Was there evidence? Wasn't the president responsible to address the issue if there were? It was done through the courts, no? But, let's just say that it was nastiest thing a president ever did. However, it's also true that there were plenty of connections to Russia and Russian representatives made by members or future members of team Trump. It would be a crime not to investigate deeper. Maybe this will be a good chance for that, too.
They did investigate and found:
Agents were examining allegations of computer activity tied to Russia.. Very quickly, they concluded the computer activity in question involved no nefarious contacts, bank transactions or encrypted communications with the Russians, and likely involved routine computer signals.
The towers are home to Trump’s business, personal residence and then-campaign headquarters.
Director James Comey even took the step of asking Justice to knock down the claim. While the computer server was investigted, Trump’s phones and emails were never wiretapped, officials said.
Comey’s request was designed to combat any insinuation that the FBI was used by the Obama administration as a political-enemy intelligence gathering agency in the midst of the election.
But inside the intelligence community it also conveyed another powerful message: Comey has always insisted the bureau won’t comment on ongoing probes. So his willingness to push out a comment was a sign the FBI doesn’t see a criminal case emerging so far.
