"The American people deserve the opportunity to see what he said and judge for themselves", said Feinstein.

"There is simply no reason to keep the Simpson testimony (or other testimony before our committee for that matter) hidden while this distraction goes on".

It was released by the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. 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.

Simpson, founder of research firm Fusion GPS, spoke to investigators with the Senate Judiciary Committee for 10 hours in August. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) wrote in a letter to Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on Sunday. That decision marks the most serious break yet in the once cooperative relationship she has had with the Republican chairman of the committee, Sen.

Fusion GPS was hired in mid-2016 by a lawyer for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee to dig into the background of candidate Trump. When they re-interviewed him in early October, agents made it clear, according to Simpson's testimony released Tuesday, that they believed some of what Steele had told them.

Neither committee had intentions of releasing the transcripts from its interview with Mr. Simpson. In the op-ed, they called for the transcripts of Simpson's congressional testimony to be released. "The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public".

The former British intelligence officer who authored the infamous Russian Federation dossier wanted to show it to the Federal Bureau of Investigation because he was concerned that then-candidate Donald Trump was being blackmailed.

Simpson has also appeared in front of the House Intelligence Committee, which is conducting its own probe into Russia's attempts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election and any potential ties between Trump campaign staff members and Moscow.

Fusion GPS said Grassley's office was not giving an accurate version of events.
