Trump Continues Pushing Claim of an FBI Spy in His Campaign: ‘If True – All Time Biggest Political Scandal!’
President Donald Trump continued to assert Friday that there might have been an FBI spy in his campaign — a claim that his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, admitted to Chris Cuomo just hours ago wasn’t something Trump knew for sure.
Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president. It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a “hot” Fake News story. 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,” 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 this morning that Trump didn’t know if there was an informant.
“I don’t know for sure, nor does the President, if there really was one,” he said.
