Trump again pushes claim Federal Bureau of Investigation informant planted for political purposes

"The whole thing is already a waste of money".
This reveals the absurd pattern we've fallen into.
President Trump's chief of staff, John Kelly, arrives for a ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House on Monday. He did, however, take a couple of thinly veiled swipes at the president. But NPR and other news outlets have identified him as Stefan Halper, a retired professor who served in several Republican presidential administrations. What we're doing is we're cleaning everything up.
The Washington Post's Glenn Kessler and Meg Kelly run through some of the iterations of this maddening pattern. "Spygate" is no more robust a theory than "tapped phones"-gate, but it's more important now because the political stakes are so much higher". Mueller was named Federal Bureau of Investigation director by President George H.W. Bush in 2001 and stayed on during the Obama administration until 2013.
He said that Comey is "corrupt" and that the Yonkers, N.Y. native "can't keep his big mouth shut".
Kelly and the White House have been brokering the conversations since Trump said on Twitter last weekend that he wanted to learn more about the FBI's use of confidential informants to interviewcampaign aides in 2016. "But what about an "Informant" who is paid a fortune and who "sets up" way earlier than the Russian Hoax?" Then they kept the results of their investigation quiet until after the election so as not to affect the outcome of the race.
Death suspected from West Virginia hepatitis A outbreak
Ray said hepatitis A isn't a chronic disease, but its symptoms can include weeks of fatigue and potentially fatal liver failure. Hepatitis is the inflammation of the liver, and the A variant is a highly contagious infection caused by the Hepatitis A virus.
If Giuliani files any complaints, they would presumably fall on the desk of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller a year ago following Comey's ousting.
The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee called Thursday for the Justice Department to investigate who leaked the existence of the informant, saying he's concerned it might be a member of Congress.
Democrats fought successfully to be included after the White House said Wednesday it planned only to brief two top Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday and make the bipartisan group wait until after the Memorial Day recess.
Republicans have not contradicted them.
Republicans had little to say immediately after the meetings. "It is a breach of the duty we owe to these men and women, who serve our country at great risk and trust us to protect their identities".
The comments were Trump's latest salvo over reports that the FBI used a confidential source in its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. "The important thing was not to spy on the campaign but rather to determine what the Russians were up to". Can Congress intercede in a DOJ criminal investigation?
He added: "Can anyone even imagine having Spies placed in a competing campaign, by the people and party in absolute power, for the sole objective of political advantage and gain?"
These are lies. They're not "unconfirmed", they're not "misstatements", and they're not "exaggerations".
A second classified briefing for Republican and Democratic lawmakers on the Russian Federation investigation has concluded on Capitol Hill.
Giuliani said the president's legal team would wait to see a report out of the briefings before making a decision as to whether Trump would sit for an interview with Mueller's investigators.
Trump lawyer and cable news presence Rudy Giuliani has been wavering on his client's willingness to testify to Robert Mueller, frequently presenting it as a "perjury trap". So we should treat his statements the way we do news releases from the North Korean state news agency.
"The collusion part, we are pretty comfortable with because there has been none", Giuliani said. "James Comey was one of them".
Trump's attacks on the media over the weekend may have been his most baffling.
