The 'scandals' and progress of the Russian Federation probe

The 'scandals' and progress of the Russian Federation probe

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 USA history".

"I don't know where he's getting it from. And it is unprecedented in America", he told host Nicolle Wallace.

"No, absolutely not", Haines said when asked if she was ever told about the confidential Federal Bureau of Investigation informant who made contact with three members of the Trump campaign.

Trump's efforts to distort this story out of all proportion is reminiscent of the granddaddy of all the alternative facts he has served up during his presidency: the claim that President Barack Obama had ordered the tapping of his phones in Trump Tower. Trump's attorneys kept pushing Mueller for more specifics on what he wanted to ask, and eventually said they would need the list of questions.

Tucker Carlson on Thursday challenged former Hillary Clinton adviser Richard Goodstein on the "insane" claim that Russians not only affected the outcome of the 2016 election, but they decided it.

House Republicans close to the president - led by Rep. Devin Nunes of California, the Intelligence Committee chairperson - had been pressing unsuccessfully for weeks for access to material related to the informant, issuing a subpoena and threatening to hold top Justice Department officials in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn it over.

Page said he believes he was spied on by American professor Stefan Halper during the summer of 2016. They were spying on - a term I don't particularly like - but on what the Russians were doing.

While the president has continued to tweet denunciations of what he's calling "SPYGATE", there's no evidence the informant worked inside his campaign. "I don't think he's a spy. And I don't know who this person was".

President Trump sounds off on the Russian Federation probe calling the investigation "rigged". Rest assured, if the meetings had produced even an iota of evidence that there was anything inappropriate in the FBI's counterintelligence investigation, they would have run to Fox News to trumpet their outrage so fast the soles of their shoes would have melted. If Mueller's appointment really is unconstitutional, then Calabresi argues all of the actions he's taken since his appointment in May of 2017 are "null and void", including "all of the indictments he has brought, all of the plea bargains he has entered into, all the searches he has conducted, his phone logging of Michael Cohen and subsequent of referral of Michael Cohen to the Southern District of NY for prosecution, and any other governmental actions he has taken".

Clinton blamed Comey for contributing to her election loss because he announced a re-starting of the investigation just days before the November 2016 election. And earlier this month she accused the president of "tearing down the legitimacy" of the presidency.

The Justice Department declined to comment on the argument.
