    Trump targeted by FBI as Russian agent or asset.

    Turns out the FBI launched a counterintelligence investigation during the campaign targeting Trump as a possible Russian agent, or asset, two months after the Trump Tower meeting with Russians.

    Yep, turns out they were concerned early on that Trump himself was either working for the Kremlin or was an unsuspecting asset. After Trumps obstruction of justice firing of Comey, B. Mueller took over the investigation.

    Trump’s behavior certainly gives credence to this investigation being warranted…from the fact that Trump did nothing to act on the early Intel reports of Russian meddling in the US election to his siding with Russia against FBI at the infamous Helsinki summit. And much else.

    Old news. We've known since before Trump won that certain elements in Washington DC were planning to burden his presidency with an unwarranted investigation despite the evidence being so thin against him that Hillary and the FBI had to literally falsify it (the infamously uncorroborated Steele dossier, bought and paid for by Hillary) in order to get a FISA warrant to begin their spy operation. It was their "insurance policy" and planned retaliation if he beat Hillary.

    And here we are, two years later, and there is no evidence of wrongdoing by our duly elected president despite one of the dirtiest cops in the country trying desperately to find something, anything to pin on President Trump.

    Dredging up this old and rotten story now is just the liberal media's attempt to make it seem "fresh" in order to keep it in the public consciousness.

    And if some of you are unaware of how sketchy this whole thing is, it was acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who recommended to the President that James Comey be fired because "the FBI is unlikely to regain public and congressional trust until it has a Director who understands the gravity of the mistakes and pledges never to repeat them. Having refused to admit his errors, the Director cannot be expected to implement the necessary corrective actions."

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39866767

    This is the same Rod Rosenstein who immediately turned around and in a clear case of conflict of interest appointed Comey's good friend Robert "Dirty Cop" Mueller to investigate the President for obstruction of justice because he followed Rosenstein's recommendation to fire Comey.

    In other words, the President was setup.

    This is the kind of political intrigue that people would laugh at as unrealistic if they came across it in a Tom Clancy novel.

    Oh, so you already knew that the FBI had suspected collusion with Russia during the campaign itself and that they had actually opened a counterintelligence investigation into the possibility of Trump himself being an agent of the Kremlin shortly after the Comey firing? You have no idea how difficult a decision that is to make, how much evidence is required for the Justice Department to give the okay. What it means is that they probably have a lot more evidence than any of us yet know of. As if any more is needed to impeach.

    An in-depth analysis on why this is happening now.

    The short version is that it seems someone leaked portions of Lisa Page's recent testimony which damaged the narrative, and so the FBI and DOJ are fighting back.

    Based on how heavily the Steele dossier has been depended upon, it seems to be a rather low bar.

    Even your political leaders know better than to believe that codswallop, Jim. Like I've said elsewhere, I don't have nearly enough faith to be you.

    That's because you are not as wise as I am OBP, not your fault I guess. The democrats would impeach Trump in a second right now, but they know that this current bunch of unethical republicans wouldn't do the right thing so they will wait for the Mueller report and the end of their own House investigation now that the treasonous republicans in the House are no longer in charge.
