The Resistance is working hard to downplay the revelation that the FBI had an informant interact with members of the Trump campaign. It seemed shocking at first — Trump demanded an investigation into whether the FBI or Department of Justice had infiltrated or surveilled his campaign for political purposes, triggering meltdowns by former CIA director John Brennan and others.
Like The Federalist’s Sean Davis pointed out, though, those claiming it was OK to have a spy infiltrate the Trump campaign seemed to be the same people who denied the Obama administration had ever spied on the Trump campaign.
Count Rep. Ted Lieu among those who believe the use of informants is no big thing and that President Trump shouldn’t be so “freaked out” if he has nothing to hide.
Use of informants is a vital & legitimate technique for both counterintelligence & criminal investigations. Why is @realDonaldTrump so freaked out about an informant who interacted with his campaign?
