Democrats and Republicans briefed on Federal Bureau of Investigation source who aided Russian Federation probe


FBI Director Christopher Wray, second from left, arrives as House and Senate lawmakers from both parties gather for a classified briefing about the federal investigation into President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign.

"The crimes that have already been committed against President Trump, myself and the entire Trump movement are much worse", he said. "As the White House's attorney handling the special counsel's investigation, his [Flood's] involvement - in any capacity - was entirely improper", the Democrats said in their statement.

Intelligence leaders also held a briefing with top congressional lawmakers and Trump attorney Emmet Flood regarding classified information Republicans have pushed...

"Clapper has now admitted that there was Spying in my campaign". "Large dollars were paid to the Spy, far beyond normal", he said, without citing evidence, before referring to the matter as "one of the biggest political scandals in USA history".

A legal scholar says the U.S. Justice Department needs to conduct a thorough investigation into growing evidence the FBI used the power of the federal government for political purposes to target an opposition presidential campaign. The reason is, because these meetings were about confidential and private information that is not available to members of the public about the ongoing investigations into ... not just the spy ... but into Donald Trump's campaign itself.

President Trump insists the FBI planted Halper into his campaign long before the bureau started the Russian Federation collusion investigation. "James Comey was one of them". They go after Phony Collusion with Russian Federation, a made up Scam, and end up getting caught in a major SPY scandal the likes of which this country may never have seen before! (The FBI says Obama didn't.) Or when Trump said that "the Democrats colluded with Russia"?

This outraged Democrats, who demanded that at least one member of the opposition party be included in the first meeting, so as to ensure that the administration was sharing the same information with Nunes as it was with the Gang of Eight.

"If SpyGate is effectively sold, then half the country will be of the mind that the Mueller report is the product of a flawed investigation, even though that is unsupported by the facts", he said. Ultimately, Democratic congressman Adam B. Schiff was allowed into the briefing with Nunes.

For instance, Halper penned a July 28, 2017 "Dear Carter" e-mail, assuaging him that new White House controversies may have taken pressure off him.

Nunes has been quiet about what exactly he hopes to learn about the informant, saying only that his request is part of an oversight investigation into potential political bias and abuse of power within the Justice Department as it relates to the Russian Federation investigation.

"[There is] a big gulf between a spy in the traditional sense-employing spycraft or tradecraft-and an informant who is open about ... who he was and what the questions he was asking", Clapper said on PBS Wednesday.
