The New York Times reported separately this week that at least one government informant met several times with Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, both former foreign policy advisers on Trump's Republican campaign.

"Just as I promised the American people from this podium 11 months ago, we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reform in American history", President Donald Trump said during his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Speaking Thursday on "Fox and Friends", the former NY mayor said Trump will only sit down with Mueller if "we feel there's a way to shorten this thing".

Throughout the conversation, Giuliani was asked about the recent reports which caused Trump to accuse the Obama-era Federal Bureau of Investigation of illegally spying on his campaign.

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

"What happened here is that they did not have a criminal predicate to open an investigation on Trump", McCarthy said.

US President Donald Trump marked the first anniversary of the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation on Thursday (Friday NZ Time) by repeating accusations that the FBI had a confidential informant inside his 2016 campaign and by calling the probe "disgusting, illegal and unwarranted". If so, this is bigger than Watergate!

Trump attributed these "spy" accusations to National Review's Andrew McCarthy and Fox Business personalities, but Axios notes that the idea has been spreading through the conservative media ecosystem.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told Fox News host Laura Ingraham Wednesday on "The Ingraham Angle" that it was high time for Mueller to bring the probe "to a close" because it's "not good for the American people" to prolong it further.

"I think the investigation should be thrown out", Giuliani said.

President Richard Nixon at the time ordered his attorney general and deputy attorney general to fire the special counsel investigating the 1972 break-in by five men at Democratic Party headquarters at the Watergate building in Washington.
