F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia


When one looks back on American history, I imagine one generally has a negative perspective on Richard Nixon, and I imagine in his time, he generally had a following of positive supporters.

I can only hope, that in the future looking back, Trump supporters will carry the same general negative feeling about the guy they’re idolizing to degrees greater than sainthood and, dare I say, Jesus himself.

NYTs reports (those fake-y Mcfake fakes!):

WASHINGTON — In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests, according to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation.

The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.

The investigation the F.B.I. opened into Mr. Trump also had a criminal aspect, which has long been publicly known: whether his firing of Mr. Comey constituted obstruction of justice.
