    Trump-Russia: FBI probed whether Trump was working for Moscow - NYT

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46849343

    The White House has condemned a New York Times report that the FBI opened an inquiry into whether President Trump was secretly working for Russia.

    Law enforcement officials became concerned by Mr Trump's behaviour in May 2017, when he sacked FBI director James Comey, the paper says.
    ================================================== ===
    The FBI is concetned that Trump is a threat to national security.

    A string of incidents led upo the FBI action:

    1. His calling for Russia's help in finding Clinton's lost emails during the campaign.

    2. His campaign aides like Papadopoulous, Manafort, Page & Flynn having close contacts with the Russians.

    3. After the election, his firing James Comey.

    4. His poor performance after the closed-door summit meeting with Putin in Helsinki.

    5. His continuing erratic behavior.

    6. The sudden & unexplained lifting of sanctions on Oleg Deripaska, a close ally to Putin..

    7. Kushner trying to set up secret back channel communications links with the Kremlin via the Russian embassy.

    8. His closing the Government as a distraction in front of the Mueller report.

    9. The not-so-secret Trump Tower meeting that he lied about.

    It's like Trump is & his people are working for the Russians & are a Russian intelligence asset while running the United States. This calls for either his resignation or the opening of an inquiry into his impeachment.

    Re: Trump-Russia: FBI probed whether Trump was working for Moscow - NYT

    From the original NYT article:

    "... No evidence has emerged publicly that Mr. Trump was secretly in contact with or took direction from Russian government officials. An F.B.I. spokeswoman and a spokesman for the special counsel’s office both declined to comment. ..."

    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.


    Take a chill pill.

    As far as leaks go, you must not have been watching TV over the past year or more.

    You people are truly radicals bent on destroying this country anyway you can, 24/7 Trump bashing with biased, partisan anti Trump articles. A true description of most of the radicals in this forum

    President Trump is or was secretly working for Moscow? You've got to be kidding. I thought yesterday's story was Moscow was secretly working for candidate Trump.

    Thats an incredibly weak 'string of events' some of which happened AFTER the FBI supposedly launched this probe.

    10. Despite having proclaimed publicly on several occasions that he had no business involvement in Russia, Trump was heavily involved with his Trump Tower Moscow project even during the campaign. The one stumbling block was the arranging of financing through the sanctioned Russian bank VTB. 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.

    If my personal perspective on these questions creates a personal problem for you, let the Mods work it out. All inputs should be welcome openly in a debate on such a major question. IMO.

    You derail threads by clogging up BN dropping them back a page or 2, why not participate in them.
