Trump Promises to Investigate FBI Spying

Donald Trump declared on Twitter that he would have the government investigate FBI spying.

Here is CNN’s “story” on Donald Trump’s tweet saying he would order that the government investigate FBI spying. It is amazing to see so many people who are supposed to be knowledgeable get amnesia about the most basic context of Trump’s tweets. But the best part was when CNN “legal” analyst and former Mueller colleague (!) Michael Zeldin admitted that, yes, Trump has the authority to demand that the FBI investigate FBI spying, but should no do so because it would look “partisan.”

These traitors are completely brazen and shameless.

Politico reports, “Trump demands DOJ look into whether FBI ‘infiltrated or surveilled’ his campaign.

President Donald Trump on Sunday vowed to formally request that the Justice Department look into whether the FBI “infiltrated or surveilled” his campaign for political reasons, as he embarked on a Twitter tirade that also included slamming a report that his oldest son in 2016 sought favor with foreign countries besides Russia.

“I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!,” the president wrote […].

Trump was responding to reports that an FBI informant had talked to campaign advisers investigators believed had suspicious contacts with Russia-linked people. Trump said Saturday after the reports emerged that it would be “a really big deal” if the FBI was “infiltrating” his team.

The Justice Department declined to comment on Sunday. The DOJ inspector general has already announced an investigation of how the FBI obtained permission to conduct surveillance of former Trump adviser Carter Page, one of the people said to have been approached by the informant in 2016. The inspector general’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Lawmakers also have been seeking information on the FBI source’s role in the probe. The Justice Department recently denied a request for details by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, saying it would threaten national security.

In a eight-part gripe that stretched into the afternoon, Trump also said Sunday that investigators should be looking at 2016 campaign rival Hillary Clinton and asked why Democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta, whose firm shut down last year after becoming linked to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, hadn’t been arrested.
