Gohmert didn't provide any evidence, and wasn't in the briefing with Gowdy and Ryan, but argued that unfounded allegations of spies infiltrating the Trump campaign is the latest indication a second special counsel is needed.
During a press conference on Wednesday, the House speaker said that while he can't weigh in on the legality of Trump's claim that he can pardon himself, he'd prefer that the president not spark a constitutional crisis to find out.
Sen. Marco Rubio has also said there is "no evidence" to support Trump's claim.
Paul Ryan, the US House speaker, said on Wednesday that Donald Trump should not pardon himself and pointed out that "no-one is above the law" - becoming the most senior Republican in Congress to speak out against the president's assertion that he has the "absolute" power to do so. But in a release, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr said the committee is cooperating with the department.
Compare that with Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Okeechobee, a member of the House Intelligence Committee.
On May 24, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray led a team which disclosed documents and delivered a briefing concerning what has come to be known as "Spygate" to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) and House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC).
Dobbs then launched into a tirade against Ryan, asking why Republicans don't say, "Mr". The Justice Department had no comment. Ryan and Gowdy attended the first briefing with Nunes and Schiff.
Trump has denied he colluded with the Russians, obstructed justice or committed any wrongdoing, and repeatedly calls Mueller's investigation a "witch-hunt".
"That will not change", Giuliani said of his insistence on seeing the documents. "The sooner the Department of Justice complies with all of our document requests, which are legitimate document requests, the better this is going to be for everybody".
The FBI was looking into Russian interference in the USA election and that line of inquiry led them to Trump, he said. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said after the briefing that he learned "nothing particularly surprising".
He said the department had brought documents to the previous briefing, but "I didn't need to look at them because I knew what they were".
