It looks like President Trump was quite angry today, and for good reasons.
He stated in one of the Tweets that he will demand that DOJ to look into wheather or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for political purposes.
I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!

It would be interesting to see how DOJ will investigate DOJ basically?
Considering that it’s about the campaign, chances are the AG Sessions will stay ‘recused’ from the investigation, leaving it to Deputy AG Rosenstein to clear it out. How is that going to happen taking into account the alleged implications of AG Rosenstein into the whole current mess or the continuous stone walling coming from DOJ?
I know that AG Sessions only recused himself from an investigation in to “Russian meddling”. If the FBI and Obama’s Justice Dept planted a spy in the Trump campaign that has nothing to do with Russia, Sessions should now put on his big boy pants and get involved to move this along before the November election.
However, if everything was put in motion based on the narative that there was a ‘possible collusion’ it would be about Russia, therefore Sessions will stay recused.
President Trump carried on with more angry Tweets
And here comes nothing via Washington Examiner:
Rod Rosenstein asks DOJ inspector general to review possible Trump campaign infiltration
By Steven Nelson, the Washington Examiner
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein asked the Justice Department’s inspector general Sunday to review whether there was improper politically motivated surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016.
Rosenstein made the request shortly after a tweet from President Trump saying that he would “officially” ask “that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes.”
In a statement, Rosenstein said: “If anyone did infiltrate or surveil participants in a presidential campaign for inappropriate purposes, we need to know about it and take appropriate action.”
