California Democratic Representative Ted Lieu said that Trump's demand could amount to obstruction of justice.
Two weeks ago, Nunes and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) received a closed-door briefing by DoJ officials.
Any improper spying by such an informant would render the entire Mueller probe "completely illegitimate", Giuliani told the Post on Thursday, before acknowledging to CNN Friday that they didn't know "for sure" that such an individual even existed. There is an ongoing investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into Russia's efforts to interfere in the 2016 USA election, whether there was any collusion between the Kremlin and Trump's election campaign and whether the president tried unlawfully to obstruct the inquiry.
Police officer shot in Maryland has died
Residents in the area of Belair Road and Klausmeier Road, in Perry Hall, Maryland, were advised to shelter in place. Gov, Larry Hogan announced Tuesday the US and state flags in Maryland fly at half-staff in honor of Amy Caprio.
"That's little more than a transparent effort to undermine an ongoing investigation".
"This claim by the president and the suggestion by Giuliani that there is a political spy embedded in the Trump campaign is nonsense and you hear it in the same terms that Trump often speaks which is "people are saying, ' or" I'm hearing, ' or 'we're being told, ' he said". The allegations have always been denied by the White House. Yesterday's tweeted announcement from Trump left unclear exactly what action he would request from the Justice Department.
As a pair of Post articles, dated May 8 and 9, explained, the DOJ has refused to provide the documents, concerned that the safety of the US citizen source could be endangered, and that ongoing intelligence investigations could be compromised. McCarthy speculated that the spy's information was the real source of the U.S. Russian Federation investigation. "Never mind that DOJ has warned that lives and alliances are at risk". Giuliani defended the president's actions.
The department said on Monday it will look for any "political motivation" in its own inquiry into alleged Russian election meddling in the US. "To me, there's not much of a difference between an informant's ongoing collection of information in a surreptitious way or a spy".
Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine Has Folded
Staff of the publication , which has filed for chapter seven bankruptcy, were informed of the decision in a meeting today. Baron resigned from Interview in April after almost 10 years at the glossy publication .
Trump met with FBI Chief Christopher Wray and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein about congressional demand for documents related to an FBI informant's meetings with Trump presidential campaign advisers. Only the release or review of documents that the House Intelligence Committee (also, Senate Judiciary) is asking for can give the conclusive answers. Schiff and other committee Democrats were furious and argued that Republicans had not subpoenaed many witnessed they considered essential to the committee's work.
In a statement yesterday, Rosenstein said he intends to refer any request to the inspector general, which is already looking into claims of political motivations in the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.
Without substantiation, Trump tweeted in March 2017 that former President Barack Obama had conducted surveillance the previous October at Trump Tower, the NY skyscraper where Trump ran his campaign and transition and maintains a residence. None of his activities were ever made public, and the existence of the Russian Federation investigation itself was not revealed until after the election - unlike the bureau's highly publicized investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server.
