President Donald Trump railed against FBI efforts to gather information on associates of his 2016 campaign in a series of tweets Wednesday.

Trump is reacting to recent revelations that an FBI informant made contact with several members of his campaign and efforts by conservative lawmakers to review documents relating to the probe. These efforts will come to fruition Thursday when Congressman Devin Nunes and Congressman Trey Gowdy will be allowed by the Department of Justice to review the documents after months of oversight efforts.

Several lawmakers have called for a second special counsel to be appointed to investigate the FBI’s efforts during the 2016 election along with alleged FISA abuse on Carter Page.
