The FBI Has Been Investigating Trumps Russia Ties Since July

I don't know if everyone else realised this was specified, but it seems important to me. It's not just that the FBI got involved in October or later.

HIMES: Thank you.

Director Comey, in -- in the remaining minutes here. I appreciate your frankness on the topic of an ongoing investigation and appreciate your inability to go too much further than you went. But I do want to ask you a question to try to clear up some confusion.

This committee, of course, is engaged in investigation about links, as you said, between the Trump campaign and the Russians, should there be any possible collusion. We've had a number of statements very early in the investigation that there was no evidence of collusion. This is still very early in our investigation, is it fair to say that you're still relatively early in your investigation?

COMEY: It's hard to say because I don't how much longer it will take. But we've been doing this -- this investigation began in late July, so for counterintelligence investigation that's a fairly short period of time.

HIMES: So, you used the word coordination which to me suggests that you are in fact investigating whether there was coordination between U.S. persons and the Russians. Is it fair for me to assume that we shouldn't simply dismiss the possibility that there was coordination or collusion between the Russian efforts and U.S. persons as an investigatory body?

COMEY: Well all I can tell you is what we're investigating which includes whether there was any coordination between people associated with the Trump campaign and the Russians.

3. Yet he was fine saying they were investigating Clinton. Of course, nothing came of that.

Well, other than losing the election.

5. I know.

That's why it seems like circular paper pushing to me.

This investigation should have been over with by
October at the latest.

Instead we got Comey's nonsense about Clinton's
emails.

7. Trump is ACTUALLY doing things illeagal and bad for this country

and they "claimed" Hillary did something bad and even though they found her to not be guilty they still fucking blame her and put Beelzebub on a pedestal.

8. Yet it was never made public until today.

I wonder what impact it would have if the the FBI director were to come out and announce an active investigation involving a candidate? Oh, wait...
