When we first heard the #TrumpRussia story, we weren’t sure if it was true.
Then, Trump made a series of comments that were contradicted by the information we had at the time.
And while we have a good grasp of the facts at hand, we don’t know how much of the truth is true and how much is fake.
For instance, Trump was not at all clear that Russia was behind the DNC hack.
And as the investigation has progressed, it’s become clear that Trump’s version of events is false.
It’s not just a conspiracy theory.
It may be a lie.
But it is a lie because it’s not accurate.
It is a hoax.
And it’s a dangerous lie.
It has made Trump look bad and is now being used to advance a political agenda.
The White House didn’t deny the existence of the fake Russian story, and White House spokesman Sean Spicer insisted that “any suggestion that the President of the United States or anyone in his administration or any other government has been the subject of an investigation by any foreign government or group is a complete and total fabrication.”
The fact is, there was never a probe of President Trump.
That’s what we’ve been told.
But that doesn’t make it true.
We’ll look into it further when we get more information.
If you are a reporter who’s looking for a scoop on the Trump-Russia scandal, we invite you to follow our coverage here.
The problem is, the White House has already begun to spin the story.
On Tuesday, Spicer told reporters that “we have information that suggests there is an ongoing investigation by the Russian government.”
That’s not true.
The FBI has already opened a criminal investigation into the matter.
It was announced this week that the Justice Department is looking into whether Trump obstructed justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey.
The investigation, led by former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, has reportedly focused on whether Trump sought to impede the investigation.
And the White Houses claim that Trump tried to obstruct justice by trying to influence Comey to drop his investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn is false and contradicted by other sources.
Spicer has made it clear that he believes Trump obdid.
Trump’s former White House counsel Ty Cobb has also called on Trump to testify in the Mueller probe.
And on Wednesday, the president said he had no plans to speak with the Mueller team.
That is a stunning move for a president who has publicly said he would like to testify before the special counsel, even if it means that his lawyers could not use that privilege to compel Trump to cooperate.
The fact that Trump would turn to the Russia investigation in the midst of a political campaign and during a crisis that has the potential to destabilize the world and destroy his presidency is a sign that the president doesn’t believe he has a moral high ground on the issue.
And that, of course, isn’t what happened.
It also doesn’t mean that Trump is lying or misleading.
He’s just playing politics, just like he did with the Clinton email story and the DNC hacks.
It doesn’t change the fact that he lied repeatedly about his own involvement in Russia and about the Russian investigation.
But the Russia story is one of the most important stories of our time.
We don’t yet know the full extent of the Russia investigations, and it will take a lot more time to get to the bottom of it.
That said, we do know that Trump lied in ways that are damaging to his presidency and his country, and he should not be trusted with the most sensitive secrets in the world.
It appears that the White Congress will take its cues from the Trump White House on how to spin this story.
If Trump is willing to tell the truth about what happened, and that’s what the president believes, the American people will trust him.
But if he is not, we have to ask ourselves: How far should we go before we trust the president?
