No Evidence of Trump/Russia Collusion, but MSM Still True Believer

Meanwhile, newly obtained FBI emails show an attempted quid pro quo to go easy on Hillary Clinton.

“If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don’t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia,” Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) stated recently. And it appears that is exactly what the Senate Intelligence Committee will do. Burr added on Tuesday, “There is no factual evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.”

So, after two years of an investigation that was instigated by Hillary Clinton’s opposition-research smear, the Senate has concluded — as President Donald Trump has steadfastly insisted the entire time and as the House concluded last year — there was no collusion.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media has ignored newly released FBI emails obtained via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that reveal former FBI Director James Comey sought to work a quid pro quo deal with Barack Obama’s State Department in exchange for going easy on Hillary Clinton with her private email server.

Back in October 2016, Fox News first reported the allegations of a quid pro quo deal, which former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) called at the time “a flashing red light of potential criminality.” He further explained, “In return for altering the classification, the possibility of additional slots for the FBI at missions overseas was discussed.” It’s now clear that individuals within the FBI, including former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, were involved in discussing a quid pro quo arrangement, though there is no indication it was ever implemented.

On top of this comes Tuesday’s revelation that the Federal Election Committee (FEC) has refused to investigate allegations of Clinton’s campaign-money laundering scheme. The Federalist’s Margot Cleveland explains, “[The] complaint charged that, during the 2016 presidential election, Democrats illegally funneled approximately $84 million through the Hillary Victory Fund to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which then illegally coordinated with the Hillary Clinton campaign.” Nothing to see here; move along, says the FEC.

Once again, with all the thick, steady smoke emanating from Clinton and the DNC, it’s almost laughable the lengths to which the MSM goes in ignoring or outright denying that there is any scandal there, while at the same time fixating on a fictional Trump/Russia collusion conspiracy that has yet to produce one iota of actual evidence.
