No evidence of ‘spy’ in Trump camp, Democrats say after intel brief

Donald Trump Alleges Spy Placed in 2016 Presidential Campaign

Here's what you need to know about Trump's latest anti-FBI conspiracy theory - and how he's using it to try to undercut special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe. Initially offered only to Republicans, the briefings were the latest piece of stagecraft meant to publicize and bolster the allegations.

White House chief of staff John Kelly attended two briefings at the DOJ on Thursday regarding the Federal Bureau of Investigation informant.

President Trump's lawyers have reportedly made an offer for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to interview the president, but they want to narrow the scope to questions on Russia-related matters that occurred before the election; reaction and analysis from former federal prosecutor Steven Mulroy.

Trump made similar remarks earlier this week, tweeting that Democrats had planted spies "all over my campaign".

Page has been at the center of ongoing investigations into Russian meddling and collusion with the Trump campaign in 2016 because of his alleged ties to the Kremlin.

Under direct pressure from the president, Justice Department officials agreed to grant Republicans a briefing, and only later opened it up to Democrats. This preposterous lie was dutifully repeated by Fox News and talk radio, ramping up pressure to the point where Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein felt it necessary to ask the department's inspector general to take a look.

The action then shifted to the US Capitol where Federal Bureau of Investigation director Chris Wray, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who oversees the Russian Federation investigation, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats helped brief the so-called Gang of Eight.

"This whole Russia Probe is Rigged", Trump said in one of three tweets that appeared as his motorcade returned to Washington from his golf course in suburban Virginia, where he spent about four hours.

Speaker Paul D. Ryan, who was scheduled to travel to Texas for a fundraiser Thursday afternoon, planned to attend the noon meeting, as well, rather than the Gang of Eight session, an aide said. At the last minute, Rep. Adam B. Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was also included in the first meeting.

"There's going to be a back-and-forth, especially what's the scope of the inquiry", Starr said.

The Justice Department had rejected Nunes' original request, writing in a letter in April that his request for information could put lives in danger. As the Justice Department investigates, politicians and pundits on the left and right are weighing in.

It remains unclear what, if any, spying was done.

Yet Friday morning, the president tweeted this: "Can anyone even imagine having Spies placed in a competing campaign, by the people and party in absolute power, for the sole objective of political advantage and gain?"

"I think we should make sure that only Americans are voting, as we should make sure it's only Americans who are trying to influence campaigns, not Russians, not all these people that Don Trump Jr. met with", Goodstein said.
