President Trump lashed out at Sen. Dianne Feinstein for releasing the transcript of an interview with the co-founder of a political opposition firm that commissioned a dossier of allegations about Trump's presidential campaign and Russia. Trump called the California Democrat "Sneaky Dianne Feinstein" on Twitter Wednesday, the AP reports. He said she released the testimony "totally without authorization" and in "an underhanded and possibly illegal way." He then added: "Must have tough Primary!"

Feinstein on Tuesday released the transcript from the Senate Judiciary Committee's August interview with Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS. Feinstein had the ability to release the transcripts as the top Democrat on the committee, and her staff helped conduct the interview with Simpson. Trump also noted in a separate tweet that the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election is the "single greatest Witch Hunt in American history" and says "Republicans should finally take control!"
