President Trump on Saturday tweeted a call for the release of documents regarding the FBI or DOJ “infiltrating” his campaign after continued reports identified an intelligence source within the Trump campaign.
If the FBI or DOJ was infiltrating a campaign for the benefit of another campaign, that is a really big deal. Only the release or review of documents that the House Intelligence Committee (also, Senate Judiciary) is asking for can give the conclusive answers. Drain the Swamp!

Trump echoed the call of several Republican lawmakers to further scrutinize any role played by Stefan Halper, a University of Cambridge professor who was connected to both British and American intelligence agencies. He added that the possible infiltration of his campaign was “a really big deal.” (RELATED:Jim Jordan: If There Was A Spy In Trump Campaign, ‘That’s As Wrong As It Gets’)
