Once news broke that the FBI launched their own investigation into whether Trump is a Russian agent, the President was outraged.
And yet mainstream news outlets pushed the FBI’s claim that Trump may be on Russia’s payroll.
Then, Virginia’s two Democrat Senators took to the cameras to push the Trump-Russia narrative even further.
FBI Investigates Whether Trump is Acting on Russia’s Orders
President Donald Trump opened fire on the FBI this weekend after the New York Times reported that the agency launched an investigation into whether he was acting on behalf of Russia after firing former FBI Director James Comey.
The President dismissed these claims as disgusting.
He slammed the case as starting with “no reason” and “no proof.”1
Similar to the Russian collusion conspiracy theory, which alleges that Trump worked with the Russians to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton, Trump labeled this new investigation a “witch hunt.”
Breitbart states, “The report, published Friday, noted the FBI had been suspicious of Trump’s ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign and decided to pursue the probe into possible obstruction of justice after two instances in which Trump tied the Comey dismissal to the Russia investigation.”
The FBI investigation is just the latest in a series of allegations and investigations directed against President Trump, usually conducted by disaffected Democrats who remain bitter about his 2016 victory.
Virginia Democrats Continue with Trump-Russia Narrative
In a live interview, Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) described Trump’s behavior as “highly unusual for any American.”
Kaine supported this claim by mentioning Trump’s post-campaign communications with the Russian government.
“We have nearly 100 documented instances of ties between the Trump campaign transition and administration with Russia,” stated Kaine.2
Kaine was then asked whether the FBI overreacted by investigating Trump on these charges.
“I flip the question around,” Kaine answered, then he attempted to shift the topic towards protecting the Mueller investigation.
Virginia’s other Democratic Senator, Mark Warner, also skirted the issue.
“When asked about those reports and whether he believed Russia had outside influence on White House operations, Sen. Mark Warner, D-VA., hedged, opting to highlight the recent revelations that Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort shared polling data with a Ukranian consultant with potential ties to Russian intelligence,” the Washington Examiner reports.
Then on CNN, Warner explained “[i]t would be that kind of information that would inform the Russians later in the campaign when they launched their social media efforts,” describing Paul Manfort’s polling data.
It appears Virginia’s top Democrats still consider that President Trump may be working under Russian orders.
Trump Backed-Up His Call to Sack Comey
Trump has defended his firing of Comey, calling him a “crooked cop” and pointing out that his firing was a “great day for America.”
Comey since endorsed multiple Democrats in the 2018 elections and even donated thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates challenging close Trump allies in Congress.
Trump has also pointed out that his actions against Russia have been far tougher than Obama’s tenure in office.
The audacity of the FBI to investigate whether the sitting President of the United States was a Russian operative has conservatives outraged.
But the issue goes far deeper than originally thought.
No leaders in the executive branch authorized this investigation.
And yet the FBI is supposed to answer to the President of the United States.
This was all conducted entirely on their own initiative.
And the FBI has yet to reveal the details of this investigation.
It’s unknown who authorized it or who worked on it.
These facts matter to the American people and conservatives are demanding the President get to the bottom of this.
What do you think?
Should President Trump demand more information from the FBI about their investigation?
