The biggest fake news story of the century is the Trump-Russia probe.
After 8 months of intense investigation, not one shred of evidence has been unearthed to back up the wild and false claims that President Trump colluded with Russia to “steal” the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton.
Democrats are now being forced to walk back the outlandish claims, as more and more people have the “put up or shut up” attitude.
The chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence had to admit there’s no “smoking gun” between Trump and Russia.
And trust me, if there was, they would have found it by now.

Virginia Democratic Sen. Mark Warner, vice chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, told CNN’s Jake Tapper Sunday that his committee has not found definitive evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with foreign elements to influence the 2016 presidential election.
The absence of evidence notwithstanding, Warner expressed concern over allegations the president repeatedly asked leaders of the nation’s law enforcement and intelligence agencies to “downplay” the extent or severity of the ongoing Russia probe.
Former FBI Director James Comey will appear before Warner’s committee on Thursday to discuss his abrupt dismissal last month by President Donald Trump. Several White House officials, including Trump aide Kellyanne Conway and press secretary Sean Spicer, suggested that the administration might invoke executive privilege to prevent Comey from testifying. Executive privilege allows the president to block the disclosure of sensitive information in judicial settings.
Elsewhere in his interview with Tapper, Warner argued the president would be on “shaky legal ground” if he attempted to invoke executive privilege and hinder the former director’s appearance.
