Trump Russian Connection: No Proof

This is the definition of a political hit piece.

From The Daily Wire:
After having taken their first Trump administration scalp — reportedly with the help of "Obama loyalists" within the intelligence community — an emboldened establishment media is rabid for more Trump blood. In a lengthy hit piece published Tuesday scandalously titled "Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence," the New York Times cites more leaked intelligence information targeting Team Trump that shows "repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials" in the year before the election. The implied allegation is obvious: Trump colluded with the Russians to take down Clinton and thus steal the presidency.

There's only one problem: by the third paragraph of the 1300-word article, the Times admits that its sources "said that, so far, they had seen no evidence of such cooperation." In other words, the Grey Lady acknowledges that there's "no evidence" for any collusion with the Russians regarding the election, the essential premise of the piece.

With seven investigations, 13 hearings, 50 briefings, and 25,000 pages of documents released on Hilary Clinton's role in Benghazi (none of which found anything), it seems like maybe there should be one or two investigations into whether anyone in Trump's campaign committed Treason.
