Trump's background, a typical function for opposition researchers during presidential campaigns.

Fusion GPS was originally hired to do research during the 2016 Republican primary campaign for a still unknown Republican donor who wanted to defeat Trump.

Trump joined the committee chairman in criticizing Feinstein for releasing the information without Grassley's consent. Chuck GrassleyCharles (Chuck) Ernest GrassleyGrassley blasts Democrats over unwillingness to probe Clinton GOP and Dems bitterly divided by immigration Thanks to the farm lobby, the USA is stuck with a broken ethanol policy MORE (R-Iowa), who wanted to wait before releasing the transcript. Grassley said he was "confounded" by the release and argued that it could undermine attempts to get additional witnesses. "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".

Trump has dismissed the information contained in the dossier, which was handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele in September 2016.

The California Democrat rebuked Trump's tweet suggesting that she broke the law by releasing Simpson's testimony.

He did not identify the source. In addition to looking into whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to tilt the election in his favor. special counsel Robert Mueller is also examining whether Trump sought to obstruct justice when he fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey last May.
