Democrats, Republicans Hold Separate Meetings To See Secret Russia Probe Documents

Two different congressional briefings will be held in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, for lawmakers to review secret documents in the FBI’s Russia investigation, including information that Republicans demanded to see about a government informant who contacted Trump campaign aides in 2016.
