CNN: Trump Folks May Have Possibly Coordinated with Russia, Sources Might Say. Possibly.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Patterico @ 7:38 pm

This is CNN:

The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, US officials told CNN.

This is partly what FBI Director James Comey was referring to when he made a bombshell announcement Monday before Congress that the FBI is investigating the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, according to one source.

The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings, according to those U.S. officials. The information is raising the suspicions of FBI counterintelligence investigators that the coordination may have taken place, though officials cautioned that the information was not conclusive and that the investigation is ongoing.

Wow. So some anonymous sources, based on evidence we can’t see, have inconclusive maybes that suggest possibly there could have been this thing that happened.

After all the stories Big Media presents us with that fizzle out, forgive me if my attitude is: wake me up when you have actual evidence.

I’m really tired of this. And, just to piss off everybody in an equal opportunity fashion: I’m equally tired of all the partisans out there who are declaiming that this Nunes character somehow proved that Donald Trump was surveilled and wiretapped and PEOPLE OWE DONALD TRUMP A BIG APOLOGY!!!!1!!111!!!!1!! (If this confuses you, read Jay Caruso and learn about incidental collection. It ain’t targeted surveillance and it ain’t wiretapping.)

Good Lord. Settle down, people.

  1. With veracity equal to CNN’s, I have my own breaking news;

    NASA has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected extraterrestrial operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, US officials told CNN.

  2. To continue with my theme from yesterday, the reaction today of Trump fans to Nunes’ press conference is just baffling. I can’t fathom how far up one’s backside someone must be in order to twist a statement that no one wire tapped Trump and all surveillance was legal into an argument that Trump was right in accusing Obama of wire tapping him.

  3. I’m sure this is a coincidence:

    I pray the whole truth is unmasked in the end.
