'Clapper has now admitted that there was Spying in my campaign. Mueller took over the investigation when he was appointed special counsel in May 2017.
Former FBI Director James Comey, who was sacked by Trump previous year, tweeted Wednesday morning that the agency's use of secret informants was "tightly regulated and essential to protecting the country".
"I don't think he is going to make changes". It's a waste of $20 million of the taxpayers' money.
Sanders says FBI Director Christopher Wray, National Intelligence Director Dan Coats and Justice Department official Edward O'Callaghan will meet with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy. What use, if any, was made of information learned to assist the Clinton campaign?
"What motivated putting him in?" If rogue officials in federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies sought actively to keep him out of office, Americans need to know the details - and they need assurances the bad apples are being kicked out and punished. "What did they get?" "But we'll find out", Trump began. And why did they hide it for so long?
Some Senate Republicans have asked to be invited to the meeting as well, arguing that they should be included.
Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee looked at this set of facts, and concluded that Trump's allegations of malfeasance were so alarming and well-founded, those charges justified forcing the FBI to out its informant, demanding investigators disclose sensitive information about their ongoing investigation in a classified briefing - and inviting the president's lawyer to attend said briefing about the investigation of his client.
White House allies and supporters have floated the idea that a "human source" improperly assisted the FBI investigation for weeks.

Guatemala joins the US in moving its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem
Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war and later annexed it in a move not recognised internationally. The high-profile opening of the US embassy to Israel in Jerusalem raised tensions to the boiling point this week.
In a statement, the White House said that Flood and Kelly went to the Department of Justice and Capitol Hill "to facilitate meetings between Members of Congress, DOJ, FBI, and DNI".
"He has a strong view that he should testify", Giuliani said.
"He's not the subject or target of that investigation". Former New York mayor Giuliani recently joined Trump's legal team. "Moreover, I assume President Obama knew about it".
It is unclear whether the Republicans who attended were satisfied with the briefings' outcome. According to a USA official familiar with the broader of the two meetings, the briefers did not reveal the name of the informant. They brought documents but did not share them, and made several remarks about the importance of protecting intelligence sources and methods. The person declined to be identified because the briefing was classified.
It remains unclear what, if any, spying was done.
According to the Times, the FBI used an informant, rather than sending its own agents to do interviews, because it feared a more aggressive approach might lead to leaks that an investigation was underway, which could improperly influence the election. Democrats say that the entire episode - including the president's involvement - is the latest gambit by Nunes and Trump to undermine the special counsel, Robert Mueller and gain information about his inquiry.
In Wednesday morning's interview with The Washington Post, he said the president sometimes seesaws on whether he wants to do an interview.
