The FBI warned Trump about the possibilities of Russian attempts to compromise the campaign [Video]

It would seem to be a foregone conclusion that the FBI warned Donald Trump and his campaign staff about the possibilities of Russian attempts to compromise the campaign. It is a standard briefing and is given to all the final candidates as they begin the run up to the election. 

At the same time that the FBI was delivering the standard warning, however, the FBI was aware that some of the Trump staff had already made some contacts with Russians. Was this a setup? Why was Donald Trump not told about the concerns of the FBI? Is this the insurance that FBI Agent Peter Strzok was texting about? this deserves a deeper look.

The warning came in the form of a high-level counterintelligence briefing by senior FBI officials, the officials said. A similar briefing was given to Hillary Clinton, they added. They said the briefings, which are commonly provided to presidential nominees, were designed to educate the candidates and their top aides about potential threats from foreign spies.

The candidates were urged to alert the FBI about any suspicious overtures to their campaigns, the officials said.

The Clinton campaign didn’t respond to a request for comment.

The briefings were led by counterintelligence specialists from the FBI, the sources said. They were timed to occur around the period when the candidates began receiving classified intelligence, the officials said, which put them at greater risk for being targeted by foreign spies. Trump’s first intelligence briefing as Republican nominee was Aug. 17, 2016, sources told NBC News at the time.
