Reminder: Trump came into office KNOWING his campaign team...and then his transition team...was being spied on & that fraudulent info had been used/leaked to start a counterintelligence operation against him that would continue once he took office.
There's a popular narrative that Trump was clueless about this before he was inaugurated & then it took months for him to wake up and realize what the plotters were doing.

He *himself* makes statements & has used his Twitter to sell this narrative.

"Wow! I just found out...!"
That narrative that Trump came into office unaware and only slowly realized what was going on is USEFUL to him. It helps give the plotters and their media allies the impression Trump doesn't know a whole lot, so for around 6-9 months they thought they were playing him right.
Sun Tzu's 'The Art Of War' talks about knowing yourself and knowing your enemy. If you know your enemy, how he will engage you, how he likes to attack you, then you can prepare traps and countermeasures that he can't see until it's too late.
It only LOOKS as if you and your forces are being passive because all the enemy sees is what they expect to see. The enemy moves with confidence against you because they believe the tactics you anticipated are going to work.
Until you are ready, you can't do anything that would tip the enemy off about the traps you've laid, the spies you've sent, your advance knowledge of their strategy and how you've spotted/turned/flipped some of their own spies.
If Trump came into office knowing all during his campaign & transition period that Hillary/Obama partisans embedded inside the federal LEO/IC agencies were spying on him & plotting against him, and that plot would only increase after he assumed office, what does he do?
I think Trump would FULLY BRIEF people on the threat & make sure they were FULLY READ IN to the counter strategy about the COUNTERINTELLIGENCE OPERATION that would have to be launched immediately upon his taking command.
Especially the people he was about to appoint to head those selfsame LEO/IC agencies from within which the plotters were operating. The new Attorney General and the new CIA director would have to be FULLY READ INTO to the plot and the counterintelligence strategy.
When NSA head Adm. Mike Rogers went to Trump Tower a week after the election to meet with Trump & his transition team, it was covered in the media as if Rogers went there to 'beg for his job'.

That's not what happened. Rogers went there to share information with Trump about the specifics of the spying on his team's electronic communications [EC's] & other details of how transition team was being spied on & plotted against.
The *result* of the Trump Tower meeting with Rogers is that Trump *immediately* announced he was moving his transition team from NYC to Bedminster New Jersey.

It was there in Beminster, right after being given specific information about the spying on his transition team's EC's & details about how federal LEO/IC agencies were being used against him, that Trump announced his picks for Attorney General and CIA Director.
They knew everything from the start.

They were FULLY READ IN to the threat and help FORMULATE the counterintelligence response to that threat.
So just keep this in mind as TV talking heads keep shrieking at you about the mortal danger Trump is in from Mueller & Co.
