“Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president,” Trump tweeted. “If true – all time biggest political scandal!” Trump first tweeted out the possibility yesterday, saying that an FBI informant in his campaign would be “bigger than Watergate.” Meanwhile, Giuliani admitted to Cuomo Continue reading "Trump Continues Pushing Claim of an FBI Spy in His Campaign: ‘If True – All Time Biggest Political Scandal!’"
Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president.
