'Obama's Federal Bureau of Investigation spied on Trump campaign with informant', says president

President Donald Trump on Thursday once again accused former President Barack Obama of performing clandestine spy operations during the 2016 presidential campaign. It followed reports by Andrew McCarthy in the National Review.

US President Donald Trump said in a statement on Thursday that it would be "worse than Watergate" if reports that former President Barack Obama's Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) spied on his 2016 election campaign turn out to be true.

The tweet, which recalls Trump's unsubstantiated claim that Obama "wire tapped" Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election, followed a freakish post congratulating America on being in the "second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History".

Ocado to enter United States market with 'transformative' Kroger deal
Currently, the two companies are looking for suitable locations to establish three automated warehouse facilities. Kroger has signed an exclusive deal with UK online supermarket Ocado to use its technology in the United States.

"I've written a couple of columns in the last week or so pointing out there's probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign", McCarthy said.

"Congratulations America, we are now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History...and there is still No Collusion and No Obstruction", Trump wrote. Multiple Trump campaign officials have been charged over their connections with Russia, and over a dozen Russian nationals have been indicted over their role in Russia's interference in the American election.

The special counsel investigation has issued indictments on nine people and three businesses, securing five guilty pleas so far, while a pair of cases is going to criminal trial. Manafort has pled not guilty.
