That's what it is. The Experts in intelligence are playing a chess game with Trump. He has the power to stop normal investigations,has no qualms about how it looks. So,the FBI and 16 other agencies are feeding the media in ways that Trump can't hide..he has no explanation. Once something is out- Trump cannot delete that...no Russian tossed off a balcony will stop the press from printing his secrets.
That's why I say-- should Donald Trump EVER try to create a junta like takeover? I know he would be taken out by somebody deep,deep,deep undercover.
America hasn't existed for 250 years to have a habitual liar con artist end freedoms for all.
