Donald Trump marks Mueller anniversary by claiming Federal Bureau of Investigation 'spied' on his campaign

"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!"

According to the report, agencies led by Obama monitored Trump's presidential campaign.

Mr McCarthy, a contributing editor at the National Review, wrote an article published last week headlined "Did the FBI Have a Spy in the Trump Campaign?" He said the legal team is "pretty comfortable, in the circumstances of this case, that they wouldn't be able to subpoena him personally".

In some sense, many analysts have said, he is right: Efforts by a hostile foreign power to influence a US presidential election - with or without the assistance or knowledge of the winning candidate - may well be a scandal "bigger than Watergate!"

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.

McCarthy said the FBI could not have spoken publicly before the election about the Trump-Russia investigation, as they did with the Clinton email probe, since it was classified.

The suggestion seems meant to undercut the work by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Just when US President Donald Trump was facing increasing pressure over allegations of his campaign having a collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign and that he repaid his attorney for paying hush money to a porn actress to keep mum about her alleged sexual encounter with the president more than a decade ago, he came up with a new allegation against the administration of his immediate predecessor Barack Obama.

"Mueller should now bring this to a close", said Giuliani.

Mr Giuliani has been urging Mr Mueller's team to wrap up the investigation now that the probe has reached the one-year mark.

"It's about time to say enough. Maybe a special counsel, special prosecutor, never should have been appointed".
