Trump Accuses FBI of Spying on His Campaign: 'If So, This is Bigger Than Watergate!'

Source: Mediate

It has been 365 days since Robert Mueller was appointed to head up the special counsel investigation into Russia’s 2016 election-meddling campaign. Oh course, the since the investigation has prompted lingering questions about national security and the nature of Donald Trump‘s relationship with Russia, the president is marking the anniversary the way he knows best: attacking it on Twitter.




POTUS also referenced a piece in National Review saying Barack Obama opened an FBI investigation in 2016 that targeted the Trump campaign for suspicion of working with Russian cyber-espionage efforts. This comes after New York Times released a separate report detailing how the FBI was looking into Trump’s campaign ever since George Papadopoulos rambled about Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton during a chat with an Australian diplomat.




Trump’s tweet comes after Rudy Giuliani appeared on Fox & Friends Thursday morning to speculate about the FBI placing a spy in the Trump campaign — which the lawyer said “would be the biggest scandal in the history of this town.” 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.

2. He's right but for the wrong reason.

Having a president hire people under investigation for taking money from foreign countries and not reporting it is the biggest news ever. Our so called president is a criminal traitor and grifter.

3. Criminal outraged he's been caught

We've heard this pathetic whine since the beginning of crime.
I don't believe it's ever actually worked in favor of the criminal.

4. Is it bigger than a Cooke jar?

We could ask Jr but he might come up with something like this:



"It did not talk about what got them into the door and I didn't expand on it because I didn't think it was relevant to discuss what the meeting was not actually about even if that's what the email was."

8. The problem with always talking

hyperbolically, is people quit taking you seriously. Everything can't be the biggest, the worse, the most disgraceful, etc., even if you Capitalize Them and Repeat Them Over and Over again!
