President Trump took to Twitter early on Sunday morning to declare that it is “looking more and more” like his 2016 campaign for the presidency was “illegally being spied on.”
Trump claimed the new release of top-secret documents about surveillance of a former Trump campaign aide confirms that the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation misled the courts in the run-up to the Russian collusion probe.
In another Sunday tweet, Trump quoted a Andrew McCarthy, a News commentator:
Trump was referring to yesterday’s release of 412 pages of documents about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court, which led to the feds targeting Carter Page, who had been a Trump campaign adviser:
“These documents are heavily redacted but seem to confirm the FBI and DOJ misled the courts in withholding the material information that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC were behind the ‘intelligence’ used to persuade the courts to approve the FISA warrants that targeted the Trump team. Given this corruption, President Trump should intervene and declassify the heavily redacted material,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
Trump also wrote on Twitter on Sunday:

On Friday, reports emerged that Trump’s one-time lawyer, Michael Cohen, recorded a conversation with Trump about a former Playboy model who claims Trump once had an affair with her.
On Saturday, Trump ripped the probe and his former lawyer.
Trump also blasted what he called “The Rigged Witch Hunt.”
