Everyone in the U.S. should be "disturbed" by reports that the FBI put Donald Trump's presidential campaign under surveillance, said David Bossie, the Trump campaign's former deputy campaign manager.
"It is outrageous. Every American should be disturbed by this news. It is something that we have never heard of before, let alone thought of," Bossie said Wednesday on Fox News' "America's Newsroom."
Bossie was referring to a theory that Trump and his supporters are circulating that the FBI planted a "spy" in his campaign to bring him down.
"If there were paid informants, paid spies in this campaign, the Congress in an oversight capacity must, must get to the bottom of it," Bossie said.
Bossie said that Democrats are making the issue political. He said that because special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the election has turned up no evidence, Democrats have to look elsewhere.
"Not one scintilla of evidence has come forward to show any collusion, cooperation-- it is beyond argument now, that now they've gone and lurched into these other areas out of desperation," Bossie said in the Fox News interview.
Multiple outlets reported that a confidential source working for the FBI spoke with several Trump campaign aides, CNN reported.
However, U.S. officials have told CNN that a confidential intelligence source was not planted inside the Trump campaign to provide information.
