Feinstein told NBC News, "The one regret I have is that I should have spoke with Senator Grassley before".

Committee Republican Lindsey Graham of SC, who last week joined Grassley in referring the author of the infamous Trump dossier to the Justice Department for possible criminal prosecution, tweeted, "It's not enough to simply release the transcript from the co-founder of #FusionGPS Glenn Simpson".

Sen. Feinstein released Simpson's testimony on Tuesday despite Grassley's opposition.

"It will be proven that I had no involvement in this Russian collusion conspiracy", Cohen said in an interview with Bloomberg News on Tuesday.

The comments come after Trump had already lashed out at the investigations on Twitter Wednesday morning, urging Republicans to take control of the inquiries and repeating his claim that they are on a "witch hunt".

Trump, the Republicans, and Trump's inner circle have been hard at work to discredit the dossier as politically motivated and too much a linchpin of the FBI investigation. The company and Smith are defendants in another high-stakes lawsuit in Florida, where a Russian tech company leader says the news organization defamed him and his companies by linking them to the hack of the Democratic National Committee.

Simpson also said he had no "factual reason to believe" the meeting at Trump Tower between a Russian lawyer and Donald Trump Jr. was part of the Kremlin's effort to reach out to the Trump campaign. "The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public".

In recent months, however, Feinstein has stepped up the pressure on Trump and his White House, launching her own parallel investigation to the one Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, is conducting into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation in 2016.

Trump has often invoked Feinstein on the collusion issue.

Despite the so-called "salacious and unverified" claims in the dossier, the FBI reportedly used the document to justify secretly monitoring Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and to bolster its Trump-Russia investigation, .

Feinstein faces a primary from California state Senate leader Kevin de Leon. His fellow board member, Laura LeBeouf, disagreed, and said she was "very appalled" by Hargrave's arrest.

Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, is up for re-election this year and has served in the Senate since 1992. He has also talked to the House and Senate intelligence committees. Richard Burr. Neither senator would comment on the meeting's objective.
