I'm Proud We Published the Trump-Russia Dossier
A lawyer for the co-founder of the firm Fusion GPS, which commissioned the controversial dossier that detailed President Donald Trump's alleged connections to Russian Federation, told congressional investigators that a person was killed as a result of the document, according to testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee released by Democratic Sen.
Feinstein made the transcript public over the objections of Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who called the move "confounding" in a statement shortly after Feinstein made it public. Chuck Grassley, declined to.
Mr. Simpson and Peter Fritsch, the firm's co-founders, had called for the transcript's release last week in an op-ed in The New York Times in which they accused Republicans of concealing their testimony in an effort to smear the dossier and distract from questions about the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation.
The dossier, commissioned by the firm Fusion GPS during the 2016 presidential election campaign, was compiled by a former British spy named Christopher Steele.
Three separate congressional committees are investigating Russian tampering in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign: the Senate judiciary and intelligence committees, and the House intelligence committee.
One person familiar with the probe said Simpson's comments misrepresent what had actually happened - that it was an Australian official who reached out to the United States in late July with concerns about a conversation months earlier in London with Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos.
The congressional panel is one of three investigating the Russian Federation matter. "The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public". "The American people deserve the opportunity to see what he said and judge for themselves", Feinstein said in a statement.

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".
Mr. Simpson has also spoken with investigators from the House and Senate intelligence committees, which have their own investigations into Russia's election interference.
Ms Feinstein said she released the transcript with the agreement of the other Democrats on the committee, to combat the "innuendo and misinformation" surrounding it. "Feinstein for her courage".
Other Republicans on the panel were less concerned.
Last week, Grassley and fellow Republican Sen.
Democrats on the committee said they were not consulted ahead of the Republicans' referral to the Department of Justice.
He also disputed Republican charges that his firm is linked to Democrats, saying the firm takes clients from both sides of the aisle.
