By The Blaze. Michael Caputo made a major accusation against the Obama administration after it was revealed that an FBI informant might have attempted to join the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. . .
Caputo, a former Trump campaign adviser, told Laura Ingraham Monday on her Fox News show that he believed he had been approached by a second informant during the campaign from a different Obama agency.
“Let me tell you something that I know for a fact,” Caputo said. “This informant, this person that they tried to plant into the campaign and even into the administration… he’s not the only person who came into the campaign.” . . .
“I know because they came at me,” Caputo explained. “And I’m looking for clearance from my attorney to reveal this to the public. This is just the beginning.”
“And I’ll tell you when we finally find out the truth about this, [former National Intelligence] Director [James] Clapper and the rest of them will be wearing some orange suits,” he asserted angrily.

Trump Meets With Rosenstein, Wray Amid Campaign Spying Claims
By Fox News. President Trump on Monday met with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray, a day after demanding a DOJ investigation into whether the FBI “infiltrated” his 2016 campaign.
“Based on the meeting with the president, the Department of Justice has asked the Inspector General to expand its current investigation to include any irregularities with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s or the Department of Justice’s tactics concerning the Trump Campaign,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
Sanders said it was also agreed to that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly will “immediately set up a meeting with the FBI, DOJ, and DNI together with congressional leaders to review highly classified and other information they have requested.”
The president made the investigation demand on Sunday, following reports detailing how an FBI “informant” had multiple contacts with members of Trump’s campaign. Trump said he would formally seek a DOJ probe of whether agents surveilled the campaign for political purposes, and whether any such demands came from the Obama administration.
Within hours, the DOJ had asked the department’s inspector general to handle such a review. (Read more from “Trump Meets With Rosenstein, Wray Amid Campaign Spying Claims” HERE)
