President Trump met today with both Deputy AG Rosenstein and FBI Director Wray in a meeting that was scheduled before he yesterday called on the DOJ to investigate any 2016 spying of his campaign.

As a result of Rosenstein’s request yesterday, the IG is already investigating any spying that was done on the 2016 Trump campaign. Expanding it to ‘any irregularities’ really doesn’t mean that much to me, but perhaps it is significant.
