Trump called the ranking Democratic member of the Judiciary Committee "Sneaky Dianne Feinstein", once again engaging in childish name-calling against a political adversary. That decision marks the most serious break yet in the cooperative relationship she has had with the Republican chairman of the committee, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. But preventing the public revelation of the company's defense of that document makes the conversation one-sided.
"Let me be totally clear that the allegations raised against me in the public square and raised largely by BuzzFeed, Fusion GPS and others in the press are based upon misinformation, unnamed or unverifiable sources", Cohen told CNN.
The comments come after Mr Trump had already lashed out at the investigations on Twitter on Wednesday morning, urging Republicans to take control of the inquiries and repeating his claim that they are on a "witch hunt".
At one point Simpson and Levy were asked about sources for the infamous Fusion GPS Russian dossier about Donald Trump.
DONALD Trump's personal lawyer has filed a defamation lawsuit against BuzzFeed for publishing an unverified dossier of allegations about the president's White House campaign and Russian Federation. It's one of the reasons he trusted Steele's information so much and agreed with Steele's expertise that they should contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation with what they found. The American people have the right to participate in democracy by seeing key witnesses testify and reading key documents - in fact, democracy depends on informed citizens. Sen. "Their posture toward Mr. Trump was, we now know even more comprehensively than we did in January 2017, shaped by (ex-British intelligence agent Christopher) Steele's report".
President Trump's longtime attorney is suing the research firm that compiled the infamous Russian Federation dossier on President Trump and the news website BuzzFeed, which published it. "I have never been to Prague or the Czech Republic, and I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or communicated with anyone representing the Russian Federation or anyone else to hack anyone or any organization or disseminate false news reports or interfere in any way with this election". That's according to a controversial release of a partially redacted transcript. When Foster pushed back, Simpson's lawyer Joshua Levy interjected. Now, Simpson of course is the founder of Fusion GPS.
"This categorically proves that they acted in reckless disregard for the truth since they did nothing to further verify if this information about Cohen was reliable and trustworthy".
Republicans have argued that the tangled history of Fusion GPS's research - it was first backed by anti-Trump Republicans and then by Democrats during the 2016 race - raised doubts about the credibility of investigations into whether any of Trump's aides assisted Russia's efforts to meddle in the election.
