    F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia

    In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests

    ...

    The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, took over the inquiry into Mr. Trump when he was appointed, days after F.B.I. officials opened it. That inquiry is part of Mr. Mueller’s broader examination of how Russian operatives interfered in the 2016 election and whether any Trump associates conspired with them.

    Reasonable concern given Trump’s blatant attempts to obstruct.

    They have yet to find anything in every attempt possible. Not saying he's not guilty, just saying they seem to look for any reason to investigate him and always end up with their foot in their mouth.

    He may well not be guilty, but he certainly acts guilty. With all that smoke, the FBI would be remiss in their duties not to see if there was some fire.

    I was not aware that any reports had been made public. Do you have inside information?

    I agree with @Speedwell well - he may not be guilty. But it is disingenuous to say “They have yet to find anything in every attempt possible” when the report hasn’t come out.

    And, you are right, there are no direct evidence against Trump himself has come out yet, but there are numerous indictments, guilty pleas, and guilty verdicts by/against people close to him and his campaign as well as Russian nationals.

    On collusion, possibly not. I wonder whether Donald will be found out in regard to his financial dealings, and obstruction.

    His campaign manager was handing internal polling data over to Ukranian business partners; his lawyer was exploring business opportunities in Moscow on his behalf; and his son and son-in-law were looking for opposition research from Russian operatives. We don’t have “fire” yet but there’s a heck of a lot of smoke.

    This investigation was early during the love fest between Trump and Putin.

    Who would have thunk it? A man suspected by the FBI of being a Russian agent is in the oval office, and conservatives look the other way as though none of this matters.

    It seems like some would put 2 and 2 together and eventually realize it might just be a mass issue of Spoiledsportism.

    I can’t imagine why anyone would think Putin would sit on this information if it was true. A chance to bring America low... there is no deal that would prevent that.

    Having DT in office brings us way lower than any single scandal.

    Really? I can imagine several plausible reasons Putin would keep quiet about having a US president under his thumb.

    There is no evidence that the public has seen. I doubt seriously they would do an actual investigation on a hunch. The reporting I've seen is that they would have had to have evidence and that the FBI wouldn't have been able to do it on their own without the DOJ signing off on it as well.

    People with poor math skills might do that.

    Trump still has use. Right now they are trying to get sanctions removed. Every lie they have told, from Flynn to the Trump Tower meeting on has revolved around getting rid of sanctions. He will blow up Trumps situation sooner or later, right now he is trying to get benefits still.

    So whether there is any fire or not, the smoke is fake?

    No, that's your conclusion.

    I'll tell you what, in my opinion Trump's pusillanimous public performance in Helsinki was sufficient grounds for impeachment all by itself. There, the fire was all out in the open for all to see.
