Federal Bureau of Investigation used secret program to gather info on Trump campaign

17 May 2018

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.

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.

Trump's tweets followed a New York Times report about operation "Crossfire Hurricane", in which the Obama administration's FBI investigated Trump's campaign.

President Donald Trump touted a report Thursday alleging that his presidential campaign may have had a spy from the Federal Bureau of Investigation in its midst, claiming that if it's true it is "bigger than Watergate!"

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". "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".

Trump has repeatedly fumed about the investigation in public.

At least he got one thing right.

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.
