"The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public", she said in a statement.
"I understand Chris severed his relationship with the FBI out of concern that he didn't know what was happening inside the FBI and there was a concern that the FBI was being manipulated for political ends by the Trump people", Simpson told the Senate Judiciary Committee. "The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice".
Coming to his defence, his lawyer Joshua Levy said it was a "voluntary interview", and stated that he "wants to be very careful to protect his sources".
In closed-door testimony with the Senate Judiciary Committee previous year, Simpson was asked by investigators if Fusion GPS took steps to "assess the credibility" of sources used by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier. He added that when Steele met with an FBI official in September, the official told Steele the bureau "had other intelligence about this matter from an internal Trump campaign source".
Mr Simpson declined to say who he suspected the whistle-blower to be, but did not think it was a source of Mr Steele's. Simpson's firm commissioned the dossier, which was initially paid for by a conservative website and later by Democrats.
But in the late stages of the 2016 presidential campaign, Steele broke off with the FBI, Simpson said, because he did not believe it was taking him seriously enough.
Senate judiciary committee chairman Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham said they had passed a classified memorandum to the DoJ relating to communications between Mr Steele and "multiple USA news outlets".
In their letter, Whitehouse and Blumenthal echoed complaints by Fusion GPS that Simpson's testimony has been selectively leaked, and they rejected the idea the company's work was the basis for the start of the investigation into Russia's interference with the 2016 election.
"Somebody's already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier and no harm should come to anybody related to this honest work", Levy said late in the interview, according to the transcript.
Through much of 2017, Feinstein and Grassley made joint requests for information about Russian Federation and the FBI's investigation of election interference.
Grassley spokesman Taylor Foy said that Feinstein released the transcript without consulting Grassley and suggested it could jeopardize the committee's ability to interview future witnesses. However, a person close to the investigation said Fusion GPS has long anxious that Steele's sources could be in danger, given a handful of killings that took place in the months after the dossier's existence became known.
Republicans have sought to attack the credibility of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling in part by raising concerns about the Steele dossier.
