No Collusion, No Pressure

The long-running Russian collusion conspiracy theory comes crashing down:
North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, the Republican chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, asked Comey, “Did the president at any time ask you to stop the FBI investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. elections?”

The former FBI director replied, “Not to my understanding, no.”

Burr followed up by asking if any member of the administration made this request, and Comey replied, “no.”

The answers from Comey come after weeks of Democrats accusing Trump of being guilty of obstruction of justice. The former FBI director’s opening testimony said that Trump told him in a meeting that he “hopes” Comey can “let” the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn “go.”
Nothingburgers often leave a bitter taste...
