How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Trump Camp Wants to Expose FBI Informant; DOJ Worries that Could Put Lives in Danger, Screw Up Other Operations

President Trump

The Trump camp continues to wage war on the FBI and the Justice Department.

His allies allies are waging an increasingly aggressive campaign to undercut the Russia investigation by exposing the role of a top-secret FBI source, the Washington Post reports, adding that the effort reached new heights Thursday as Trump alleged that an informant had improperly spied on his 2016 campaign and predicted that the ensuing scandal would be “bigger than Watergate!”

The  Justice Department and intelligence agencies have warned that publicly identifying the confidential source would put lives in danger and imperil other operations.

The Post reports:

The stakes are so high that the FBI has been working over the past two weeks to mitigate the potential damage if the source’s identity is revealed, according to several people familiar with the matter. The bureau is taking steps to protect other live investigations that the person has worked on and is trying to lessen any danger to associates if the informant’s identity becomes known, said these people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence operations.
