(CNSNews.com) - Reports that the FBI sent a confidential source to speak with Trump campaign advisers has the president demanding an investigation into "whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes," as he tweeted on Sunday.
The Justice Department's inspector general now plans to look into that possibility, and that's a good thing, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Fox News's Sean Hannity Monday night:
Well, I think it's rapidly becoming the biggest and most sobering political scandal in American history. Somebody pointed out earlier, back when J. Edgar Hoover was spying at Lyndon Johnson's behest on Richard Nixon, we thought it was terrible. Back when they had a break in at Watergate, we thought it was terrible.
This is a multi-year effort that has two different fronts. People need to always remember that. One front was protecting, propping up, covering up for Bill and Hillary Clinton. The other front, as Trump became more and more serious, the other front was to stop Trump at any cost.
Now, I believe that the reason you see people like (former Deputy Attorney General) Sally Yates go berserk, you see (former CIA Director) John Brennan go berserk, you see (former Director of National Intelligence) General (James) Clapper go berserk -- they're all guilty. When you see somebody in the Obama team who gets that rattled and is that angry -- what you know is they're scared to death that they're going to get drawn into all this, and their role is going to come out and it will involve, I think, felonies and frankly, I suspect it reaches to President Obama.
It's inconceivable that President Obama could have had this many things going on and not known it, because his administration was very controlling and very tight, and I think we're going to discover all of the stuff, in the end, ends up with the Obama White House and has the president and his senior staff's fingerprints all over it.Gingrich said the main thing for Americans to understand is that "the corruption was so deep at the top." ............To Read More....
