President Donald Trump touted a report Thursday alleging that his presidential campaign may have had a spy from the Federal Bureau of Investigation in its midst, claiming that if it's true it is "bigger than Watergate!"

Kilmeade discussed the explosive report with former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy, who wrote in the National Review about August 2017 testimony to the Senate by Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, which became public in January 2018.

McCarthy said "there is probably no doubt" that there was at least one confidential informant in the Trump campaign.

They were apparently part of the FBI's frenzied, secretive effort to determine whether the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russian government while taking pains not to influence the election results. In a recent column, McCarthy said that Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of an intelligence firm, Fusion GPS, that compiled research on Trump during the campaign, had testified to the Senate that the F.B.I. had a "human source" within the campaign.

In four seasons under Van Gundy, Detroit missed the playoffs three times, including this season when it finished 39-43. The former San Antonio Spurs assistant parted ways with Atlanta after a disappointing yet predictable 24-58 season.

"And what they did was use their counterintelligence powers covertly to investigate the Trump campaign during the stretch run of the campaign under circumstances where they did not have evidence that anyone had actually committed a crime", McCarthy insisted.

Trump himself took to Twitter Thursday to highlight McCarthy's Fox News interview and slam the "Witch Hunt" on its one-year anniversary under Mueller.

The president's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said Mueller has "all the facts" after a year and should "bring this thing to a close". "It's about time to say, 'Enough, we've tortured this president enough'".

"I think we're going to have to look into whether we can challenge the legitimacy of this entire investigation", Giuliani said.
