Trump golf courses mentioned in Russian Federation inquiry

Simpson's political intelligence firm commissioned a dossier into Trump's Russian Federation ties, and Republicans have used Simpson as a cudgel against the probe into the White House, saying that it helped spur the investigation and should be discredited.

An attorney for the co-founder of opposition research firm Fusion GPS revealed during a closed-door interview this summer with congressional investigators that "somebody's already been killed" as a result of the publication of the anti-Trump dossier.

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, led by Charles Grassley, had declined to release Simpson's testimony, saying he had refused to testify at a public hearing and failed to answer questions or turn over records.

"Must have tough Primary!" he tweeted.

Feinstein on Tuesday released transcript from the Senate Judiciary Committee's August interview with Glenn Simpson, of Fusion GPS.

Also on Tuesday, a group of House of Representatives Democrats wrote to Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan asking his party to "fully investigate" possible Russian interference in USA elections. "This is not the first time Trump's lawyer has attacked the free press, and we look forward to defending our First Amendment rights in court", BuzzFeed said. Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham referred Christopher Steele, the author of the Trump-Russia dossier, to the Department of Justice for possible criminal charges. He has also talked to the House and Senate intelligence committees.

The criminal referral urged the DOJ to examine whether Steele made false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation "about the distribution of claims" contained in the dossier.

On Monday, there were new revelations that FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page had texted messages to each other that suggested they were on the Russian Federation investigation before the election. Later, as Trump's pathway to the Republican nomination became more assured, the firm was hired by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to continue that research. Feinstein for her courage. 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". "Republicans should finally take control!"

"Her action undermines the integrity of the committee's oversight work and jeopardizes its ability to secure candid voluntary testimony", said Grassley spokesman Taylor Foy.
