  • Trump's Personal Lawyer Is Suing BuzzFeed Over That Explosive Russia Dossier

Mr. Trump claimed on Twitter that the California Democrat has stated on "numerous occasions" that no collusion took place between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 election. This includes Senate Intelligence Committee chair Grassley, Senator Graham, U.S. Rep. Ryan and the entire hoard of Republican lemmings who have been drilled to parrot their party's official lies on the subject. Dianne Feinstein on Tuesday. Feinstein sought to push back against that perception and to bolster the FBI's credibility.

She said she had taken the step because of the "innuendo and misinformation" circulating about Fusion GPS, which were "part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice".

Two Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are pushing Sen.

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein released the transcript from an August closed-door committee interview with Glenn Simpson after the Republican chairman of the committee, Iowa 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.

Mr Trump called the investigation a "phony cloud" over his administration. Readers following the story will want to review the transcript themselves.

Mr Steele was said to have passed on his findings to both USA and United Kingdom intelligence in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election due to concerns about national security for both countries. Steele, who is based in London, drew upon a range of sources, including figures linked to Russian intelligence, to compile the dossier. When pressed by the committee, Simpson's lawyer Joshua Levy suggested it would be unsafe to do so.

"Somebody's already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier and no harm should come to anybody related to this honest work", Levy said late in the interview, according to the transcript.

Cohen said the in the lawsuit, which was filed in a NY court: "Even though defendant BuzzFeed expressly acknowledged the unverified (and potentially unverifiable) nature of the dossier's allegations, defendant BuzzFeed published the un-redacted dossier and the article anyway - without attempting to determine the veracity of these reports with plaintiff himself".

The dossier was reportedly the result of an investigation initially funded by Republicans who were seeking to block Mr Trump from becoming the party's presidential candidate, before being taken over by Democrats after his nomination.

Fusion GPS said Grassley's office was not giving an accurate version of events.

Steele's work was commissioned by Fusion GPS, on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Donald Trump has said it "seems unlikely" that he would give an interview in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

Feinstein countered by releasing the Simpson transcript, a move that at least one senior Republican applauded.

In a statement, Fusion GPS said it "commends Sen". "It's remarkable that two former prosecutors would parrot the talking points of an uncooperative witness during the Committee's ongoing investigation", he said.

Yet while the investigations, probes and political sparring matches continue to play out within the halls of Congress, one of Simpson's allies says that if there is dirt to be found, Simpson will find it.
