Trump: Informant In Campaign Would Be "All Time Biggest Political Scandal"

President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized the media but has latched on to reports suggesting a government informant was implanted within his presidential campaign.

In a post on Twitter on Friday, Trump argued that it would be the "all time biggest political scandal" if the reports about the informant are true.

"Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president," Trump tweeted.

"It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a 'hot' Fake News story," he added. "If true - all time biggest political scandal!"

The tweet from the president comes two days after a report from the New York Times citing current and former officials said at least one government informant met several times with Trump campaign aides Carter Page and George Papadopoulos.

In an earlier tweet, Trump quoted Fox Business Network anchor David Asman, who claimed the Justice Department put a spy in the president's campaign in order to frame him for crimes he did not commit.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is currently serving as one of Trump's lawyers in the investigation of Russian meddling it the 2016 election, also mentioned the reports in an interview on CNN's "New Day" on Friday.

"Here's the issue that I really feel strongly about with this informant, if there is one. First of all, I don't know for sure, nor does the President, if there really was. We're told that," Giuliani said.

Giuliani added that Trump's lawyers "were told there were two embedded people in the campaign" and that the Times report "corroborates what people told us off the record."
