Trump takes heat for saying FBI missed shooter warnings because of Russia

President Trump is facing backlash Sunday for suggesting the FBI missed warnings about the Florida school shooter because it was too busy focusing on possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

Republican Gov. John Kasich of Ohio, who has often been a vocal critic of the president, said it was an “absurd statement” during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

And former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper dismissed the president’s suggestion, saying the revelation the FBI missed several warnings about the shooter revealed the tremendous stress and pressure law enforcement officials face.

“That’s at best, I think, disingenuous,” Mr. Clapper told CNN of Trump’s comment.

    What exactly did he say that was wrong? Did the FBI Field office get warned about the possibility of this person doing harm to others and miss it? Yes they did, twice. Did Police also miss the signs? Yes. Was his behavior reported by neighbors, friends and family? Again yes, and sadly missed or ignored. Has the FBI spent the last year trying to confirm collusion? Yes. Has it been proved there was no collusion? The Mueller report stated that no American knowingly worked with the Russians, so again YES. (You MUST show intent to prove collusion) Yet, are the Democrats STILL pushing this bogus investigation and false narrative of collusion, forcing the FBI to divert finite resources to continue looking? YES. So why is no one calling out Schumer, Durbin, Pelosi, Hoyer or the rest for their actions? same reason as the rest of this: Politics. Politicians are like diapers: both need to be changed often and for the same reason.
