Under surveillance all along

A Twitter observer on why the news that the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation of Trump is such big news:

That’s where to start at the beginning. I’ll summarize some of it. This wasn’t just about what Trump did in 2016, i.e. historical, it was surveillance in 2017 and onward. Surveillance of a president isn’t something they do casually.

The DOJ had to approve the counterintel investigation.

If Sessions didn’t know about it, that means Rosenstein kept it from him. If Trump explodes at Rosenstein…

The FBI probably knows all about Trump’s face to face with Putin in Helsinki.

Mueller never called in Kushner or Junior because questioning them would have given away the counterintel operation.

He ends with a wallop.

Great punchline.
