Newest Trump ‘bombshell’ drops before noon despite GAPING hole in middle of so-called scoop

Q: When does a news organization bury the lede to a story?

A: When it suits their narrative.

The Reuters news agency made waves early Thursday when it reported that at least 18 previously undisclosed contacts between Trump campaign staffers and senior Russian officials had been unearthed.

Those contacts consisted of both emails and telephone conversations, according to Reuters’ exclusive report.

The news agency went on to report that those 18 contacts are being closely examined by both the FBI and members of House and Senate intelligence committees attempting to find evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

It wasn’t until a reader got to paragraph six of the story that he realizes it’s “all sizzle and no steak,” and “all show and no go.” Paragraph six states:

“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.”

Reuters reported that the majority of those communications discussed how to restore U.S.-Russian economic relations and work together on mutual foreign policy interests.

Folks on social media weren’t surprised — they saw it as more of the same.

The Reuters piece added that the quest for incriminating evidence continues, and even surmised that the little that was disclosed on this go-round could open the door to new information.

“But the disclosure could increase the pressure on Trump and his aides to provide the FBI and Congress with a full account of interactions with Russian officials and others with links to the Kremlin during and immediately after the 2016 election.”

Um, OK.

Has it occurred to anyone that if it’s evidence of collusion with the Kremlin they’re after, maybe they’re looking in the wrong clubhouse?

The questionable sale of 20 percent of America’s uranium reserves to Russia, Russia’s $170,000 payment to Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta’s brother to name a few. And throughout it all, Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook would neither confirm nor deny contact between the Clinton camp and the Kremlin.

Ben Garrison Cartoons summed it up nicely, because sometimes a picture does speak louder than words:
