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

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

That person met "several times" with campaign national security advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, according to the report, which offered no additional information on the informant's identity or connection with us authorities.

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?"

Earlier Thursday, the president blasted the special counsel investigation, again, as a "Witch Hunt".

"As these revelations are making their way forward, it looks like the Trump campaign may in fact have been surveilled", White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway told Fox News Thursday.

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

Mr Trump's lawyers have been in negotiations with Mr Mueller's team for months about whether the president would sit for an interview.

During a Thursday (Friday NZT) interview on Fox & Friends, Giuliani, a former NY mayor, called for an end to the Mueller probe.

If Trump were subpoenaed and did not want to testify, he could always invoke his constitutional right not to testify against himself and decline to answer questions. Justice Department legal opinions from 1973 and 2000 have suggested that a sitting president is immune from indictment and that criminal charges would undermine the commander in chief's ability to do the job.

- DJ-Jazzy-Jew (@realDJ_JazzyJew) May 17, 2018 If you are going to say that the "Obama FBI" spied on Trump, then you must also say that the "Obama FBI" cost Hillary the election, the "Trump DOJ" assigned Robert Mueller to investigate Trump, and the "Trump Senate" says that Russian Federation helped Trump win the election.

If Comey directed this, Giuliani said, "he should be prosecuted". Mainstream outlets have also been commemorating the one-year anniversary of Mueller's appointment as special counsel on May 17, 2017. Manafort has pled not guilty.

"That would be the biggest scandal in the history of this town, especially regarding law enforcement", Giuliani said.

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.
