    Investigating campaign collusion is not exactly the FBI’s expertise, but organized crime is.

    What is President Donald Trump trying to hide?

    That’s the question on everyone’s mind since Trump fired FBI director James Comey on Tuesday. What’s been learned since that Watergate scandal-invoking bombshell dropped has only underlined the question.

    Comey had been seeking more funds to go where the investigation was taking the FBI, media reported Wednesday. The Justice Department called this assertion “totally false,” affirming that whatever trail Comey’s FBI was following will likely go no further.

    There are also several federal and state grand jury investigations underway, it was revealed Wednesday, first reported by two bloggers—Claude Taylor with ties to the Democratic Party and Louise Mensch with ties to right-wing sites. What these panels are specifically looking at is not known, although foreign surveillancesearch warrants reportedly have been issued. The presumption is they are tracing the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia to win the presidency.

    As the details around all these developments swirl—including claims by Republicans there is nothing to all of this—a tantalizing observation is emerging from investigative reporters who have been following Trump’s organized crime ties for months. What if the FBI investigation was heading into Trump’s mobster-connected business empire, including his partnerships with Russian oligarchs, where the president has broken racketeering, money-laundering and organized crime laws? This is the FBI’s expertise, not the murkier and harder-to-prove charge of Russian campaign collusion.

    This is yet another reason why we must see Trump's tax returns!

    Comey was fired because he was fixing to release the super duper true fact of who killed Kennedy and that was Trumps dad who hated Kennedy because he blamed him for the disappearance of that fat fuck fuck Hoffa.

    Comey wasn't asking for more funds , it was confirmed today


    Acting FBI Director McCabe backs up the Trump administration on one key detail


    Acting FBI Director McCabe backs up Trump administration on one key detail
    • McCabe said he was unaware of any request for additional resources.
    • McCabe said if the FBI were to request more resources, it would ask Congress.
    • The acting FBI director told senators he believes the FBI has sufficient resources for the probe.

    Keep 'em coming!! These threads are great!!

    We should have a repository for these LWNJ threads, so that as each lie is debunked the thread is then resurrected. Then the creator of the thread and its collaborators/cheerleaders can be shamed and ridiculed.

    Wait! Oh shit........Of course, that will never work.....LWNJ's have no shame!

    :rofl:

    TRump gave us the reason. It's just incoherent and nonsensical.

    It's way more likely, and the democrats were even panicked about it, that the FBI might reveal that the Clinton Foundation had ties to Russian mobsters.
