The Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation into allegations of “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia has ruled that there is no collusion. President Trump celebrated the news by taking to Twitter over it. He also thanked an unlikely source for reporting it fairly: MSNBC.
After over two years of false accusations and approximately 200 interviews, the committee is finally wrapping up its “collusion” investigation. Sources from both Democrats and Republicans on the committee confirm that there is “no direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia.” Something most of us knew from the very start.
“The Senate Intelligence Committee: THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIA!” Trump tweeted early this morning. He was very happy as he should be. It’s just a shame that all this time was wasted on a witch hunt that the left knew was a lie and in fact, helped concoct.
From The Daily Wire:
“There is no factual evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia,” Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Richard Burr (R-NC) told NBC Tuesday. Last week, Sen. Burr told reporters that the committee knew the investigation was coming to a close because they’ve run out of questions to answer, NBC notes.
“We know we’re getting to the bottom of the barrel because there’re not new questions that we’re searching for answers to,” Burr told CBS Thursday. “What I’m telling you is that I’m going to present, as best we can, the facts to you and to the American people. And you’ll have to draw your own conclusion as to whether you think that, by whatever definition, that’s collusion.”
“Attempting to spin the findings of the committee in a way that doesn’t totally undermine the “Russia collusion” narrative, NBC has made sure to emphasize skeptical responses from Democrats, like ranking committee member Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, who said, “there’s never been a campaign in American history … that people affiliated with the campaign had as many ties with Russia as the Trump campaign did.” Another anonymous Democrat told NBC, “We were never going to find a contract signed in blood saying, ‘Hey Vlad, we’re going to collude.'”
“But the reality is, as even NBC admits, Democrats on the committee have been forced to acknowledge that there’s simply no evidence of “collusion”; instead, Democrats are left with pointing to what they deem to be a “pattern” of Russia contacts among some Trump associates and the WikiLeaks’ Clinton email dump, which ended up probably helping Trump some in the election, as “evidence” of the alleged conspiracy.”

As the results from the Senate Intelligence Committee came in and following an epic State of the Union Address, Trump’s approval rating is soaring. Monday, he was at 52%, the highest in months. Personally, I believe that number way understates Trump’s popularity out there.
Regardless of Warner and other Democrats claiming that Trump is in Russia’s pocket, there has never been a shred of evidence to that effect. At a rally in El Paso, Texas, President Trump described the notion of his campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia as a “hoax” and a “disgrace.” And it has been.
The Democrats’ attack, which was planned and carried out by high-level officials, has been sheer obstructionism from the beginning to stop Trump from getting rid of leftist policies. It didn’t work and Trump still looks to be reelected in 2020. Remember the meltdown when he won the first time? You ain’t seen nothing yet.

"The fact is that the real collusion was between Hillary and the Democrats and the other side with Russia. That's where the collusion is."
