"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 accompanying the release of the transcript. Readers of the 312-page transcript, available here, might form their own judgments. "It tells us what Mr. Simpson said", Kennedy opined. The only questions he refused were questions every reporter, private investigator, or lawyer would refuse to answer - clients, sources, and methods. Fusion GPS also had been hired to research the Magnitsky Act, which attempted to block certain Russian operatives from using the US banking system after they purportedly caused the death of a Russian tax accountant in a Russian prison in 2009. "In a shorthand way, yeah", Simpson answered.
As part of that research, Fusion GPS hired Steele, who had been the head of MI6's Russian Federation desk.
Mr Simpson claimed Donald Trump's golf courses "are not profitable entities".

Are you a racist?' Trump questioned over 's***hole' remarks
John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 GOP senator, and other Republicans have derided the group of six senators as having little clout. This week Trump signed a measure creating a new national historic park for Martin Luther King Jr.in Georgia.
The lengthy transcript was released over the objections of Republicans, who have been sharply critical of Simpson's firm, Fusion GPS. During this exchange, Simpson also noted that Steele was basically given free reign-that Fusion GPS didn't direct him to pursue particular avenues.
President Donald Trump is right that California Sen. Simpson could not answer that one. Steele called the collection of rumors "raw" and "unverified".
"What does the transcript tell us?"
Simpson had hired Steele, whom he describes as a "Boy Scout", because he wanted to know why Trump had spent so much time in Russian Federation despite saying he had no business dealings there. He did say it was well known that the Russians have cameras in all the luxury hotels.
Simpson told Congress, in his prevaricating and often defensive testimony, that Steele allegedly went to the Federal Bureau of Investigation because he believed the Kremlin had the goods on Trump.
Trump to undergo medical check after mental state claims
US President Donald Trump will supposedly undergo a formal health check to end speculation about his mental fitness. Trump himself hit out at claims over his mental capacity, tweeting on Saturday that he was a 'very stable genius '.
"He said don't worry about that", Simpson said. "I just recall that there was - that he broke off, which implies that he told him he didn't want to have anything more to do with them".
Feinstein said at the time, "I wasn't consulted about this referral, nor were any of my Democratic colleagues". Did he now know who it was? He said he had to go to Rome, I said okay. "I figured it out based on other sources". That has angered Democrats, who say those probes are distractions from the Russian Federation investigations. He also mentioned Africa and asked why more people from "s--hole countries" should be allowed into the USA, the sources said.
During a Wednesday interview on CNN's New Day, host Chris Cuomo pointed out to Kennedy that a transcript provided by Sen. "But you know, sort of like when you've done nothing wrong, let's be open and get it over with". "It was our belief that director Comey, if he was made aware of this information, would treat it seriously".
The Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation are on a tight timeline to provide records and witnesses, based on an agreement reached last week between Republican Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Simpson was "encouraging the media to ask questions about whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation was, in fact, investigating these matters", but did not remember the first published article that made use of Steele's memos.
Investigators were allowed to review the records and take notes but not take copies, which is standard in sensitive cases. "Somebody's already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier and no harm should come to anybody related to this honest work", Leavy revealed. Nobody on the committee asked who had been killed and if Levy knew he wasn't talking. "The memos are field reports that Chris's network conducted and there's nothing phony about it". "I'm not going to pretend that that wouldn't have entered into my thinking".
Dark Souls Comes to Switch in Dark Souls: Remastered
Dark Souls Remastered will receive graphical enhancements across the board as well as the aim to hit 60 frames per second. And lastly, one source indicates that there are plans to bring all three Dark Souls games to Switch eventually.
"That's a problem the Trump team seems to have", Cuomo responded. "And when you look at Glenn Simpson's testimony, it's clear that that could not be farther from the truth".
