 Instead, the FBI & Justice should be investigating the terrorists, anarchists, and agitators of ANTIFA

The FBI investigates any serious security threat and criminal activity it deems worthy of investigation and under its jurisdiction. That includes leftist groups. Unfortunately for Trump, the vast majority of domestic threats is coming from far-right groups. Complaining on Twitter and firing Wray isn't going to change that fact.

To our less ideological more libertarian Trump supporters, is this crap ok?

Does a line exist that he can cross that will cause any of you to say, “this is just too much?”

11 ( +14 / -3 )

yes you are still overreacting. Two stories on this site in one day. it must be desperation time in the election.

This story will change absolutely zero votes.

President loser.

no, a white car can (the Biden supporter) can be seen moving from its center lane into the lane of a black pickup truck, striking it.

At one point, one of the pickup trucks can be seen colliding with an SUV that was driving behind the bus.

-21 ( +4 / -25 )

In videos posted on Twitter, a group of cars and pickup trucks — many adorned with large Trump flags — can be seen riding alongside the campaign bus on Friday, and at times boxing it in, as it traveled from San Antonio to Austin. At one point, one of the pickup trucks can be seen colliding with an SUV that was driving behind the bus.

Waiting to see any evidence at all of wrongdoing. Surely someone, somewhere, has video evidence of it.

"one of the pickup trucks can be seen colliding with an SUV" is a traffic incident.

Which is why Donald XIV tweeted approval of the harassment, and his son Le Dauphin Don Junior encouraged more of it.

the white car was in the lane of the other vehicle, video is there.

He repeatedly demonstrates autocratic intent. You don’t care, because he’s on your side.

the Russian troll farmers, oh, I mean Trump zealots, will be posting soon I imagine... I do not know why the traditionalists of the Republican party Cotten to such types, but wills are weak... it is a shame. The democrats suffer the apologist idiocy... the Republicans have abandoned tradition for corporate and Russian masters... all a shame. Cannot imagine what it is like to wave such banners. The democratic party has become a weak embodiment of democracy and the republicans have become totalitarian commie/christians... ugh.

They can't see reality, asking a Repub what they see is pointless

President Donald Trump on Sunday suggested the FBI should stop investigating an incident in which his supporters were seen surrounding a Biden campaign bus in Texas, which led Democrats to cancel an event there.

Too late for pardons I guess.

The FBI is involved because a Senator was threatened and people don’t take such things lightly in a democracy!!

All these criminals better prepare for long prison sentences.

trump’s not going to have any money to bail them out.

Blacklabel, he’s saying the FBI shouldn’t be looking at a physical act, whatever act you prefer to call it, taken against an official campaign vehicle of his opponent.

im really beginning to question what it actually is that you consider “freedom and democracy.”

16 ( +19 / -3 )

a campaign vehicle? does it have rights?

-22 ( +3 / -25 )

and nothing was done to the "official" vehicle. The vehicle that was hit was the vehicle of a supporter.

That also, as can be seen in the video, was not "travelling behind the bus", the black pickup was directly behind said bus, not the Biden supporter vehicle.

Democrats: Go out and vote.

GOP : Go out and prevent people from voting.

The difference between the parties loud and clear!!

On Sunday night, Trump retweeted a screenshot of the FBI statement, adding: “In my opinion, these patriots did nothing wrong. Instead, the FBI & Justice should be investigating the terrorists, anarchists, and agitators of ANTIFA, who run around burning down our Democrat run cities and hurting our people!”

That is his opinion, and I agree with it. He did not order the FBI to stop anything, he just has a reasonable opinion. Apparently that is terrible in the eyes of the press.

-17 ( +3 / -20 )

a campaign vehicle? does it have rights?

The occupants of the campaign vehicle have the right not to be driven off the road by some aggressive a** hole, yes.

16 ( +19 / -3 )

except that their vehicle is in the lane of the supposedly "aggressive" vehicle.

Do you see that white line on the road, thats what its for. The white vehicle is over the line into the lane of the black pickup.

why?

-17 ( +3 / -20 )

I watched the video numerous times Blacklabel. Let’s just say we don’t see it the same way.

16 ( +19 / -3 )

and everyone on the left is screaming "the bus, the bus". what happened to the bus? was it struck or impeded in any way?

No, it wasnt.

-20 ( +3 / -23 )

So he will remove people (Wray) that don't agree with him? hhmmm OK so what it the difference between him and say Putin, Xi and any other dictator?

14 ( +17 / -3 )

Does a line exist that he can cross that will cause any of you to say, “this is just too much?”

To his supporters, simple answer, no! Trump could shoot someone in cold blood on national TV and his supporters would claim the person deserved it!

15 ( +18 / -3 )

try a picture then. why is the white car so much more to the right than the car in front of it or behind it?

Do you see that white line on the road, thats what its for. The white vehicle is over the line into the lane of the black pickup. 

why?

The driver was distracted.

The driver was experiencing a medical emergency.

There are numerous reasons why the white vehicle crossed the line. It’s rather pointless to speculate.

However, we don’t need to speculate as to the actions of the black vehicle. It clearly rammed the white vehicle, which is not how these types of situations are meant to be handled. The driver of the black vehicle should have slowed or pulled over to avoid the white vehicle. Not only is it common sense, it’s what we are all meant to be taught when we are learning how to drive.

But, meh, white vehicle something.

except that their vehicle is in the lane of the supposedly "aggressive" vehicle.

Oh, I'm sorry. I must have missed the part of the driving test where it explains that if you are driving in the same lane as another vehicle, it acquires the right to run you off the road. Interesting to learn.

It looks to me from this photo that the white vehicle was trying to merge behind the bus and the black vehicle intentionally sped up to try and cut off the white vehicle.

Why was the black vehicle driving unreasonably close to the bus?

10 ( +12 / -2 )

and everyone on the left is screaming "the bus, the bus". what happened to the bus? was it struck or impeded in any way?

No, it wasn't

Yeah it was. The truck in front slowed down, it was boxed in by numerous other trucks and the event it was traveling to had to be cancelled for security reasons. You know that, you saw it, and you are very much deliberately misrepresenting it.

16 ( +17 / -1 )

Fortunately the FBI neither seeks nor needs Trump’s approval in investigating possible criminal activity.

16 ( +19 / -3 )

Of course he, the know-all-con-man opposes this, too!

Everything he doesn't like gets opposed.

And applauding those irresponsible, stupid actions.

He must have had a real bad childhood!

So this is what the US will look like if and I say again IF Trump wins!

Man, get out of the WH, do some more golfing or whatever pleases you ......

...... but stop dividing the USA more and more!

Oh, and by the way, that black "dump truck" was definitely ramming the white SUV!

Yep sounds about right - here are a few others....

Trump opposes FBI probe of Trump Organization for insurance and bank fraud...

Trump opposes FBI probe of Giuliani's unregistered work for a foreign government and illegal campaign contributions....

the irony of this sentence......

-7 ( +2 / -9 )

That also, as can be seen in the video, was not "travelling behind the bus", the black pickup was directly behind said bus, not the Biden supporter vehicle.

As can be seen in the video, the black pick-up edged up behind the bus, forcing the white car partly out of its lane. Then it swerved to the left and hit it in the side.

Very dangerous, reckless driving by both vehicles. Neither should have been travelling so close behind the bus. There was also a vehicle moving very slowly right in front of the bus; if that had caused the bus to brake suddenly, there would have been a major pile-up behind.

This is not how free and fair elections are carried out in any self-respecting developed nation with even half a claim to democratic leanings.

MARA Make America Rational Again

To our less ideological more libertarian Trump supporters, is this crap ok?

No, not at all. But rioting, looting, arson, violence, and even murder in the name of racial justice isn’t either - but the FBI can’t be bothered to investigate that. This incident was rather mild.

-10 ( +5 / -15 )

It will be a miracle if Trump and his thugs don’t steal this election

Of course Trump is against any investigation of thuggery carried out on his behalf. Who can forget what he said about very fine people on both sides when the ku klux clan was on one of those sides? No surprises here.

trump, apparently is building a wall around the WH now, scared of the election results.

That’s one wall he’ll build on time!!!

Well, this is certainly the rant of a mad man. Ridiculous Trump, again and again.

dumb behavior by these zealots made worse by the approving president. I wonder if those thinking this is ok could try to imagine if they were suddenly surrounded by aggressive supporters from another political party while driving down the highway. Would you still be ok with that?

Do you see that white line on the road, thats what its for. The white vehicle is over the line into the lane of the black pickup.

why?''

So you disagree with Trump and think there should be an FBI investigation into the whole incident?

6 ( +7 / -1 )

No, not at all. But rioting, looting, arson, violence, and even murder in the name of racial justice isn’t either - but the FBI can’t be bothered to investigate that.

Agree on the looting and arson.

those were Feds snatching people off the street and stuffing them into rental minivans. Think we can safely assume the FBI is all over this.

that they see right wing extremists as more of an actual threat than lefties does not mean they aren’t investigating the lefties, just that they see the rightists as more dangerous.

Haha, this all ya got, Dems! Thought you guys were gonna win with a Blue Wave or something? What happened to all that cocky bravado that was on display a week ago?

Pretty much, Democrats and liberals scream bloody murder when there’s so much of a whiff of an incident and call for an FBI investigation and a probe to find out what happened, whereas real crimes on the liberals side they keep saying there’s nothing here no scandal and it just goes to show you how one sided politically and flipped around everything has become. If Trump wins, I hope he gets rid of Wray as soon as possible.

Until Antifas and BLM are prosecuted for the burning, the looting, and the actual violence, I think prosecuting the participants of the train would be too much of an obvious double standard.

They sure jumped on a bogus 3 year investigation and impeachment, they certainly jumped on that when everyone else knew it was garbage. But yeah, let’s jump for the one side. Lol

If this was a Trump campaign bus surrounded by Biden supporters impeding the safe progress of the vehicle (unless laws are different in cow country), what would the Boke republicans be crying???

They'd be screaming for the FBI to hunt down the commie extremists for attempting to derail US Freedom.

If you have seen the videos you will know the white car driven by the democrat changed lanes into the path of the black truck so who ran into who?

The Black truck then pushed the white car back into the lane it was travelling in prior to its illegal move.

Seems the white car illegally changed lanes into the black truck, so there fore this article is twisting what actually happened WATCH THE VIDEO !

If Biden gets in America is doomed so is the world.!

Don't listen to the crickets chirping any longer.

No it didnt the white car had moved completely out of the right lane the truck moved up, the white car then tried to move back into the right lane , obviously not paying attention, and found the black truck was now there! That is what happened watch again.

You cant simply twist what happened on multiple video's to suit your opinion, watch again try another video angle.

The US was in a lot better shape 4 years ago. How can anyone think present day America is better than four years ago? Of course Trump and his supporters blame everything on the Dems completely ignoring the fact that they’ve had four years to drive the country into a ditch.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

When you hear Trump say, “the American people,” remember that he means the people who praise him, or who give him parades, which does not even include all Republicans. Maybe these nice people who are being investigated have nice Trump 2020 signs. This indicates that they could not be troublemakers. Some folks just don’t understand this.

If you have seen the videos you will know the white car driven by the democrat changed lanes into the path of the black truck so who ran into who?

In the video I saw both the black pick-up and the white car were way too close to the back end of the bus. They were both driving recklessly.

The Black truck then pushed the white car back into the lane it was travelling

'Pushed' is a euphemism. The pickup swerved into the side of the white car and hit it. Absolutely irresponsible and worthy of a license suspension.
