Trump on FBI Spying on Campaign: Bigger Than Watergate

Trump on FBI Spying on Campaign: Bigger Than Watergate

The theory was given more fuel Wednesday by a line in a New York Times story, which said "at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos", referring to Trump campaign aides Carter Page and George Papadopoulos.

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.

President Donald Trump on Thursday once again accused former President Barack Obama of performing clandestine spy operations during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"What happened here is that they did not have a criminal predicate to open an investigation on Trump", McCarthy said.

The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters - a secret type of subpoena - officials said.




"The Trump thing was a counter intelligence investigation".

Both Trump and conservative pundits and journalists alike have run with the "embedded agent" theory regardless.

The House Intelligence Committee and the FBI have recently locked horns over attempts from the committee's Republicans for the bureau to disclose an unnamed source. Nunes claims he has not made any specific requests or asked for the name of the source. They were apparently part of the FBI's frenzied, secretive effort to determine whether the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russian government while taking pains not to influence the election results.

Trump has previously claimed President Obama spied on him during the campaign, going so far as to allege his predecessor had wiretapped his offices in Trump Tower.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) responded to Trump's tweets in a speech from the Senate floor Thursday.
