After one full year of the Russian Collusion investigation under Robert Mueller, the only thing we know for sure is that the FBI was looking into Trump's campaign long before there was even a suspicion that something might be up. Recent revelations about moles in the campaign seem to indicate that a Deep State operation was taking place to derail the presidential run. And Trump has had enough.
He has long been calling this a Witch Hunt, but has, until now, failed to take the steps necessary to expose it. Part of this reluctance would have been due to limit further allegations of obstruction of justice, but now that we know for sure that an operative (thought to be well-known Swamp dweller Stefan Halper) was working for the security services to infiltrate Trump's team, there can be no question that an investigation is called for.
In a tweet yesterday, the president announced that:
“I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes — and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!”
Naturally, social media is ablaze.
Quite what the exact form this investigation will take is unclear, but it shows that now is the time to start taking this seriously. What is most notable, is that none of the major news networks (traditionally so anti_trump) are shouting him down and calling it obstruction. Could this be because we already have so much evidence that this happened that a crime is almost a foregone conclusion?
