President Donald Trump questioned whether the Obama administration's department of justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation spied on his presidential campaign with a confidential informant Thursday morning.

Trump's tweet refers to an article penned by McCarthy and published by National Review on Saturday. Oh course, the since the investigation has prompted lingering questions about national security and the nature of Donald Trump's relationship with Russian Federation, the president is marking the anniversary the way he knows best: attacking it on Twitter.

The president also appeared to reference an interview with National Review's Andrew McCarthy, who claims Obama opened the FBI investigation that targeted Trump's campaign.

"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.

This is not the first time Trump has suggested the Obama administration spied on his campaign during the election.

Mueller's latest public moves have involved charging Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort of money laundering and tax fraud from before his time working with Trump's campaign.
