White House seizes on claim of Federal Bureau of Investigation spy inside campaign

According to the report, intelligence officials were investigating Trump campaign associates former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, then-campaign adviser Page, and then-campaign foreign policy adviser Papadopoulos.

Trump's comments came on the anniversary of Robert Mueller's appointment as special counsel to head the Justice Department probe into possible coordination between Russian Federation and Trump campaign officials, an investigation Trump repeatedly has called a "witch hunt".

He tweeted: "Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT". At the time, Simpson testified that former British spy and dossier author Christopher Steele had told him the Federal Bureau of Investigation had intelligence from an "internal Trump campaign source".

The Times report provided a detailed account of the initial stages of the FBI's investigation of Russia's interference in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign or anyone affiliated with it was privy to Russia's attempts.

"Congratulations America, we are now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History... and there is still No Collusion and No Obstruction", he wrote Thursday.

Mr Trump also praised his administration, calling it "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!

He said Mr Trump would only sit down with Mr Mueller if "we feel there's a way to shorten this thing".

Since his appointment on May 17, 2017, Mueller - a veteran prosecutor and former FBI director - has kept his silence on the investigation. 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. "If there's a spy, they got nothing from it".

He added: "We're going to have to look into whether we can challenge the legitimacy of the entire investigation".

After the Times piece was posted, Breitbart News ran a headline that said "Leakers to NYT Confirm FBI Ran Spy Operation Against Trump Campaign".

The Department of Justice has fought the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence over documents related to the source.
