Donald Trump’s new Russian scandal
The FBI knew about the allegations before the election, it seems, and kept it dark.
And they are still keeping it dark.
All we can say for sure right now is that this is a perfect illustration of the way Comey improperly inserted himself into the election.
These scandalous rumors connecting Trump to the Russian government information is unproven and unverified, and the FBI director was right not to reveal it prior to the election.
He completely ignored that principle when it came to Clinton, and there can be no doubt that it made a difference in the outcome.
The fact that Comey clearly knew at the time that it was at least possible Trump had been compromised by a foreign government makes his decision even more shameful.
