As reported last night, the file has been central to these investigations, with Democrats claiming it to be a roadmap to alleged collusion and corruption by Trump whereas Republicans and Trump's inner circle insisting that it is filled with unverified claims that the FBI may have used to improperly to secure a warrant to spy on Trump's campaign and transition. "Must have tough Primary!"

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

President Trump tweeted on Wednesday, "The fact that Sneaky Dianne Feinstein, who has on numerous occasions stated that collusion between Trump/Russia has not been found, would release testimony in such an underhanded and possibly illegal way, totally without authorization, is a disgrace".

It was unclear what Trump meant by saying that Republicans should take control.

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.

Last fall, Feinstein, 84, announced her decision to seek a sixth Senate term this year.
