WASHINGTON D.C. — The House Intelligence Committee investigating possible election-tampering by Russia released more than 150 pages of testimony by Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson on Thursday, revealing the firm was aware of a number of Russia-connected business deals by then-presidential candidate Donald Trump that raised questions of money-laundering.

While Simpson did not say he had definite proof of wrong-doing, he told congressional investigators about "patterns of buying and selling that we thought were suggestive of money laundering."

The release of the transcript comes one week after California Sen. Dianne Feinstein surprised colleagues by unilaterally releasing her committee's interview with Simpson.

The committee's top Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff of California, said in a CNN report that the transcript reveals "serious allegations that the Trump Organization may have engaged in money laundering with Russian nationals," adding, "Thus, far, Committee Republicans have refused to look into this key area and we hope the release of this transcript will reinforce the importance of these critical questions to our investigation."

Connecticut Democratic Rep. Jim Hines, who sits on the committee, suggested any issues of criminality should be referred to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

"They're very serious allegations," Hines told CNN's Wolf Blitzer, "and, again, not one that this investigative committee has the resources to pursue, but one hopes that if there's anything to the allegations, those who live in the criminal realm, that is to say Special Counsel Bob Mueller, would be doing the investigation of those allegations if he feels that there's reason to do so."
