Trump Says Report That Obama Spied on His Campaign 'Bigger than Watergate'

Trump himself claimed on Thursday that the Obama administration had intentionally planted the informant in his presidential campaign to spy on him and his associates, suggesting that the matter could end up being "bigger than Watergate".

The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters - a secret type of subpoena - officials said. Andrew McCarthy says, "There's probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign".

Mr Trump made the comment on the anniversary of Robert Mueller's appointment as special counsel to head the Justice Department investigation into possible coordination between Russian Federation and Trump campaign officials.

When is Ramadan 2018? Muslims Set To Begin Holy Month Of Fasting
The Islamic holy month of Ramadan or Ramzan will begin on Thursday in India after the moon was sighted in New Delhi and Lucknow. Fasting Ramadan is no difference when it comes to Muslims born on the American soil and others coming from foreign countries.

The Times report provided a detailed account of the initial stages of the FBI's investigation of Russia's interference in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign or anyone affiliated with it was privy to Russia's attempts.

The suggestion seems meant to undercut the work by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.

On CNN Friday morning, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani conceded that neither he nor Trump knows if there really was an "informant".

WHO Says Congo Faces 'Very High' Risk From Ebola Outbreak
Ebola is a highly infectious disease spread through contact with even small amounts of bodily fluid of an infected person. These vaccines had proved to be effective in halting the Ebola outbreak in the West Africa a few years ago.

Speaking Thursday on "Fox and Friends", the former NY mayor said Trump will only sit down with Mueller if "we feel there's a way to shorten this thing".

"I think the investigation should be thrown out", Giuliani said.

He added: "We're going to have to look into whether we can challenge the legitimacy of the entire investigation". "Maybe the special counsel never should have been appointed". Page's meetings with Russian government officials in 2016 have come under heavy scrutiny, and Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation officials about his contacts with Russians.

Conte 'committed' to Chelsea, but…
The Spaniard, who has a year left on his contract, has been critical of Newcastle's poor transfer dealings throughout the season. Manager Antonio Conte made eight changes with the final in mind and saw an unimpressive performance.

Giuliani, who is working for the president pro bono, said Wednesday that the probe "is not good for the American people, and the special counsel's office doesn't seem to have that sort of understanding that they're interfering with things that are much bigger than them".
