The FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation to determine whether the president of the United States is a Russian asset.
In that context, "nyah nyah, Democrat Party" is pretty weak.
Um, the FBI opened a "case" to spy on a political candidate. Both Hillary and Obama were behind this, by the way. Treason indeed.
Um, nope. The FBI opened a case when Trump was a candidate to determine whether Russian intelligence was influencing his campaign and/or the election more broadly.
The counterintelligence investigation that the NYT learned about this past week was only opened after Trump's firing of the FBI director and telling a group of Russian visitors that he did it to take the heat off himself. Trump's habit of having secret, un-recorded meetings with Putin and/or his emissaries also set off alarm bells. So that second investigation was to determine whether president (not candidate) Trump was actively working as a Russian asset.
This is a shocking situation and the fact that you, like the rest of the GOP, are sticking your fingers in your ears and pretending that it's not happening is utterly disgraceful. If one-third of America literally doesn't care that the President may be consciously working on behalf of the Russian government, America as a nation won't last much longer.
