Stepping back for a minute: If no other reporting existed on Trump/Russia, the fact that the FBI started a CI investigation to determine whether or not the sitting president of the US was either comprised by or an agent of Russia, it would be the biggest political story...ever.

President Trump’s actions so alarmed the FBI after James Comey’s firing that it began investigating if he was working on behalf of Russia

Evan McMullin
That the FBI had cause to investigate a sitting American president for possible collaboration with a foreign power against the nation should shock and awaken us to the gravity of our situation. Still beyond the perception of many, Trump has betrayed us.

The headline is stunning, and does not at all overstate the story

Why are we now reading a story about how the @FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation after @realDonaldTrump fired James Comey? Is it because people at @TheJusticeDept are worried about what @MattWhitaker46 might do, or what Rosenstein's planned departure might mean?

Can any elected official explain *why* the American people should not be alarmed that the FBI thought Donald Trump might be acting to advance Russia’s interests over our own? Republicans, you are Americans first. Your country needs you.

The @nytimes is reporting that after @realDonaldTrump fired @Comey, the FBI opened a counter-intelligence investigation into whether Trump was secretly working against America on behalf of Russia. It is time for every American to open their eyes: Donald Trump is a T-R-A-I-T-O-R.

BREAKING: “F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia”. Never before in the history of the United States have law enforcement officials feared that the American President was working for a foreign power against the US

Big takeaway: The FBI opens a counterintelligence investigation on the President of the United States if it has a reason to believe that his actions are putting the interests of a foreign country over those of our own. Good night.

Kurt Eichenwald
Just keep saying this to yourself. The FBI has enough evidence to open an investigation into whether the President of the United States was a Russian asset. We are in Grisham novel.

BREAKING: the day after Trump canned Comey he invited the Russian FM and ambassador to the Oval Office and said the heat was off now that he canned the head of the FBI.

Plot line: “The FBI is searching for a Russian mole in our government who turns out to be ...the President.” 5 years ago the fiction editor of every publisher would have tossed the manuscript, saying the plot was ridiculous. 5 years from now they’ll send it to the history editor.

With regard to the @nytimes report where @fbi thought Trump working for the Russians was a Counterintelligence threat? I’ve been saying this on national TV & in books for 2 years 4 months.

Peter Daou
OK, wait: everyone is buzzing about a NYT story that the FBI opened an inquiry into whether Trump was secretly working for Russia. I'm confused. Is there anything "secret" about it? Hasn't he been doing it out in the open -- with the GOP's help?
12 Jan, 01:39 AM UTC

NYT reports that law enforcement officials were so concerned by Trump's actions after firing Comey that the FBI began investigating whether Trump was a Russian agent:

It is the FBI that should be embarrassed by this
12 Jan, 01:51 AM UTC
Rantt Media
This is a bombshell The FBI launched a probe after Comey was fired, that Mueller took over, into whether @realDonaldTrump is working on behalf of Russia Not just campaign collusion Whether the President of the United States is literally a Russian asset
12 Jan, 01:57 AM UTC
Renato Mariotti
Given that the FBI was investigating whether Trump was a Russian agent, it’s easy to see why Rosenstein appointed Mueller. Can there be any serious question that he made the right decision?

This shows the Comey crew at the FBI was unhinged in its @realDonaldTrump derangement syndrome.

#TrumpRussia LET'S RECAP: The sitting POTUS was elected with the help of a MASSIVE Russian cyberattack. There were extensive contacts between his campaign and the Russians. He and the GOP have attacked the FBI and intel agencies to cover it up. He ALWAYS does Putin's bidding.
12 Jan, 02:33 AM UTC
Paul Sperry
Here's the lede the NYT should have written: An ex-acting FBI director tied to Clinton machine now under grand jury investigation for lying to federal agents opened both a criminal & counterintelligence investigation of a sitting president based on a Democrat dossier & NBC News
12 Jan, 04:34 AM UTC
Undercover Huber
You’re right, it is the biggest political story ever. But not for the reason you think it is. FBI targeted a President, covered it up, found nothing & still have nothing. With an assist from you guys Meaning: if they can do it to POTUS, they can do it to anyone That’s the story
12 Jan, 02:15 AM UTC
Barbara Malmet
The House impeached Bill Clinton for lying about being blown. Will they move to impeach a man whom the FBI has reasonable suspicion was working on behalf of Russia and blowing America? Hello high crimes and misdemeanors.
12 Jan, 03:58 AM UTC
Adam Jentleson 🎈
The simplest explanation has always been right: Trump had extensive Russian ties before he ran because Russia saved his business. When he ran, Russians offered to help and he accepted. It's always been obvious - we've just been afraid of the consequences.
12 Jan, 03:09 AM UTC
Tom Fitton
I am outraged by today's @NYTImes report that FBI spied on @RealDonaldTrump. And that Mueller seems to have continued the operation.
12 Jan, 04:09 AM UTC
So lemme get this straight: FBI open investigation into Trump BEFORE he was inaugurated because they suspected he was a Russian asset. Trump get's told by the Russians he's under investigation. Trump fires FBI Director Comey, then invites the Russians to the WH to gloat??
12 Jan, 03:23 AM UTC
Richard W. Painter
It looks like the FBI has found a mole. FBI investigated how Trump's actions seemed to benefit Russia @CNN
12 Jan, 05:01 AM UTC
Andrew Weinstein
If news broke that the FBI investigated any other American President for secretly working for Russia against U.S. interests it would be the biggest political story ever. Because it involves Donald Trump we just call it Friday.
12 Jan, 04:46 AM UTC
Nick Short
Trump fires Comey, so FBI retaliates by opening an investigation into Trump. Not a great look for the FBI.
12 Jan, 06:07 AM UTC
Steven Beschloss
It’s breathtaking to think the FBI opened a counterintel probe of a president of the United States & his possible role as Russian operative. But also realize, beyond Trump, we have no template to determine what to do if true. You can’t install Pence. Pres. Pelosi? Pres. Clinton?
12 Jan, 04:30 AM UTC
Ed O'Keefe
“Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security.”
12 Jan, 01:25 AM UTC
Maybe not paying the FBI was a bit of a mistake.
12 Jan, 02:00 AM UTC
The Hoarse Whisperer
In the days after Comey’s firing, the FBI opened a COUNTERINTELLIGENCE investigation of Trump himself. WOW! Unlike the initial Trump-Russia investigation (which was looking primarily at events in 2016), the counterintel investigation was basically surveillance in 2017+. 2/ The Hoarse Whisperer's photo on The FBI
12 Jan, 03:41 AM UTC
Josh Marshall
So the FBI believed they had to investigate whether the President of the United States was an agent of the Russian government or unwittingly acting at Russia’s behest. All good, all good.

Worth trotting out...what would reaction be on the other side if it were revealed that Obama was subject of FBI counterintelligence investigation...
12 Jan, 04:49 AM UTC
Chuck Ross
Page's testimony also suggests that FBI started seeking FISA *after* obtaining the dossier from Steele. This would tend to support what's already obvious: the dossier was an essential component of the FISA application.

WTFGOP? Jail For #Individual1
The biggest story of the night is not that @realDonaldTrump is conspiring against the United States & working for Russia. That’s obvious The real story is, now we know for sure the FBI has evidence. The biggest scandal in American history is about to unfold It’s Mueller Time
12 Jan, 06:17 AM UTC
Peter Daou
The #TreasonSummit was concrete evidence that Trump's loyalties lie with the Kremlin. Not to mention mocking the fired FBI director to Russian operatives in the Oval Office. Having multiple calls/meetings with Putin. Obstructing #Mueller's probe by firing Comey and Sessions.
12 Jan, 02:48 AM UTC
Brian Klaas
Perhaps Republicans should reconsider whether it’s wise to allow a man with dangerously authoritarian impulses—who the FBI investigated as a possible agent of the Kremlin—emergency powers over a manufactured “crisis”? Just a thought.
12 Jan, 08:22 AM UTC
@DavidCayJ @nytimes @FBI Dear Trump defenders, do you remember when you learned the truth about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny? Well, it's time we had a talk about Donald Trump.

12 Jan, 02:38 AM UTC
NYT story last night states the FBI CI investigation into Trump was handed off to Mueller. That means the Mueller investigation isn't just an investigation into collusion, but a counter-intelligence investigation into Trump. Bloody hell @LouiseMensch @thespybrief @ericgarland
12 Jan, 07:42 AM UTC
Federal counterintelligence agents began an investigation of Donald Trump last year that aimed to find out whether the president had a clandestine agenda to help Russia, reports say.

NYT (Oct 31, 2016): "Investigating Donald Trump, the FBI sees no clear links to Russia." NYT (January 12, 2019): "FBI investigated if Trump worked for the Russians."
12 Jan, 09:04 AM UTC
@jufi3801 @TeaPainUSA Not exactly. The FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation with trump as the target. Never in the history of the US has a president been investigated by law enforcement as a possible spy/operative of a foreign hostile power.
12 Jan, 04:55 AM UTC
Krissy Morrison
The “FBI” was Andrew McCabe, Peter Strozk, Lisa Page and James Comey. All have been let go from the FBI for political bias / misconduct. You left that part out. Hacks.

Indivisible Network
You know what the real national emergency is and not the fake crisis Trump wants to distract us with at the border? The FBI opened an investigation into whether the President of the United States was working on behalf of Vladimir Putin to undermine American interests!

In the midst of the #TrumpShutdown, while @PressSec is attacking the @FBI, a prominent Russian who partied with Trump and the Agalarovs at the Miss Universe Pageant in Moscow in 2013 has posted a not-so-veiled death threat to RBG on Twitter.

Understatement of the new millennium: “The decision to investigate Mr. Trump himself was an aggressive move by F.B.I. officials...” Was Dep AG Rosenstein asked for authority or did Bureau senior management go full Hoover/CoIntelPro? Calling @LindseyGraham

@JohnWHuber @FBI was more concerned that @realDonaldTrump publicly expressed a desire for Russia, anyone to find the missing/destroyed emails than they were about that fact that Hillary was illegally communicating classified documents on an unsecure server that was hacked by foreigners.
12 Jan, 02:50 AM UTC
@CyrusMMcQueen The FBI is weakened during the shutdown. That’s critical.

So now that we know the FBI started investigating Trump after he fired Comey to determine whether he is a Russian asset shouldn’t they also be investing Nunes and other GOP politicians who have attempted to thwart that investigation?

Trump fired Comey-it set off alarms🚨 The FBI worried Trump was there to do harms Mueller took over-Truth & Justice the quest Investigating wrongdoing at Rosenstein’s request Trump is a puppet-there’s no harm he won’t do Doing all of Russia’s bidding until he is through A.Silver-MeMEs & GIFs's photo on The FBI

It must be made clear by news networks and guests that a #counterintelligence investigation and a criminal investigation do not need the same criteria to be started or that negative CI findings always lead to criminal charges. #Comey #MuellerInvestigation

I predict that Mitch McConnell will finally distance himself from DT and let the bills come to the Senate floor. There is nothing left for him to do after that NYT story 1/11 that says the FBI/Mueller are investigating Trump as a Russian operative. Thoughts?
