Senator Dianne Feinstein said on Thursday that is was because of a “bad cold” that she did not tell Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley about the release of Glenn Simpson’s testimony earlier this week, reports The Washington Times.
Maybe the liberal media should stop paying attention to the false accusations about President Trump’s mental capabilities and instead talk about Sen. Feinstein’s since she herself openly admitted to her mental facilities being “slowed down.”
“The one regret I have is that I should have spoken with Senator Grassley before. And I don’t make an excuse, but I’ve had a bad cold and maybe that slowed down my mental facilities a little bit,” Feinstein, California Democrat, told NBC News.
Simpson is the co-founder of Fusion GPS, the research firm hired by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to gather information on then-candidate Donald Trump.
The result was an unverified and now disproved dossier written by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele. The dossier has been the lynchpin that began special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into collusion between Trump and the Russian government.
Republicans have said the dossier was politically motivated and used to obtain FISA warrants to spy on Mr. Trump’s campaign.
Feinstein said in a statement earlier this week that she released the transcript to fight back against this narrative.
“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,” Feinstein said in a statement.
Simpson has testified for more than 20 hours before three congressional committees regarding his frim’s role in commissioning the report. On Jan. 2, Simpson and fellow Fusion GPS co-founder Peter Fritsch called on congressional investigators to release their testimony.
