The narrative that President Donald Trump has questionable ties to Russia persists, even though evidence of collusion has yet to come to light and probably won’t.
Are any Democratic lawmakers starting to fear that they’re not going to find that evidence? The intelligence community is presumably always watching the Russian government as closely as they can. The FBI counterintelligence guys presumably track Russian agents on our soil as much as possible. You figure the NSA can track just about any electronic communication between Russians and figures in the Trump campaign. If there was something sinister and illegal going on between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, the U.S. government as a whole had every incentive in the world to expose that as quickly as possible.
They didn’t expose it before Election Day, they didn’t expose it before the Electoral College voted, they didn’t expose it before Inauguration Day … How many months have the best investigators in the United States been digging into this?
The establishment media has repeatedly highlighted the president’s inexperience and incompetence, yet he has somehow been able to hide deep political orchestrations with Russia, a clear U.S. rival, from America’s most advanced surveillance apparatus on the planet.
Reuters reported Thursday that members of the Trump campaign had 18 undisclosed exchanges with Russian officials, and while it is troubling that those interactions were not disclosed, Reuters introduced that there is “no evidence of wrongdoing or collusion between the campaign and Russia.”
The report followed the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a Department of Justice special counsel to oversee the investigation into any possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
