Report that Obama FBI spied on campaign could be 'bigger than Watergate'

Then on Thursday morning former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy appeared on Fox & Friends to talk about the informant, which he'd previously written about for The National Review. In a recent column, McCarthy said that Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of an intelligence firm, Fusion GPS, that compiled research on Trump during the campaign, had testified to the Senate that the F.B.I. had a "human source" within the campaign. Multiple Trump campaign officials have been charged over their connections with Russia, and over a dozen Russian nationals have been indicted over their role in Russia's interference in the American election.

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

"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".

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. "... Those facts appear to confirm that the FBI had opened the investigation on the Trump campaign based on other information - perhaps the 'top secret intelligence source'". Rather, it could suggest someone who may have had repeated contacts with the Trump campaign spoke with investigators about what they had heard or seen - a whistleblower, in some sense.

At least he got one thing right. Their concerns stem from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes' (R-CA) weeks-long effort to pursue information about an intelligence source who aided the federal Russian Federation investigation. "NYT slips in confirmation far down in story, and makes it out like it isn't a big deal".

Trump's comments came in a morning tweet.
