Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was unable to offer any evidence of collusion between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russian government officials toward subversion of last year's presidential election during a Wednesday interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
For months, Democrats and their news media allies have pushed a narrative of 2016’s president election having been compromised by Russian state “interference” at the direction of Russian President Vladimir Putin in order to assist Trump’s presidential campaign. They have further implied that the political “interference” was coordinated between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russian state operatives or interlocutors.
Despite having no evidence to corroborate the allusion of collusion between Trump's presidential campaign and the Russian government, Feinstein suggested via innuendo that such evidence may exist, telling Blitzer that she has no evidence “at this time” when invited to offer evidence of her claimed suspicions.
Last week, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the House Intelligence Committee’s top Democrat, was similarly incapable of providing any evidence of conspiracy between Trump’s political associates and the Russian state toward subverting American democracy. Like Feinstein, Schiff deployed innuendo to suggest that such evidence exists.
According to Feinstein, Schiff, and many other Democrats, the absence of evidence of conspiracy between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russian state interests is the justification for congressional investigations to obtain evidence.
Neither Democrats nor Republicans have called for investigations into political influence campaigns driven by foreign state-run propaganda outlets such as the BBC, CBC, France24, Al-Jazeera, or PressTV.
