Trump Goes Ballistic As His Own Intel Community Investigates Whether He’s A Security Threat

Donald Trump is melting down in plain sight on Saturday after The New York Times reported late Friday that the FBI opened an investigation into whether he was working on behalf of Russia.

According to the report, “In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests.”

Let that sink in for a moment: The intelligence community is investigating the president of the United States for working on behalf of a foreign adversary.

Former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi underscored the stunning way the evidence is being gathered – not just via the U.S. intelligence community but from intelligence shared from our allies.

Trump is going ballistic on Twitter

As of this writing, Trump has already fired off more than 10 tweets Saturday morning, not only raging at The New York Times, as PoliticusUSA’s Leo Vidal wrote a short time ago, but also claiming he’s been tougher than any president on Russia and that Democrats are to blame for his shutdown, which is now the longest in U.S. history.

“I have been FAR tougher on Russia than Obama, Bush or Clinton,” Trump said. “Maybe tougher than any other President.”

Here are a few of the president’s unhinged ramblings:

As Former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi said on Saturday, this is all likely just the tip of the iceberg and Trump knows it.

All of the publicly reported information is damning enough, but Robert Mueller and the intelligence community likely know much more.

Donald Trump’s rage tweets on Saturday don’t offer any denials for the latest reporting that he’s being investigated for working on behalf of Russia. Instead, they show a man who is panicking because he knows he’s been caught.
