the Federal Bureau of Investigation probed whether Trump was working for Moscow - NYT

The New York Times reports that The Federal Bureau of Investigation turn into fretful after Mr Trump fired FBI director. The White House has condemned the report that the FBI opened an inquiry into whether Trump was secretly working for the Russia.

Officials of the law enforcement became concerned by the behavior of Mr. Trump in May 2017 as he sacked the director of FBI James Comey. This investigation reportedly examined about whether President Trump was a security threat to the nation.

On the other hand, Mr. Trump said that there was no valuable reason or evidence for such probe set up. He revealed that learned in the failing New York Times that every corrupt former leader of the FBI is almost forced or fired to leave the agency for some bad reasons and opened an investigation on him with no proof and reason when he fired Lyin’ James Comey.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House media secretary said that this issue is really absurd. James Comey was dismissed as he is a despoiled partisan hack and his deputy Andrew McCabe is known liar fired by the FBI. As compared to the former President Obama who let foreign adversaries and Russia push the nation around, President Trump has been tough on Russia.

US Intelligence agencies in 2016 told that Russia had done a variety of cyber missions and published various fake news on social media to boost Donald Trump and the overall damage his rival for the presidency namely Hillary Clinton.

The counterintelligence investigation rolled into the Mueller inquiry into the interference of Russia in the 2016 election. This investigation part is sought to establish whether President was knowingly supporting the Kremlin in opposition to the interests of the nation or unwittingly fallen under the influence of the Moscow.  This case’s criminal aspect concerned that Trump’s sacking of Mr Comey and whether this decision was an obstruction of the justice.

The former FBI director told congressional hearing about Mr. Trump told him about he expects loyalty and pressured him to end the overall inquiry into the former national security adviser Michel Flynn. On the other hand, Michel Flynn pleaded very guilty to lying about his contacts with the ambassador of Russia to the US.

The FBI investigation was completed in full by the special counsel Robert Mueller who leads an inquiry into whether campaign of Mr. Trump and transition team colluded with the Moscow for influencing the US elections in 2016. Mr. Mueller appointed after a couple of days of Mr. Comey’s firing.

President Trump has denied the complicity with the Russia. He called the Muller probe that the highest possible political witch hunts in the history of the nation. The overall inquiry has put the closet associates of the president in the dock. Michael Cohen is his former personal lawyer. He was sentenced to 3 years in prison for campaign both finance and fraud crimes. However, his campaign chief Paul Manafort convicted about the financial fraud. Former law enforcement officials listen to this case in detail with an aim to find the truth.
