President Trump on Monday questioned why the Obama administration began investigating his campaign before the November 2016 election, saying that the only purpose was to discredit his campaign with no proof.
The president also claimed the investigation, which he says was opened in order to get Hillary Clinton elected, was a bigger scandal than Watergate.
Why did the Obama Administration start an investigation into the Trump Campaign (with zero proof of wrongdoing) long before the Election in November? Wanted to discredit so Crooked H would win. Unprecedented. Bigger than Watergate! Plus, Obama did NOTHING about Russian meddling.
