WASHINGTON-AP — A senior House Republican briefed by the FBI on its Russia probe is disputing President Donald Trump's allegation that the agency spied on his 2016 campaign for political purposes.
Rep. Trey Gowdy told "CBS This Morning" and Fox News there is no evidence of FBI misconduct or that the agency planted a "spy" in Trump's campaign. His statements appeared to contradict the president, who has said the FBI planted a "spy for political reasons and to help Crooked Hillary win."
Gowdy told Fox on Tuesday that after receiving classified briefing on the subject "I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do" in acting on information.
Lawmakers demanded the briefing following reports that a government informant approached Trump campaign officials.
