DOJ kept investigators from completing probe of Trump ties to Russia: report | TheHill
It seems that we will never know exactly what was going on between Russia and the Trump Business?campaign as Mueller was ordered not to go n that direction with the probe. I find this interesting as there seems to be little difference between Trump businesses and the Trump campaign, so how would you even determine if collusion occurred without investigating both?

Why do you believe anything the NYT and their unnamed source says?

If the NYT reported that an unnamed source told them that a green-skinned alien shoved a probe up their ass...would you believe them?

Who cares?

I Mean seriously at this point who cares?

He can defraud average Americans (Trump University).

He can steal money from a childrens cancer charity fund.

He can **** a porn star and most probably use campaign funds to pay her for her silence.

There's nothing he can't do, he can meddle in an investigation into himself.

He can ****up one of the greatest events in our lifetimes (Covid Pandemic).

He can transparently rig the election by literally dismantling the post office and rail against voting safely during the pandemic he has mishandled.

He can in a public press conference side with a geopolitical enemy against his own intelligence agencies.

So who cares?

He can do anything.

America is his country now and he can do what he wants.

Whatever.

The original article appeared in the NYT and another poster had linked - in another thread about the same subject - to Weissmann's comment on said article:


"NYT story today is wrong re alleged secret DOJ order prohibiting a counterintelligence investigation by Mueller, “without telling the bureau.” Dozens of FBI agents/analysts were embedded in Special Counsel's Office and we were never told to keep anything from them. 1 of 2
Also erroneous is NYT claim "Rosenstein concluded the F.B.I. lacked sufficient reason to conduct an investigation into the president’s links to a foreign adversary.” See DOJ Special Counsel Appointment Order, para. (b)(i). 2 of 2

In other words, the Interesting fact about Mueller investigation and Trump turns out to be another lie.

Thar could change in a new administration. Yet another reason that electing Biden is imperative. Interestingly the Senate report on Russia was more detailed in it's reporting of the Trump's campaign Russian connections than the Mueller report. This story is far from over though it may take more years for the depth of the collusion to be revealed.

The nearly-1,000 page report from the Senate Intelligence Committee, its fifth and final examination of a years-long effort to probe Russian meddling in 2016, describes several episodes in which Trump and members of his campaign were keen to accept Russia’s help -- and in some instances goes further than even former special counsel Robert Mueller in detailing ties between the campaign and Russian individuals.
