After reading the article, it seems that the feds were hugely wary about potential fallout :

Crossfire Hurricane began exactly 100 days before the presidential election, but if agents were eager to investigate Mr. Trump’s campaign, as the president has suggested, the messages do not reveal it.

“I cannot believe we are seriously looking at these allegations and the pervasive connections,” Mr. Strzok wrote soon after returning from London.

The mood in early meetings was anxious, former officials recalled. Agents had just closed the Clinton investigation, and they braced for months of Republican-led hearings over why she was not charged.

Crossfire Hurricane was built around the same core of agents and analysts who had investigated Mrs. Clinton. None was eager to re-enter presidential politics, former officials said, especially when agents did not know what would come of the Australian information.

The question they confronted still persists: Was anyone in the Trump campaign tied to Russian efforts to undermine the election?

...snip ..

Mr. Trump was not under investigation, but his actions perplexed the agents.

Days after the stolen Democratic emails became public, he called on Russia to uncover more.
Then news broke that Mr. Trump’s campaign had pushed to change the Republican platform’s stance on Ukraine in ways favorable to Russia.

The F.B.I.’s thinking crystallized by mid-August, after the C.I.A. director at the time, John O. Brennan, shared intelligence with Mr. Comey showing that the Russian government was behind an attack on the 2016 presidential election.

Intelligence agencies began collaborating to investigate that operation. The Crossfire Hurricane team was part of that group but largely operated independently, three officials said.

... snip ..

“There was a growing body of evidence that a foreign government was attempting to interfere in both the process and the debate surrounding our elections, and their job is to investigate counterintelligence,” he said in an interview. “That’s what they did.”

There's much more in the OP article but one of the biggest take-aways, is the that Russia-Trump investigation has much less to do with partisan politics, but is more down to Trump's own, alarming, behaviour as well as that of the idiots that he recruited to team Trump.

Thanks for the post Ante

Funny enough the Stones are playing in England soon and were interviewed and there was a few good quips about Donald

Mick didn’t like him using their song “you can’t always get what you want” and Keith told the story of when Donald promoted them in an Atlantic city gig when the billboard showed DONALD TRUMP PRESENTS in massive letters and the Rolling Stones in tiny text

He said he slammed a knife he has into a table when talking to band members and told them “get rid of him”

He then said to the radio 4 interviewer it’s time for America to get rid of him

BTW the cult have killed this site it will end up stormfront lite GLP, crazy echo chamber that doesn’t reflect real world reality
