Former FBI Director Comey: Agency Cannot Fight Foreign Propaganda

Rudy Giuliani

Now, the president is publicly arguing that this informant was not an FBI asset assisting in a legitimate counterintelligence investigation - but rather, a "spy" that the Obama administration embedded in his campaign "for political purposes."

Trump intensified his attacks Thursday, tweeting that it was "starting to look like one of the biggest political scandals in USA history".

Former U.S. Secret Service agent Dan Bongino told Ingraham that "the biggest open question" in this entire Trump campaign surveillance controversy is, "What was the genesis moment in this campaign?"

"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".

Later Tuesday, Trump tweeted, "The spy was there early in the campaign and yet never reported Collusion with Russian Federation, because there was no Collusion".

Memorial Day Weekend Activities Scheduled in Sandwich, Plano, Yorkville and Surrounding Communities
There are several area Memorial Day services scheduled at area legion posts and cemeteries. 11 a.m. - The Richard M. A Memorial Day breakfast sponsored by the Legion Auxiliary will be served from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.at the Legion Hall.

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has contributed his own "clarifications". He's been a key witness in the Russian Federation investigation.

"They can't indict Trump": Giuliani says Mueller "understands" he can't charge sitting president Special counsel Robert Mueller has acknowledged to President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani that a sitting president can't be indicted under current rules, meaning that the year-long Russian Federation probe is unlikely to unseat Trump.

Some Republicans in the House are calling for another special counsel to be named to investigate special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe and for the informant to be identified.

We also know that Mitch McConnell walked out of those meetings after seeing all that information and said, "I now support the Robert Muller investigation 100%".

There's no telling what kind of information was actually discussed in those meetings, but we do know that Democrat, Adam Schiff, the only Democrat allowed to go to that meeting, did come out and say there was absolutely nothing to confirm Trump's claims that there was a spy within his campaign.

The White House is also distracted by Yanny/Laurel social media storm
Yanny or Laurel - if you have somehow managed to miss this one, which I find impossible, you'll find the lowdown here. Laurel " audio debate and it turns out President Trump doesn't hear either of the names that have split the nation.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said late Wednesday that Justice Department, law enforcement and intelligence officials will brief a group of lawmakers known as the "Gang of Eight" after the Memorial Day recess.

The New York Times reported deep in a May 17 story that the Federal Bureau of Investigation placed an "informant" inside Trump's campaign who "met several times with Mr. [Carter] Page and [George] Papadopoulos", two of Trump's former low-level campaign advisers.

In Wednesday morning's interview with The Washington Post, he said the president sometimes seesaws on whether he wants to do an interview.

President Donald Trump responded to former FBI Director James Comey's tweet saying Trump's attacks on the FBI will do "lasting damage" to the United States by calling him a "rotten apple" and celebrating the fact that he got fired. He said he had advised the administration to include Democrats but downplayed Trump's attacks, saying he doesn't worry about any lasting damage to the intelligence agencies.

Sen. Chuck Schumer of NY, the top Senate Democrat, continued to push Thursday morning for the first meeting to be scrapped altogether, calling Nunes a "known partisan" out to undermine Mueller's investigation. "How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?"
