Trump brands latest attempt to discredit Russia investigation 'spygate'

There is no evidence to suggest that the source was inserted into the Trump campaign, as the president has suggested, but the source did seek out and meet Trump campaign advisers. "What goes around, comes around!"

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".

The fact that we know his name at all: Halper is in the news because Trump and his allies in Congress have made his activities a target in their attempts to investigate (and, you could argue, undermine) the Russian Federation investigation of Trump's campaign. The informant spoke with Trump advisers only after there had been links to Russian Federation deemed suspicious, according to The New York Times.

Or, as Trump calls the source, "spy". "They feel the same way about Comey", one special agent said in a statment. Napolitano appeared on "Fox & Friends" earlier Wednesday morning.

With just a few weeks remaining before the potential meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, some, including top US officials, are not certain the summit will occur.

TRUMP tweet: "Clapper has now admitted that there was Spying in my campaign". TheWashington Post's David Ignatius said, "Those who know Halper describe someone closer to a gregarious busybody and academic eccentric - an intellectual who jostles for first billing on a book cover - than a mole burrowing toward Trump's inner circle".

Democrats Won't Get Data on Trump Campaign Intel Source

The White House held a pair of classified briefings Thursday with senior congressional leaders on the FBI's use of a confidential informant to investigate alleged Russian ties to the Trump campaign.

The former NY mayor said he was handling much of the public-facing role for Trump's legal team, while Jane and Martin Raskin - two new Florida lawyers on the team - are reviewing facts and interacting with Mueller's office. I hope it's not so, because if it is, there's never been anything like it in the history of our country. "You have to have transparency". The White House had announced shortly before the bipartisan meeting was scheduled that they were working on holding a briefing for the "Gang of Eight" before the Memorial Day recess.

The White House later said in a statement that Kelly and Flood made brief remarks at the beginning of the meeting to "relay the President's desire for as much openness as possible" and departed before it actually began.

White House involvement in an investigation Justice Department investigation is rare. He tweeted Wednesday morning that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been caught in a "major SPY scandal". But NPR and other news outlets have identified him as Stefan Halper, a retired professor who served in several Republican presidential administrations.

Some of Trump's allies have privately feared that the President's call for an investigation into the FBI's conduct - which Rosenstein granted Sunday when he referred the matter to the Justice Department inspector general - could ultimately do more harm than good to their months-long efforts.

Former U.S. FBI Director James Comey said that social media companies needed to "worry" about foreign political propaganda on their networks, but he had few ideas on how to counter it.

U.S. President Donald Trump is on a risky path in his open battle with the U.S. Justice Department, which experts bill as a bad sign for the future of U.S. democracy. "It is a breach of the duty we owe to these men and women, who serve our country at great risk and trust us to protect their identities".
