Trump claims 'Obama FBI' spied on him using an embedded informant

"I've written a couple of columns in the last week or so pointing out there's probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign", McCarthy said.

Trump appeared to be reacting to recent news reports that there may have been a top-secret source inside the Trump campaign providing intelligence to the FBI as it began its investigation into Russia's interference in the election process. 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's tweet comes after Rudy Giuliani appeared on Fox & Friends Thursday morning to speculate about the Federal Bureau of Investigation placing a spy in the Trump campaign - which the lawyer said "would be the biggest scandal in the history of this town".

McCarthy said the government purposely kept the Trump campaign investigation under wraps, because they knew they were on thin ice legally and wanted to avoid any public backlash.

It has been 365 days since Robert Mueller was appointed to head up the special counsel investigation into Russia's 2016 election-meddling campaign. "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".

"The Trump thing was a counter intelligence investigation". On Capitol Hill, firebrands like Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee - who has been criticized for his apparent bias toward Trump, even by members of his own party - has made repeated requests for highly classified materials that could unveil the name of the government source in question, despite intelligence officials warning that revealing such information could jeopardize the source. "It is a very big deal".

Then-Press Secretary Sean Spicer later attempted to clarify those comments, telling reporters, "The president used the word "wiretap" in quotes to mean broadly surveillance and other activities during that".
