President Donald Trump ripped “sneaky Dianna Feinstein” on Wednesday after the prominent liberal lawmaker independently released congressional transcripts of an interview with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson; claiming her move was “possibly illegal.”
The President unloaded on the prominent Senator after she unilaterally published the interview between federal investigators and Simpson, discussing sensitive material regarding the Trump dossier and Fusion GPS, the shady opposition firm behind the debunked document.
“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. Must have tough Primary!” Trump tweeted.

Feinstein’s decision to release the transcripts drew confusion and outright anger from fellow Senators who are involved in the ongoing investigation of the Trump dossier. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley called his colleague’s decision “confounding.”
WATCH: Dianne Feinstein STUNS Crowd, Says Trump Can be 'Good President'
Liberal Senator Dianne Feinstein stunned a crowd in San Francisco Tuesday night, telling the packed audience that Donald Trump will most likely serve a “full term” and could actually be a “good President.”
The prominent democrat was speaking to a sold-out crowd with former Rep. Ellen Tauscher when she made the stunning admission, saying Democrats need to be “patient” with the new administration amidst repeated calls for the President’s impeachment.
“I think we have to have some patience, I do,” Feinstein told the crowd. “It’s eight months into the tenure of the presidency … We’ll have to see if he can forget himself and his feelings about himself enough to be able to have the empathy and direction that this country needs.”
The audience immediately booed and hissed the liberal Senator’s comments, with some yelling “No!”
“This man is going to be president most likely for the rest of this term,” she added. “I just hope he has the ability to learn and change. If he does, he can be a good president, and that’s my hope.”
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the audience reacted with “stunned silence” to the Senator’s comments, with some hissing the liberal leader.

DEADLY DOSSIER: Fusion GPS Says People Have BEEN MURDERED Over Trump Dossier
The attorney representing the shady opposition firm Fusion GPS shocked lawmakers earlier this year, telling congressional investigators that somebody’s already “been killed” in the aftermath of the publication of the now debunked ‘Trump Dossier,’ raising new questions over how the document was financed and created.
Lawyers defending Fusion GPS used the strange assertion to help protect their sources behind the shady dossier, saying the firm wants to be “very careful” to prevent future casualties.
“He wants to be very careful to protect his sources,” Josh Levy, an attorney for Fusion GPS told the Senate Judiciary Committee in August. “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.”
According to Fox News, Levy’s statement is contained in a flood of transcripts released by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who published the lengthy interview between investigators and Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson.
“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. “The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public.”
