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

Trump Tower in New York City

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 tweet was likely in reference to a National Review report suggesting that Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson's since-retracted claim before the Senate Intelligence Committee past year that there was a "human source" connected with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on the campaign.

President Donald Trump sarcastically congratulated America Thursday on the one-year anniversary of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, maintaining that there was no collusion between his campaign and the Russians.

National Review contributing editor Andrew McCarthy, a former USA attorney, accused the federal government of using covert tactics to spy on President Donald Trump's presidential campaign, despite having no evidence of a crime being committed. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said.

"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.

And in a third tweet, Trump said: "Despite the disgusting, illegal and unwarranted Witch Hunt, we have had the most successful first 17 month Administration in USA history - by far!"

Despite the disgusting, illegal and unwarranted Witch Hunt, we have had the most successful first 17 month Administration in USA history - by far! "Sorry to the Fake News Media and 'Haters, ' but that's the way it is!"

Donald Trump apparently has a mole problem - and we're not talking about the ones Stormy Daniels has seen. 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.
