Pretty darn obvious there, Chuck. They didn’t want to tip-off the Trumpster. He is part of the investigation. And was all along. But it was Manafort who had the deepest ties to Russia. This investigation isn’t about one person. It is a conspiracy involving several players. And Trump is one of them. Hope you understand now, Mr.Grassley:
Sen. Chuck Grassley is asking the FBI if it warned Donald Trump that Paul Manafort, whom he brought in as campaign chairman in 2016, was being watched by the agency because of his dealings with pro-Kremlin figures.And if there was no such FBI warning, Grassley says he wants to know why.The chairman of the Senate judiciary committee made the request in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday.The FBI declined to comment.“I write to inquire about whether the FBI ever provided the Trump campaign with a defensive briefing or other warning regarding attempts to infiltrate the campaign by people connected with, or compromised by, Russian intelligence,” Grassley wrote.
