With Michael Flynn now officially taken out and the sweet taste of success fresh on their palate, the mainstream media is setting its sites on other current and former senior officials connected to Trump’s White House and his campaign. As The Hill pointed out last night, The New York Times first reported that intercepted phone calls and phone records show that several aides and allies to President Trump’s campaign were in repeated contact with senior Russian intelligence officials. That said, in what has become the journalistic norm in the post-Trump era, the NYT’s reporting was again anonymously sourced, devoid of facts and even admitted way at the end of the article that there was “no evidence” of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Current and former officials that spoke with the Times would not give many details, and it’s not clear exactly who, both from the U.S. and Russia, were part of the conversations or what they talked about, including if discussions centered on Trump himself.
Officials told the publication that they have seen no evidence of collusion in regards to hacking or the election.
Three of the four current and former officials who spoke with the Times said the contacts were discovered during the same time that U.S. intelligence agencies were investigating Russia’s extensive hacking campaign, later determined to be aimed at helping Trump win the White House.
