President Trump fired off another epic tweet on Wednesday, this time directing his ire – and a brand new nickname – at California senator Dianne Feinstein.
“The fact that Sneaky Dianne Feinstein, who has on numerous occasions stated that collusion between Trump/Russia has not been found, would release testimony in such an underhanded and possibly illegal way, totally without authorization, is a disgrace,” tweeted the President. “(She) must have tough Primary!”
Senator Chuck Grassley appeared to back up Trump’s claim of malfeasance by Feinstein, saying that she violated Senate protocol by releasing intelligence single-handedly.
More from Washington Examiner:
Grassley accused Feinstein of dodging protocol since “neither the special counsel, nor any other congressional committee, has released transcripts of private interviews in the course of their investigations.”
Simpson’s firm Fusion GPS was behind a now infamous dossier of allegations against then-candidate Trump during the 2016 election. In the testimony released Tuesday, the firm’s lawyer Joshua Levy claimed that someone has already died as a result of the document. Levy refused to identify the individual by name.
Trump reiterated his disapproval of the ongoing Russia investigation on Wednesday, referring to it as “the single greatest witch hunt in American history.”
“There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes,” the president tweeted. “Russia & the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing. Republicans should finally take control!”
Trump will undoubtedly endure criticism for using the phrase “possibly illegal,” but in reality he is being softer on the Democrats than they have been toward him.
Dems have been accusing Trump of “impeachable offenses” and “treason” since he took office.
