Trump lawyer sues BuzzFeed for publishing Russian Federation dossier

The material wasn't classified, and Feinstein said Wednesday that she didn't do anything illegal.

In a joint statement from Mr Grassley and his colleague, Lindsey Graham, who chairs a number of senate subcommittees, the senators said they were not alleging Mr Steele had committed any crime.

Fusion GPS, co-founded by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson, "recklessly placed [the dossier] beyond their control and allowed it to fall into the hands of media devoted to breaking news on the hottest subject of the day: the Trump candidacy", ABC quoted from one of the lawsuits.

"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", Feinstein said in a statement. She released the transcript of Glenn Simpson's interview over the objections of the committee's Republican chairman, Iowa Sen. "[.] Imagine covering Simpson's testimony to the intelligence committee [.] in a situation in which you had no idea what they were fighting about".

He added: "After reviewing how Mr Steele conducted himself in distributing information contained in the dossier and how many stop signs the DoJ ignored in its use of the dossier, I believe that a special counsel needs to review this matter".

Trump, the Republicans, and Trump's inner circle have been hard at work to discredit the dossier as politically motivated and too much a linchpin of the FBI investigation. Following his lead, several GOP-led committees are now investigating whether the dossier formed the basis for the FBI's initial investigations. The company and Smith are defendants in another high-stakes lawsuit in Florida, where a Russian tech company leader says the news organization defamed him and his companies by linking them to the hack of the Democratic National Committee.

She also said she "had a bad cold" that may have "slowed down" her thinking. "The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public".

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's personal attorney, has reportedly filed a defamation suit against BuzzFeed for publishing the unsubstantiated collection of memos known as the Trump-Russia dossier previous year.

Trump has often invoked Feinstein on the collusion issue.

The dossier is a compilation of memos written by Steele during the 2016 campaign that contained allegations of connections between Trump and Russian Federation, including that Trump had been compromised by the Kremlin.

State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León launched a primary challenge against Feinstein in October, hoping to ride that anger to an upset victory in November. Asked about Trump's tweet, she brushed off the idea that the release had anything to do with her election.

Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, is up for re-election this year and has served in the Senate since 1992. He told NBC News Hargrave violated meeting policies by asking questions during the public comment section, and he fully supported the marshal.
