    Having had a **** storm of leaks from the FBI via the NYT and CNN in the last 2 years, it would stand to reason that had the FBI found something, it would have been leaked by now.

Trump stood to make hundreds of millions of $$$ through this deal if it went trough but the lifting of sanctions now became a priority for Trump.

    11. The day after firing Comey he had invited the Russians Labrov (Foreign Minister) & Kisliak (Ambassador/spymaster) to meet in the Oval Office. He told them that the firing of Comey had lifted the burden of the ongoing Russia investigation off of him. The U.S. & foreign press were excluded from this meeting, which was very cordial. The Russian photographer was a Russian secret agent who had with him a bag of unknown electronic gadgets.

    12. In an interview with Lester Holt a few days later, he was quite open in saying that he had fired Comey over the investigation into Russian collusion.

    We should all feel threatened to have an apparent Russian intelligence asset running this country like the autocrat he is. Putin must be laughing his donkey off.
    Putin is laughing and plotting......trump is a useful idiot, an asset to be protected until the inevitable fall

    There are many other nations where somebody in Trumps situation would have been frog marched out of the office last night to protect the nation, its security and its people.

    Here you cannot even get an elected Republican to say much about it.

    Yes they will.

    President Reagan told Gorbachev to "tear down this wall".
    President Trump tells Putin to "bend me over this wall".

    During that Oval Office meeting he gave classified intelligence documents to our adversary. Trump is both a spy & a traitor.

    Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador

    Putin is Trump's paymaster. He is working for the Russians. Our President is on the Kremlin payroll.

    Trump Revealed Highly Classified Intelligence to Russia, in Break With Ally, Officials Say

    WASHINGTON — President Trump boasted about highly classified intelligence in a meeting with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador last week, providing details that could expose the source of the information and the manner in which it was collected, a current and a former American government official said Monday.

    The intelligence disclosed by Mr. Trump in a meeting with Sergey V. Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, and Sergey I. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, was about an Islamic State plot, according to the officials. A Middle Eastern ally that closely guards its own secrets provided the information, which was considered so sensitive that American officials did not share it widely within the United States government or pass it on to other allies.

    A spy & a traitor.
