Intelligence Chairman: ‘Still NO Evidence of Trump Campaign Contacts with Russia’
Still No Evidence Of Trump-Russia Connection
On Monday, House Intelligence committee chairman Devin Nunes said that lawmakers should not begin a McCarthy-style investigation based on a just a couple of reports from the media CBS reported.
“We just cannot go on a witch hunt,” Nunes told reporters.
Nunes went as far as to say that he hasn’t seen any evidence that the Trump campaign had any sort of contacts with Russian officials according to the Washington Times.
From The Washington Times:
“We still don’t have any evidence of them talking to Russians,” Mr. Nunes said as he briefed reporters. “As of right now, the initial inquiries I’ve made to the appropriate agencies, I don’t have any evidence.”
He said he’s interested in evidence, but it doesn’t appear the investigative agencies have it.
The New York Times, citing anonymous U.S. officials, reported earlier this month that Trump campaign aides had “repeated” contacts with Russian intelligence, based on “phone records and intercepted calls.”
This is not surprising at all. On Sunday, The Gateway Pundit documented a lie that was being promoted by the New York Times where they intentionally misled readers by misquoting what President Trump said during his CPAC speech.
The Gateway Pundit also posted a video on Sunday from MSNBC’s Meet the Press where Senator Tom Cotton blasted Chuck Todd for relying too much on anonymous sources. Chuck Todd immediately changed topics and made zero attempt to defend his position after being exposed by Cotton.
