Feinstein Puts Out Fusion GPS Founder's Russia Interview

12 January, 2018, 18:16 | Author: Regina Silva
  • Allegations about Russian involvement in Donald Trump's successful White House run were included in an unverified dossier

While allegations spelled out in the dossier have not been verified, they have also yet to be invalidated, Berenzweig pointed out, which could complicate the legal process for Cohen.

Mr Trump called the investigation a "phony cloud" over his administration. "It was a Democrat hoax". He said he'd be "glad to" speak to Mueller about it.

That's what the co-founder of a research firm, Fusion GPS, told Congress about a dossier his firm produced during the presidential campaign.

"There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes", he tweeted.

How this contradicts Trump's side: Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump Jr. have all maintained in public comments and, for the latter two, in congressional testimony, that they did not collude, nor know anyone who colluded with Russian Federation.

In a separate tweet Wednesday morning, Trump accused Democratic Sen.

Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the committee, released the transcript from Mr Simpson's closed-door interview in August.

The transcript of the Senate intelligence committee's interview with Fusion GPS director Glenn Simpson is now in the public domain, put there by a frustrated Sen. That detail is one of many in a transcript released today by Senator Dianne Feinstein.

Levy's claim was one of the biggest bombshells from the Simpson interview. 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. ". To me this was like, you know, you're driving to work and you see something happen and you call 911", he said in another part of the testimony.

"We strongly believed that publishing the disputed document whose existence we and others were reporting was in the public interest", Smith wrote in his opinion piece.

The senators also criticized Grassley and Sen.

Trump has derided the dossier as a politically motivated hit job.

Trump has dismissed the information in the dossier that was handed over to the FBI, and several Republican-led committees are now investigating whether the document formed the basis for the FBI's initial investigation into alleged Russian election meddling 2016's presidential race. That has angered Democrats, who say those probes are distractions from the Russian Federation investigations. Simpson said he had worked with Steele since 2009 and he is "basically a Boy Scout". Grassley declined to release the full transcript, but invited Fusion GPS to come before his panel and testify publicly.

Cohen said he told the panels that he never engaged with, was paid by, or communicated with anyone representing the Russian government, or anyone else, about hacking or interfering with the USA election, hacking the Democratic Party, or about creating fake news stories to assist the Trump campaign or to damage the Clinton campaign.

Trump has often invoked Feinstein on the collusion issue.

Instead of being the source of the FBI investigations, Simpson claimed that the FBI was already on to the Russians, not least because our Australian allies warned us that the Russians claimed to have dirt on Clinton, which they learned because George Papadopoulos, a Trump advisor, was bragging about it to an Australian diplomat. The 84-year-old Feinstein, who is up for reelection in 2018, faces a primary challenge from California's progressive State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León.
