The day the world learned of the assassination of former FBI Director James Comey, a lot of things were at stake.
On Monday night, news broke that former CIA Director John Brennan had been named to lead the newly formed FBI in a Trump administration.
On Tuesday morning, a series of tweets by Trump and his senior advisers claimed the FBI was investigating former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, whose ties to Russia were now the subject of a congressional investigation.
And then came a tweet by Trump, saying: “This investigation is a witch hunt!”
The claim that the FBI is investigating Flynn and his ties to Russian officials is false.
Flynn resigned as national security adviser on Monday.
In a letter to Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray said Flynn’s resignation was based on his improper communication with the Russian ambassador.
The former acting attorney general, Sally Yates, wrote to Trump on Tuesday urging him to drop the investigation.
And yet, Trump’s tweet Monday evening seemed to take the FBI’s investigation into Flynn, and the allegations surrounding it, for granted.
And he was right: The FBI investigation into Russia and Flynn is ongoing.
There is no official announcement yet from the White House about the investigation into Trump and Flynn.
But what is clear is that the former national security advisor’s departure has been linked to the FBI investigation.
So why is the president making this accusation?
Well, it’s an attempt to deflect attention from the fact that the Russia investigation has been going on for more than a year and a half, and that a new FBI director has not been named.
And it’s a way of saying that this is a politically motivated witch hunt.
And if the FBI investigates Trump and he is implicated in this, then it will only get worse, according to several intelligence and law enforcement officials.
In addition to Flynn, other potential targets include former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who is also under FBI investigation; Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, Trump aide Michael Cohen, and his business associate Carter Page; and former National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn.
But Trump isn’t the only one making this claim.
On the Sunday shows, CNN’s Jake Tapper, NBC’s Chuck Todd, and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos all made the claim that Flynn and Manafort were investigated and that the Trump campaign was also under investigation.
The CNN report was followed up by ABC’s Martha Raddatz.
Stephanopoulos was even more explicit:The same CNN report that was being followed up on on Sunday night and Monday evening was cited by both Tapper and Stephanopoulos as evidence that Flynn had been investigated by the FBI.
And Trump’s tweets about the Comey investigation were followed by CNN’s reports about the FBI investigating Manafort.
This is the kind of baseless information that we have seen coming out of this administration in the last few days.
I don’t believe that there is a political motive for the president to make this claim, nor do I believe that the president is being partisan in his tweets.
The president has an obligation to keep his promises and to show that he has the full support of the American people.
But the fact is, the president and his team have been spinning a story for a long time.
In March, the White.
House released a list of the top 25 conspiracies that Trump and the White Houses staffers have been spreading since Trump’s inauguration.
And they included some of the more outlandish conspiracies of the Trump era, like that the Justice Department is trying to get the Trump tapes to the media.
These are the same kinds of conspiracies Trump and some of his surrogates have been pushing since he became president.
So why now?
Why is the White house spreading conspiracy theories and conspiracy theories?
There is a big difference between the WhiteHouse and the Trump administration: The WhiteHouse is staffed by former Trump staffers.
This administration has been run by former White House staffers.
And, as the New York Times’ Ben White has explained, Trump and others in his administration are very comfortable with their jobs.
And so, it would be hard for them to complain if the Whitehouse were staffed by members of the current administration.
So what does this have to do with the Russia story?
Well first of all, it has to do in large part with the fact Trump is very good at making the false claims that the media is spinning, that there are “rigged elections” or “rigging” the election.
And because Trump does this so well, it is easier to believe them, especially when the media itself is reporting on them.
The idea that Trump is making these false claims to deflect from the FBI and the ongoing Russia investigation is, in part, a way for Trump to deflect the attention from how the president has behaved and has behaved in the past.
Trump has not behaved professionally, as he has described it, over the last three months.
