President Donald Trump continued to accuse the FBI of spying on his 2016 campaign to help former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Saturday in yet another temper tantrum directed at the Russia investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

On Thursday, Trump twisted a New York Times report to accuse former President Obama and the FBI of spying on his presidential campaign, calling the story “bigger than Watergate.”

Then he accused the Department of Justice of trying to “frame” him:

Trump later repeated his claim that Russian meddling is a “hoax” and called the investigation the “biggest political scandal.”

On Saturday, Trump went after the FBI and the DOJ with another hissy fit in which he demanded the release of Mueller probe documents to the House Intelligence Committee. You know, the same committee led by Trump henchman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) who prematurely ended the committee’s Russia investigation and declared Trump’s innocence despite the evidence and testimony.

Of course, the FBI kept the investigation into the Trump campaign’s connections with Russians quiet, unlike the Clinton email investigation, which more than likely swung the election to Trump in the final stretch  of 2016. Trump should be thanking the FBI, not attacking them.

Furthermore, the FBI informant made contact with Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Carter Page, and George Papadopoulos. Papadopoulos and Flynn have accepted plea deals from Mueller. Manafort has been indicted and is currently on trial. And Carter Page has been a subject of an FBI investigation for years due to his ties with Russia, which he continued to utilize during his time with the Trump campaign.

So, the FBI had every reason to use an informant, but Trump’s use of the word “spy” is ridiculous.

The Times reports that the informant never acted improperly and did not have political motivations as per FBI guidelines. And if they did have political motivations, they would not have kept the investigation quiet in the first place. That’s just logic.

Also, the informant was not “implanted” in Trump’s campaign. The informant merely approached Trump campaign officials.

This is just another desperate ploy by Trump to undermine and discredit the investigation that is continually closing in on him.
