'Bigger Than Watergate!': Trump Thinks the FBI Spied on His Campaign

18 May 2018

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!"

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 USA authorities.

The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters - a secret type of subpoena - officials said. At least one government informant met several times with two of Trump's former campaign aides, officials have said.

He said further that he is not just a Pakistani citizen as the people elected him prime minister and he knows a lot of things. The Shehbaz-led Pakistan Muslim League-N had also said the statement to be against policies of the party.

"What happened here is that they did not have a criminal predicate to open an investigation on Trump", McCarthy said.

Trump made the comment on the anniversary of Robert Mueller's appointment as special counsel to head the Justice Department investigation into possible coordination between Russian Federation and Trump campaign official.

"The only Collusion was that done by Democrats who were unable to win an Election despite the spending of far more money!" "But the president this morning is quoting a Fox News commentator as his source", Cuomo cut in, noting that Trump could just pick up the phone and ask the Justice Department himself. If so, this is bigger than Watergate!

Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump's lawyers, told The Hill on Thursday that if there was a government informant spying on Trump's campaign it would be no "different that Watergate". Since then, Trump has considered firing Mueller, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and the deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein - drawing parallels to the Watergate investigation more than four decades earlier, when Richard M. Nixon ordered his attorney general and deputy attorney general to fire the special prosecutor investigating abuses in the 1972 presidential election.

If Comey was involved, said Giuliani, "he should be prosecuted..." "It's about time to say, 'Enough, we've tortured this president enough'". "Maybe the special counsel never should have been appointed". "This is not good for the American people, and the special counsel's office doesn't seem to have that, sort of, understanding that they're interfering with things that are much bigger than them or us".
