Did the Obama Administration Spy on Michael Flynn?

In his controversial tweet on Sunday, President Trump indicated that he would direct the Justice Department to investigate “whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes—and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!” Is the president hinting that he thinks

Make America Not Small Again

On the eve of the release of the IG report, President Trump can be seen in relief against the backdrop of a year and a half of events.
