Former Trump campaign senior adviser A.J. Delgado tore into claims that the Obama administration may have surveilled the Trump campaign, calling it "embarrassing."

"Are we really going w this?? That Obama put a spy inside the Trump campaign, to frame Trump? Srsly? Not sure if it's IQ, ethics, or simple common sense but I cant," Delgado tweeted Monday night.

Delgado had worked on the Trump campaign and transition. Jason Miller, a former Trump campaign aide, revealed last year that he fathered a child with Delgado during the campaign.

President Trump reached an agreement with the Justice Department Monday to have the agency's inspector general probe his claims of FBI wrongdoing in the Russia probe.

That agreement came one day after Trump tweeted that he would demand the department probe whether his campaign was infiltrated or surveilled by the Obama administration for "political purposes."

Trump had met with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to discuss his demand for the probe on Monday.

The department referred the matter to Inspector General Michael Horowitz shortly after Trump's tweet on Sunday.

Trump has previously alleged without evidence that an FBI informant was embedded in his campaign and that the agency sought to spy on the campaign for political purposes.

He made the claims after reports that the informant had met with former Trump campaign advisers George Papadopoulos, Carter Page and Sam Clovis.
