Trump Suggests the FBI Had an 'Embedded Informant' in His 2016 Campaign

The meeting took place 100 days before Donald Trump was elected

"Andrew McCarthy says, 'There's probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign.' If so, this is bigger than Watergate!"

Trump appeared to be reacting to recent news reports that there may have been a top-secret source inside the Trump campaign providing intelligence to the FBI as it began its investigation into Russia's interference in the election process.

President Trump's newest lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani didn't hold back when commenting on recent revelations the Federal Bureau of Investigation may have spied on the Trump campaign; saying if true James Comey should be "prosecuted". "What happened here is they did not have a criminal predicate to open an investigation on Trump as they had an huge criminal predicate to conduct the investigation of Mrs. Clinton".

"Just as I promised the American people from this podium 11 months ago, we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reform in American history", President Donald Trump said during his State of the Union address Tuesday night. That has become a politically contentious point, with Mr. Trump's allies questioning whether the F.B.I. was spying on the Trump campaign or trying to entrap campaign officials.
