The headline should have read “Widely Reported: No Evidence of Wrongdoing or Collusion Between the Trump Campaign and Russia”
“Michael Flynn and other advisers to Donald Trump’s campaign were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 calls and emails during the last seven months of the 2016 presidential race, current and former U.S. officials familiar with the exchanges told Reuters.”
Ooooo! Could this be the smoking gun the MSM has been waiting for?!
Wait, no. Here is the real lead, buried six paragraphs deep:
“The people who described the contacts to Reuters said they had seen no evidence of wrongdoing or collusion between the campaign and Russia in the communications reviewed so far.”
In other words, FAKE NEWS!
Over the course of the campaign, some unknown private citizens working for the Trump Campaign, or advising the campaign, made 18 calls/emails to Russian officials, or Russian nationals, or people who have been to Russia, or possibly to people who know people who have been to Russia, or something, according to someone.
THAT PROVES IT!
