    Tip of the iceberg aimed at undermining Trump.


    ...

    From there, the tight group of FBI agents went forward in interviewing Trump associates, which was kept secret for fear of leaks that could sway the campaign.

    The official look into the Trump campaign reportedly began just days after the bureau closed its investigation into Clinton for her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of State.

    Agents reportedly avoided interviewing Trump associates and subpoenaing documents to keep the investigation secret. Only about five Justice Department officials were aware of the case, according to officials cited in the story, in contrast to the dozen who would normally be briefed on such a national security matter.

    That...directly contracts your comment. It says they were careful and quite so that it wouldn’t sway the campaign.

    Fortunately, Trump had Russian Intelligence Agents on his side and they thwarted the US agents...now we get to enjoy the Manchurian Candidate for four years....

    Putting it in a larger context sounds much less ominous

    The case, named after a Rolling Stones lyric, was used by only the small group of agents sent to interview the Australian ambassador to the United Kingdom, who had evidence of possible collusion between Russia and a Trump adviser.

    Five agents embarked to London in the summer of 2016 for a rare interview with the diplomat after deliberations between American and Australian officials, where they gathered information that would provide the basis for the Russia probe that is still ongoing.

    The Times previously reported that a young foreign policy aide on the Trump campaign, George Papadopoulos, revealed he knew of hacked Democratic Party emails to Australian Ambassador Alexander Downer over late-night drinks in London.

    Downer reportedly notified U.S. intelligence officials of his run-in with Papadopoulos after the emails, which contained damaging information about 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton just as the aide had said, began to leak to the public.

    From there, the tight group of FBI agents went forward in interviewing Trump associates, which was kept secret for fear of leaks that could sway the campaign.

    It is the NY Times spin that is fascinating. Obviuodly the information about this cabal was soon to be made public, so the members of the cabal leaked to the Times, knowing that the Times would spin it.
