Top House Democrat Requests Probe Into How FBI Source's Name Was Leaked

Without mentioning the president's name, Rosenstein proceeded with a couple of pointed remarks, seemingly aimed at Trump's criticism of his handling of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's connections to the Trump campaign. The New York Times reported on May 18, 2018 that a longtime FBI/CIA informant, presumably Stefan Halper, met Flynn at an intelligence seminar in Britain and became alarmed by Flynn's closeness to a Russian woman there; this concern prompted another individual to alert American authorities that Flynn may have been compromised by Russian intelligence. "Large dollars were paid to the Spy, far beyond normal", he said, without citing evidence, before referring to the matter as "one of the biggest political scandals in USA history".

Intelligence leaders also held a briefing with top congressional lawmakers and Trump attorney Emmet Flood regarding classified information Republicans have pushed...

Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, who has worked closely with Burr on the panel's own Russian Federation investigation, accused the White House of brokering a Republican-only briefing to serve their political purposes.

In what appeared to be an extraordinary concession to House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the briefings were ultimately conducted in two rounds - one, at noon, took place at the Department of Justice and was attended by Chairman Nunes, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., Schiff, and House Speaker Paul Ryan.

It is unclear whether the Republicans who attended were satisfied with the briefings' outcome.

Rep. Adam Schiff, California Democrat, also arrived at the meeting.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said no Democrats were invited because they had not requested the information. "We first hear about the dossier, it's kind of fishy, then we find out later it was funded by the Clinton campaign", York said.

Worst of all, we're going to end up doing it again. After learning that there is zero evidence anywhere that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was attempting to do anything other than investigate what was essentially a Russian attack on our election system - just as Federal Bureau of Investigation agents should have done - Trump chose to tell three separate lies to the American public in the course of this single tweet.

White House involvement in an investigation Justice Department investigation is rare.

It remained unclear what, if any, spying was done.

In this latest case, we learned that in 2016, the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation when it discovered that people associated with the Russian government had made contact with Trump campaign officials.

This was two years before Donald Trump launched his campaign for President, but not long after Flynn left the Obama administration after criticizing its failures to identify and fight the war Islam has declared on America and the West, as outlined in his must read book The Field of Fight.

But Obama-era intelligence officials such as former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, and former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper blasted Trump for demanding accountability and transparency while claiming any spying was done for national security purposes. An "FBI informant" dispatched to glean information from Trump campaign staffers... is a spy, and to suggest otherwise is a lame attempt at covering up "deep state" wrongdoing.

The president referred to those investigating him as the "Criminal Deep State", claiming they had been "caught in a major SPY scandal the likes of which this country may never have seen before!"

Everything that happened in 2016 and 2017 needs to come out in the open: the botched FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server, the surveillance of Trump's campaign, the shady origins of the Russian Federation investigation.
