On Saturday, Trump took to Twitter to insist that he has been “victimized” by the Obama administration. His claim came after watching Fox and Friends on Saturday morning.

Trump tweeted, “My view is that not only has Trump been vindicated in the last several weeks about the mishandling of the Dossier and the lies about the Clinton/DNC Dossier, it shows that he’s been victimized. He’s been victimized by the Obama Administration who were using all sorts of…….”

He continued, “….agencies, not just the FBI & DOJ, now the State Department to dig up dirt on him in the days leading up to the Election. Comey had conversations with Donald Trump, which I don’t believe were accurate…he leaked information (corrupt).” Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch on @FoxNews.”

Last week, Congressional Republicans tried to use a memo to claim the Obama administration abused their surveillance authority to spy on former Trump adviser Carter Page. The effort was led by Rep. Devin Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee.

However, it turned out their memo was a dud. There was a sentence in the memo that discredited the whole argument they were trying to make. The memo was supposed to show that the whole Russia investigation should be thrown out because the evidence was politically motivated.

However, it failed to do so because of this sentence. The sentence read, “The Papadopoulos information triggered the opening of an FBI counterintelligence investigation in late July 2016 by FBI agent Pete Strzok.”

Currently, Trump refuses to release the Democratic memo that is a rebuttal to the Republican memo. It has been sent back to the House Intelligence Committee for revisions.
