Trump Loses His Sh*t In Twitter Tantrum Over Bombshell Report About FBI Investigation


President Donald Trump threw a temper tantrum over a New York Times report revealing that the FBI opened an investigation on suspicion that Trump is a Russian asset shortly after he fired former FBI Director James Comey in May 2017.

On Friday, the New York Times revealed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was concerned enough that Trump may be working for Russia that they opened a secret probe, which is an extraordinary move that paved the way for a Russia investigation headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

The revelation is devastating to Trump, especially since Mueller’s final report is already expected to be damning.

Of course, it was only a matter of time before Trump had a meltdown over the news, which he did on Saturday morning for an hour on Twitter:

Trump has no proof that the FBI had no proof. In fact, this investigation was opened after he fired Comey and had to be run by the Justice Department with evidence to proceed, especially since the subject of the investigation is the sitting president.

According to former FBI counterintelligence assistant director Frank Figliuzzi:

“The FBI is privy to all sorts of information, and if you’re going to open a case, as the New York Times reports, into the President of the United States you’re going to have more than just unstable public behavior. You’re going to have something that at least gives you a reasonable suspicion, if not specific and articulable facts…. it means they’ve got intercepted communications, it means they’re privy to how these Russians were talking to the president or about the president.”

Trump continued by attacking Hillary Clinton.

Trump has zero proof that the investigation against Hillary was rigged and he certainly has no evidence that she colluded with Russia. If that were the case, his own Justice Department and FBI would have opened new investigations by now. As it so happens, they’ve refused because there’s no evidence.

Trump concluded by bragging about his “good relations” with Russia while falsely claiming that he’s been tougher on Russia than any other president:

Trump has repeatedly made the same accusations against Clinton without any proof. Meanwhile, there’s a lot of evidence that Trump or his campaign colluded with Russia. In order to open an investigation into a sitting president, the FBI had to have evidence justifying it and they had to go through the Justice Department, which again, was being overseen by Trump’s own appointees. At some point, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein saw enough reason to refer the investigation to a special counsel, which is when Mueller was brought in.

These are the rantings and ravings of a desperate man who knows he is caught. There’s no other explanation. This new report is a bad thing for Trump, and he knows it, so he is throwing every accusation at the wall to see what sticks, even if every single one of them has been repeatedly debunked.

He’s terrified that the law is coming for him. And he should be.
