Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, to release transcripts of an interview with a founder of the firm that commissioned the controversial dossier about President Donald Trump and Russian Federation. "The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice, " she said.

Feinstein said she released the transcript to set the record straight.

"After speaking with majority and minority committee staff for 10 hours, Glenn Simpson requested the transcript of his interview be released publicly".

Feinstein released the testimony after the panel's Republican chairman, Charles Grassley, on Friday called for a criminal investigation into former British spy Christopher Steele, who was working for Fusion GPS when he compiled a "dossier" of allegations of financial and personal links between Trump, his advisers and Russian Federation.

The transcript reveals Mr Simpson also told the committee that Mr Steele was the "lead Russianist at MI6 prior to leaving" and was someone he had worked with since 2009. Steele's reports were eventually compiled into a dossier alleging the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin - a claim the president has repeatedly denied.
