'Bigger Than Watergate:' Trump Thinks Obama's FBI Spied On His Campaign

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

"What they did was use their counter-intelligence powers covertly to investigate the Trump campaign during the stretch run of the campaign under circumstances where they did not have evidence that anyone had actually committed a crime".

The President attributed this claim to Andrew McCarthy, an editor at the conservative National Review.

Quoting a former federal prosecutor he continued: "Andrew McCarthy says, "There's probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign". Simpson testified that former British intelligence officer Michael Steele told him the bureau had a "human source" in 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.

"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.

Simpson has said that person was Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, but McCarthy believes it was someone else, who the FBI planted with the campaign, not an aide who cooperated with the investigation willingly. 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.
