‘No evidence of collusion’ between Trump campaign, Russia


March 19, 2017

The chairman of a US congressional committee on intelligence said Sunday that he has seen  “no evidence” that President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia during the runup to the 2016 election.

Based on “everything I have up to this morning — no evidence of collusion,” said US Representative Devin Nunes, head of the House Intelligence Committee, speaking to the Fox News Sunday television program.

He made his remarks one day before FBI director James Comey is due to appear before his panel, facing lawmakers seeking answers about Trump’s potential Russia ties and the president’s extraordinary accusation of wiretapping by his predecessor.

    The FBI could not be stating “unequivocally” that the Trump campaign and the Russians did not collude unless the FBI DID wiretap the Trump campaign.
    You say the FBI taps the russkies? But the russkies could have used burner phones ….. they would HAVE to have tapped the Trump phones. Wikileaks “Vault 7” document release earlier in the month made it clear that US intel has the ability to cover and confuse the tracks of any entity —including especially US intel itself — that ventures to penetrate any supposedly private or secure realm. And, by the way, that probably settles the matter of who “they” are. Whatever statutory restraints once existed against CIA spying on American citizens is long gone by the boards.
