'Bigger Than Watergate!': Trump Thinks the FBI Spied on His Campaign

Andrew McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor, appeared on "Fox & Friends," the Fox News Channel morning show that Trump regularly watches, shortly before the president's tweet speculating about FBI informants inside Trump's campaign. In a recent column, McCarthy said that Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of an intelligence firm, Fusion GPS, that compiled research on Trump during the campaign, had testified to the Senate that the F.B.I. had a "human source" within the campaign.

"Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI "SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT". "What happened here is they did not have a criminal predicate to open an investigation on Trump as they had an enormous criminal predicate to conduct the investigation of Mrs. Clinton".

President Trump marked the first anniversary of the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation Thursday by repeating accusations that the FBI had a confidential informant inside his 2016 campaign and by calling the probe "disgusting, illegal and unwarranted".

The term "government informant" cited in the Times piece in no way establishes the government had embedded a secret agent with the Trump campaign.

"The Trump thing was a counter intelligence investigation". Their concerns stem from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes' (R-CA) weeks-long effort to pursue information about an intelligence source who aided the federal Russian Federation investigation. Nunes claims he has not made any specific requests or asked for the name of the source.

The report also revealed that a government informant met several times with Trump campaign officials, which validates a March 8, 2018 report from The Washington Post. "Spied. (Tho NYT kindly calls spy an "informant")", Wall Street Journal opinion columnist Kimberley Strassel tweeted on Wednesday. This morning's Trump tweet confirms that the intended audience for that statement was watching.
