Federal Bureau of Investigation used secret program to gather info on Trump campaign

Alexander Downer Russia FBI Top Australian officials reportedly broke with protocol to allow Alexander Downer to be interviewed by the FBI

Trump's tweets followed a New York Times report about operation "Crossfire Hurricane", in which the Obama administration's FBI investigated Trump's campaign.

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.

The US president made the claim, without any supporting evidence, in a tweet following and earlier post describing the special counsel investigation into potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, "the greatest witch hunt in American history".

Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI "SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN IMBEDDED INFORMANT".

The president also appeared to reference an interview with National Review's Andrew McCarthy, who claims Obama opened the FBI investigation that targeted Trump's campaign. His tweet came after a "Fox & Friends" segment that referred to a report in The New York Times that said "at least one government informant" met with former campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos.

The vaccine requires storage at a temperature between -60 and -80 degrees C, tricky in a country with unreliable electricity. The experimental vaccine was shown to be highly effective in Guinea in 2015 during the deadly Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

"I would say to the president, it's not a "witch hunt" when 17 Russians have been indicted", Schumer said. Sorry to the Fake News Media and "Haters", but that's the way it is!

The courts have recognized that the government's use of informants is lawful and often essential to the effectiveness of properly authorized law enforcement investigations.

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!" Rather, it could suggest someone who may have had repeated contacts with the Trump campaign spoke with investigators about what they had heard or seen - a whistleblower, in some sense. His staff & family actively working w/Russian Spies & trading our national security for money to an former communist exKGB dictator is THE BIGGEST SCANDAL since #BenedictArnold.

At least he got one thing right.
