Geraldo Rivera seems to agree with General William Barr that the government was spying on Trump during his 2016 campaign.
“The extent of the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign and the Trump presidency is extraordinary,” Rivera said.
It went to the extent that an FBI agent went undercover as a research assistant and traveled to London to meet with George Papadopoulos, Trump’s former foreign policy adviser, to try to gain information about Trump’s potential ties to Russia in 2016.
Michael E. Horowitz, the Justice Department’s inspector general, has been investigating the FBI and their use of informants including research assistant Azra Turk and Stefan A. Halper, a Cambridge professor.
“How deeply did they penetrate? How aggressively were they spying? How many different agents, how many different informants?” Rivera wondered. “Were they trying to entrap the president of the United States to commit obstruction, to attempt obstruction?” Rivera questioned.
“They owe the president an apology,” Rivera said.
