Although it is legally permissible for the FBI to use informants in its investigations, special care is taken to carefully evaluate and closely supervise their use so the rights of individuals under investigation are not infringed.

Trump must be mistaking informant for a leaker in his camp

but if a former British intelligence officer could find this stuff out, I am sure the American intelligence could also or been aware of these allegations.

Trump should be say Thanks to the FBI for not releasing negative information days before the election like they did with HIllary.

But that is Trump, he likes to thank himself or have others thank him for being large and in charge.

I could see why they kept it quiet as it was after all just unsustantiated allegations at that point in time.

It is a thankless job

Obvious the FBI took it serious and Mueller took it serious, and in the following investigations they have 5 people who have admitted wrong doing. At least 19 people or companies indicted.

The only one who is not taking it serious is Trump who seem to can't shut up.

Mueller is a man. He is a manly man. School shootings are local affairs. Mueller casts the shadow of a giant and his interaction in the affairs of families would likely crush the young ones. The American people must beg him to intervene or his deeds would be misunderstood.

Clearly, the Obama-Clinton regime of reckless lawlessness and America haters used FBI loser Comey as their tool as they were Ďfeeling freeí to use the third world African spying ideology of anarchy on the enemies of the regime in effort to defeat them while they do not know that they are being spied on. What a despicable shameless bunch of liberal Democrat scammers and terrible America hating liars who seek the demise of America because that is what Hillary Clinton asked them to do. Undoubtedly, liberal Democrats and their corrupt media led by the NY times are fishing in mud water puddles trying to undermine and topple President Trump by all deceitful criminal means which will fail and illustrate their liberal ugly faces. The Department of Injustice called DOJ is ruled by the deep state coup leader Rod Rosenstein who is hiding or erasing critical paragraphs from documents which would have proven the lawless traitorous actions of the Rosenstein, Comey, Mueller, Clinton, McCabe, Strzok, Brennan, Clapper against the American people. Jeff Sessions proved to be senile brain-dead incompetent loser who is afraid to say a word to Rosenstein while America is falling to anarchy with dysfunctional DOJ and FBI which became the political tool for Hillary to create more crimes and break more laws for protecting her Clinton Bribe Foundation which accumulated more than 2 billion dollars from the Iranian and Russian regimes among others for selling out our Uranium for the Iranian nukes that threaten the Middle east and America. Enough is enough with the trashing of US Constitution by Rod Rosenstein who became the guard of the liberal Democratic Party deep state who seek coup and civil war that will destroy America. Rosenstein and Session must be impeached for their fight against US Congress and hiding documents from US Congress for more than two years.

Explain how Trump could "deal" with it. He is not a teacher, school administrator, the parents or a member of law enforcement that fails to deal with these troubled individuals. That is where the failure to protect against such tragedies occurs, not in the White House and not at the NRA.

You know what armed him in the first place and made his rampage possible?

Guns!

America is awash in them, and they facilitate these bloody rampages. Grab a brain and do the research, like these kids from MSD have done, then vote accordingly. It is up to the Federal Government to stop being puppeteered by the NRA and act like a leader on this.

Wow, ok, so then why did Trump hold a listening session with the Parkland survivors?

Why did Trump suggest some possible changes to laws?

Why did Trump say he wasnít afraid of the NRA and that he could work with them to come up with a plan?

And then suddenly Trump backs away from all that.

So you know what, Trump should say it just as you did, he will not do anything. And he should save his useless tweets of concern for his cronies when they lose a few bucks in a market dive.

The only thing worse than a president who does nothing, is one that pretends to care, leads everyone down a path and then chumps out.

At least Obama got congress to vote after Sandy Hook. At least we knew from that who gave a ratís @ss and who didnít.

Trump isnít going to lead on anything unless it lines his and his cronies pockets with more money so that they can seclude themselves in golden towers away from the rest of the gun toting maniacs they helped to arm.

It was a simple question why can't you answer it? The rant about the NRA does not change the fact that there is nothing Trump or Obama can do. Obama never got Congress to vote on anything that could have prevented this or any other school shooting.

I shouldn't say there is "nothing they can do" I should say that there is no quick fix like banning guns or changing any gun law. It is being reported that there were explosive devices found also. As far as I know they are illegal yet the two attackers had them.
Every one of these school attacks has been a dark comedy of errors where obvious warning signs were missed and more often ignored. Rather than examining and learning from the events and the mistakes the attention is on changing laws that will have absolutely no affect on the problem.

Trump is useless on this because the NRA owns him. The solution is obvious, just look at the dozens of Western democracies with far, far lower rates of gun violence. How do they do it? Gun control.

The last one was a shotgun, not one of those scary looking .22 cal rifles. So what you want to ban now.
