No Evidence Of Collusion Between Trump And Russia

Asked by Fox News host Chris Wallace about any evidence between “Trump world” and Russia on Sunday, House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R. CA) said:

“I’ll give you a very simple answer: no,” adding he’s “up to speed on everything. No evidence of collusion” was found between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

On March 8, said “(i)ntelligence sources say that the FBI investigated a computer tied to Donald Trump’s business but there’s no evidence to date that would warrant criminal charges against any of the president’s associates.”

“(M)onths-long FBI counterintelligence investigation” found no evidence of improper ties between Trump and/or his associates and Russia – no illegal contacts, financial transactions or encrypted communications. Nothing!

An unnamed US official was quoted, saying “I’ve never seen a case so misrepresented and leaks so damaging to a process that was meant to be conducted in secret.”

On Monday, FBI director James Comey and NSA head Mike Rogers will testify before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on alleged Russian US election hacking during the 2015-16 presidential campaign, along with allegations of Trump ties to Russia.

No evidence proves baseless claims. None was publicly presented. None exists. Yet false accusations persist, a deep state scheme to bash Russia and delegitimize Trump, wanting him undermined for the wrong reasons, likely aiming to remove him from office by impeachment, conviction, resignation or more sinister means.

DNC emails were leaked, not hacked, discussed in previous articles, including a Sputnik News interview with former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray.

He explained claims about Russian US election hacking were fabricated.

“The source of these emails and leaks has nothing to do with Russia at all,” he said.

“I discovered what the source was when I attended the Sam Adam‘s whistleblower award in Washington,” he explained. “The source of these emails comes from within official circles in Washington DC. You should look to Washington not to Moscow.”

“WikiLeaks has never published any material received from the Russian government or from any proxy of the Russian government. It’s simply a completely untrue claim designed to divert attention from the content of the material.”

Misinformation and Big Lies repeated enough get most people to believe them. A GenForward poll published Friday showed over half of respondents aged 18 – 30 consider Trump illegitimate.

Only 22% approve of him, 62% disapprove. A new Gallup poll showed his approval at 37%, his lowest showing since taking office.

He entered office with a 45% approval rating. Relentless bashing took its toll. His disturbing agenda so far makes it hard to win support.

He warrants criticism for the right reasons, not the wrong ones, not for any improper relations with Russia. Nothing suggests any exist.
