Dianne Feinstein

President Trump just accused Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) of illegally leaking information to the press. He called her a ‘disgrace’ and expressed wishes that she should face a tough primary challenger.

Feinstein is the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee. She released a 312-page transcript of testimony by Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. They commissioned the debunked ‘Trump Dossier’ that the FBI may have used to start the Russian investigation in the first place.

The move angered Republicans who had agreed not to release the transcripts. The report revealed that Simpson explained their was a “human source” close to President Trump that corroborated some of the information in the dossier to the FBI.

The president tweeted, “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. Must have tough Primary!”

He later added, “The single greatest Witch Hunt in American history continues. There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes. Russia & the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing. Republicans should finally take control!”

Republicans are not happy that Feinstein released the transcript:

“For Republicans, however, including Chairman Grassley, Feinstein has actually hurt the work of the committee in finding out about potential conspiracy with Russians or the prospect of obstruction of justice.

“‘Feinstein’s unilateral decision was made as the committee is still trying to secure testimony from other witnesses, including Jared Kushner,’ said Grassley’s spokesman. ‘Her action undermines the integrity of the committee’s oversight work and jeopardizes its ability to secure candid voluntary testimony relating to the independent recollections of future witnesses.'”

Feinstein is facing a primary challenge from Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León. But all candidates in every party run together in a primary with the top two running in the November general election. As of right now, there is no Republican in the race, so the two Democrats could face off against each other.
