Republicans, no Democrats, to attend meeting on FBI campaign surveillance: White House

No Dems to attend meeting on FBI surveillanceTwo Republican lawmakers, and no Democrats, are expected to attend a meeting that has been scheduled for Thursday to allow them to review classified information relating to claims the FBI used an informant to gather information on Trump’s presidential campaign, the White House said on Tuesday.

House of Representatives Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, both Republicans, are expected to attend, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told a regular news briefing. FBI Director Christopher Wray, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Acting Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General Ed O’Callaghan are also expected to attend, she said.
