Counterpoint: Krauthammer now sees Trump-Russia collusion

Political Cartoons by Bob Gorrell

Charles Krauthammer: Bungled collusion is still collusion  "The Russia scandal has entered a new phase and there’s no going back.

"For six months, the White House claimed that this scandal was nothing more than innuendo about Trump campaign collusion with Russia in meddling in the 2016 election. Innuendo for which no concrete evidence had been produced.
"Yes, there were several meetings with Russian officials, some only belatedly disclosed. But that is circumstantial evidence at best.
"Meetings tell you nothing unless you know what happened in them. We didn’t. Some of these were casual encounters in large groups like the famous July 2016 Kislyak-Sessions exchange of pleasantries at the Republican National Convention. Big deal.
"I was puzzled. Lots of cover-up, but where was the crime? Not even a third-rate burglary.
"For six months, smoke without fire. Yes, President Trump himself was acting very defensively, as if he were hiding something. But no one ever produced the something.
"My view was: Collusion? I just don’t see it. But I’m open to empirical evidence. Show me.
"The evidence is now shown. This is not hearsay, not fake news, not unsourced leaks. This is an email chain released by Donald Trump Jr. himself. A British go-between writes that there’s a Russian government effort to help Trump Sr. win the election, and as part of that effort he proposes a meeting with a “Russian government attorney” possessing damaging information on Hillary Clinton." . . .
