According to a new bombshell report from CNN, U.S. officials reportedly coordinated with Russian operatives in order to damage Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump during last year’s presidential campaign.

More from the damning report:
The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, US officials told CNN.
This is partly what FBI Director James Comey was referring to when he made a bombshell announcement Monday before Congress that the FBI is investigating the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, according to one source.
The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings, according to those U.S. officials. The information is raising the suspicions of FBI counterintelligence investigators that the coordination may have taken place, though officials cautioned that the information was not conclusive and that the investigation is ongoing.
In a week filled with devastating developments for the White House, this appears to be the most damning as it would mean Trump’s campaign worked with a foreign state to defeat Clinton and undermine the entire American electoral process.
Not only does it warrant a non-partisan, independent investigation, but it should result in, to paraphrase the president, a complete and total shutdown of Trump’s agenda until we get to the bottom of this.
The CNN report also confirms what Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said earlier today on MSNBC when he told Chuck Todd that “there is more than circumstantial evidence now” showing that Russia and the Trump campaign were working together to defeat Clinton.
The road to Donald Trump’s impeachment is getting shorter by the minute.
