Coats says spy agencies to cooperate with Barr

President Trump

President Trump has ordered US intelligence officials to cooperate with Attorney General William Barr's investigation into surveillance of members of his 2016 campaign, the White House said Thursday.

In Thursday's memo Trump ordered the Department of State, Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Defense, the Attorney General, Secretary of Energy, Homeland Security, Director of National Intelligence and the director of the CIA to assist Barr in his review of the activities of the agencies during the FBI's probe into alleged - now debunked - collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

"Today's action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

The president's supporters largely applauded the order.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has attracted widespread criticism for his recent comments where he described the Justice Department's probe into the origins of the Russian Federation investigation as "un-American", following President Donald Trump's announcement to declassify documents pertaining to surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election. Trump frequently says his campaign was spied on, and Barr has backed him up.

But New York Congressman Lee Zeldin championed the new look, stating, "never again should the justice system be weaponized like this or Americans' intelligence be insulted like this".

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee leads one of the ongoing congressional investigations of Trump, called the action "un-American". "The more serious and clearly criminal of these obstruction events consists in Trump instructing those who worked for him in the White House to put documents containing material falsehoods into government files that were about to be subpoenaed, and instructing the same folks to lie to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents", Napolitano writes.

FOX Business Network (FBN) is a financial news channel delivering real-time information across all platforms that impact both Main Street and Wall Street.

"Insane Democrats to Barr: We MUST declassify documents or it's a coverup!" He has threatened that he might declassify documents that might be embarrassing to his Democratic opponents in the past.

In this week's fact-checking video, CNN's Jake Tapper details several claims President Donald Trump made in a White House Rose Garden speech. "I hope it's going to be nice, but perhaps it won't be".

The regime that rules North Korea will not resume nuclear talks with the USA until the Trump administration essentially takes the nuclear issue off of the table. Mueller's report outlined a series of incidents in which the president appeared to attempt to derail Mueller's investigation.

"I think the military option has to be real, I think the ultimate solution is getting Cuba out", Graham told McClatchy on Thursday. "Now they should go back to work and legislate!" For foreign policy news and views delivered to your inbox twice a week, subscribe here.
