Report: FBI probed whether Trump secretly worked for Russia

WASHINGTON (AP) — The New York Times reports that law enforcement officials became so concerned by President Donald Trump’s behavior in the days after he fired FBI Director James Comey that they began investigating whether he had been working for Russia against U.S. interests.

The report, published late Friday, cites unnamed former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation.

Special counsel Robert Mueller took over the investigation when he was appointed soon after Comey’s firing. The Times says it’s unclear whether Mueller is still pursuing it.

Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani told the Times that he had no knowledge of the inquiry but said that since it was opened a year and a half ago and they hadn’t heard anything, apparently “they found nothing.”

    Way to go, AP and FOX17. What’s the point of this? A bunch of anonymous people may have done something shady as shown in a possibly ongoing report. But, the possibly bad guy’s Trump so they thought you should know.

    As I have said before, the Russian government amounts to 1/16 of the U.S. economy—they observe with concern if we so much as sneeze.

    The entire “Russian collusion” argument was a scam from the start, and was used as a smokescreen to hide the deep state conspiracy that was orchestrated to undermine the rule of law in this country. Nostradamus referred to Obama as the “young black felon” in a quatrain dealing with the fall of Libya, and the text is available to anyone who wants to find the path. The destruction that the left has dealt to our nation is incredible, and we still have to deal with the ripple effect of the depths of dumbness. Get ready for a ten-month long wild ride, folks.
