Adds Trump: "Must have tough Primary!"

"Feinstein's unilateral decision was made as the committee is still trying to secure testimony from other witnesses, including Jared Kushner", Grassley spokesman Taylor Foy said in a statement shortly after the transcript was released.

"The fact that Sneaky Dianne Feinstein, who has on numerous occasions stated that collusion between Trump/Russia has not been found, would release testimony in such an underhanded and possibly illegal way, totally without authorization, is a disgrace", Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

Republicans have argued that the tangled history of Fusion GPS's research - it was first backed by anti-Trump Republicans and then by Democrats during the 2016 race - raised doubts about the credibility of investigations into whether any of Trump's aides assisted Russia's efforts to meddle in the election. He also again lashed out at the investigations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, urging Republicans to take control of the inquiries and repeating his claim that they are on a "witch hunt".

Feinstein said at the time, "I wasn't consulted about this referral, nor were any of my Democratic colleagues".

President Donald Trump on Wednesday called out Sen. "Republicans should finally take control!"

Simpson's testimony provided a behind-the-scenes view of how the dossier was compiled from memos Steele wrote after communicating with his sources in Russian Federation. "But, as I would with any credible evidence of a crime unearthed in the course of our investigations, I feel obliged to pass that information along to the Justice Department for appropriate review", Grassley said in a statement.

"It's totally confounding that Senator Feinstein would unilaterally release a transcript of a witness interview in the middle of an ongoing investigation - a witness that Feinstein herself subpoenaed previous year for lack of cooperation", Grassley's press secretary said in a statement. "Russia & the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing". But Grassley said Wednesday that he has a long history of oversight of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and this was part of it.

The investigation led by special prosecutor Robert S. Mueller III has so far led to a guilty plea from Trump former national security adviser Michael Flynn and charges against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
