Graham Says Trump 'Probably' Shouldn't Use 'Spygate' to Describe FBI Informant

The president intensified his attacks this week, calling it "spygate" and tweeting Thursday that it was "Starting to look like one of the biggest political scandals in US history".

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 favour.

US President Donald Trump speaks after signing the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act in the Roosevelt Room at the White House in Washington, DC, on May 24, 2018. "What goes around, comes around!"

The president had continued to ring the bell regarding the FBI's actions during the 2016 presidential campaign, calling out what he sees as the "Criminal Deep State". Because the Trump campaign met with Russian intelligence officials offering campaign assistance, implicit in that investigation is an inquiry into whether the Trump campaign invited foreign interference and agreed to accept or facilitate it.

By now we've all learned to dismiss Trump's tweets as just the insane stuff that rolls around his head while he's watching "Fox & Friends", but this is absolutely appalling.

Giuliani also said the president would wait to decide on whether to sit down for an interview with Mueller until after they have seen a report on the briefings.

The FBI, Clapper said, was simply trying to answer the question, "Were the Russians infiltrating, trying to gain access, trying to gain leverage and influence?"

"He tweeted afterward: "'New Bombshell in the Obama Spying Scandal.

Over 1 Million People are Already Playing State of Decay 2
Players have killed over 675 million zombies, thrown over six million firecrackers, and eaten over six million bags of snacks. And while that's some impressive stats, it appears that Microsoft's gamble on the Xbox Game Pass has paid off.

While special counsel Robert Mueller looks into the question of collusion, President Trump has derided the probe as a "witch hunt" and raised an unsubstantiated claim that the Federal Bureau of Investigation planted a "spy" in his campaign in response to reports that a confidential government source spoke with two of his campaign aides during the campaign.

Confirming the existence of a "confidential human source", House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., said the intelligence gathering on individuals connected to the Trump campaign started before the official FBI investigation, which begs some questions about who directed it. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had said Tuesday that only Nunes and Gowdy would be briefed, because they were the only ones to request information.

Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Trump said he expects "total transparency" from Justice officials. "You have to have transparency". When asked if Trump told him that, Giuliani said no but that it's a safe assumption. As The Washington Post's Aaron Blake notes, Clapper didn't say what Trump says he did.

House Intelligence Committee ranking Democrat Adam Schiff, Calif., said in a statement that Flood's "involvement - in any capacity - was entirely improper, and I made this clear to him".

The guest lists were uncertain even hours before the meetings were to take place. Many think that this is another part of Trump's public relations war on the Justice Department for continuing the Russian Federation investigation and his deeply felt conviction that he is above the law. It is common practice for the FBI to use confidential sources to help advance investigations, and they are not considered spies. "How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?".

It may even take the matter to the Justice Department in a bid to stop the special counsel probe which completed a year this month.

In a separate television appearance, Giuliani said Trump was "adamant" about wanting to agree to an interview, saying, "If he wasn't thinking about it and it wasn't an active possibility, we would be finished with that by now and we would have moved on to getting the investigation over with another way". The deputy attorney general relented after Trump's demand that the Justice Department comply. "We're cleaning everything up". What we're doing is we're cleaning everything up.

Shortly after 9:30 a.m., he fired off a two-word message in all capital letters: "WITCH HUNT!"
