President Trump on Thursday questioned whether the Obama FBI “spied” on his presidential campaign, on the heels of an extensive report on the Russia investigation's origins that said a government informant met several times with his former advisers.
The New York Times sought to give a definitive accounting Thursday of the original investigation -- and in the middle of their report, revealed that officials confirmed "at least one government informant met several times with Mr. [Carter] Page and [George] Papadopoulos," both former campaign advisers.
The National Review's McCarthy had discussed on "Fox & Friends" Thursday how the FBI probably had “at least one confidential informant” with the campaign.
According to the report, intelligence officials were investigating Trump campaign associates former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, then-campaign adviser Page, and then-campaign foreign policy adviser Papadopoulos.
Reacting to the "informant" line, Giuliani told "Fox & Friends" on Thursday that if the FBI had a spy with the campaign: “That would be the biggest scandal in the history of this town, at least involving law enforcement.”
Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI “SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT.” Andrew McCarthy says, “There’s probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign.” If so, this is bigger than Watergate!— Donald J.

Congratulations America, we are now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History...and there is still No Collusion and No Obstruction. The only Collusion was that done by Democrats who were unable to win an Election despite the spending of far more money!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 17, 2018
