Senate Has Found No Direct Evidence Of Collusion Between Trump And Russia. Are you surprised?

"If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don't have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia," said Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C.,

Surprise, surprise. Members of the Senate Intelligence Committee investigating whether or not there was collusion between Trump and Russians have stated today that there is 0 evidence of such conclusion.

Of course, opinions are split on party lines. But, what matters here is the evidence, or lack thereof I should say.

"Respectfully, I disagree," Mark Warner (D), the top ranking Democrat in the SIC, said Tuesday. "I'm not going to get into any conclusions I've reached because my basis of this has been that I'm not going to reach any conclusion until we finish the investigation. And we still have a number of the key witnesses to come back."

Warner's comments represented a now common public split for the leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which has been the only congressional panel that has kept its investigation into Russia's 2016 election meddling on a bipartisan track.

Richard Burr and Warner have managed to conduct a bipartisan investigation for more than two years, as their staffs have quietly interviewed more than 200 witnesses and reviewed more than 300,000 pages of documents as part of the probe. But they have put off making conclusions about the collusion question, and the split is a signal that they could struggle to stay on the same page as the committee attempts to write its report on 2016 election meddling.

Last week, Burr told CBS News that the committee did not have facts indicating collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

"If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don't have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia," Burr said.
