Trump Hits Back Hard After Report Claims FBI Investigated Whether Trump Was A Russian Agent

The New York Times, in another stunning late Friday news dump, released a report that claims the FBI investigated President Trump for being a Russian agent.

The report claims that after Trump fired James Comey and made some comments in the media saying it was partially about Russia, the FBI debated internally and decided to take the extraordinary step to open a counterintelligence investigation into President Trump.

From The Daily Caller: The FBI opened an investigation into whether President Donald Trump was working on behalf of Russia just after the Republican fired James Comey as FBI director, according to The New York Times.

Special counsel Robert Mueller took over the inquiry upon his appointment May 17, 2017, just over a week after Trump fired Comey. It is unclear whether Mueller is continuing that part of the investigation, which has focused mainly on possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government, the Times reports.

It previously reported Mueller and the FBI are investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice over Comey’s firing, but the counterintelligence investigation into Trump had not been disclosed until the Times scoop.

The article did not indicate whether the FBI or Mueller developed evidence Trump was a Russian asset.

Enter President Trump who tweeted out a series shits across the bow:

“Wow, just learned in the Failing New York Times that the corrupt former leaders of the FBI, almost all fired or forced to leave the agency for some very bad reasons, opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof, after I fired Lyin’ James Comey, a total sleaze!”

…Funny thing about James Comey. Everybody wanted him fired, Republican and Democrat alike. After the rigged & botched Crooked Hillary investigation, where she was interviewed on July 4th Weekend, not recorded or sworn in, and where she said she didn’t know anything (a lie),….

…the FBI was in complete turmoil (see N.Y. Post) because of Comey’s poor leadership and the way he handled the Clinton mess (not to mention his usurpation of powers from the Justice Department). My firing of James Comey was a great day for America. He was a Crooked Cop……
