Trump blasts ‘Criminal Deep State’ over ‘SPY scandal’

President Trump on Wednesday again tweeted about the report of an FBI informant who interacted with at least two Trump campaign advisers.

“Look how things have turned around on the Criminal Deep State. They go after Phony Collusion with Russia, a made up Scam, and end up getting caught in a major SPY scandal the likes of which this country may never have seen before! What goes around, comes around!” Trump tweeted.

In another tweet, he wrote, “SPYGATE could be one of the biggest political scandals in history!”

These tweets follow his remarks on Tuesday, when he told reporters, “A lot of people are saying they had spies in my campaign.”

“If they had spies in my campaign, that would be a disgrace to this country,” Trump also said. “That would be one of the biggest insults that anyone has ever seen, and it would be very illegal, aside from everything else. It would make, probably, every political event ever look like small potatoes.”

A New York Times piece on Friday rebutted Trump’s claim of politically motivated spying, stating, “F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign.”
