U.S. President Donald Trump said Sunday that documents released by the FBI relating to a former adviser's ties to Russia showed that his campaign for the 2016 presidential election had been illegally spied upon by U.S. law enforcement, but offered no evidence to support his assertion. In a series of Twitter posts, Trump also accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice of misleading the courts during a probe of Russian interference in the election, but did not elaborate. The FBI documents released Saturday showed how in 2016 the bureau requested surveillance of the former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page as part of that investigation, saying the bureau believed he had been collaborating with the Russian government. Some Republican lawmakers have contended that the FBI made serious missteps when it sought a warrant to monitor Page in October 2016, shortly after he had left the Trump campaign.
