Giuliani reverses course: Trump should meet with Mueller team

Giuliani reverses course: Trump should meet with Mueller team

Schiff said he does not believe the meeting is appropriate, particularly because the White House was involved in organizing it. "Rather than being sensitive to the clear potential conflict this creates, the president is driving a truck through the middle of it".

Republicans had little to say immediately after the meetings. Their presence was highly unusual in a sensitive congressional oversight briefing, and it raised the specter that top aides to the president could gain access to closely held information about an investigation of the president and his associates.

Trump and his GOP supporters in Congress are now demanding information on that informant, suggesting it's proof that the Obama administration was trying to spy on his campaign.

An initial Thursday briefing at the Department of Justice was meant to be only for Republicans, including House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes.

Nunes, an ardent Trump supporter, has been demanding information on an FBI source in the Russian Federation investigation, according to the Justice Department. He was there in place of Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the House Democratic leader, who received a last-minute invitation.

Israel considers the entire city its capital, while the Palestinians see east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state. Israel says it is defending its border and accuses Hamas of trying to carry out attacks under the cover of the protests.

"What goes around, comes around!", he said, adding: "SPYGATE could be one of the biggest political scandals in history!"

The "Gang of 8" includes the Republican and Democratic leaders from the House and Senate as well as the respective party leaders from the House and Senate intelligence committees. Apparently, Donald Trump's Chief of Staff, John Kelly, attended both meetings and his new White House Counsel, Emmet Flood, attended part of the first meeting.

A number of GOP lawmakers and USA intelligence officials will meet Thursday to review classified information about the source.

"The goal there would be to protect national security by figuring out what Russia's intentions were and their efforts to infiltrate our political processes", she explained, noting the use of an informant was a way to keep the investigation from becoming public.

Giuliani also said the president was unlikely to make changes at the Department of Justice and had no intention of firing Mueller, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein or Attorney General Jeff Sessions - all three of whom have come under sustained attack from the president. And Trump took up the cause as the White House tried to combat the threat posed by Mueller's investigation into Russian interference and possible obstruction of justice. "They're the same briefing", he said.

Sharif dropped bombshell in an interview with Dawn newspaper on Friday when he said: "Militant organisations are active". Ten Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants from Pakistan killed 166 people and wounded dozens in Mumbai in November, 2008.

As Michael Mukasey, the attorney general under George W. Bush, wrote in USA Today, "the ongoing investigation saps the resources and attention of the Trump administration".

'Clapper has now admitted that there was Spying in my campaign. Information about Papadopoulos' contact with people linked to Russian Federation during the 2016 campaign triggered the FBI counterintelligence investigation that Mueller took over.

"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 US intelligence agencies have said was a Russian-sponsored effort to help President Donald Trump win the 2016 USA election.

As for Comey, the FBI director fired by Trump, he has drawn sharp criticism from Democrats for revealing the renewed Clinton email investigation, which ultimately produced no charges. They brought documents to Capitol Hill but did not share them, and made several remarks about the importance of protecting intelligence sources and methods.
