New York Times columnist David Brooks admitted over the weekend he was deeply worried the mainstream media was “getting ahead” of themselves regarding the Trump-Russia investigation, adding he was “bothered by the lack of emerging evidence.”
Speaking with NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday, Brooks reluctantly revealed he was increasingly uncomfortable that the investigation in to collusion between the White House and the Kremlin had not yet yielded a single piece of evidence.
“You’ve heard all the interviews. David Brooks do you have any better sense of where the President is this morning on this investigation?” asked host Chuck Todd.
“You know I’m actually getting more uncomfortable with this whole deal, thinking that maybe we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves,” said Brooks. “I’m bothered by the lack of emerging evidence about underlying crime, that there was actually collusion and coordination between the Trump White House.”
Brook’s admission comes days after the President hinted on twitter that he was actively under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. President Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing; labeling the never-ending Russia probe a political "witch hunt."
