"It's time to admit the Russian Federation investigation was illegitimate from the start".

On Friday, Trump tweeted, "The Democrats are now alluding to the concept that having an Informant placed in an opposing party's campaign is different than having a Spy, as illegal as that may be".

Matthew Miller, a former spokesperson for the Department of Justice, on Thursday blasted President Donald Trump and Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee for orchestrating a briefing to unmask a confidential informant who allegedly provided information to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

A solid plurality of this contingent continue to avert their eyes from the facts and dismiss the claims of misconduct as peddled by tinfoil-hat conspiracy theorists.

WIBC host Tony Katz spoke with Margot Cleveland on his afternoon show, Wednesday. Along with the lawyer, Trump's Chief of Staff John Kelly also attended the meetings, but it is the lawyer's presence that raised major red flags.

The FBI at the time was investigating whether anyone in Trump's campaign worked with Russian Federation to help tip the election in Trump's favor.

There's no telling what kind of information was actually discussed in those meetings, but we do know that Democrat, Adam Schiff, the only Democrat allowed to go to that meeting, did come out and say there was absolutely nothing to confirm Trump's claims that there was a spy within his campaign.

The former mayor was echoing a charge that Trump tweeted - that Clapper has "admitted" the Obama administration's Justice Department snooped on his 2016 campaign organization.

The difference is that this year we have a younger team, a more inexperienced team, so maybe the expectation is not so big. When you create that feeling, anything can happen in football. "For me one of the best today was Moussa Sissoko".

The Justice Department official who would be the one to receive any complaints from Giuliani would presumably be Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller past year in the wake of Comey's firing and was present for Thursday's briefings.

"Attacks on the Federal Bureau of Investigation and lying about its work will do lasting damage to our country", Comey wrote on Twitter.

Trump shot back during a brief news conference with reporters: "What I'm doing is a service to this country and I did a great service to this country by firing James Comey". A spokeswoman for Ryan, AshLee Strong, said he would attend the first meeting instead of the second one. She said no Democrats were invited because they had not requested the information, despite calls from lawmakers for the briefing to be bipartisan. He was never a part of the Trump campaign.

We are told that Mr. Trump can not be allowed to have any say over the Justice Department's actions, since this might make him privy to sensitive details about an investigation into himself. He demanded in recent days that the Justice Department investigate the matter and turn over records to Congress, ignoring warnings from law enforcement officials in his administration, that sharing the documents would put the informant and foreign intelligence partners at risk.

"How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?" he asked in his tweet.

Clapper said Wednesday on ABC's "The View" that the president should welcome the use of an informant who gathered information about his campaign's Russian Federation contacts, since the objective was to gather intelligence about Moscow's nefarious plans.

"That would imperil the FBI and make it impossible to launch future investigations for fear they would be politically attacked".
