President Trump unloaded on his predecessor Monday; questioning Barack Obama’s possible involvement in new allegations the FBI had an “inside man” interacting with the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election.
Trump was responding to recent reports that Obama’s DOJ had a potential “informant” dealing with his campaign in the months leading up to his race for the White House; saying -if true- the scandal would be bigger than Watergate.
“The Wall Street Journal asks, ‘WHERE IN THE WORLD WAS BARACK OBAMA?’ A very good question!” tweeted the President, citing a recent column that called on Obama to explain “his administration’s surveillance of affiliates of a presidential campaign.”

The President announced over the weekend his plans to have his Department of Justice investigate the claims; saying they need to “look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated” the Trump campaign.
