Trey Gowdy Dismisses Trump’s FBI Spygate Claims

Key Republican Trey Gowdy defends FBI against Trump attacks Republican in Russia probe 'even more convinced' FBI didn't spy on Trump campaign

Axios first reported that Trump pressured Sessions to reverse his recusal from the Russian Federation probe multiple times.

But former Obama administration intelligence officials and lawmakers rebuked Trump and downplayed his concerns, insisting that the informant didn't infiltrate the Trump campaign and wasn't really spying.

Napolitano went on to talk about the tension being placed on the relationship between Sessions and Trump, explaining that past presidents didn't have to "threaten the AG to get things done".

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) is defending the FBI after sitting in on last week's classified briefing about oversight of the FBI's campaign-season investigation into Russia's influence operation and possible Trump campaign contacts.

As per The Hill, Gowdy, who was later quoted by Trump said the US President was merely "expressing frustration that Attorney General Sessions should have shared these reasons for recusal before he took the job, not afterwards". Sessions, a top Trump campaign surrogate, announced the decision in March 2017 after it was revealed that he had contacts with Russia's ambassador to the U.S. during the 2016 election. "He said 'I didn't collude with Russian Federation, but if anyone connected with my campaign did, I want you to investigate it.' It strikes me that that's exactly what the Federal Bureau of Investigation was doing", Mr. Gowdy said. "Nor do I think he should".

Trump then added, "And I wish I did!"

In an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Giuliani said Trump "did know about the general arrangement" surrounding the payment, weeks after Trump denied any knowledge. (The recusal was a slam dunk, as Sessions had a clear and glaring conflict of interest in an investigation of a campaign he was part of on a subject he misled Congress about.) Now Jonathan Swan reports that Trump did not give up when the recusal was explained to him.

He says if Sessions leaves or is ousted, it would likely be seen as political interference with Mueller's investigation.

In language that echoed that of his accusers and critics, President Donald Trump alleged on Twitter that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team was "MEDDLING" in the upcoming midterm elections and blamed Democrats for "Collusion".

Mueller's prosecutors have so far obtained guilty pleas from five individuals, including three former Trump campaign staffers, and indictments of 14 other people and three companies.

Sessions has stood by his decision and continued to offer no public signal that he intends to step down in face of the criticism, despite an apparent offer to resign after Trump berated him and called him an "idiot" previous year.
