On Thursday, the President suggested that the "Obama FBI" had embedded an informant within his campaign in 2016. In a recent column, McCarthy said that Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of an intelligence firm, Fusion GPS, that compiled research on Trump during the campaign, had testified to the Senate that the F.B.I. had a "human source" within the campaign.
The US president made the claim, without any supporting evidence, in a tweet following and earlier post describing the special counsel investigation into potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, "the greatest witch hunt in American history".
"Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT, '" Trump tweeted.

A number of those charges were related to Russia's interference in the presidential election, but so far, none of them has extended to potential collusion between the Russian government and Trump associates.
