Trump has repeatedly called the investigation a "witch hunt".

"Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI 'SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN IMBEDDED INFORMANT, '" the president tweeted in reference to a National Review report published last week.

"Andrew McCarthy says, 'There's probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign.' If so, this is bigger than Watergate!"

This is, however, not the first time that the Obama administration has been charged with spying on the Trump campaign.

After combing through the anti-Trump and pro-Hillary Clinton text messages exchanged by FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, McCarthy noted that the texts show "that they obviously opened an investigation late July, early August of 2016".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said if the reports are proved to be true, "it should certainly be looked into".

President Donald Trump's lawyers could try to "challenge the legitimacy" of the special counsel's Russian Federation probe after learning a government informant spoke to two key campaign aides in 2016, according to Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani. "We've tortured this president enough", Giuliani said during an appearance on Fox News Wednesday.

He added Mr Trump remains eager to offer his "side of the case".

Trump's lawyers have been in negotiations with Mueller's team for months about whether the president would sit for an interview. "If there's a spy, they got nothing from it".

Nunes ultimately subpoenaed the Justice Department for documents about that individual.

"I think the investigation should be thrown out", Giuliani said. "It's been a year". "It's about time to say, 'Enough, we've tortured this president enough'". Mainstream outlets have also been commemorating the one-year anniversary of Mueller's appointment as special counsel on May 17, 2017. Page's meetings with Russian government officials in 2016 have come under heavy scrutiny, and Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation officials about his contacts with Russians.
