The Left went bananas over another supposed “clue” of President Trump’s deep ties to the Kremlin recently, with the leak that Hope Hicks had been sent email by individuals connected to the Russian government.
Only one problem – if the government and its spies were so-closely connected to Trump Tower, they wouldn’t be begging Trump’s communications girl to talk to them!
The NYT has been forced to point this out, writing that the revelation of the tentative out-reach to Hicks shows that there was no deeper conspiracy beyond unreturned correspondence.
More from Daily Caller:
The New York Times wrote Friday that Russian government attempts to connect with Donald Trump aide Hope Hicks undercut the theory that the Kremlin had deep ties with the Trump campaign.
“The Russian emails to Ms. Hicks occurred six months after the F.B.I. had begun investigating possible connections between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia,” the Times reported about Russian operatives’ emails to Hicks during the presidential transition.
“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.”
Special Counsel Robert Mueller continues to conduct a wide-ranging probe into Russian election interference. Four Trump campaign aides have been charged due to the probe, however, none of the charges related to any sort of collusion with the Kremlin.
The paranoid search continues! Dear God, let the establishment find something to prove that they couldn’t have lost fair and square to the Trumpers!
But now even liberal newspapers are seeing through the act.
