Kim Meeting More Likely Than Mueller One, Giuliani Says

ASSOCIATED PRESS           President Donald Trump talked to visiting South Korean President Moon Jae-in as he departed the White House in Washington on Tuesday

"Even if Flood wasn't there for any operative parts of the meeting, the optics are disquieting", said Stephen I. Vladeck, a professor at the University of Texas School of Law. Later, the White House said it would try to hold the bipartisan meeting before the holiday. He says, "We are working to make that happen".

"If they insist upon carrying out this farce, the White House and its Republican allies in the House will do permanent, long-standing damage to the practice of bipartisan congressional oversight of intelligence", Warner said.

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.

Ryan, who is leaving town to attend fundraisers in Houston later Thursday, defended the plan to have two meetings, saying they were the "same briefing". A writer for the conservative media website The Federalist told Carlson that "everyone knows there was a Spy" in Trump's 2016 campaign.

Trump has sought to portray the issue as a scandal that he has dubbed "Spygate", and has called Mueller's investigation, which already has led to criminal charges against several campaign figures and his former national security adviser, a "witch hunt".

That's according to Kushner's lawyer, Abbe Lowell.

In a statement, House Speaker Paul Ryan wouldn't say what he learned, but said he looked forward to the "prompt completion" of the House Intelligence Committee's work now that they are "getting the cooperation necessary". Some also questioned whether their presence violated Justice Department policy meant to limit contacts with the White House to specific circumstances.

Rudy Giuliani said no final decision will be made on President Trump sitting down with special counsel Robert Mueller until "the details of this "Spygate" situation" are figured out.




A court filing appears to show that prosecutors have started to wind down the cooperation of George Papadopoulos (pah-puh-DAHP'-uh-luhs).

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

In an interview with Politico, the former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is also representing Trump, said that information from the meeting could help accelerate the investigation.

"And: "'Trump should be happy that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was SPYING on his campaign'" No, James Clapper, I am not happy.

"I think it is more inevitable than a Mueller interview", Giuliani said on Thursday to the Washington Post.

In a series of tweets Wednesday, the president said Democrats continuously go after a phony collusion with Russian Federation narrative, which is a made-up scam. He's overseeing the special counsel's investigation into possible coordination between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign.

The statement from the White House added: "They also conveyed the President's understanding of the need to protect human intelligence services and the importance of communication between the branches of government". He was there in place of Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the House Democratic leader, who received a last-minute invitation.

Nadler, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, pointed out that the intentional disclosure of the identity of a covert agent is a crime under the Intelligence Identities Protection Act.
