Democratic Senator Chris Coons (DE) told Fox News’ Chris Wallace that he knows of no direct evidence of a connection between Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
“I have no hard evidence of collusion,” he told Fox News this Sunday. This is interesting considering his reference to “Russia’s intrusion into our election,” during an interview with NPR’s David Greene on Friday.
Obama-era National Security Director James Clapper also admitted there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
“We did not include any evidence in our report…that had any reflection of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians,” he told NBC’s Chuck Todd. “There was no evidence of that included in our report.”
When asked if evidence exists, Clapper replied, “Not to my knowledge.”
As PB has suggested many times, the Trump-Russia connection is a witch hunt invented by the Hillary Clinton campaign to injure Trump and to save the Democratic Party.
It obviously didn’t work, but rumors about Trump and Russia have already forced the president to fire former national security adviser Michael Flynn and have pressured Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from any investigations related to Trump’s presidential campaign.
Author’s Note: Our perspective here is that Democrats like Coons and Clapper are quick to accuse the Trump campaign of conspiring with Russia – but when pinned down they admit there is no real evidence.
Editor’s Note: Should we say this agaiin? Its a smokescreen, always has been.
