The New York Times has reported that after President Trump fired dirty cop James Comey, the FBI opened an investigation to determine if president Trump was a spy working for the Russians. It wasn’t a serious investigation in my mind. They were just throwing every bit of crap against the wall to see if anything would stick. It might be about time to do away with the FBI and to build a new law enforcement agency that has not joined hand in hand with the Democratic party. I am finally convinced, they are beyond saving.
The FBI opened an investigation into whether President Donald Trump was working on behalf of Russia just after the Republican fired James Comey as FBI director, according to The New York Times.
Special counsel Robert Mueller took over the inquiry upon his appointment May 17, 2017, just over a week after Trump fired Comey. It is unclear whether Mueller is continuing that part of the investigation, which has focused mainly on possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government, the Times reports.
It previously reported Mueller and the FBI are investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice over Comey’s firing, but the counterintelligence investigation into Trump had not been disclosed until the Times scoop.
The article did not indicate whether the FBI or Mueller developed evidence Trump was a Russian asset.
“When you actually look at the substance of what this administration has done, not the rhetoric but the substance, this administration has been much tougher on Russia than any in the post-Cold War era,” said Daniel Vajdich, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council.
Take military spending: Trump sought to add $1.4 billion for fiscal year 2018 to the European Deterrence Initiative — a military effort to deter Russian aggression that was initially known as the European Reassurance Initiative. That’s a 41 percent increase from the last year of the Obama administration. The president also agreed to send lethal weapons to Ukraine — a step that Obama resisted. And Trump gave U.S. forces in Syria more leeway to engage with Russian troops.
