Title: Trump and the Justice Department
Post by: Dreamer on May 22, 2018, 11:36:53 AM
Lawmakers will soon be able to look at highly classified information related to the Russia investigation after officials from the Justice Department, the FBI and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence met at the White House and agreed to let members of Congress review it. This all comes as the controversy over the FBI's use of a confidential source during the 2016 campaign grows. President Trump said the source was essentially a spy "embedded" in his campaign, but US officials told CNN that's not true. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein ordered the Justice Department's inspector general to look into the matter.

This deal doesn't fully settle the issue of whether Justice will ultimately have to hand over documents related to the FBI source, which have been subpoenaed by the House Intelligence Committee. The Justice Department says sharing info on the source threatens national security, but committee Chairman Devin Nunes has threatened to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt if his panel doesn't get them.

The fact that people need to ask for examples when considering whether Trump has indeed ever been caught lying is insane.
