President Trump is calling out the federal investigations into his 2016 campaign after recent testimony by an FBI lawyer confirmed the agency went outside the box when conducting the Russia probe.
In a tweet Tuesday, the president said a top FBI lawyer confirmed “unusual steps” were taken in the investigation. He said they relied on the Clinton campaign’s fake and unverified dossier, which is illegal.
President Trump then cited Judge Andrew Napolitano stating, “that has corrupted and enabled them to gather evidence by unconstitutional means.”

The concerns come after the testimony of former FBI lawyer James Baker was released, regarding the steps taken during the Russia investigation.
