    because there isn't.

    why would the obama administration sit on it?
    Part of it is that in late 2015 and early 2016, no one thought he could win. But about the time of the hack of the DNC and Wikileaks' releasing what they found, then intelligence people thought there might well be a connection and that's when they got serious.

    IT WAS COMEY'S JOB AND HE FAILED. PRESIDENT OBAMA ONLY KNOWS WHAT THE INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES TOLD HIM. WE DON'T EVEN KNOW THAT COMEY TOLD OBAMA ANYTHING PRIOR TO THE CIA DIRECTOR GOING TO CONGRESS AND SENATE INTEL AGENCIES TO BRIEF THEM ON WHAT WAS GOING ON. THE CIA DIRECTOR WAS CONCERNED THAT COMEY HAD DONE BASICALLY SHIT WITH THE INTEL THAT THEY WERE GIVEN.
    comey is ONLY the director of the FBI. nothing more. you seem to be claiming comey knows everything that the CIA, NSA and what the other intelligent agencies know.

    You're engaging in unfounded speculation. The investigation is ongoing. The FBI is not going to reveal nor comment upon an ongoing investigation, because doing so would prevent them from finding all of the relevant facts that they need for a successful prosecution. I suspect that the FBI is now aware of far more participants in this alleged conspiracy than they were when they were first tipped off by foreign intelligence agencies of what was transpiring. Let them build their case. Then we'll see what they discovered.

    No. The investigations began in the spring and summer of 2016. Remember, Trump has whined about members of his campaign being surveilled?

    You have security clearance and access to the case files?

    Or are you merely pulling an opinion from your anus?

    I think the democrats should just back off this being such a big deal. I mean, the US interfered with 81 separate elections over 54 years. That's over 1.5 per year. And it's not even including the times the US sponsored military coups to forcibly overthrow democratically elected governments.

    I know it sucks, but a nation as hostile to democracy as the US can't act all shocked and horrified when another country puts it's foot on our scale. They are just following the rules the US established, namely "make sure it works out in whatever way is best for us".
