Top Democrats and mainstream media go all-in on evidence-free Russia narrative

Democrat politicians like Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), Reps. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), and Adam Schiff (D-CA) along with outlets like the New York Times are all convinced (and doing their best to convince the American people) that there was collusion between Trump campaign officials and Russia.

After former CIA director John Brennan’s testimony, the voices spreading this narrative picked up the pace.

But there’s one major problem with all of this talk about collusion with Russia…

There’s not a single shred of evidence to back any of it up.

Still, one would have to be a thorough reader of the news to pick up on that, as the Daily Caller points out:

A buried explanatory paragraph that deflates the lead is a constant in report after report on the Russia collusion narrative.

When The New York Times first reported the FBI was investigating collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, it was not until the tenth paragraph readers were informed of an important fact: “American officials have said that they have so far found no proof of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.”
[….] Some months later Reuters dropped an important sounding report on some of those contacts. Six paragraphs into the report on “18 undisclosed contacts” between Trump associates and Russian officials, the reader learns that those who familiar with the conversations see “no evidence of wrongdoing or collusion between the campaign and Russia.”

The New York Times pumped out another “collusion” story Wednesday with another buried caveat, this time on “mounting concern” among U.S. officials “revealed” by former CIA director John Brennan in a big bad congressional hearing. Six paragraphs in: “Mr. Brennan acknowledged that he did not know whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian operatives and said the contacts might have been benign.” [emphasis added]

Explosive headlines. Deflating facts.

As John Adams said in his defense of British soldiers involved in the Boston Massacre:

Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence…

Perhaps our media and the Democrats should take note.

  1. And the funniest aspect of the entire narrative from the left is that they are desperately looking for something, “collusion,” that is NOT a crime!

  2. The total LACK of CONSCIENCE, & basic MORALITY by the public majority of the Democrats is appalling. Their ARROGANCE & total disregard for the truth IS SICKENING!
    GOD’S WORD HAS A LOT TO SAY ABOUT THESE KIND OF PEOPLE. ONE SUCH TRUTH IS; ‘THE ARROGANT & HAUGHTY WILL BE BTOUGHT DOWN”!

  3. When are they going to start giving the facts about the Democrats?? The fact that Hillary sold the Russians 20% of our Uranium, for a hefty donation to her slush fund Foundation!! The fact that the Podesta brothers have a business in Russia, and that John was given a $75,000 check from the Russians, and not only didn’t disclose the fact on his tax returns, but he didn’t disclose it on the paperwork needed to work in the White House, but on the paperwork needed to work on Hillary’s Election Campaign!! Not only are these criminal offenses, but they are punishable by law!! I know that it’s currently a two-tier law system, but I didn’t know that it applied to people who are close to the Clinton’s as well!! I’m still waiting for the shoe to drop, too!!

  4. 1) Trump was elected thanks to the Russian Marxists;
    2) Back in 1939 Churchill was elected thanks to Hitler’s Nazi influence;
    …please contribute more similar idiotic statements…

  5. THERE HAS NOT BEEN A SHREAD OF EVIDENCE TO PROVE ANY OF THIS. DEMOCRATS GIVE US THE PROOF THAT YOU SAY YOU HAVE OR TOLD. ONLY WAS HEAR SAY AND YOU CREATED IT YOURSELVES. FAKE NEWS AND FAKE REPORTS THAT YOU MADE UP AND ALWAYS SOMEONE TOLD YOU SO. YOU LOST AND GET USED TO IT. TRUMP FOR 8 YEARS. DEMS….SIT BACK AND ENJOY ALL THAT OBAMA GAVE YOU AND WAS FAKE.

HE IS IN FANTACY LAND AND IN LOVE WITH HIMSELF ONLY. HE SURE HAD YOU FOOLED AND NOW YOU ARE FOOLING YOURSELVES WITH FAKE NEWS YOU MAKE UP AND TELL IT SO MUCH THAT YOU START TO BELIEVE IT. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE NOT DUMB. THE DEMS THAT GIVE OUT ALL THIS FAKE NEWS AND MADE UP STORIES ARE THE FAKES. GET OFF IT AND WHaT HAVE YOU DONE FOR THE COUNTRY …..ANY DEMOCRAT SINCE THE FIRST OF YEAR. NOTHING NOTHING. JUST FAKE NEWS AND YOUR FANTASY LAND. WHAT A JOKE YOU ARE TO OUR GREAT USA.

  6. These Democrat Congressmen who think “it’s just politics” to advance a false investigation and narrative of national security with absolutely NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT ANY OF IT – need to be prosecuted. They are indeed VERY SORE LOSERS. Except with this activity they are abusing their authority and need to be busted in the nose for it. There may be a lot of people indicted and going to jail before this is all over – the American people can’t stand for this.

  7. Enough is enough, Very sore LOSERS.

    Let’s fix our nation by working together using the Diversity of those in Washinhton. Thereby, using the Knowledge that the system preserves as we dictate that to the public and business’.

    The public, American People, are fed up. Take ownership and accountability for your actions and prove to America that you hold Integrity, Respect, Hono and Pride in serving the United States of America.

    IF the everyday american citizen performed or acted like you gools, we’d be fired and/or put in jail.

  8. I am quite frankly tired of hearing about rRussian collusion. We have been investigating it now for months and they haven’t come up with anything yet. Don’t we have enough other troubles to concern ourselves with. And what about Obama endorsing the man from France. Isn’t that somehow collusion also?

    • And it seems to be working Michael, I believe the liberals both democrat and republican will do anything to vilify President Trump! They have never seen anything like him in Washington before and they are scared to death that he’s going to do exactly what he said he would!

    • And the bigger and more egregious the LIE, the more likely it is that it will be believed by the Left’s “useful idiots”…and their seething anger will spew forth. They are still engulfed in bitterness about a lost election; and their only recourse is to act out, sometimes violently,” like the ignorant, whining, entitlement-demanding “libtards” that they are.
