DOJ and FBI Offer More Spygate Details to Bipartisan Congressional Leaders

Speaker Ryan Dismisses Trump’s Charges of a Spy in his Campaign

Joe Scarborough praised House Speaker Paul Ryan Thursday morning for showing a "sign of life" by pushing back on President Donald Trump's claim that he can pardon himself. "Speaker Ryan needs to step up, he needs to join us in a call for a second special counsel, and for goodness sakes, stop defending the FBI's collection of intelligence on the Trump campaign when they refuse to give us the documents to show whether or not they broke the law".

Mr. Ryan said that lawmakers.

That did not stop the President's supporters from subsequently going after Gowdy, a fact which clearly rankled Ryan who has largely avoided contradicting Trump since clashes early on in his presidency.

On Wednesday, as Ryan discredited Trump's spy claims, he nonetheless stressed that lawmakers expected other document requests to be fulfilled, noting, "We have some more digging to do". "President Trump and Russia", Ryan said at his weekly news conference.

The Justice Department says it will offer a third classified briefing for lawmakers next week on the FBI's handling of its Russian Federation probe.

Compare that with Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Okeechobee, a member of the House Intelligence Committee.

Dobbs then launched into a tirade against Ryan, asking why Republicans don't say, "Mr".

Ryan, Gowdy and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes attended a classified briefing with officials from the FBI and Justice Department last month to review material related to the investigation.

"There is no defense today for Paul Ryan siding with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice against those of us in the Congress who are working for transparency and accountability", Representative Matt Gaetz told Fox Business Network's Lou Dobbs.

Gaetz concluded saying that he was hearing for the first time from his colleagues in the Congress that they might need to replace Ryan as the House Speaker.

"That will not change", Giuliani said of his insistence on seeing the documents.

Democratic congressional leaders have said that giving Trump or his lawyers access to the materials would set a risky precedent for an ongoing investigation and have asked the Justice Department to let them know if they do give that access.

According to a senior DOJ official's statement to Politico, this latter group, consisting of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and the chairs and ranking members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, will reconvene on Monday or Tuesday to receive additional documents.
