President Donald Trump borrowed the “never forget” slogan from 9/11 remembrance to attack the investigation of his campaign ties to Russia.
Just three days after deploying the phrase to slur Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and her Muslim faith, the president rolled it out to again claim U.S. law enforcement agencies and intelligence services “spied” on his campaign.
THEY SPIED ON MY CAMPAIGN (We will never forget)!

Attorney General William Barr echoed Trump’s insistence last week in congressional testimony that his campaign was spied upon, although he told lawmakers he had so far found no proof.
Trump and Barr have called for investigations into the origins of probes of his campaign ties to Russia, and the attorney general has promised to issue a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report into his findings on that topic.
