Trump Demands ‘Tough Primary’ For ‘Sneaky Dianne Feinstein’ Over Release of Dossier Transcript

On Tuesday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) made some waves in Washington by releasing the transcript of a Senate Judiciary Committee interview with Glenn Simpson — one of the founders of Fusion GPS, the Washington firm which published the infamous Trump dossier.

In a Wednesday morning Tweet, President Donald Trump weighed in on Feinstein’s move to release the transcript. Suffice it to say, he wasn’t thrilled.

“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,” Trump wrote. “Must have tough Primary!”

Trump’s wish may come true. The 84-year-old Feinstein, who is up for reelection in 2018, faces a primary challenge from California’s progressive State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León. But Billionaire activist Tom Steyer, long rumored to be pondering a bid, will not get in the race — according to the L.A. Times.
