- Meetings follow Trump claim of ‘spy’ in his election campaign
- Adam Schiff: ‘Emmet Flood’s presence … was entirely improper’
Two much anticipated congressional briefings on the FBI’s use of an informant in the investigation into potential Russian collusion with the Trump campaign in 2016 featured an unusual guest on Thursday: Donald Trump’s lawyer Emmet Flood.
Flood, along with the White House chief of staff, John Kelly, attended two separate briefings. The first was held at the Department of Justice initially for two top Republicans, Devin Nunes, the chair of the House intelligence committee, and Trey Gowdy, the chair of the House government oversight and reform committee.
