Liberals are going to hate this headline. They’ve lost one of their favorite conspiracy theories and talking points.
The New York Times is having to admit that there is no evidence Donald Trump has any ties to Russia. The FBI also no evidence Russia is trying to influence the election for Trump.
This is not good news for Democrats. That means we will all have to keep talking about Hillary Clinton’s emails.
Amid multiple reports drawing different connections between Donald Trump‘s campaign and Russia Monday night, the New York Times reported that FBI officials’ investigations of the GOP nominee have yet to confirm ties between the two.
FBI officials said their investigations have yet to find a connection between the GOP presidential nominee and Russia.
The bureau has been investigating the Russian government’s role in the U.S. presidential election. But the FBI believes that the country was likely trying to disrupt the overall race, and not trying boost Trump’s chance of getting elected.
The Monday night report comes after CNBC reported earlier in the day that FBI Director James Comey argued against accusing Russia of interfering in the election due to the timing, and because he did not want the accusation against Russia to come from his agency.
And Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) alleged earlier in the day that the FBI has “explosive information” about a connection between the two, suggesting federal investigators have “explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors and the Russian government” and must make it public.
Anyone else find it funny that the FBI is able to clear Donald Trump of wrongdoing, but cannot do the same for Hillary Clinton?
