Senate committee: ZERO evidence of Russian collusion; CNN offers RIDICULOUS spin

The Senate Intelligence Committee has been investigating possible collusion between Russian officials and President Donald Trump’s campaign team, and if CNN’s reporting is any indication, things aren’t looking great for them.

On Wednesday, CNN quoted Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr who said that while the panel has “more work to do,” “The committee continues to look into all evidence to see if there was any hint of collusion.” That certainly makes it sound like there’s been not even a “hint” of collusion uncovered thus far, doesn’t it? Per CNN, “Burr said the committee continues to look for “any hint of collusion” but has not come to any initial conclusions on that question, as it is still conducting interviews and reviewing documents, including 25 additional interviews this month.”

There’s one comment in particular that Burr made the next day, and it appears to be a direct mockery of CNN and their obsessive coverage of the Russia non-story.

As the Daily Caller reported, Burr also Thursday that some news outlets will be left “with egg on their face” over their reporting on the Russia investigation.

Burr issued the warning in an interview with CNN. He had been asked to respond to a tweet from President Trump calling on the committee to look into “Fake News Networks” in order to “see why so much of our news is just made up.”

That tweet was an apparent response to a status update provided by Burr and Senate Intelligence Committee vice-chairman Mark Warner on Wednesday regarding the panel’s investigation into Russian interference in the presidential campaign.

Burr made news by saying that the committee is still looking into whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government. But implicit in his statement is that the committee, which opened its investigation in January, has still not found evidence of collusion.

So, zero evidence of collusion! And how does CNN spin that?

Yeah, technically the issue will forever be “still open” so long as there’s no evidence uncovered.

How long will CNN continue to milk this bogus narrative? For at least the next three-and-a-half years, I’d guess.
