NYT capitulates on Russia collusion: Admits Hope Hicks story doesn’t add up with Democrat narrative

As the Russia -Trump collusion narrative continues to crumble, even The New York Times is beginning to take their heads out of the proverbial sand and see an occasional point of incontrovertible logic.

In a Friday piece about the Russian government’s attempts to contact President Donald Trump aide Hope Hicks, the Times essentially seemed forced to admit that not only was there “no evidence that Ms. Hicks did anything improper,” but that “the Russian outreach to Ms. Hicks undercuts the idea that the Russian government had established deep ties to the Trump campaign before the election.”

A stunning admission, especially from a media outlet highly criticized by Trump for its seemingly hellbent determination to bring him down at any cost.

From the piece:

The Russian outreach efforts show that, even after American intelligence agencies publicly accused Moscow of trying to influence the outcome of last year’s presidential election, Russian operatives were undaunted in their efforts to establish contacts with Mr. Trump’s advisers.

There is no evidence that Ms. Hicks did anything improper. According to former officials, American intelligence and law enforcement agencies became alarmed by introductory emails that Ms. Hicks received from Russian government addresses in the weeks after Mr. Trump’s election.

Later in the article came the stunning admission: “In some ways, the Russian outreach to Ms. Hicks undercuts the idea that the Russian government had established deep ties to the Trump campaign before the election. If it had, Russian officials might have found a better entrèe to the White House than unprompted emails to Ms. Hicks.”

In other words, why were the Russians poking at the edges by contacting people like Hicks and former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos, if they were essentially in bed with the Trump campaign?
