Holy shiznit. Buckle up. We have a pretty explosive claim coming our way.
Last night, Rudy Giuliani hinted to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham that the Obama-era FBI may have implanted a mole within the Trump organization.
“What they did with [Paul] Manafort, what they did with Michael Cohen, all the illegitimate things they’ve done—possibly placing a spy in the Trump campaign,” Giuliani said.
“All these things are areas where indictments have been dismissed because of government misconduct,” he added.
Here’s the full interview:
For the record, Giuliani didn’t pull this out of thin air. The suspicion comes from the testimony of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson. Last year, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee that the FBI had a source within the Trump campaign.
Glenn Simpson, the Fusion GPS founder who sponsored the unverified anti-Trump dossier, claimed in August and again Jan. 2 that the FBI has a source inside the Trump camp who lent credence to the document.
When a transcript of his secret August testimony was released on Tuesday, news headlines immediately latched onto the disclosure as a boon to a dossier whose core charges of Donald Trump-Russia collusion have been denied and not confirmed publicly.
After that story picked up steam, there was a bit of pushback. Some tried to suggest that Simpson “mischaracterized” the source.
Then suddenly, as quick as the headlines went up, some one close to Fusion was waving off reporters. Mr. Simpson had “mischaracterized” the source. It was not some one on the Trump inside, but apparently an Australian diplomat.
Mhm. Sure. Sources “close” to Fusion GPS are very credible. You know.
Committee chairman Chuck Grassley eventually asked for a clarification, and Simpson’s lawyer wrote back and said Simpson stood by what he said.
That brings us to Trump’s morning tweet.
Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI “SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT.” Andrew McCarthy says, “There’s probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign.” If so, this is bigger than Watergate!

I wouldn’t be surprised if this is true. We know a lot of people within the FBI were anti-Trump. James Comey? Lisa Page? Peter Strzok? Remember how they talked about an “insurance policy” in case Trump got elected?
The point is, this isn’t a stretch to believe. We’re dealing with wicked slimy people here.
