President Trumps the weekend, overshadowed by the already sensitive from the struggle over the partial Shutdown of the U.S. government, thrived thanks to the "New York Times" to be a Nuisance: On Friday evening, the newspaper reported, citing several anonymous sources, the FBI have examined in may 2017, after the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey, whether Trump's "work on behalf of Russia against American interests".
it remained Unclear whether Russia-special investigator Robert Mueller has pulled the counterintelligence investigation from the FBI, or whether the investigation had been set in silence. The report of the "New York Times," but shifted to Washington once more in a state of excitement: Was it conceivable that a US President was acting secretly as an Agent of a hostile Nation? And had become with Donald Trump , therefore, the nightmare of a "Manchurian candidate"?
hardly, however, trump's spokeswoman, Sarah Sanders, and later, the President reacted very strongly to the report in the newspaper. This is "absurd," said Sanders, while Trump tweeted on Saturday his anger from the soul: He had handled "far tougher with Russia as Obama, Bush or Clinton", nevertheless, you have determined against him "groundless and without evidence".
I have been FAR tougher on Russia than Obama, Bush or Clinton. Maybe tougher than any other President. At the same time, & as I have often said that getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. I fully expect that someday we will have good relations with Russia again!— Donald J.

The FBI needs no evidence
for no reason the investigations against Trump were, however, not Too often, he konsternierte as a candidate and President, the Americans with questionable statements about Vladimir Putin and Russia, several times he babbled Russian Propaganda, without apparent would have been where Trump had his information. The introduction of a "Counterintelligence"investigation of the FBI also requires no "evidence", but this should provide. It is based on suspicions, which are confirmed or refuted.
Not only in the course of the election campaign of 2016, the proximity Trumps and his team fell to the Kremlin, Hardly is the Republican candidate had been in January 2017 sworn in, moved in the White house under the then security Advisor, Michael Flynn discreet inquiries about mutmassliches "Polish invasion" in neighboring Belarus. This has caused "quite a stir, because there is no evidence of such Abuses to exist," reported the AP news Agency. The source of the bizarre Demands was suspected in Moscow, it was also feared that the false statements could serve the Kremlin as a pretext, in white Russia to invade.
That Trump divulged at the time of his meeting with Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in may 2017 in the White house, U.S. state secrets, is likely to have the attention of the counterintelligence division of the FBI aroused as to the mysterious affinity of the President to Vladimir Putin. It reached a climax at the Russian-American summit in Helsinki in July 2018, as Trump was acting against the Russians servile and submissive.
"we are in the third world war"
The Russian President has denied interfering in Moscow during the U.S. presidential election in 2016, "extremely strong and with Power," Trump said after the Meeting. Contrary to the findings of his intelligence services, he believed, apparently, Putin's claims of Innocence. Only days later, the US President, the Russian Propaganda sprinkled, as he described the accession of the Kremlin is fiercely opposed to Nato Montenegro as an error. "Montenegro is a tiny country with very strong and aggressive people," said Trump. "Maybe you have to be aggressive – and congratulations, we are in the third world war," said the President in an Interview with Fox News.
The remark shocked the foreign policy Establishment in Washington, because Trump had several times asked before the mutual assistance clause of the Nato Treaty in question. "He attacked Montenegro and the Nato obligations, questioned the President directly in the hands of Putin" criticized the late Senator John McCain the President.
Moscow has "the Right" done
last December, Trump became the new Lich as a mouthpiece for the Kremlin and apologized to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. The reason for this, said the President, were "terrorists" who "invaded Russia". Therefore, Moscow had done "the Right thing". The geschichtsk suffered on aging, led the Trump, otherwise friendly opinion page of the Wall Street Journal in a rare attack: "We can't remember such an absurd misrepresentation of an American President", indignant of the sheet.
where the President referred to his wisdom was unfathomable. The Kremlin, however, for many months, the invasion of Afghanistan-and-white clear. A Resolution is before the Duma, in the middle of February to be voted on. Why, however, Trump was of the line of Putin? Had he and the Russian are spoken in a phone call about it? And anyway, how touched trump's sudden interest in the Soviet Intervention in Afghanistan?
Like so much of the presidency Donald Trumps break this, and other claims, as well as the behavior of Trumps not attracted to Putin's suspicion that it would just walk in here with the right things. The answer to that might be that Trump, because an admirer of Putin, the Russian President would like to do a Favor or two in the hope to get something in return. Within the FBI but other and darker interpretations exist clearly. (Tages-Anzeiger)
