FBI Sent *How Many* Spies?

"There is no such thing as co-incidence."  That's a truism voiced by Jack Ryan, the hero in Tom Clancy's books.  It's also germane in Spygate.

WaPo reports that a Russki who uses a couple of different names approached Roger Stone--a Trump ally--offering 'dirt' on the Hildebeeste for $2 million.  Stone blew the guy off.

Hmmm.  Later in the story we see this:

...Stone and Caputo’s interactions with Greenberg mean that at least 11 Trump associates or campaign officials have acknowledged interactions with a Russian during the election season or presidential transition. Those interactions have become public in the year and a half since a Trump spokeswoman said that no one associated with the campaign had communications with Russians or other foreign entities....

Based on what the FBI and DOJ say (which is often false or misleading) many of these contacts occurred a few months before the FBI officially launched Spygate.  There's no reason to believe the FBI's version, of course. 

So it's not just onesey-twosey here.  It's eleven-sey and counting.

That's not co-incidence.  That's exactly what Trump says it is:  Spygate.
