A transcript of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson's testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee will be released on Thursday, the Washington Examiner reports.

Simpson's firm is behind the controversial dossier, which included unverified allegations connecting President Donald Trump with Russia, the website noted. Simpson had testified in private in November.

The committee voted unanimously to release the transcript, Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, said.

"It's already transcribed, it's ready, it's just a matter of printing it out," he said.

Ranking member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said on Wednesday: "In light of the selective leaks of Mr. Simpson's testimony and misleading manner in which Fusion GPS' role has been characterized, I support releasing the transcript."

Earlier this month, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., released the transcript from an August closed-door meeting Simpson had with the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Trump has called Feinstein's release of the Simpson's Senate testimony "underhanded" and "possibly illegal."
