White House lawyer Emmet Flood attended the start of two classified Justice Department briefings with lawmakers on a confidential intelligence source, adding to Democratic concerns that White House staff were taking part in the briefings on classified information that was related to the Russian Federation investigation.
Use of the informant originated under former President Obama's Justice Department and before Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE's appointment as special counsel.
In this latest case, we learned that in 2016, the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation when it discovered that people associated with the Russian government had made contact with Trump campaign officials.
Some of Trump's allies have privately feared that the President's call for an investigation into the FBI's conduct - which Rosenstein granted Sunday when he referred the matter to the Justice Department inspector general - could ultimately do more harm than good to their months-long efforts. And he's still got two and a half years to go. Nunes also attended the meeting on Thursday.

That group includes Schiff, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senator Mark Warner, vice chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. "I do think, though, even knowing that, I'm not sure our reactions would have been any different". "Widespread Spying involving multiple people.'

Trump and his supporters have cast the apparent informant as a mole possibly sent by the Obama administration to burrow into his campaign.
Yes, that's the president of the United States, "hereby demanding" an investigation into the investigation of him, and along with it an investigation into his political enemies.

He invited Trump's attorney, whose job is to defend him in the investigation, to the meeting. A White House lawyer, Emmet Flood, and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly showed up for both briefings, although the White House had earlier said it would keep a distance, drawing criticism from Democrats.
