Adam Schiff, the Democratic ranking member on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said Thursday following a bipartisan meeting with President Trump that the Democrats still think there was no active spy in the Trump campaign.
Schiff read a joint statement from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Leader Chuck Schumer, Sen. Mark Warner and himself after a bipartisan meeting with President Trump to discuss the possibility of intelligence agencies spying on the 2016 Trump presidential campaign.
“Nothing we heard today has changed our view that there is no evidence to support the FBI or any intelligence agency placed a spy in the Trump campaign, or otherwise failed to follow appropriate procedures and protocols,” Schiff said.
Trump has repeatedly stated that the FBI spied on his presidential campaign. (RELATED: Clapper Defends Spying On Trump Campaign As ‘A Legitimate Activity’)
The president tweeted Thursday:
Clapper has now admitted that there was Spying in my campaign. Large dollars were paid to the Spy, far beyond normal. Starting to look like one of the biggest political scandals in U.S. history. SPYGATE – a terrible thing!
