It is a wonder that someone did not ask this question of the FBI a lot sooner than just now. Republican Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley posed this question to FBI Director Christopher Wray. Senator Grassley wants to know if the FBI gave a defensive briefing to the Trump campaign regarding their investigation of campaign manager Paul Manafort and his Russian connection. It is common for the FBI to give such briefings. Interestingly, the John McCain campaign received a briefing way back when and it was also about Paul Manafort. Why was there a different standard applied to Donald Trump? Did someone prevent Mr. Trump from being forewarned about a possible Russian collusion within his own staff? Hopefully, this story will develop and the mainstream media may have to pick this up and report it.
As Written By Chuck Ross for the Daily Caller:
A Republican senator wants to know whether the FBI warned the Trump campaign about Russian attempts to infiltrate the campaign.
Bombshell revelations this week about former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort are what prompted the inquiry, made by the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley to FBI Director Christopher Wray.
In a letter to Wray, Grassley asks whether the FBI ever provided a “defensive briefing” or any other warnings about “attempts to infiltrate the campaign by people connected with, or compromised by, Russian intelligence.”
“Such a briefing allows innocent, unwitting organizations and individuals to take defensive action to protect themselves,” Grassley wrote to Wray.
