Donald Trump has seriously screwed himself thanks to his cozy relationship with Russia and its leader, Vladimir Putin.
As if his recent accusations against former President Barack Obama wiretapping him in the Trump Tower weren’t bad enough, this has inspired the congressional Russia investigation to move forward at a faster speed. This is terrible news for Trump and the future of his administration – according to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), a top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, the FBI is now cooperating more than ever in the investigation. According to Schiff, who went on ABC’s The Week to speak about the matter, this changes things drastically for Trump:
“But I do want to give you one other update, George. I have been very critical of the FBI and their willingness to cooperate in the investigation. I can say that that’s substantially changed. And I’m now very pleased at the level of cooperation we’re getting from the FBI. I hope that continues. There’s still more to be ironed out along those lines, but I think that’s moved in a very positive direction.”
The FBI has changed its tone after Schiff blasted the Bureau for keeping important information from Congress and Trump’s DOJ wouldn’t put forth a statement clearing the FBI of accusations that they wiretapped Trump during his presidential campaign. Basically, the FBI is now doing everything it can to cooperate against this corrupt POTUS, and they fully intend to hand over any intelligence information congressional investigators need.
The Trump administration basically screwed itself by accusing Obama and the FBI of being involved in a wiretapping (which Trump has zero evidence for, by the way). Trump has done his best to deny and distract from the Russia scandal, but it’s now gotten to the point where he can no longer control what happens and this investigation is moving forward, whether he likes it or not.
