Former FBI director James Comey issued a tweet on Thursday referring to Republicans attacking “confidential human sources,” effectively admitting that the FBI was spying on the Trump campaign.
Comey’s strange tweet reflects an admission of guilt following revelations that there was at least one spy and maybe two for the FBI in the Trump campaign and that outside Trump campaign-affiliated people named Carter Page and George Papadopoulos were being monitored in real time by the FBI. Both those men visited longtime CIA asset Stefan Halper at the University of Cambridge when the spying began.
Facts matter. The FBI’s use of Confidential Human Sources (the actual term) is tightly regulated and essential to protecting the country. Attacks on the FBI and lying about its work will do lasting damage to our country. How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?

Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone pointed to Stefan Halper as the Trump campaign spy in his interview on Howley Reports:
