Giuliani: WH Wants Briefing on Info    05/26 10:28

   President Donald Trump's legal team wants a briefing on the classified 
information shared with lawmakers about the origins of the FBI investigation 
into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election. And they may take it 
to the Justice Department as part of an effort to scuttle the ongoing special 
counsel probe.

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump's legal team wants a briefing on 
the classified information shared with lawmakers about the origins of the FBI 
investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election. And 
they may take it to the Justice Department as part of an effort to scuttle the 
ongoing special counsel probe.

   Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump's attorneys, told The Associated Press on Friday 
that the White House hopes to get a readout of the information next week, 
particularly about the use of a longtime government informant who approached 
members of Trump's campaign in a possible bid to glean intelligence on Russian 
efforts to sway the election.

   Trump has made unproven claims of FBI misconduct and political bias and has 
denounced the asset as "a spy."
