Judicial Watch founder and president Tom Fitton went on FOX Business Network Thursday afternoon to discuss the Deep State spying on the Trump campaign and Transition Team.
Tom Fitton told FBN that Barack Obama knew about the “informants” (spies) inside the Trump campaign. And their justification is we did it by the book. We did it by the rules. And nobody buys this.

Tom Fitton: All of these Democrats, all of these Obama officials are confirming, they were running an informant, running a spy inside the Trump campaign… The Justice Department has been undermining the oversight of Congress repeatedly over the past year. A Republican Justice Department attacks Devin Nunes and his oversight repeatedly and I guarantee you they didn’t give him enough information today. There are still documents they’re withholding.
FBN reporter David Asman: Could the FBI have implanted this person within a presidential campaign without some kind of approval or at least knowledge by a sitting president which was Obama?
Tom Fitton: The president was briefed on the dossier. You can bet he was briefed on this operation against the campaign, especially given its sensitive nature. And President Obama should disclose what he knew about that.
Earlier today former White House spokesman Ari Fleitcher said the same thing – that Obama knew about the spying on Trump.
