The mainstream media’s never-ending Russia-Trump conspiracy theory continued to unravel this week, after notes from a senior campaign official exonerated President Trump and his family from any wrongdoing when senior officials met with a Russian attorney at Trump Tower last year.
Recently reviewed notes from former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, detailing the infamous meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer, does not contain any “damaging” material to the President or his family.
According to Politico, government sources familiar with the investigation told reporters Manafort’s notes “are not seen as damaging to the Trump family or campaign officials.”
“The notes from the meeting do not contain any damaging information about Clinton or references to promises of damaging information about her, nor do they indicate that officials on the campaign were promising favors or seeking them in return for money,” writes the author.
“According to these people, the notes have been with Senate officials for weeks and have been reviewed by a number of people on Capitol Hill,” Politico adds.
The mainstream media and liberal lawmakers have been obsessed for over a year with baseless accusations the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton.
The President has repeatedly denied the claims, calling the allegations the “biggest witch hunt” in the history of the United States.
