  • It's a tactic the president has used before, and it works.Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjOPresident Trump calls it calls it “spygate:” the allegation that the FBI and democrats put a spy in his campaign to help Hillary Clinton. It’s not true.Top republicans like Speaker Paul Ryan have even disputed the president. But even though it’s a conspiracy theory, millions of Americans will still believe it. It’s a playbook he has used before. “Spygate” is an attempt to delegitimize the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. If the American people lose trust in them, they won’t believe whatever the investigation finds. It’s working.Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

    As a non-American I've basically relegated the entirety of US politics to be entertainment, and just laugh at it. Every day. Seriously, so much of the stuff that happens even has proper comedic timing, it's that ridiculous

    Do we have a solution for this? Everyone keeps telling us that this is happening, and of course, it is - but no one is offering a solution to combat this besides spreading awareness which as we can see, is apparently not working.

    Why does this remind me so much of propaganda used by Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, and Franco, who are all different yes some are ‘communist’ though communism is a country’s economic standpoint not its government; to fascist. They all did the same thing to gain power; belittling the press, spreading fails accusations, creating false chaos to then step in and look like the “good guy” the “protector of the people”, belittling and the government and the police; making it seem like they themselves are working against him and the people. Literally all he needs now is create his own army, and set up a quo to “relieve the American people of its past failures and set it on the right path to freedom”. Just open a text book, history’s repeating itself, we stand here and say that what happened in Europe, in Germany, Italy, Spain, and Russia could never happen here, but it can because what happened over in Europe isn’t a European thing it’s a human thing. I really don’t care what political party you side with, honestly, but just watch out for traps such as these which lead us all down a dark path, which history has condemned before.

    question to americans: why don’t you have laws saying that high level officials including the president, cannot use social media in any form due to the potential national security issues?
    his social media use is brainwashing (along with fox news) all these isolated, angry and already biased voters and potentially jeopardising national security, and isn’t his main role as president to PROTECT the american people and PRESERVE THE CONSTITUTION?

    Now we can read that Trump and the Trump campaign were spied on in the New York Times.
    We need a correction but it would erase the entire clip. Let's keep it as is, as a reminder of past follies and tragedies.

    It wasnt a spy. It was a person employed by a government or other organization to secretly obtain information on an enemy or competitor
