(Dailywire) A report released by The New York Times on Wednesday revealed that the FBI, under Director James Comey’s leadership, used a secret program that does not require the approval of a judge to gather phone records and “other documents” on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

The report also revealed that a government informant met several times with Trump campaign officials, which validates a March 8, 2018 report from The Washington Post. The New York Times reports:

The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters ā€” a secret type of subpoena ā€” officials said. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said. That has become a politically contentious point, with Mr. Trumpā€™s allies questioning whether the F.B.I. was spying on the Trump campaign or trying to entrap campaign officials.
