As part of that inquiry, the Federal Bureau of Investigation sent an informant - an American academic with ties to the Republican Party - to speak with at least three Trump campaign advisers, in hopes of determining whether they had been in contact with Russian agents.
The assumption that the FBI/DOJ infiltration, if in fact it happened, was for political purposes sounds like yet another Trump paranoia created to distract attention from the Mueller investigation.

He then invoked the material compiled by former FBI Director James Comey before he was sacked.
Speaking to reporters later, Trump sought to discredit Comey, calling him a liar and saying he could be in trouble once a review of the FBI's handling of the Russian Federation probe is completed by the inspector general of the Justice Department.
