Top Congressional Democrats are calling on Justice Department and FBI officials to give them assurances that they did not give President Trump or his legal team information regarding the Mueller investigation or the classified briefing they received regarding the FBI’s use of an informant during Trump’s presidential campaign.
The letter pointed to the Trump legal team’s call to review classified documents regarding Stefan Halper, the informant who had contact with Trump advisers, and asked the DOJ and FBI for written assurances that they did not tell Trump, his legal team or White House lawyers about the information.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We remain deeply troubled by President Donald Trump and his legal team’s persistent efforts to interfere with the Special Counsel’s ongoing investigation and undermine your agencies’ lawful activities,” the four lawmakers wrote in the letter.
“These developments leave us concerned that, through his legal team or otherwise, the President will continue to pressure your agencies to divulge investigative information which he, his attorneys, and his congressional allies then could manipulate or even disclose publicly for the President’s benefit,” they wrote. “That would be a terrible abuse of power.”
According to the report, the letter was sent to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray. It was signed by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., ranking member on the Senate Intelligence committee, and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee.
