At this point, no evidence that Russia did anything that influenced the election

"Ten months after questions were first raised, there’s no evidence that Donald Trump “colluded” with Russia, according to prominent Democrats and Republicans who have reviewed information or received briefings." (Sharyl Attkisson).

Hasn't Russia/USSR and the USA always had its spies and coverts snooping around other countries' political elections? Probably not many operatives in North Korea, but they are everywhere else, including checking out the recent French election, the British brexit, and Israel.

The media hype will continue, however, because it's the best way they know to keep the Republicans from getting anything done that will help the economy, protect the borders, save the unborn and get the infrastructure rebuilt, all of which the Democrats couldn't do. 
"It’s significant that no evidence of wrongdoing by Trump has publicly surfaced long after multiple players in politics and media began insisting there was collusion. Among the allegations of treasonous behavior was a “dossier” peddled to the media and published in January. It made lurid claims about Trump ties to Russia, involving bribery and prostitution. But it turns out the dossier wasn’t an intelligence report; it was campaign opposition research compiled by Trump political opponents.

This week, Former Defense Intelligence Agency chief James Clapper told Congress that the sourcing trail of the dossier was so poor, that the entire file was excluded from in an intelligence community assessment in January.

Yet despite the persistent dearth of evidence, there’s been no widespread backtracking by those who have made claims against President Trump to date."
It's so difficult for the media and DNC and Mrs. Clinton to acknowledge they had a bad candidate.

Hey, Norma - so glad you are still blogging. Your posts are so clear and well written.

I listen to Eric Erickson most days on my way home from work. I find him to be one of the most intellectually honest of the conservative radio hosts. His contention is the same as yours. The Left cannot accept that they ran a horrible candidate in Clinton. They thought it was in the bag. What were they thinking? Thus the melt-down and cry-baby antics. My feeling is that this will not end well for any of us.

Thanks, I'll take a look. Not sure we have him on a channel here, but I can try a pod cast.

"Erick Erickson hosts the Erick Erickson Show every weekday from 5pm to 7pm ET on the nation's most listened to new/talk station, WSB Radio in Atlanta, Georgia."
