Bipartisan U.S. election probe briefing expected in June: White House

Source: Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A bipartisan group of congressional leaders will receive a briefing on the FBI probe into Russian election meddling, likely in early June, the White House said on Wednesday, following one planned for Thursday to which no Democrats were invited.

The briefing for the leaders from the Senate and House of Representatives, known as the Gang of 8, would take place after the Memorial Day congressional recess, White House spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement.

Two Republican lawmakers, and no Democrats, are expected to attend the Thursday meeting to review classified information relating to U.S. President Donald Trump’s suggestion the FBI might have used an informant to gather information on his 2016 election campaign.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer has called the plan to review classified information highly inappropriate and said such a meeting must include Democrats as a “check on the disturbing tendency of the president’s allies to distort facts and undermine the investigation and the people conducting it.”

It gets worse from there, though the article does place the onus on Trump for saying a spy may have been implanted in his campaign for "political purposes". Depends on whether you think espionage is no big deal or not.

1. Dems need to return the favor when they take over

Keep Republicans out of their briefings.

3. It almost sounds like Trump is preparing an entrapment defense

How did that work out for Senator Harrison Williams in the ABSCAM trial?

"They planted a spy in my campaign!"
