New York Times admits it quashed Trump - Russia story that the FBI asked it not to publish

In a stunning revelation today, the Public Editor of the New York Times has announced that her newspaper held off from publishing a story during the election season about Donald Trump’s secret ties to Russia, after the FBI discouraged publication. She’s acknowledging that the story could have “upended” the presidential election between Trump and Hillary Clinton, and she’s criticizing her own newspaper for having been too “timid” in pulling its punches.

Than they would have with 4 years of boring Hillary.

The news media only makes money in times of tradegy, scandal, etc. Why else would they do this and then immediately install 5 new investigative reporters in Washington the day of the inauguration?? This is all about them selling papers, winning Pulitzers, and national recognition like the guys who investigated Watergate.

61. "The FBI is Trumpland"

(From November 3, 2016)
"The FBI is Trumpland': Anti-Clinton atmosphere spurred leaks, sources say"

Deep antipathy to Hillary Clinton exists within the FBI, multiple bureau sources have told The Guardian, spurring a rapid series of leaks damaging to her campaign just days before the election.
Current and former FBI officials, none of whom were willing or cleared to speak on the record, have described a chaotic internal climate that resulted from outrage over Director Comey's July decision not to recommend an indictment over Clinton's maintenance of a private email server on which classified information transited.
"The FBI is Trumpland," said one current agent.

NY Times was always false equivalence with Hillary hate. Even Forbes as had good stuff on Russian Trump ties. So has WSJ. NY Times is so overrated-I agree with Trump on something hell has frozen-also people pointed out he doesn't go after the ones that really hurt him the most in his tweets. Interesting no?
