Dems After DOJ Briefing: “No Evidence” Of Spying

Buzzfeed News reports:

Congressional leaders on Thursday participated in an unusual pair of meetings with administration officials to discuss the FBI’s use of an informant in its counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in 2016.

Democrats who attended the meetings said there was “no evidence” presented to support the claim repeatedly made by President Donald Trump in recent days that the FBI placed a “spy” in the Trump campaign. The meetings — which took place in different locations with overlapping but different attendees — were both led by FBI and DOJ officials and also included Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.

The meetings came out of ongoing requests by two House Republicans — House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes and House Oversight Committee Chair Trey Gowdy — to review the classified materials related to an FBI informant.
