FBI caught in major spy scandal - Trump; BUREAU 'USED SECRET INFORMANT'.

US PRESIDENT Donald Trump has escalated his efforts to discredit the Russia investigation, saying the FBI has been caught in a "major spy scandal".

Mr Trump, right, says the FBI used a secret informant to determine whether some of his campaign aides were working with Russia ahead of the 2016 election.

"SPYGATE could be one of the biggest political scandals in history!" Mr Trump said in an early morning Twitter tirade yesterday.

The president and his Republican supporters in Congress are now demanding information on the outside informant, claiming it is proof that the Obama administration was trying to spy on his campaign for political reasons.

The White House has negotiated rare access to classified documents for Mr Trump's congressional allies in a briefing expected today.

"Look how things have turned around on the Criminal Deep State," Mr Trump tweeted.

"They go after Phony Collusion with Russia, a made up Scam, and end up getting caught in a major SPY scandal the likes of which this country may never have seen before! What goes around, comes around!"
