Earlier this week, Trump went after Feinstein for unilaterally releasing an interview transcript from Fusion GPS's testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, on which Feinstein is the top Democrat. For instance, Feinstein - besides releasing the transcript of Simpson's interview with her committee's investigators - made a statement about the referral for criminal investigation, saying, "It's clearly another effort to deflect attention from what should be the committee's top priority: determining whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation to influence the election and whether there was subsequent obstruction of justice".

Speaking with reporters Wednesday, Feinstein brushed off Trump's attacks, noting that her release of the unclassified transcript was not illegal. Chuck Grassley, the committee's chairman, calling on him to release the transcript of the committee's interview with Simpson, but Grassley refused to do so.

Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), previously told the Times that Simpson was "uncooperative" during his interview, although the transcript is full of a number of potentially explosive details.

After Democrats began paying for the research, Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele, a former British spy, to gather intelligence about any ties between the Kremlin and then-candidate Trump and his associates. Feinstein for her courage. The 84-year-old announced her bid in October.

The dossier is a compilation of memos written by Steele during the 2016 campaign that contained allegations of connections between Trump and Russian Federation, including that Trump had been compromised by the Kremlin. Republicans and Democrats have tangled in recent weeks over the origins of the dossier, which was funded in part by Trump's political opponents, and how the FBI and other agencies may have used it in their investigations.
