  • Salvadoran Community Reacts to Trump Ending Temporary Protected Status

A lawyer for Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of Fusion GPS, told congressional investigators that "somebody's already been killed" as a result of the publication of the controversial dossier tying President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE to Russia. The New York Times reported last month that Papadopoulos told the diplomat that Russian Federation had thousands of emails that would embarrass Clinton and that the Australians' subsequent tip to the FBI about the conversation helped persuade the bureau to investigate potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied allegations of meddling in the US election and Trump denies any collusion between his campaign and Moscow officials.

"The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public", she said.

The FBI responded to Steele "by September", Simpson said, and Steele then met in mid- or late September with an FBI legal attaché in Rome.

Simpson said a dossier, which contained unverified allegations that Russian Federation had been cultivating Trump for years and had gathered compromising information on Trump, contained all the memos Steele had produced for Fusion GPS, and that neither Fusion nor Simpson selected the content or edited the memos.

The question remains: what did James allegedly do? No one will ask him about the underage girls. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo", Ally tweeted .

Simpson told the committee in closed-door testimony made public on Tuesday that no one had encouraged him and he did not seek anyone's approval when ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier, went to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in July 2016.

"They believed Chris might be credible because they had other intelligence that indicated the same thing", Simpson said.

Simpson's testimony, however, was not accurate, according to a person close to Fusion.

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, balked at the idea, saying that the transcript needed to remain confidential while the panel is interviewing other witnesses.

"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. "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".

Democrats on the committee said they were not consulted ahead of the Republicans' referral to the Department of Justice.

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

"Fusion GPS commends Sen".

Mr. Grassley last week rejected the firm's request to release the transcript, citing concerns that its release could taint the committee's ongoing investigations related to Russia's election meddling and the F.B.I.'s response.

Last week, Grassley and fellow Republican Sen.
