Dear Friends & Neighbors,

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Democrat Adam B. Schiff (D-CA) said, on Thursday, May 24, 2018, that there is still no evidence of a “spy” in the Trump campaign, following the Justice Department briefing on a confidential FBI source who aided in the Russia probe. According to Adam B. Schiff, “Today’s Gang of Eight‘s briefing was to ensure the protection of sources and methods. Nothing we heard today has changed our view. There is no evidence to support any allegation that the FBI or any intelligence agency placed a spy in Trump campaign, or otherwise failed to followed appropriate procedures or protocols. Thank you.” Rep. Adam Schiff read to reporters on behalf of himself, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), and Senator Mark Warner (D-VA).
This noon briefing at the Justice Department on Capitol Hill was originally planned as a private briefing for two leading House Republicans on classified information they have been asking about FBI’s investigation into Trump’s presidential election campaign. But due to the reporting by the press, the briefing evolved into a meeting for the bipartisan Gang of Eight. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) received the invitation to attend, but she sent Schiff instead. Trump’s lawyer on Russia probe investigation Emmet Flood was among the group attending the DOJ briefing, so was the White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, in the classified briefing for top congressional leaders known as the “Gang of Eight”.
Senator Mark Warner also spoke briefly to reporters after the meeting, confirming that the White House statement about the officials leaving before the briefing began, and criticizing their decision to attend at all. He said, “There’s never been a Gang of Eight meeting with that kind of White House presence.”
