* Last Friday when Senators Grassley and Graham called for an investigation of Michael Steele, someone (I can’t remember who) documented on twitter why that was a bad idea. The main reason was that it could lead to exactly what happened today.
Glenn R. Simpson, a founder of the research firm Fusion GPS, spoke to investigators with the Senate Judiciary Committee for 10 hours in August. As the partisan fight over Russian interference in the 2016 election has intensified, Simpson has urged that his testimony be released, and a copy of the transcript was made public Tuesday.
It was released by the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California.
Yes, Feinstein did that.
Senator Dianne Feinstein UNILATERALLY releases the Fusion GPS Transcripts on the internet, from her office, while sitting in that Immigration Presser with her colleagues and smiling in Trump’s face. https://t.co/vjFFaJ5WbE pic.twitter.com/yI79on0rSs

* Here is the bombshell in Simpson’s testimony that is gaining the most attention:
Glenn Simpson, a former newspaper reporter and the founder of a research firm called Fusion GPS, spoke to the Senate Judiciary Committee for more than 10 hours in August about his research into Trump, and on Tuesday more than 300 pages of his testimony were released by the committee’s ranking Democrat, Dianne Feinstein of California.
