The FBI Isn’t Investigating Clinton Campaign Ties with Russia, Despite Connection

Top Russian officials have admitted to having contact with the people advising the Clinton campaign, so why isn’t the FBI investigating them?

On Monday, FBI Director James Comey confirmed that the FBI is actively investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and any involvement that President Trump’s campaign may have had in this matter, though it does not appear they are investigating Hillary Clinton’s campaign and any possible link it may have had with Russia.

Comey explained the scope of the investigation “includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts.”

Comey makes no mention of Hillary Clinton or her campaign, though they might want to.

Last week, Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for Russian President Vladimir, told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria that Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak met with people that were advising Clinton during her 2016 presidential campaign in a similar fashion as those advising Trump’s campaign.

It would seem that if the FBI is investigating Trump’s campaign and possible links it might have with Russia, they would want to do the same for Clinton’s campaign, which top Russian officials have acknowledged they were in contact with as well.
