The president, in an interview with Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends", was addressing the upcoming Justice Department watchdog report on the FBI's adherence to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act requirements during the 2016 campaign.
The report will determine whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation misused a Foreign Surveillance Intelligence Act (FISA) surveillance warrant in October 2016 to survey Trump campaign associate Carter Page's communication and access to his text messages and emails. Sources told CNN the changes were significant enough to manipulate the document's meaning.
However DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz concluded that the adjustment did not have an impact on the validity of the surveillance application, USA officials familiar with the matter told the Post. Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is expected to release a report on December 9, and witnesses in the last two weeks have been invited in to see draft sections of that document.

Witnesses in the last two weeks have been invited in to see draft sections of that document.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report, which will be released on December 9, will broadly "refute accusations of a political conspiracy by senior law enforcement officials against the Trump campaign to favor Democrat Hillary Clinton, while also knocking the bureau for procedural shortcomings", according to WaPo.
"They were spying on my campaign and it went right up to the top and everybody knows it and now we're going to find out", Trump said. Barr has appointed US Attorney John Durham to investigate how the information was collected, and since then this investigation has become criminal in nature, said a person familiar with this issue. "This was an overthrow attempt at the presidency".
