Lawmakers Briefed on F.B.I.’s Informant in Russia Inquiry

lawm FBI Fakers briefed on FBI informantTop law enforcement and intelligence officials briefed congressional leaders from both parties on Thursday about the F.B.I.’s use of an informant in the Russia investigation, a highly unusual concession to Congress all but ordered by President Trump.

House Republicans close to the president, led by Representative Devin Nunes, Republican of California and the Intelligence Committee chairman, had been pressing unsuccessfully for weeks for access to material related to the informant, issuing a subpoena and threatening to hold top Justice Department officials in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn it over.

Their case exploded into view when Mr. Trump seized on disclosures about the informant late last week, accusing the F.B.I., without evidence, of planting a spy in his campaign. He demanded in recent days that the Justice Department investigate the matter and turn over records to Congress, ignoring warnings from law enforcement officials in his administration that sharing the documents would put the informant and foreign intelligence partners at risk.
