Transcript for Trump claims 'Obama FBI spied on the Trump campaign'
He tweeted accusations and this is one of my favorite things, that Obama's FBI spied on his campaign with an embedded informant, and says if it's true, it's bigger than watergate. What I'm missing in this, because usually, I thought Hillary and Obama worked together generly when they are doing stuff like this, so where is Hillary? I guess she was not there that day that he had an informant. Also what's confusing is the allegation that the FBI was spying on trump tower or phone calls. He is saying there is somebody in the campaign. This is what I mean though. This is what I'm talking about, like, I am trying to figure out what is going on. I don't know what this means anymore. The reason to follow is because they are lying all the time. It's a lie upon a lie upon a lie. That's why you can't follow it. What I would like to point out is confidential informants are used by law enforcement, and it's completely legal. If it was used. We don't know. Here's the bottom line. Mueller's not going anywhere, Rudy. Mueller is not going anywhere. He is not looking -- he is not answering you. He is not playing with y'all, and he is doing his job. I'm happy to have him do it. You want to keep throwing stuff up. We'll catch some stuff and let it rain down, but no one is taking their eye off this. Including trump voters, who say they don't want him to fire Mueller because it will make trump look guilty. If they don't fire him he'll look guilty also because he is guilty. They don't care. Trust me. They don't care. There are more folks that are starting to care. I think so. We'll see what happens.
