President Donald Trump is calling for the Justice Department to investigate whether the Obama administration ordered surveillance of his presidential campaign. As is often the case with this president, the announcement came in a tweet.
I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes - and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 20, 2018
Meanwhile, we have just marked the one-year anniversary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia to influence the 2016 election.
