Trump calls on Republicans to 'finally take control' of the Russian Federation investigation

Glenn Simpson, former Wall Street Journal journalist and co-founder of the research firm Fusion GPS, said he was told the Federal Bureau of Investigation had a source in the Trump campaign or organization.

Mr. Simpson and Peter Fritsch, the firm's co-founders, had called for the Judiciary Committee to release the transcript in an Op-Ed essay in The New York Times, arguing that it would show that Republicans were unfairly smearing their work.

"The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice", she said.

Trump and others believe the controversial dossier triggered the FBI's investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election. He also misleadingly claimed that Feinstein had already concluded there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Specifically, Fusion hired former British spy Christopher Steele in 2016 to assemble the widely confirmedintelligence document that detailed Trump's many shocking connections with Russian business operatives over the years, as well as the Kremlin's attempt to get him elected president.

In mid-2016, Steele told Simpson that he was so concerned about the Russian operation that he would share his research with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Simpson had called for the release of his testimony to the public. "It evolved somewhat quickly into issues of his relationships to organized crime figures, but you know, really the gamut of Donald Trump", Simpson said.

Shane J replied: "Come on Ann, you have to acknowledge that men have done some disgusting things to women". I think I peeved them off on the night they came in with the question about gender and love.

Simpson said it was a "voluntary source" - someone who was concerned about the same concerns we had. But Grassley said Wednesday that he has a long history of oversight of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and this was part of it.

The split between Feinstein and Grassley has widened in recent weeks. "You obviously didn't read the Fusion GPS Testimony which discredits everything that Fox News has been pushing on their viewers", yet another tweet stated.

Last week, Grassley and fellow committee member Sen.

He and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, asked the Justice Department last week to investigate Steele for allegedly making false statements to the government. Rather. they had passed on the information for "further investigation only". As the partisan fight over Russian interference in the 2016 election has intensified, Simpson has urged that his testimony be released, and a copy of the transcript was made public Tuesday.

One passage in particular drew heavy attention - where Simpson's lawyer claimed someone had been killed over the dossier's publication. He says Steele met with an Federal Bureau of Investigation official in Rome in September to discuss his findings. "He seemed to know a lot about that", Simpson told Senate investigators.

Simpson said he didn't know whether the person was connected to the Trump campaign or a Trump company, adding that his understanding was that the source was "someone like us who made a decision to pick up the phone and report something".
