Who won between Hillary and Trump in the 2016 election results? The correct answer is Russia.
That was a joke made three years ago, but it is still circulating in the US Politics as FBI is still investigating into the Russian interference in US election. Last week, NY times publishesd a report that said that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has started the investigation into Trump’s alleged relation with Moscow.
In reply to that Report, Trump claimed that he never worked, and will never work for Russian Intelligence Agencies. According to a report by CNN, Trump was talking to reporters in White House’s South Lawn and there he said, “I never worked for Russia, and you know that answer better than anybody. It’s a whole big fat hoax. It’s just a hoax.”
Trump also said that the people behind the investigation against him are nothing but scoundrels and this fact is known to everyone.
He called the FBI agents working against him “known scoundrels” and “dirty cops”.
According to Trump, when he fired Comey and officials agents like Lisa Page, Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe, the FBI felt betrayed and that’s why some “dirty cops” are trying to malign his name.
According to the report by New York Times, The FBI thinks that Trump has made some policy decision that doesn’t align with US but that of Russia. By investigating into the matter, FBI is trying to find out whether Trump did it knowingly or unwittingly undrer the influnce of Russia.
According to some officials, the decision to sack Comey out of his office was not just under someone else’s influence but also was an obstruction of Justice.
Russia, on the other hand, has denied every accusation against it, be it rigging the elections or sacking some officials.
Many American Intelligence Agencies believe that it was Russia who started an online campaign to influence Russian elections.
