Perhaps arguably, the more revelatory story is the White House's unwillingness to separate itself from the unfounded and outlandish claims by its President. However, it is becoming increasingly apparent that this administration is one of "conspiracy theories" that deny, deflect and attempt to delegitimize fact and fact-based institutions.
The investigation into Trump-Russia collusion may indeed be "official," but it is not a surprise. It may be more shocking that the FBI admits to commencing an investigation since July.
By your announcement today, there is now a cloud that undermines our system,” Representative Michael Turner, an Ohio Republican, pointedly told the FBI director. Under questioning, he said that the FBI began the investigation in late July, a disclosure that likely will inflame criticism from Democrats that Comey chose to publicly discuss the bureau’s inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s emails during the campaign but did not reveal it was also investigating the Trump campaign and Russian meddling.
Perhaps the real conspiracy is the misogyny that exists which is preventing a woman from coming into power. What other reason is there for the double standard in investigation practices that the FBI revealed today?
