Why did DOJ open an investigation into the Trump campaign?

Washington Times:
Nunes asks why Justice Department even opened investigation into Trump campaign
I think the answer is going to be that they did it because high ups in the Obama administration wanted to find an excuse to stop Trump and if that failed to remove him from office if he won.  It including top people at the DOJ, FBI, and people like Brennan and Clapper.   They had access to the Clinton opposition research document dressed up to look like an intelligence report and that used that as an excuse to spy on an opposing campaign.

Paul Sperry tells how Brennan manipulated the group that was pushing the Trump collusion narrative.
Former CIA Director John Brennan’s insistence that the salacious and unverified Steele dossier was not part of the official Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian interference in the 2016 election is being contradicted by two top former officials.

Recently retired National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers stated in a classified letter to Congress that the Clinton campaign-funded memos did factor into the ICA. And James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence under President Obama, conceded in a recent CNN interview that the assessment was based on “some of the substantive content of the dossier.” Without elaborating, he maintained that “we were able to corroborate” certain allegations.

These accounts are at odds with Brennan’s May 2017 testimony before the House Intelligence Committee that the Steele dossier was "not in any way used as the basis for the intelligence community's assessment" that Russia interfered in the election to help elect Donald Trump. Brennan has repeated this claim numerous times, including in February on “Meet the Press.”

In a March 5, 2018, letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, Adm. Rogers informed the committee that a two-page summary of the dossier — described as “the Christopher Steele information” — was “added” as an “appendix to the ICA draft,” and that consideration of that appendix was “part of the overall ICA review/approval process.”

His skepticism of the dossier may explain why the NSA parted company with other intelligence agencies and cast doubt on one of its crucial conclusions: that Vladimir Putin personally ordered a cyberattack on Hillary Clinton’s campaign to help Donald Trump win the White House.
...
There is much more.  Sperry also runs down some of the leaks about the process that were done to undermine Trump early on.  As the coup attempt unravels it is harder for the media to ignore how much they have been had by Brennan et.al.
