White House wants same briefing as lawmakers on Mueller probe; demands DOJ re-evaluate

Following recent bombshell allegations that the Obama administration had placed a spy in President Donald Trump’s campaign during the election two years ago, the Justice Department held a classified briefing with top congressional lawmakers.

During the briefing Thursday, the department shared classified documents regarding Obama’s spy and special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation.

President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani now argues that these same documents should be shared with the White House because they could potentially prove whether the special counselor’s investigation into Trump is even legal.

“If the spying was inappropriate, that means we may have an entirely illegitimate investigation. Coupled with Comey’s illegally leaked memos, this means the whole thing was a mistake and should never have happened,” he said Friday to the Associated Press.

“We’d urge the Justice Department to re-evaluate, to acknowledge they made a mistake. It’s a waste of $20 million of the taxpayers’ money. The whole thing is already a waste of money.”

The president himself wrote in tweets this past week that he believes the use of a spy to infiltrate his campaign “could be one of the biggest political scandals in history!”

It remains unclear though whether the use of a spy — or what Democrats and their left-wing media peers classify as a benign “informant” — was actually illegal. The answer depends on the reason why the Obama administration used a spy in the first place.

“What motivated putting him in? What sort of information were they seeking from him? What did they get?” Giuliani asked Friday. “They clearly did not get incriminating information or we’d have found out about it by now. And why did they hide it for so long? There’s a big concealment that went on here for over a year since the president said he had been surveilled.”

Word of the spy/informant first broke last week, when the mainstream media described an “informant” who contacted several of the president’s campaign advisers during the 2016 election to determine whether they were in contact with Russian operatives.

But what evidence prompted the Obama administration into believing Trump’s advisers were in touch with the Russians? Was there even any evidence, or was the use of a spy based entirely on the administration’s desire to stop Trump from winning the election?

These questions need to be answered ASAP.

As Trump rightly noted in a tweet Friday morning, “Can anyone even imagine having Spies placed in a competing campaign, by the people and party in absolute power, for the sole purpose of political advantage and gain?”

Only in a banana republic, which it seems is exactly the type of government that former President Barack Hussein Obama sought to create.
