    EXACTLY what is being alleged (or even suspected) here? That Donald Trump or his associates are Russian spies? That they hacked DNC emails and fed them to the Russians? Or some other nefarious collusion with foreign nationals to rig the Presidential election?

    If not one of these preposterous scenarios, what is the legitimate purpose of the incessant innuendo on the part of the MSM? Is it anything more than political propaganda?

    That's what the FBI is trying to find out.

    The director of the FBI said there was no supporting evidence in his files to support the claim and that was months ago.

    The FBI is trying to understand why the Trump associates were in collusion with the Russian agents.

    That is not what he said. He said there was no wire tap of Trump. He did say there was Russian efforts to infiltrate the campaign and that Trump associates were affiliated with the Russians.

    No...that is not what he said.....there were Russian attempts to influence the election....that's it......there was no hacking of machines and there was zero evidence of any cooperation between Trump, his people and the Russians.....cause if there was....we would know it by now and we would have it on every news station 24/7...

    no offense but since collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign/administration is the definition of Russiagate given in the OP what does the above post mean? Sure there is enough evidence that Hillary and her campaign colluded with anyone that could fill the campaign chest she would be convicted in a civil court and possibly indicted in criminal court but that isn't what this thread is about.

    "They" have said nothing of the sort. The FBI is actively pursuing the investigation, and that is why the Trumpoviches are afraid. The FBI have not said "there was zero evidence of any cooperation between Trump, his people and the Russians...".

    No...they are investigating but stated that they have found no collusion......the New York Times story and the Washington Post story state this....

    And the contacts...so far....are normal contacts between people who actually do business in those countries.....no more, no less......
