First of all, this was not a spy, it was an informant.
Second, we don't know that this was an informant placed there by the DOJ. It could just as well be a campaign whistle blower alerting the FBI of criminal actions by the campaign.
Third, if this was a spy placed there to undermine the campaign there would have been leaks before the election. Instead this investigation was kept secret until after the election.
Using informants to uncover crimes is not called spying, it's called police work.
And then there is this:
March 14, 2016 Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos met with a London-based professor that claimed to have «substantial connections with Russian government officials».
March 19, 2016 Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta received a phishing email which led to the hacking of his email account.
March 31, 2016 George Papadopoulos attended Trump's «national security meeting» where he said he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between Trump and Putin.
April 18, 2016 George Papadopoulos is introduced by email to a person in Moscow who was said to have connections to the Russian Foreign Ministry.
April 26, 2016 the professor tells Papadopoulos in a London meeting that the Russians have «dirt» on Clinton and «thousands of emails» connected to her.
June 3, 2016 Rob Goldstone emails Trump Jr. about setting up a meeting with a Russian government-connected lawyer to discuss incriminating information about Clinton.
June 7, 2016 Donald Trump says he will be «discussing all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons» on «probably Monday of next week».
June 9, 2016 Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and campaign chair Paul Manafort meet with the Russians in Trump Tower. The same afternoon, Donald Trump tweets for the first time about Hillary Clinton's emails.
June 14, 2016 the first public news breaks of two separate Russian breaches into the Democratic National Committee's computer network.
July 18, 2016 the Trump campaign worked behind the scenes before the Republican National Convention to change the GOP's platform on Ukraine.
July 22, 2016 WikiLeaks publishes the first batch of almost 20,000 DNC emails.
July 27, 2016 Donald Trump says: «Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing».
August 19, 2016 Paul Manafort resigns from the Trump campaign after reports of suspicious payments for work he did for Russians in Ukraine.
August 21, 2016 Roger Stone tweets: «Trust me, it will soon the Podesta's time in the barrel».
October 7, 2016 WikiLeaks begins to publish John Podesta’s emails.
Are you saying the DOJ placed a spy in the campaign that convinced all these campaign members to have all these secret meetings with Russians, and then lie about them afterwards?
