🔥In Jul/Aug'16, FBI warned Trump👉🏼foreign adversaries, incl #Russia🇷🇺, would try to spy on/infiltrate his campaign.🤔

By then, *at least 7 Trump campaign aides* had been in contact w/Russians or ppl linked to Russia👉🏼NEVER reported it to FBI‼️ 1/…
*After the FBI warning*, Trump Jr exchanged Twitter messages in Sept w/Wikileaks, which USIC publicly accused in Oct of acting as an agent in #Russia's🇷🇺covert operation to interfere in the election.🤨 2/
Meantime, Jeff Sessions, who was running Team🇷🇺Trump's foreign policy op, met w/#Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in his Senate office👉🏼FAILED to disclose during his confirmation hearing or on his SF-86 (a *felony*). 3/
🔥Fmr FBI counterintel agent: "If we're telling these guys stuff and they are not acting on it, then we're going to keep that as EVIDENCE." 4/

Frank Figliuzzi (fmr head of FBI counterintel) said counterintel briefings "provide an opportunity for investigative subjects to be transparent w/the bureau & to come back if such contacts are occurring because of admonishments by the bureau."🤔 5/
💣If they fail to do notify FBI, fmr FBI CI head says, "a couple of factors could be at play: They didn't spread the message to the rest of the team or there is some form of GUILTY conscience that prohibits them." 🤫 6/


The Trump team had contacts w/#Russians🇷🇺throughout the campaign and NEVER reported them to FBI, *despite being specifically warned* that Russia was trying to infiltrate & spy on the campaign‼️ 7/
In May'16: Jr met at an NRA dinner w/a #Russian🇷🇺banker close to Putin who'd previously contacted the campaign saying he wanted to *pass on a message from Putin to Trump.

Did anyone alert the FBI⁉️

Nope.🙄 8/
Also in May'16, PapaD told Trump, Sessions & other top campaign brass that he had connections w/people who could facilitate a meeting btwn Trump & Putin.🤔

Did anyone alert the FBI⁉️

Nope.🙄 9/
In Jun'16, Jr, Manafort & KUSH held the #RussianLawyer🇷🇺meeting w/the Kremlin-connected lawyer, a "former" Russian spy & an alleged Russian money launderer to discuss #sanctions & Clinton kompromat.

Did anyone alert the FBI⁉️

Nope.🙄 10/
Jul'16, Manafort emailed his business partner, who "just happens" to be another "former" #Russian spy👉🏼offered private briefings on Trump campaign to Oleg Deripaska, a Russian🇷🇺oligarch close to Putin.🙄 11/
*After Trump took office*, senior FBI counterintel agents met w/Hope Hicks in the WH Situation Room at least twice to WARN her of suspicious emails from #Russians who had contacted her.🤨

Despite warnings & public scrutiny, NO ONE on Team🇷🇺Trump ever alerted the FBI‼️ 12/
NO WAY Trump, his spawn, or his minions can claim "ignorance" over the NUMEROUS #Russian🇷🇺contacts.

They were REPEATEDLY warned. Not only did they NEVER alert the FBI, they LIED on #NatSec clearance forms, LIED in confirmation hearings & LIED to FBI & Mueller‼️

PS: many thanks to my wonderful friend @ChristynRoyce for alerting me to this important story‼️🤗
