As allegations about Trump and Russia proliferate, so do investigations

WASHINGTON ó Allegations that President Trumpís campaign may have colluded with Russia to disrupt the 2016 campaign have produced such an ever-expanding list of investigations that even those leading them are having trouble keeping track of who should be doing what.

No fewer than five probes are under way, examining aspects of the Russia scandal from possible ties between Trump associates and the Kremlin to the presidentís stunning firing of the FBI director at a time the agency was conducting a criminal investigation into the matter.

That Justice Department probe is still underway, and the reins were handed over last week to former FBI director Robert Mueller, who was appointed as special counsel. Then there are four congressional committees conducting investigations, two per chamber, with separate but overlapping jurisdictional powers.

And there could be more.

1. The Twitter #TrumpBots are very busy saying no to Trump collusion today.


They are out in droves pushing the narrative. They don't mention that Trump's obstruction of justice isn't necessary if there was no criminal activity.
