Trump Lawyer Attended DOJ Meeting On Confidential FBI Informant
May 30, 2018, 05:18
"Nothing we heard today has changed our view that there is no evidence to support any allegation that the Federal Bureau of Investigation or any intelligence agency placed a spy in the Trump campaign or otherwise failed to follow appropriate procedures and protocols", Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., and Schiff said in a statement. The White House provided no evidence to support Trump's claim that President Barack Obama's administration was trying to spy on his 2016 campaign for political reasons. It is refreshing to hear that now, finally, he's interested in actual evidence.
Brooke Singman is a Politics Reporter for Fox News. Trump is seeing him that way nonetheless. What could be wrong with that?
White House allies and supporters have floated the idea that a "human source" improperly assisted the FBIinvestigation for weeks. I doubt that he would be greeted with candy and flowers.
"I think the part to bear in mind, to sort of put this in more realistic footing, is that [US President] Donald Trump had been raising alarms in the foreign policy circles since late 2015 by calling for a rapprochement with Russian Federation, which in many quarters was being seen as virtually treasonous", Lazare told Kiriakou. Democrats immediately criticized the move, accusing the GOP of politicizing intelligence by initially excluding Democrats from the classified briefing.
"I don't have a great answer for them", Comey said of social media companies including Facebook and Twitter, which were major venues for what USA intelligence agencies have said was a Russian-sponsored effort to help President Donald Trump win the 2016 US election.

So far, 19 people, including Trump's former campaign chairman and former national security adviser, have been charged in Mueller's probe.
"His exposure is unacceptable", Nadler wrote to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray late Thursday. Trump told one ally this week that he wanted "to brand" the informant a "spy", believing the more nefarious term would resonate more in the media and with the public. He gave important attention to the alternative scenario that he and some of his conservative allies have been promoting.
Trump has accused Comey of having a bias against his campaign and taking steps to protect the Clintons in the past.
Mikel Arteta may replace Arsene Wenger
Henry may return to Arsenal as a coaching staff after Jens Lehman became the goalkeeping coach last summer. Arsene Wenger has claimed Mikel Arteta has "all the qualities" to be his successor as Arsenal manager.
But, behind his outlandish tweeting and table-pounding, Trump knows his audience well.
Rudy Giuliani said Sunday that if Mueller's investigators seek a court order to compel the president to testify, Trump's lawyers would fight such a subpoena all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, if necessary.
Q Thanks, Sarah. I want to ask about this meeting the Chief of Staff is setting up with lawmakers regarding the documents that they requested about the Russian Federation investigation.
Democrats, meanwhile, said that based on the information they had received, the president's claims of a political spy were unsupported. So should we all.
Trump has repeatedly referred to Mueller's team as "13 angry Democrats", although Mueller is a Republican.
