"It is scheduled to take place on Thursday of this week".

During a meeting Monday with Trump, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray also reiterated an announcement late Sunday that the Justice Department's inspector general will expand an existing investigation into the Russian Federation probe by examining whether there was any improper politically motivated surveillance.

President Donald Trump declined to say Tuesday whether he has confidence in Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, escalating pressure on the Justice Department as his White House negotiated rare access to classified documents for his congressional allies.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a statement that the plan for the White House to hold the meeting "where "highly classified and other information" will be shared with members of Congress is highly irregular and inappropriate" because, in Schumer's view, "the president and his staff should not be involved in the viewing or dissemination of sensitive investigatory information involving any open investigation, let alone one about his own activities and campaign".

President Trump on Wednesday asserted that the FBI's use of a confidential source to seek information from several campaign aides could turn out to be "one of the biggest political scandals in history!"

"If they had spies in my campaign...for political purposes, that would be unprecedented", Trump said Tuesday during a meeting in the Oval Office with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, calling it a "disgrace".

At the same time, some former Justice Department and intelligence officials say there's not only so far no evidence of a scandal but that Trump is overstepping the bounds that should constrain presidential interference in an ongoing investigation.

On Monday, the Justice Department agreed to investigate "any irregularities" in Federal Bureau of Investigation tactics related to Trump's campaign.

In response, the Justice Department moved to defuse the confrontation by asking its watchdog to investigate whether there was inappropriate surveillance.

President Donald Trump continued his Twitter attack on Special Counsel Robert Mueller this morning. It remains unclear exactly what the lawmakers will be allowed to review or if the Justice Department will be providing any documents to Congress.

The Justice Department had originally rejected the request from Nunes, saying his request for information "regarding a specific individual" could have severe consequences, including potential loss of human life.

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has called Trump's claim of an embedded spy "nonsense".

Attorney Rudy Giuliani told the New York Times that Mueller intends to wrap up the obstruction investigation by September 1, however, if the special counsel can't interview Trump on obstruction, that may no longer be the case.
