Dianne Feinstein on twitter for unilaterally releasing the complete transcript of an interview between congressional investigators and the founder of Fusion GPS, the opposition research agency that commissioned the controversial file on Trump in the course of the 2016 campaign.

"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", Trump tweeted.

Trump's statement follows lawsuits filed by his personal lawyer against BuzzFeed over the publication of the dossier and against Fusion GPS, the intelligence firm behind the infamous document.

He also misleadingly claimed that Feinstein had already concluded there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Fusion GPS hired former British spy Christopher Steele to produce the report, of which the main claims have been unverified.

There was significant infighting among Democrats and Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee over whether to release the transcript.

"It's totally confounding that Senator Feinstein would unilaterally release a transcript of a witness interview in the middle of an ongoing investigation - a witness that Feinstein herself subpoenaed previous year for lack of cooperation", Grassley's press secretary said in a statement. "The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public", she said. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, on Wednesday. Grassley said he was "confounded" by the release and argued that it could undermine attempts to get additional witnesses. "Her action undermines the integrity of the committee's oversight work and jeopardizes its ability to secure candid voluntary testimony", such as from Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law.

Trump has dismissed the information contained in the dossier, which was handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele in September 2016.

Feinstein said at the time, "I wasn't consulted about this referral, nor were any of my Democratic colleagues". Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is continuing, and his probe so far has resulted in charges against four of Trump's campaign advisers.
