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, also a former Trump campaign aide, revealed last year that he fathered a child with Delgado during the campaign.

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.”
