LIVE: SUPREME COURT MEMORIAL FOR RUTH BADER GINSBURG

WATCH: Trump Quotes Law Professor Jonathan Turley to Blast Sally Yates, Russia Probe

After posting a very Trump-centric tweet honoring Memorial Day, President Donald Trump was back on the subject of his current fixation: “SPYGATE!”

The president first quoted a Fox News segment on the (thus far unfounded) theory he has been pushing as of late, which holds that President Barack Obama‘s FBI spied on his campaign for political purposes.

Trump then quoted law professor Jonathan Turley, who appeared on Fox & Friends Monday morning and called for an investigation into the FBI’s probe into Trump’s campaign.

The FBI used an informant to speak to members of the Trump campaign in 2016 suspected of ties to Russian efforts to meddle in the election. Trump has sought to spin those revelations into a conspiracy theory — which he has branded “SPYGATE” — which holds the the FBI was targeting his campaign to help elect Hillary Clinton.

Turley said in his Fox & Friends appearance that the criticisms of Sally Yates — the former Deputy Attorney General who blasted Trump’s latest attacks on the FBI and Justice Department over the weekend — are rather ironic.
