'Obama's Federal Bureau of Investigation spied on Trump campaign with informant', says president

On the anniversary of Robert Mueller's Russia investigation US President Donald Trump has repeated claims the FBI spied

"Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI "SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT".

But claims by Trump allies that there was an informant embedded inside the campaign have not been substantiated.

- DJ-Jazzy-Jew (@realDJ_JazzyJew) May 17, 2018 If you are going to say that the "Obama FBI" spied on Trump, then you must also say that the "Obama FBI" cost Hillary the election, the "Trump DOJ" assigned Robert Mueller to investigate Trump, and the "Trump Senate" says that Russian Federation helped Trump win the election.

Trump's tweet refers to an article penned by McCarthy and published by National Review on Saturday.

"Essentially what he told me was they had other intelligence about this matter from an internal Trump campaign source", Simpson said in his Senate testimony.

Page did not immediately respond to a text from TPM seeking comment.

"Fusion GPS explained to friendly media that [Simpson had] "mischaracterized" the source". Oh course, the since the investigation has prompted lingering questions about national security and the nature of Donald Trump's relationship with Russian Federation, the president is marking the anniversary the way he knows best: attacking it on Twitter. "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".

At least he got one thing right.

The "Trump FBI" is investigating yourself... and making indictments.

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.

Trump's tweets followed a New York Times report about operation "Crossfire Hurricane", in which the Obama administration's FBI investigated Trump's campaign. "Spied. (Tho NYT kindly calls spy an "informant")", Wall Street Journal opinion columnist Kimberley Strassel tweeted on Wednesday. Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory.
