Now, Trump could have been involved with Russia, of course. Luckily, in America, there is a thing called evidence that is necessary.
oh there is plenty of "evidence".
You want evidence?
On at least nine occasions, Trump and his senior officials made blanket denials that there had been any contacts whatsoever with Russians during the campaign or that there were any ties between the campaign and Russians.
Turns out Trump's aides and associates had at least 19 face-to-face meetings with Russians or people affiliated with the Russian government during the presidential campaign and transition.
There were at least 51 communications during the campaign or transition between Trump associates and Russians or people closely affiliated with the Russian government, according to their public statements, court filings.
Then there was statements like this:
"Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing," "I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."
And explosive stuff like this:
Donald Trump Jr, the eldest son of the US president, was in direct communication with WikiLeaks in the crucial final stages of the 2016 presidential election, a new leak of private correspondence from inside the Trump circle reveals.
The most politically explosive communication between the two parties, according to the Atlantic, came on and after 12 October 2016.
"Hey Donald, great to see you and your dad talking about our publications," the WikiLeaks account, @WikiLeaks, said to Trump Jr two days after his father had proclaimed at a campaign rally: "I love WikiLeaks!"
"Strongly suggest your dad tweets this link if he mentions us. There's many great stories the press are missing and we're sure some of your follows [sic] will find it," the message continued.
The message went on to offer a link to wlsearch.tk a search tool that facilitates the exploration of the database of leaked emails from John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign chairman, that WikiLeaks had by then begun to publish.
Julia Ioffe, author of the Atlantic article, writes that Trump Jr did not reply to the WikiLeaks message. But two days later, on 14 October, he did tweet that same link to wlsearch.tk, encouraging "those who have the time to read about all the corruption and hypocrisy" exposed by the WikiLeaks emails.
I have barely touched the surface of the piles of evidence.
And there is a whole lot more coming.
