'Sneaky' Feinstein Needs to Be Primaried

Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Sues Buzzfeed for Publishing Steele Dossier

Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) made some waves in Washington by releasing the transcript of a Senate Judiciary Committee interview with Glenn Simpson - one of the founders of Fusion GPS, the Washington firm which published the infamous Trump dossier.

Two GOP Congressman at the table jumped in to clarify for the president that no, he doesn't want a bill that doesn't include security.

In response, the organization says the suit is an attack on the free press, and they will continue to defend their First Amendment rights.

We strongly believed that publishing the disputed document whose existence we and others were reporting was in the public interest.

Well now that Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney, is filing a pair of lawsuits - one in federal court against Fusion GPS and the other in NY against BuzzFeed - the truth may take on some renewed importance. Now, Simpson of course is the founder of Fusion GPS.

A January 2017 assessment by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) stated that Russian leadership preferred presidential candidate Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, and that Russian President Vladimir Putin personally ordered an "influence campaign" to harm Clinton's electoral chances and "undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process".

Steele had compiled the 35-page intelligence dossier under contract, making several explosive and uncorroborated claims about then-Republican presidential candidate Trump.

Of the three congressional panels investigating the president and Russian Federation, only the Senate Intelligence Committee appears to have maintained bipartisan calm.

Finger-pointing and acrimony surrounding probes of Russian meddling in the 2016 US election intensified Thursday, with the Trump White House and Democratic lawmakers trading accusations of undermining and manipulating investigations that require bipartisan buy-in to succeed. Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is continuing, and his probe so far has resulted in charges against four of Trump's campaign advisers. On his tweet praising Kushner, Trump joked that the next one facing scrutiny over ties to Russian Federation would be his youngest son, Barron Trump. "Why waste time talking about something that's not legitimate", he said.

"I don't know him that well".

McCain then passed the controversial document to James Comey, then director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation which followed by using the dossier in the probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee later commissioned Fusion and the work that led to the dossier, according to the Washington Post.

Simpson said Steele went to the FBI in late June or "at the latest" early July - weeks before the FBI reportedly launched its investigation into the Trump campaign. She said on CBS's "Face the Nation" on October 8 that there's "no proof" yet that there was any collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's campaign, adding: "I think that proof will likely come with Mr. Mueller's investigation".
