Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California released a transcript of the Judiciary Committee's interview with a founder of Fusion GPS -- the firm that produced a dossier that exposed the alleged efforts by the Russian government to help President Donald Trump's campaign.

The interview with founder Glenn Simpson took place during the summer of 2017 and the hope was, The New York Times reported, to shed light on Fusion GPS' work as well as the concerns in regard to the Trump campaign.

Feinstein's decision to release the transcript came after an op-ed published by Simpson and fellow Fusion GPS co-founder Peter Fritsch, in which they called for the transcripts to be made public and accused Republicans of concealing their testimony.

Meanwhile, Trump recently called on Congress to bring back earmarks in order to improve bipartisanship and pass more laws, The Hill reported.

"Maybe we should think about it," he told a group of a dozen lawmakers. "Maybe all of you should think about going back to a form of earmarks. You should do it."
