MEDIA SPIN: NYT Says FBI Informant ‘Investigated,’ Not ‘SPIED’ on Trump Camp

The mainstream media’s all-out assault on the Trump campaign continued this week, with the New York Times claiming the FBI used an informant to “investigate,” not “spy” on the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election.

The New York Times published the article, titled “F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims,” over the weekend, saying the bureau was simply attempting to gain information on the campaign’s ties to Russia.

“The role of the informant is at the heart of the newest battle between top law enforcement officials and Mr. Trump’s congressional allies over the F.B.I.’s most politically charged investigations in decades. The lawmakers, who say they are concerned that federal investigators are abusing their authority, have demanded documents from the Justice Department about the informant,” writes the Times.

President Trump slammed the revelation that the FBI may have had an “inside man” in his campaign last week, saying -if true- the political scandal would be “bigger than Watergate.”
