Justice Department Offers Lawmakers Another Briefing on Confidential Informant

Speaker Ryan Dismisses Trump’s Charges of a Spy in his Campaign Speaker Ryan Sides with Gowdy over Nunes and Pours Cold Water on Trump's Unfounded 'Spygate' Claim
Andrew Cummings | 08 June, 2018, 09:13

"Chairman Gowdy's initial assessment is accurate", Ryan said.

Trump made the pardon assertion in a series of Twitter posts on Monday in which he criticized federal Special Counsel Robert Mueller's criminal probe of whether his 2016 presidential campaign colluded with Russian Federation to sway the election.

"It is shameful to see House Republican Leadership emphasize support for Federal Bureau of Investigation and DOJ intelligence collection on the Trump Campaign", Gaetz said in a statement. Until Wednesday, no GOP lawmakers were publicly defending Gowdy, but Ryan opened the door for party members to openly criticize the president.

The US Senate's Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, also discouraged talk of a self-pardon by Trump on Tuesday.

Before the House took last week off, members of the Intelligence Committee received a classified briefing on the ongoing Russian Federation investigation. But they eventually relented after pressure from Trump, Nunes and Ryan.

Asked whether Trump can legally pardon himself, Ryan told reporters at the U.S. Capitol: "I don't know the technical answer to that question but obviously he shouldn't".

Rep. Tom Rooney (R-FL), a top member of the House Intelligence Committee, has come out strongly against President Donald Trump's unsubstantiated "Spygate" claims.

President Donald Trump: "I have the absolute right to PARDON myself"
Trump's legal team is making clear that it will combat any effort to force the president to testify in front of a grand jury. Trump's lawyers said he did. "They're going to have to convince us that it's going to be a fair interview".

I should have known better. "I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me". Meanwhile, executive producer and co-star Sara Gilbert condemned her TV mom's comments.

The FBI was looking into Russian interference in the United States election and that line of inquiry led them to Trump, he said.

Ryan has been a frequent target of Democratic criticism for his role in aiding House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes' in his fight with the Justice Department for classified documents, including the latest dispute over documents related to an confidential source who spoke to Trump advisers as part of the FBI's counterintelligence investigation.

"It would have been helpful if we'd gotten this information earlier". The Justice Department had no comment.

The Speaker also left himself room to eventually backtrack, if he ever discovers evidence that confirms the deep state embedded a spy in the Trump campaign (then craftily declined to use any of the information they collected to keep Trump out of office).

On Thursday, after the Justice Department offered the new briefing, Burr said "I have a hard time figuring out what else they could produce". "You know what I'm saying?"

On Monday the president wrote in a tweet: "As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the absolute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong?"
