Russia-Trump Campaign Collusion Narrative Disintegrating

In his “Meet the Press” interview on Sunday, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper reaffirmed the conclusion reached in a report regarding Russian influence on the presidential election, prepared during his watch by the intelligence services and the FBI. They concluded that there was no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump or his campaign and the Russian government to influence the presidential election in President Trump’s favor. Mr. Clapper said: “We did not include any evidence in our report, and I say, ‘our,’ that’s N.S.A., F.B.I. and C.I.A., with my office, the Director of National Intelligence, that had anything, that had any reflection of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians. There was no evidence of that included in our report.”

      Should Jeff Sessions leave, McCarthy would be my candidate to succeed him as attorney general.

    The whole Russia story was invented by the Clinton pedo machine to distract us from noticing their myriad crimes. I can’t believe it’s gained so much traction, but then again, the entire mainstream media is carrying water for the Democrats.
