Meadows: FBI Should Have Warned Trump Campaign of Staff-Russia Conflicts

H3 emmet flood

President Donald Trump's legal team may take what they learn to the Justice Department in hopes of stymieing the ongoing special counsel probe.

Trump's latest broadsides set the stage for an unusual decision by the White House to arrange a briefing about classified documents for just two Republican House members, both Trump allies, in a meeting Thursday, as Trump and his supporters in Congress press for information on the outside informant.

The FBI and Justice Department on Thursday held a pair of high-level briefings for lawmakers in an effort to ease Republican pressure over the Russian Federation investigation, amid Trump's outcry over revelations that a confidential informant made contact with several of his advisers during the 2016 campaign.

He said the Trump team would approach the Justice Department to re-evaluate and acknowledge that there was a mistake and a whopping $20 million of taxpayers' money was wasted in the entire exercise, the AP report added.

Alberto: Heavy rains expected for Central Florida
The center said a tropical storm warning is in effect from the Suwannee River in Florida to the Mississippi-Alabama state line. On Sunday , the chance of rain includes the entire day, but storms will again be more likely in the afternoon in evening.

'Dangerous time when our country is led by those who will lie about anything, backed by those who will believe anything, based on information from media sources that will say anything.

Asked about one of Trump's tweets referring to the use of the informant as "Spygate" and claiming that it may be "one of the biggest political scandals in USA history", Haines said: "Surely, you realize that I think that's ridiculous". He was sent by FBI agents to talk to Trump campaign advisers, according to the Times, "only after (the bureau) received evidence" that the campaign aides "had suspicious contacts linked to Russian Federation during the campaign". She said Department of Justice officials are withholding information from congressional committees because they are possibly hiding a really risky secret.

Trump denounced the FBI's use of a secret informant and said that had been tantamount to government-sponsored political snooping for Democrats.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Nunes and the other members of the intelligence committees are simply doing their work as appropriate. Trump said. "I think of the things I've done for the country, the firing of James Comey is going to go down as a very good thing..."

Movie producer Weinstein to surrender on sex assault charges
Facing a jail bond of $10 million, he reportedly paid $1 million in the form of a cashier's check to post bail. Here's what attorney Gloria Allred, who represents several of Weinstein's victims, had to say in a statement.

The "Gang of Eight" includes the top Republicans and Democrats in each chamber and the top Republicans and Democrats on the House and Senate intelligence committees. 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". They spied on my campaign! Rest assured, if the meetings had produced even an iota of evidence that there was anything inappropriate in the FBI's counterintelligence investigation, they would have run to Fox News to trumpet their outrage so fast the soles of their shoes would have melted.

Or in Trump's version, pound the investigators.

Mueller is the politically driven former FBI Director who is now leading a witch hunt against Trump on unproven allegations that Trump "colluded" with the Russians to help him with the election.

Former FBI Director James Comey, who was sacked by the president previous year, responded via Twitter, denouncing attacks on the agency and defending its use of confidential informants as "tightly regulated and essential to protecting the country". "How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?".

Brexit border plan 'must be longer-term' says Tony Lloyd
It would keep the United Kingdom in the EU's customs arrangement until such a time as another solution was found. U.K. -EU negotiations are scheduled to resume in Brussels next week, ahead of a summit in June.

Last week, the National Review raised the question of a possible Federal Bureau of Investigation spy in Trump's campaign. "If SpyGate is effectively sold, half the country will already be of a mindset that the Mueller report is the product of a flawed investigation, even though that's unsupported in the facts".
