'Obama's Federal Bureau of Investigation spied on Trump campaign with informant', says president

President Donald Trump on Thursday once again accused former President Barack Obama of performing clandestine spy operations during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI "SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT". And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said.

Trump was referring to a National Review report published last week alleging that Obama-led agencies used their surveillance powers to monitor the Trump campaign.

Trump's tweets followed a New York Times report about operation "Crossfire Hurricane", in which the Obama administration's FBI investigated Trump's campaign. This comes after New York Times released a separate report detailing how the Federal Bureau of Investigation was looking into Trump's campaign ever since George Papadopoulos rambled about Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton during a chat with an Australian diplomat. "What happened here is they did not have a criminal predicate to open an investigation on trump as they had an huge predicate to conduct on president Clinton".

"The only Collusion was that done by Democrats who were unable to win an Election despite the spending of far more money", Trump wrote Thursday morning. But media attention has largely been on the allegation of collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.
