Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, January 12, 2019

On Saturday morning, Jan. 12, Trump tweeted: "Wow, just learned in the Failing New York Times that the corrupt former leaders of the FBI, almost all fired or forced to leave the agency for some very bad reasons, opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof after I fired Lyin' James Comey, a total sleaze!" [Italics added.]

Trump complains that the F.B.I. initiated an investigation of him without first having "proof." He fails to understand that the purpose of an initial investigation is to determine whether there IS "proof" of a crime committed by someone -- i.e., enough probable-cause evidence that they committed a crime to proceed with charges against them. If enough such "proof" already exists, you don't need an initial investigation, you just arrest them, charge them, and proceed to develop further evidence for trial.

Uh...isnt the "proof" what the "investigation" is supposed to uncover?

He has the best words, huh?

His behavior is plenty incriminating enough to launch an investigation.

If he has done nothing wrong, he has nothing to fear from a professional investigation, am I right Repubs?

The truth will set him free, right?

Fly, Trump, fly high, fly free on the wings of truth.

Heh, heh.

I wonder if we'll get to read the termination letter for Comey that Trump and Miller cooked up and that so horrified McGahn, because he thought it proved Trump was trying to obstruct justice, and that Rosenstein had to massively rewrite in order to cover Donnie's traitorous derriere?

Yeah Trump should know you only need feelings of hatred to open up an investigation

This is the same argument OJ had about the LA homicide department after the Nicole Brown-Simpson/Ronald Goldman murders.

Mackris, you ignorant slat, His behavior is totally consistent as way too servile to Russian interests. The FBI are generally quite conservative leaning.

Comey had a "Trump for President" yard sign in his yard, fer Krighst's sake.

Your feckless deflection is noted, and you are loathed.

Xорошего дня, Мудак

Or in Trump's case, a corruption, ethics and espionage problem. But don't take my word for it:

When you're attacking FBI agents because you're under criminal investigation, you're losing

I'm starting to believe with all of the White Knighting of the Orange Fuhrer that Comrade Fat Andy Matress does, that his Daddy is Ruskie!
