It also puts Gowdy at odds with House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who has been a sharp and vocal critic of the Justice Department and its handling of the Russian Federation investigation.

The move comes as Republican congressional leaders are publicly disputing Trump's claims that the government planted a spy in his 2016 campaign "to help Crooked Hillary win" - a reference to his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

During a press conference on Republicans' ongoing immigration debate, House Speaker Paul Ryan briefly mentioned the Trump-Russia probe, insisting that there is no evidence of collusion.

"At least we know that the third most powerful constitutional law officer of the United States of America does not believe that", he added.

Gowdy and Ryan were among a small group of lawmakers who were briefed last month in a classified setting on the FBI's use of the information after pressure from the White House to disclose more information to Congress.

Ryan also rejected Trump's claim that FBI investigators illegally placed an informant inside his campaign.

"SPYGATE could be one of the biggest political scandals in history!" the president wrote last month, one of a flurry of adrenalized tweets on the topic.

Rooney said he agreed with House Speaker Paul Ryan's support of House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy's assessment that the FBI acted properly in the investigation. The statement specifically notes certain questions raised by Speaker Ryan, but does not disclose what these questions were.

The Justice Department is conducting an investigation related to an unauthorized leak of information by a former staffer on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The FBI was looking into Russian interference in the U.S. election and that line of inquiry led them to Trump, he said.

Democrats made similar comments immediately after the briefing.

Ryan said Thursday that next week is not soon enough.

Trump made the pardon assertion in a series of Twitter posts on Monday in which he criticized federal Special Counsel Robert Mueller's criminal probe of whether his 2016 presidential campaign colluded with Russian Federation to sway the election. That echoed a House intelligence committee report released earlier this year.

Rep. Tom Rooney (R-FL), a top member of the House Intelligence Committee, has come out strongly against President Donald Trump's unsubstantiated "Spygate" claims.

He also issued a careful warning about Trump's recent assertion that he has the authority to pardon himself.

Gowdy, of SC, was among nine legislators briefed by the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation on the probe last month.
