President Trump on Saturday is unleashed after a Friday night report in the New York Times that US law enforcement officials "became so concerned about the president's behavior"In the days following the dismissal of James Comey by Trump as director of the FBI,"They started looking to find out if he was working on behalf of Russia against American interests."

According to the NYT, agents and senior officials F.B.I. officials "suspicious of Mr Trump's ties with Russia during the 2016 campaign"But they hesitated to open an investigation on him, said the people, partly because they did not know how to proceed with an investigation of such sensitivity and magnitude.

What happened next? A story of collusion was born and was carefully crafted, as the newspaper explains:

The president's activities before and after Mr. Comey's dismissal in May 2017, in particular two bodies in which Mr Trump linked the dismissal of Comey to the investigation of Russia, helped boost the counter-intelligence component of the investigation, said the people.

The investigation had "explosive implications" because the counterintelligence investigators had to determine whether the president's actions posed a possible threat to national security. The agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unknowingly fallen under the influence of Moscow.

Criminal and counterintelligence elements have been combined into one investigation, former law enforcement officials said in interviews over the last few weeks, because if Mr. Trump had ousted the head of the F.B.I. Preventing or even ending the Russian investigation was both a possible crime and a national security issue. The counterintelligence division of F.B.I. it occupies national security issues.

Despite everything, "… former law enforcement officials outside the investigation asked if the agents went beyond the opening. "

Then in paragraph nine, we read "No evidence has been publicly disclosed that Mr. Trump was secretly in contact with Russian government officials or took any direction from them."

Or, as Washington ExaminerByron York summarizes:

Then Comey told Trump on three occasions that he was not under investigation, leaving the public with the impression that he was there. Trump naturally angry. Then, when Trump fired Comey – as some advisers had been advocating for months – the FBI saw it as treason. 2/4

Outcome of the investigation: "No evidence has been publicly disclosed that Mr. Trump was secretly in contact with Russian government officials or took any direction from them." Does the NYT tell the story of Trump or the misdeeds of the FBI? 4/4 End. https://t.co/L8U5rPbJup

Some were even more laconic, summing up the "scoop" as "whoever gets bribed in Comey must be a Russian spy".

LOL !! Anyone who shoots corrupt Comey must be a Russian spy. #SCOOP https://t.co/QfZuDiYqek

Responding to NYT's "NYT-BELL" report – which curiously resurrects the narrative right of "Russian collusion" as Trump is about to test his presidential authority on the wall of the border, the president whipped on Twitter.

Wow, I just learned in the New York Times missed that the former corrupt FBI leaders, almost all fired or forced to leave the agency for very bad reasons, opened an investigation on me for no reason No evidence, after I fired Lyin & James Comey, a total sleaze! "

Funny thing about James Comey. Everyone wanted him to be fired, Republican and Democrat. After the faked and sloppy investigation of Crooked Hillary, where she was interviewed on the weekend of July 4, neither registered nor sworn, and where she said she knew nothing (a lie), the FBI was boiling (see NY Post). because of the poor leadership of Comey and the way he handled Clinton's disorder (not to mention his usurping the powers of the Justice Department). My removal from James Comey was a great day for America. He was a tortuous policeman who is totally protected by his best friend, Bob Mueller, and the 13 angry Democrats – fleeing machines who have NO interest in attacking the Real Collusion (and much more still) Crooked Hillary Clinton, his campaign, and the National Democratic Committee. Just watch!

I have been much harder towards Russia than Obama, Bush or Clinton. Maybe more difficult than any other president. At the same time, and as I have often said, getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. I really expect that one day we will have good relations with Russia again!

Lyin 'James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter S and his lover, Agent Lisa Page, and more, all dishonored and / or dismissed and caught in the act. These are just a few of the losers who have attempted to number your president. Part of the witch hunt. Remember the "insurance policy?" -Donald Trump

Although there is nothing new here to confirm the collusion between Trump and Russia, as Byron York asks following the article, New York Times story about Trump or the FBI's misdeeds?
