Trump Lashes Out at Feinstein for Releasing Transcript

Senators Grassley, Graham Refer Christopher Steele for Criminal Investigation | Chuck Grassley

Trump called the investigation a "phony cloud" over his administration. "It was a Democrat hoax".

Protest poster at anti-Trump rally, New York City, June 3, 2017.

The comments, which Trump seemed to deny but Democratic and Republican senators have confirmed, have sparked an worldwide firestorm since The Washington Post first reported on them Thursday. He said he'd be "glad to" speak to Mueller about it.

He also reiterated in another tweet that there was "no collusion" with Russian Federation, and called on Republicans to "finally take control". They unquestionably diminish our country's standing in the world.

Grassley and fellow Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC took the unusual step of asking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to investigate the report's author, former British spy Christopher Steele.

In a separate tweet Wednesday morning, Trump accused Democratic Sen. Feinstein's unilateral action seems to reflect Democrat partisanship in the ongoing civil war against the Trump presidency. Fusion GPS was the firm paid by Democrats to compile the dossier alleging ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Grassley spokesman Taylor Foy said that Feinstein released the transcript without consulting Grassley and suggested it could jeopardize the committee's ability to interview future witnesses.

She also said she "had a bad cold" that may have "slowed down" her thinking.

President Trump was not happy that Senator Dianne Feinstein released a Congressional transcript of an interview with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson without authorization, claiming in a tweet that it may have even been illegal.

Trump additionally called for Feinstein to face a primary challenge in her reelection campaign in 2018.

They said he has a deportation order which of course he's had for many years that we've been trying to challenge", Das said. Ragbir was taking part in a routine meeting with ICE when he was suddenly arrested and removed in an ambulance.

Still, the release was a blow the two lawmakers' earlier attempts at bipartisanship on the committee's Russian Federation investigation.

"I meant to tell him, and I didn't have a chance to tell him, and that concerns me", she told reporters.

There are other variations on this theme, but central to all of them was the idea that without Fusion there would be nothing, and that we would know this if only we could know what Simpson said to the Senate investigators.

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.

Mr Simpson claimed Donald Trump's golf courses "are not profitable entities". "The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public".

The Judiciary Committee's chairman, Sen.

"The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation", said Senator Dianne Feinstein.

"Look, this man is going to be president, most likely for the rest of this term", she said then.

"I think what's happening is that everyone is kind of coming to the realization that collusion isn't happening and they're just panicking and they're just throwing everything out there".
