A detailed transcript of the Fusion GPS testimony was uploaded by CNBC.com.

President Donald Trump is lashing out at Sen.

Donald Trump Jr. played off the meeting as a discussion of Russian adoptions but a month later, tweeted that he had attended because he thought he'd be receiving damaging intel on Hillary Clinton. It's unclear whether he was referring to Trump's campaign or his business, which goes by the name the Trump Organization.

Trump's words differed from what he said at a news conference in June, shortly after fired FBI Director James Comey had told Congress that Trump asked him for a pledge of loyalty. But one year later, BuzzFeed stands its ground.

"It's time to share what our company told investigators", they wrote.

"When they have no collusion and nobody's found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview", Trump said Wednesday during a joint news conference with the prime minister of Norway.

However, since then the dossier has become a heated point of contention between Dems and the Republicans - as well as for its role in the Mueller investigation.

Well, investigators won't say if she's cooperating, but she could also do time, possibly 20 years. Richardson Police Chief Jimmy Spivey said the case has been "very intensive" for his department.


Note: A source told NBC that Steele makes a mischaracterization here of an Australian diplomat's tip that Russian Federation has dirt on Hillary Clinton, as had been shared with him by George Papadopoulous "during a night of heavy drinking at an upscale London bar in May 2016". She also took the extraordinary step of releasing an important transcript from the Senate Judiciary Committee's Russian Federation probe without the Republican chairman's sign-off. Sometime thereafter the FBI - I understand Chris severed his relationship with the FBI out of concern that he didn't know what was happening inside the FBI and there was a concern that the FBI was being manipulated for political ends by the Trump people and that we didn't really understand what was going on. It also appears that Steele lied to investigators about those contacts. The FBI interviewed Steele again a month before the election.

Feinstein said that she was trying to set the record straight after speculation about Simpson's interview.

"The original inquiry was into the value of the courses, whether he had to borrow money to buy them, whether they were encumbered with debt, how much money they brought in, what valuations he put on them, and property tax filings", he said.

"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", the California Democrat said in a statement. Feinstein made a decision to release the transcripts in response. As The Hill explains, a challenging primary is unlikely as California's primary system rewards the highest two finishers, no matter party affiliation, and Feinstein's only notable challenger at this level is a Democrat.

What's next? The Trump camp is still reeling from the release of Michael Wolff's Fire & Fury, which describes a disorganized executive branch with plenty of infighting and no chain of command.

Considering that the "dossier" Steele authored for Fusion GPS - which was illegally funded by the DNC and the Clinton campaign - is itself rife with misstatements, false statements, factual errors, and fantastic speculation presented as evidence, it is not hard to believe that Steele would lie to federal authorities.
