Giuliani: Trump has every right to be briefed on FBI's confidential source

President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani argued that his client has a right to be briefed on the FBI’s use of a confidential source to contact members of his 2016 campaign.

“I think that the White House has every right to know, the president has right to know as commander in chief,” Giuliani said on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.

A group of lawmakers were briefed by the Justice Department and FBI on Thursday after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., demanded documents relating to the confidential source who made contact with three Trump campaign advisers in the run-up to the election. The source has been revealed in media reports as Stefan Halper, a former University of Cambridge professor.

Two officials from the White House, chief of staff John Kelly and lawyer Emmet Flood, did make brief remarks to the attendees to encourage as much openness as allowed under the law, but they left before the briefings began.

One would have to ask who is running this country the FBI?? I always thought it was our elected officials (Congress/President). Also, shouldn't a citizen who goes to another country and discredits our President and country be charged with treason. Example Clintons
