Obama used the Justice Department to spy on Trump. - sm

The only reason' for spying was to 'inform the president'

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy pointed out that counterintelligence operations by the FBI, Justice Department and are carried out for the president.

So it would have been the responsibility of the Obama administration's counterintelligence investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign to make sure Barack Obama knew what was going on, he said in a Fox News interview with Sean Hannity on Tuesday night.

"What I'm saying is not that the president sits there and directs that there be counterintelligence investigations, McCarthy explained, according to BizPacReview. "What I'm saying is that unlike criminal investigations, counterintelligence investigations are done for the president."

He said the "only reason to do them is to inform the president with the information he needs to protect the United States from foreign threats."

"And here we know at various junctures we have actual factual information that this investigation was well-known to President Obama," McCarthy said.

"If things were working properly, the president should have been alerted about it and informed about it – it was a very important investigation," McCarthy said. "If they actually believed what they were telling the court, that it was a possibility that Donald Trump was actually a plant of the Kremlin, it would have been derelict on their part not to keep the president informed."
