Russia: The 'cloud' over the Trump White House

Throughout the confusion of Donald Trump's campaign and the chaotic events of his early days in the White House, one controversy has clung to the Trump team like glue: Russia.

US intelligence agencies have concluded Moscow tried to sway the presidential election in favour of Mr Trump.

It is alleged that Russian hackers stole information linked to the campaign of his rival Hillary Clinton and passed it to Wikileaks so it could be released to undermine her.

Congressional committees were set up to investigate the matter and, in March, then-FBI director James Comey confirmed the bureau had its own inquiry.

President Trump sacked Mr Comey on 9 May, citing his reason as "this Russia thing", in a move that shocked Washington and fuelled claims of a cover-up.

However, it did not halt the investigation. On 18 May, the department of justice appointed ex-FBI director Robert Mueller as special counsel to look into the matter.

Mr Mueller has not given any details of his investigation but US media have reported he is investigating Mr Trump for possible obstruction of justice, both in the firing of Mr Comey and whether Mr Trump tried to end an inquiry into sacked national security adviser Michael Flynn.

There is a "cloud" over every Republican President. It's called the lying, character assassinating, drama queen, propaganda machine called the left. And the fall of the left is, now everybody knows it, which is why the media approval rating has tanked.

1)Collusion isn't illegal.

2)Trump can fire the FBI director legally for no reason.

3)Crazy and collusion that isn't even a crime is all the left has left.

4)Even if it were illegal and proven, Pence moves in, and he's waaaaay more conservative than Trump. Good luck with that.

I read the reports released, and they seriously got nothing.

Hate to break it to you and all the other believers but... The Russia thing is something that was made up by Hillary's campaign for the election. It's a made up story. There is nothing to it.

You can blame Hillary's campaign for starting the whole birther controversy with Obama too, but you know, blame Trump for that and call him racist.

It's ok to blame the president. That is the American way. The president is the national scapegoat.
