BuzzFeed Chief Defends Trump Pee Dossier: 'I'm Proud We Published'

Sen Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a former long-time chairman of the Judiciary panel, called Feinstein's unusual move "improper" but said unequivocally that what the senator did was not illegal. "Together, these reports confirmed that various law firms and businesses had retained Fusion on behalf of their clients to perform Russia-related work, thus triggering the Committee's investigative interest in identifying other businesses that sought Fusion's services during the same relevant period", Leon wrote.

The document alleges that Cohen met with Russian officials in the Czech Republic and was involved with covert plans to compensate hackers who aided Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

"Although no amount of money can ever remedy the damage that has been sustained by Mr. Cohen, we will be seeking maximum damages for the lies contained in the so-called dossier", Cohen's attorney, David Schwartz, said in a statement.

"The Republicans on that committee didn't consult with her with respect to their referral to the Department of Justice", Murphy said, referring to Grassley and Sen.

The bombshells come from a newly released transcript of Simpson's interviews with members of Congress.

Carlson shot back and said Smith can't make a "retroactive argument", adding: "I'm not even attacking you for running it".

Feinstein told NBC News, "The one regret I have is that I should have spoke with Senator Grassley before".

The comments come after Trump had already lashed out at the investigations on Twitter Wednesday morning, urging Republicans to take control of the inquiries and repeating his claim that they are on a "witch hunt".

Last week another attorney working for Trump personally, Charles Harder, sent a cease and desist letter to the publisher and author of the new book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", seeking to stop further distribution. "[.] Imagine covering Simpson's testimony to the intelligence committee [.] in a situation in which you had no idea what they were fighting about".

President Donald Trump lashed out at Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein on Twitter on Wednesday, in response to her release of an interview transcript related to the Russian Federation investigation.

Plus, the suits could put Cohen, who worked for the Trump Organization and now is a personal lawyer to Trump himself, in the position of proving that the dossier's allegations are false. "It was presented to two successive presidents, and has been described in detail by news outlets around the world", BuzzFeed News spokesperson Matt Mittenthal said in a statement.

In May, Feinstein was asked by CNN whether she's seen evidence of collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation. Following his lead, several GOP-led committees are now investigating whether the dossier formed the basis for the FBI's initial investigations.

Feinstein said that she was trying to set the record straight after speculation about Simpson's interview. Richard Burr. Neither senator would comment on the meeting's objective.
