Classified collusion briefing features top lawmakers, Federal Bureau of Investigation … and Trump's lawyer

"I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes - and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!" It is refreshing to hear that now, finally, he's interested in actual evidence.

Would Republicans take kindly to that?

"I've never seen a Gang of Eight meeting that included any presence from the White House", Warner told reporters, clarifying that the individuals left before classified substance was discussed. In her first first full-length interview since leaving government, Haines also said she had been "very concerned" in 2016 about the degree to which Russians might have gained "influence" within the Trump campaign - concerns that were fueled by Trump's public comments about Putin that she found "wildly disconnected from reality". The president has spent much of the past week egging on the feverish conspiracy theory that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other denizens of the "deep state" were so intent on electing Hillary Clinton that they embedded spies in his campaign, with the latest in his #SPYGATE tweets claiming that the former director of national intelligence, James Clapper, admitted to as much.

Listening to Trump drone on repeatedly that Mueller's investigation of Russia's efforts to discredit democracy is a "witch hunt", the biggest in history - forget Salem, millions of Americans tell pollsters the "witch hunt" in Washington must end.

The informant was not imbedded or implanted or otherwise inserted into the campaign.

Since the breakup of his relationship and the decline of his consulting business, Page has gone on the offensive, sharing his side of the story as Washington politicians battle over the role that Halper, a British-American professor, played while informing on top Trump campaign officials starting in the summer of 2016.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence committee, said the meeting on the classified information had not changed his view that the FBI followed proper procedures during their investigation. If they didn't get what they wanted about a secret source in a case involving Trump, there would be no interview! He gave important attention to the alternative scenario that he and some of his conservative allies have been promoting.

"If that's true, why shouldn't we be taking steps right now to protect ourselves?" Trump tweeted on May 20. A slide called "Trump Campaign Components" shows how "fake news sites/avatars/content" were created during the early part of the election year and leveraged to spread "uncertainty" during the heat of the campaign.

Also Friday, Giuliani said special counsel Robert Mueller has narrowed his subject areas from five to two as negotiations continue over whether the president will sit down for an interview in the Russian Federation investigation.

They spoke "to relay the president's desire for as much openness as possible under the law", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. He was asked to contact several campaign figures whose names had already surfaced in the FBI's counterintelligence probe. So should we all. Republicans were more tight-lipped - perhaps because they, also, found no evidence to support the president's wild claims.
