Fusion GPS Head Defends Trump Dossier in Senate Interview Transcript

Dianne Feinstein did by releasing the transcript of the Senate Judiciary Committee's full interview with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson was "a disgrace".

The website BuzzFeed first published the dossier online last January, airing its unverified allegations about President Trump's connections with Russian Federation.

Trump has attacked the dossier and called it "very fake", although its contents have not been proved or disproved.

It was unclear what Trump meant by saying that Republicans should take control.

During the part of the meeting open to news cameras, Trump appeared to agree with the California Democrat on making a deal on the DACA, or "dreamers", program without other requirements that he and congressional Republicans have sought, including money to build a wall on the Mexican border.

Adds Trump: "Must have tough Primary!"

They have raised questions about whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation may have relied on the Steele document to improperly obtain surveillance warrants to spy on Trump's campaign associates.

China says report on U.S. treasuries may cite `wrong source'
After seeing modest weakness in morning trading, treasuries turned higher over the course of the trading session on Thursday. ET (1150 GMT), Dow e-minis were down 109 points, or 0.43 percent, with 27,895 contracts changing hands.

Simpson and Fusion co-founder Peter Fritsch had urged the committee's Republican leaders to release transcripts of their testimony in a New York Times opinion piece last Tuesday entitled "The Republicans' Fake Investigations". Her staff helped conduct the interview with Simpson, who had also asked for the interview to be released.

"Her action undermines the integrity of the committee's oversight work and jeopardizes its ability to secure candid voluntary testimony", said Grassley spokesman Taylor Foy.

Democrats have charged that the FBI investigations are meant to be a distraction from separate investigations into the Russian meddling and whether Trump's campaign was involved.

Mr Simpson has denied that the dossier prompted the FBI's initial investigations.

"I understand Chris severed his relationship with the FBI out of concern that he didn't know what was happening inside the FBI and there was a concern that the FBI was being manipulated for political ends by the Trump people", Simpson told the Senate Judiciary Committee. "The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public".

Grassley is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has been conducting an investigation running parallel to special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Trump's alleged ties to Russian Federation. Democrats criticized the move, saying they were targeting someone who had reported wrongdoing, not committed it.
