Trump points to report that FBI may have spied on his campaign

WASHINGTON— President Donald Trump touted a report Thursday alleging that his presidential campaign may have had a spy from the FBI in its midst, claiming that if it’s true it is “bigger than Watergate!”

The tweet was likely in reference to a National Review report suggesting that Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson’s since-retracted claim before the Senate Intelligence Committee last year that there was a “human source” connected with the FBI on the campaign.

The House Intelligence Committee and the FBI have recently locked horns over attempts from the committee’s Republicans for the bureau to disclose an unnamed source.

Trump did not provide any evidence beyond the National Review story, which questions the FBI’s official account of the investigation’s origins and the timing of Simpson’s retraction.

Fusion GPS did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
