There Was An FBI Informant Asking Questions Of President’s Campaign Team In 2016

For several days, Donald Trump has been claiming his campaign was spied on, infiltrated, by the FBI. To what end? Who knows. It is a paranoid delusion from the mind of a madman, if you ask me. As always, our friend Gronda is on top of the story with a nice summary of what is true and what isn’t, and what Trump’s likely goal is — to shut down the Mueller investigation. A man who is innocent does not act guilty, as Trump is doing. Please take a minute to read Gronda’s summary, for it clarifies the issue nicely. Thank you, Gronda!

The FBI has been resisting providing the name of one of its confidential informants to GOP members in the White House and the US Congress because this would risk the informant’s life. But the GOP who are doing the president’s bidding could care less.

President Trump and his supporters including the US House Intel chair, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) are convinced that finding this man could derail the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe being led by the Special Counsel Robert Mueller III.

As per a May 17, 2018 Washington Post report, “President Trump’s allies are waging an increasingly aggressive campaign to undercut the Russia investigation by exposing the role of a top-secret FBI source. The effort reached new heights Thursday as Trump alleged that an informant had improperly spied on his 2016 campaign and predicted that the ensuing scandal would be “bigger than Watergate!”

The fact is that there was an informant…

  1. Trump apparently believes he can snap his fingers and create his own administrative judgments without providing evidence whereas Mueller painstakingly collects facts according to the legal requirements of our Constitutional law.
    I find our pseudo President’s attack on our country’s longstanding, “separation of powers” institutions traitorous to say the least.

  2. Gronda is tireless. How she does it I do not know.
    On the subject matter.
    When you step back outside of the details, the handling of the issue is all very tawdry. The Office of the President of the United States of America should be one of at least public dignity and at the risk of sounding a bit cynical one of slick professionalism at keeping this low profile.

    • I know, my friend … I feel exactly the same. It is so exhausting and depressing. I’ve tried to find the statistics but they aren’t available for 2017 yet, but I’m betting the suicide rate in this country has risen.

    • The thing about his ‘deplorables’, though, is they don’t even care if he’s innocent … in fact they know darn well that he isn’t innocent of anything … sexual harassment, lying, collusion, stealing in his business, racism … and they don’t care! I’m still so puzzled by that! Sigh.

      • To them, it’s all about winning–at any cost. As long as they WIN and crush their enemies under their heels, it’s alright, no matter what else happens in the process. They remind me very much of an Al-Qaeda-like cult. They’d rather the world burn than they be wrong or not not win. Trump could be video taped shooting a baby and he would not lose his supporters. To support this man is a statement on who you are and what you value. And I find what his followers value sickening (also, they’re the biggest bloody snowflakes I’ve ever met, but that’s a tale for another day). I pray in November we can at least win the House. But so many support this man, I’m not sure “the more normal guys” will ever win anything ever again.

        • You are right, though I still don’t understand the mentality. I’m with you … the House is all-important in November, for that is where the impeachment process has to begin. But, as we’ve discussed before, I am less confident than I would like to be … less confident than I was a few short months ago. The democrats aren’t stepping up to the plate as much as I think they need to and time is running shorter by the day. As you said, I don’t know that ‘normal’ will ever be again, and not just in this country, but also in the EU countries.

  3. I’d read Gronda Morin’s . I’m thinking maybe it just implies that even the authorities ( FBI) are suspicious of the Trump campaign committing treason against the US. That’s the other side of the argument, which is even more damning, in my opinion.

    • I only wish somebody had discovered the evidence of Trump & Co colluding with the Russians and brought it to light BEFORE the election, and he might have been disqualified, or at least not elected. Sigh.

      • I’m wondering why the Mueller investigation is taking a long time. I guess circumstancial evidence is not enough. If it walks like a duck, looks like a duck, quacks like a duck…. in our justice system, it doesn’t mean it’s a duck. I just hope we can get positive results before the mid-term elections.

        • Well, a couple of things. First, when it first started a year ago, I predicted that it would take until the end of this year, 2018. All the ‘i’s have to be dotted and the ‘t’s crossed; there are hundreds of thousands of pages of documents to read and discuss. But on top of that, every door they open leads to a whole new can of worms, and the scope of the investigation has increased exponentially in the past year. Logically, I would now predict it wouldn’t be complete until around the middle of next year. BUT … Mueller is smart and he’s well aware that Trump is gunning for him, trying to shut down the investigation, so I would bet money that he is trying to hustle to have at least enough to report on at a moment’s notice if needs be. I don’t envy him, but I trust him implicitly to do the best he can within the likely time constraints.
