(Worthy News) – News reports have revealed the identity of a Cambridge University professor who fed information about the Trump campaign to the FBI but the national media have consistently declined to characterize the activity as spying, and are actively rejecting President Trump’s push to call it spying.

“A lot of people are saying they had spies in my campaign,” President Trump told reporters Tuesday at the White House. “If they had spies in my campaign that would be a disgrace to this country.” He added that it “would be one of the biggest insults anyone has ever seen” if it were confirmed that spies working under the Obama administration had infiltrated his campaign, which he described as “very illegal.”

The Washington Post’s report on those comments said Trump was making a reference to a “confidential source” who the FBI used to “aid its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.” But the story disputed Trump’s suggestion that the FBI may have secretly spied on his campaign, and said there’s “no evidence to suggest that the source was inserted into the Trump campaign…” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
