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!

The FBI was at that time because of the “pathetic” management by Comey and his approach in the E-Mail affair with the former democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was “in complete turmoil,” said Trump in a Tweet. “My dismissal of James Comey was a great day for America.” The Ex-FBI chief he denounced as “wicked cops”, would now be protected by his “best friend,” special investigator Mueller,.
When he was later asked in an Interview to the American TV channel Fox News, whether he had ever worked for Russia, said of Trump: “I think this is the Insulting thing I’ve ever been asked.” When reading the “NYT”article, going clear, “that they have found absolutely nothing.”
