While most of the country was celebrating Halloween, late Monday night the FBI gave Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign a real treat, instead of the usual liberal tricks, when it came to uncovering his ties to Russia. A sweet end to the night came when they announced they didn’t find anything!
The New York Times reported that the FBI’s investigation into the potential links between Trump and Russia came up with zilch, nada, nothing.
“Law enforcement officials say that none of the investigations so far have found any conclusive or direct link between Mr. Trump and the Russian government,” The Times revealed.
The article also confirmed rumors that the FBI was indeed investigating Trump to find evidence that would prove the Russian government was influencing the U.S. presidential election. However, the investigation was unsuccessful in finding evidence to support that hypothesis.
Of course, the FBI sometimes gets it wrong … which is why it has now reopened the case on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her deleted emails.
FBI officials looked into possible financial connections between Trump staffers and Russia. They paid particularly close attention to Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort. Manafort once worked for a pro-Putin Ukrainian political party, but investigators were unable to find any other significant link.
“No evidence has emerged that would link (Trump) or anyone else in his business or political circle directly to Russia’s election operations,” The New York Times stated.
The FBI really went all in on this investigation, following a lead that was alleged to show communication between one of Donald Trump’s companies and Russia’s Alfa Bank, despite the Trump Campaign as well as Alfa Bank denying any communication between them.
Again, the FBI found nothing.
This is a cause for celebration, as for once the mainstream media has reported the truth … that Donald Trump is not as crooked as his opponent. We hope the FBI puts as much effort as it did into investigating Trump into finally discovering what was in Hillary Clinton’s missing emails.
