President Donald Trump says it would be a "disgrace" to the country if it's shown that the FBI had "spies in my campaign."
Trump on Tuesday voiced a sentiment he's expressed on Twitter for the past few days after lending credence to conservative theories that the government spied on his campaign.
Trump demanded over the weekend that the Justice Department investigate whether the FBI infiltrated his presidential campaign. The Justice Department later said it would expand an open investigation into the ongoing Russia probe by examining whether there was any politically motivated surveillance.
The White House also announced that the FBI and Justice Department have agreed to meet with congressional leaders to review highly classified information lawmakers have been seeking on the handling of the probe.
