The Russian probe has continued into 2018, but not for long.

As more information comes to light involving the suspicious Fusion GPS dossier, those involved are getting shaky—and mistakes are being made.

One Democratic leader involved just gave a laughable excuse for her involvement in the case for instance.

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein suggested her leaking of information was due to a “bad cold.”

Feinstein claims the cold impaired her mental capacities in a way that allowed her to release key testimony in the Fusion GPS case early.

The Daily Caller reported:

Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein suggested a “bad cold” may have impaired her mental faculties and caused her to release Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee without telling committee chairman Chuck Grassley.

Feinstein published Simpson’s testimony on Tuesday, catching Republicans by surprise. Simpson’s testimony, taken during August of last year, covered his firm’s role in producing the infamous anti-Trump dossier for the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee.

Feinstein, 84, expressed regret on Wednesday for keeping Sen. Grassley in the dark, and suggested it was because of a “bad cold.”

“The one regret I have is that I should have spoke with Senator Grassley before,” she told NBC News. “And I don’t make an excuse but I’ve had a bad cold and maybe that slowed down my mental facilities [sic] a little bit.”

Grassley said Tuesday that Feinstein’s decision to abruptly publish the documents was “confounding” and said he expected the documents to be released “when we both agreed to release it.”

The anti-Trump dossier was created as a tool by the Clinton Foundation and Democratic National Convention.

Since its release, a witch hunt began against President Trump.

Yet over a year later, no evidence has been found to support the claims found in the liberally-charged dossier.

Trump took to Twitter to rebuke Feinstein for her involvement in the case.

Feinstein refused to comment other than offering up a bad cold as her excuse, nor did the Democratic leader offer an apology.
