Thanks to their shameless bias, that nugget is buried down in paragraph six of their story, which leads with this juicy headline:
Exclusive: Trump campaign had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians: sources
Just one problem: That really doesn’t mean anything:
The people who described the contacts to Reuters said they had seen no evidence of wrongdoing or collusion between the campaign and Russia in the communications reviewed so far. But the disclosure could increase the pressure on Trump and his aides to provide the FBI and Congress with a full account of interactions with Russian officials and others with links to the Kremlin during and immediately after the 2016 election.
When Democrats are under investigation, this is known as a “witch hunt” or a “feeding frenzy,” but since it’s a Republican the media is trying to take down, relevant information is buried deep beneath speculation and conjecture.
