Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) took it upon herself to release the 312-page transcript of the interview of Glenn Simpson, a former journalist and co-founder of Fusion GPS, which commissioned the infamous and debunked Trump dossier that has led to untold millions being spent on a witchhunt in DC that has basically turned up nothing.
The release of the documents comes just 4 days after senators called for an investigation into Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier and ex-MI6 British spy.
Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), who sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote a letter to Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) asking him to release the full transcript of the interview.
However, on Monday, it was reported that Grassley did not intend to release the transcript from the closed-door interview.
Needless to say, one might question why Feinstein believes she has authority to release the transcript in the middle of an ongoing investigation.
Zero Hedge reports:
Needless to say, Grassley was furious, stating that it is “totally confounding that Senator Feinstein would unilaterally release a transcript of a witness interview in the middle of an ongoing investigation” and that “Her action undermines the integrity of the committee’s oversight work and jeopardizes its ability to secure candid voluntary testimony relating to the independent recollections of future witnesses.”
