The FBI’s director just confirmed it’s investigating the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia

FBI Director James Comey has just dropped a bombshell — confirming for the first time that the FBI is investigating links between Trump allies and Russia.

“[The FBI is] investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts,” Comey said.

Comey’s comments were a direct rebuke to President Trump, who has long tried to argue that concerns about potential Russian involvement had been ginned up by Democrats for political gain. Comey is now effectively saying his own boss was misleading the American public, and that a formal criminal probe is indeed underway.

There will be subpoenas, there will be sworn testimony and depositions.
There will be threats of prosecution when underlings are found to have committed treason.
There will be deals cut to allow them to testify under oath, in court to save themselves from jail.

Rats don't stick together once the ship starts to sink.


That "Obama wiretapped me" bs didn't create the distraction that Trump wanted.
Gonna take a nuke launch or some yuuuge terrorist event to turn the spotlight off of Donald Trump now.

We say this coming (and I said so) weeks ago. The American pea pull need to understand what is at stake here. Any form of collusion in this matter is a criminal conspiracy to commit treason. If there was no collusion, the POTUS and his closest advisors are fools who have been duped by Russian intelligence. Those are the only options. Either way, its Amendment XXV coming up.

Why isn't this topic on UUU?

When it is Obama wiretapping Trump, p.com's moderators immediately censor. But when it is evidence-free Russian hackers or Trump connections, top of the Domestic board. I'm sick of the double standards.

Better get used to it b... this is a real live "bombshell" in the news today.
You are watching a bit of history unfold.

I have seen it before, with Nixon, it was pretty swift.

This will be faster than that was.

Nice try. This is news, it is testimony by the FBI Director to Congress. You cannot deny it is true, it is being broadcast as I type this.

There is also evidence, as presented in this same hearing in Congress, that Russia hacked the DNC. It is true, you cannot deny it and be believable.

There is no evidence of Obama wiretapping Trump. It is a lie spread by Trump and the Trumpies.

Welcome to reality, you may want to crawl back into Rightie World.

The investigation will uncover the specific acts of treason committed.

This might be in play

If Trump was given something from Russia and he reciprocated by using his position to ease policy...quid pro quo...
Well Houston, there is a problem..

It is treason to talk to people from a country and then relax sanctions? Let's talk about Iran then.

If they gave him something personally and he sold out the position of the country to repay that reward.
Yeah.
It's treason.

That's where an investigation comes into play.
Might be nothing here at all b

Like it was with Clinton.

Might be the beginning of the end,

Like it was for Nixon.

Disturbing? yes.
But it is gravely important that this be resolved.
Looking the other way will not cure the problems caused by the Russian interference in our election process. This can't be ignored.
If they decide to wash it over it will only cause greater problems down the road.

Let's just hope the FBI does their job. They already aided Trump one time and that won him the election. I'm not sure they can be trusted.

If it turns out that Trump was involved and there was collusion, what then? I don't see the GOP impeaching Trump. But, if he colluded with the Russians in an effort to influence the election, successfully or not, how can we let him continue as President? That would be insane. But I half way see this going that way.

It is against the law to accept campaign money or contributions in kind from non-US citizens or foreign governments or corporations.

It is illegal to steal information through hacking and illegal to disseminate it.

It is illegal to give aid or comfort to America's enemies or to conspire with a foreign power to effect the actions or policies of the federal government.

It is a crime of conspiracy to knowingly act in furtherance of any of the above crimes.

It is a crime of misprision to know of any of the above violations and not disclose them to the authorities.

To falsely accuse POTUS or other official of a criminal act such as surveillance without a warrant is the crime of libel.

Unfortunately I agree. This Congress may well toss away their own integrity and support treason.

If they do that we are in bigger trouble than we have ever been in this country.

A quick switch to President Pence under Amendment XXV is the best GOP outcome. Otherwise, the investigations and scandals will continue until until Election Day and result in a congressional wipeout followed by impeachment. Republicans who wish to survive this looming disaster will have to act now. Waiting until the Trump supporter minority figures out what is going on will be far to late.

If that happens the Dems will take back Congress in 2018, impeach and convict Trump. Then we'll have to deal with Pence in 2020, who should be easier to beat since WI, MI, OH and PA probably won't get fooled again.

OTOH, I wouldn't bet on any of it happening.

I thought as I got older, I would learn wisdom and patience, but the only thing I have learned so far is that I don't give a damn.
