Freedom Caucus chairman: Who was Federal Bureau of Investigation informant reporting to?

Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin

"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.

His latest line of attack, which Giuliani emphasized, was the assertion that a confidential FBI informant, who met with some Trump campaign advisers in 2016 while the bureau was investigating their possible Russian Federation contacts, was a "spy" intent on subverting the Trump campaign. Despite a previous assurance from White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that "no member of the White House staff" would be at the top secret briefing, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly will attend both briefings.

Trump has been railing against the informant for days, dubbing the incident "Spygate" and saying it "could be one of the biggest political scandals in history!"

During an interview with Fox News, Trump said that although the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a whole was great, people like Comey were "rotten apples".

House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said in a statement that "I can not and will not comment on a classified session" and that "I look forward to the prompt completion of the intelligence committee's oversight work in this area". According to a USA official familiar with the meeting, the briefers did not reveal the name of an informant.

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.

Trump's "spy" comments marked his latest attack on the FBI at a time when he feels mounting pressure from the ongoing investigation by Mueller, appointed previous year by the Justice Department, into potential collusion between his 2016 campaign and Russian Federation and whether he has committed obstruction of justice.

The source, Stefan A. Halper, a former University of Cambridge professor and veteran of past GOP administrations, had contact with three advisers to the campaign when Trump was running for president to discuss foreign policy. Indeed, Republicans have said nearly nothing about the meetings, other than Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who agreed with the Democrats.

In response to the tweet, the Justice Department immediately asked its inspector general to expand its ongoing investigation to look into whether there was any politically motivated surveillance of the campaign and agreed to hold the classified briefings.

Numerous questions obtained by the Times centre on the obstruction issue, including his reaction to Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal from the Russian Federation investigation, a decision Trump has angrily criticized. Flynn is now co-operating with Mueller's investigators.
