A clearly unhinged and raging Donald "Rump" Trump, displaying increasing signs of "consciousness of guilt," issued a "demand" to the Justice Department this afternoon to "investigate" whether his corrupt campaign was "infiltrated" by the DOJ/FBI, i.e. investigate the investigation:
I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes - and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!— Donald J.

This is beyond Nixonian, who was devious enough to get others to do his dirty work. This is banana republic territory. What apparently set him off was the story in the New York Times that linked his con-man son, Donald Jr., to meetings with the Saudis and Emirates, who offered to "help" his campaign.
The counterintelligence investigation that began during the 2016 campaign is getting closer to Rump himself. He's reached a level of desperation to stop it at all costs, including this latest attempt at obstruction of justice.
UPDATE: DOJ has asked its Inspector General to add this matter to their ongoing investigation regarding FISA warrants aimed at Rump campaign associates.
