Trump seethes over Russia probe, calls for end to ‘SPYGATE’

Trump seethes over Russia probe, calls for end to ‘SPYGATE’

"They feel the same way about Comey", one special agent said in a statment.

In a series of morning tweets, and later speaking to reporters, Trump assailed what he called "spygate", claiming that it could become "one of the biggest political scandals in history!"

In fact, the year-long claim by the Left of Russian collusion has been flipped on its head in recent weeks to the point that Trump's claim he was spied on - a claim mocked by Democrats and the media - has not only been confirmed but defended as routine and non-political. That group includes the top Republicans and Democrats in each chamber and the top Republicans and Democrats on the House and Senate intelligence committees.

Earlier the same day Trump tweeted that individuals paid a large sum of money to place a spy within his campaign and labeled his theory of espionage as "spygate". This is information that does tie directly into the Robert Muller investigation.

While Bannon says that special counsel Robert Mueller-who he describes as an "honorable guy"-should "not be fired", he said Rosenstein faces some tough choices and that ultimately he "is going to take the direct order of the president of the United States or I think Rosenstein will be fired". And Trump has taken up the cause as the White House tries to combat the threat posed by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into potential ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

Trump and his supporters in Congress are pressing for information on an outside informant who reportedly approached members of Trump's campaign. "What goes around, comes around!"

Atletico Madrid vs Marseille: The coaches
Marseille , meanwhile, are aiming for Euro glory on the 25th anniversary of their Champions League triumph. Atletico are viewed as the favorites in this game, in part due to their recent big-game experience.

Both briefings for will be conducted by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, according to the Department of Justice.

"For the President of the United States to pressure the Justice Department to reveal details and documents pertaining to an active investigation of the President's campaign, for the objective of denigrating it, is a gross and unprecedented abuse of power", Schumer said in a tweet. Information about Papadopoulos' contact with people linked to Russian Federation during the 2016 campaign triggered the FBI counterintelligence investigation that Mueller took over.

Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, an ardent Trump supporter, originally demanded the information on an FBI source in the Russian Federation investigation. Specifically, the president wants to know whether some in the nation's top law enforcement organization had political purposes for monitoring his campaign. And the White House said Kelly would organize the meeting with House lawmakers to discuss the documents. "How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?".

Sen. Chuck Schumer of NY, the top Senate Democrat, continued to push Thursday morning for the first meeting to be scrapped altogether, calling Nunes a "known partisan" out to undermine Mueller's investigation.

Schiff, who made the statement on behalf of the Democrats in the meeting - including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi - wouldn't answer any questions or divulge any other information from the meeting, except to say that there was nothing said that indicated wrongdoing.

Asked by host Joy Behar if Trump should be happy that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was looking out for Russian involvement in the election, Clapper said, "He should be".
