The intelligence community believes that Russia did seek to destabilize our democracy by assisting Trump in winning the election. A Republican controlled senate committee agrees with this finding.[1]Trump  shows signs of cracking under pressure. Now he has gone off the deep end and invented another conspiracy theory which is designed to divert attention from his own wrong doing. That's the same tactic he used to justify losing the popular vote.  He just asserted tat   he didn't lose it. Instead, those extra votes for Hillary came from illegal aliens who voted superstitiously to throw the election. Of course it was pointed out by election officials all over the country that there was no evidence of  any kind to back this assertion.[2]  So again the perpetrator accuses the system of doing the cheating to detract from his own guilt.

Asked by reporters what proof he had that his campaign was spied on, the president replied: "All you have to do is look at the basics and you'll see it. Looks like a very serious event, but we'll find out."Trump referenced classified documents the Justice Department is scheduled to show two GOP congressmen Thursday after Trump issued a "demand" Sunday that DOJ investigate what he then called possible efforts by the FBI to "surveil" and "infiltrate" his 2016 campaign.[3]
Anderson Cooper tells us that there is no evidence for a spy from FBI or any agency in the Trump campaign. But Trump's army of talking head propagandists have been at work lying speaking about this alleged "spy" as though a proven fact, when in fact they offer not evidence at all. When asked outright Trump just dances around the question.[4]In fact the old adage "if you repeat a lie often enough people believe it" is proven here. Even I had begun assuming there was an informant and that the allegation was proven.

The only documents referenced are not really know, but but it is theorized that Trump's tweet might
"reference New York Times and Washington Post reports that the FBI used an informant to make contact with members of his campaign, only after the agency obtained information that members of the Trump team had suspicious contacts with Russians during the 2016 election." [5] The impression of proof has been created y the massive repetition so many levels by Trump propagandists.

In recent days the president, in tandem with his allies in conservative media, has launched a full frontal attack on special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election meddling and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. Earlier this week, he called for an investigation of Mueller's investigation and alleged the FBI spied on his campaign, a story he described as “bigger than Watergate.” But the president has provided no evidence to support his allegations.[6]
This is a testimony to the power of lies and the power of propaganda. If there was an informant or a spy that attention from intelligence networks was no doubt   initiated by so many contacts between the Trump campaign and the Russians. This is only goes to prove there was something that needed investigating,something Trump or his people were up to. 
As Comey said:
"it's a dangerous time when our country is led by those who will lie about anything, backed by those who will believe anything, based on information from media sources that will say anything. Americans must break out of that bubble and seek truth.”[7]

"In fact, voting experts we talked to pointed to numerous studies that have found such in-person voter fraud — the type of fraud Trump is alleging — is virtually nonexistent."
