Dem Lawmaker Posts Entire ‘Closed-Door’ Testimony Of Fusion GPS To Senate Judiciary
In an extraordinary act of defiance, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) on Tuesday posted the entire transcript of a closed-door testimony that Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson made to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Simpson last week demanded that the full transcript be released, but Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) refused, sparking a fight over who was standing in the way of the document being released.
The judicial panel interviewed Simpson in August as part of its investigation into Russia’s election interference.
Simpson has emerged as a central figure in the probes into Russian election interference after his firm helped assemble a controversial dossier tying President Trump to Russia.
The document was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and includes explosive allegations against Trump and his links to Moscow.
GOP senators are calling for Steele to face a criminal investigation.
