For months, intrigue has floated around Washington over Trump and Russia.

Is this really a scandal that threatens Trump’s Presidency?

One key Senator made a startling revelation that will change everything you think about this story.

Democratic Senator Chris Murphy was interviewed on MSNBC after Jon Ossoff’s defeat in the special election in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District.

Specifically, he was quizzed about the amount of time national Democrats devote to the Russia story as opposed to the concerns of everyday voters.

Murphy’s answer was not what you would expect.

He admitted the Russia scandal has become a distraction.

The Daily Caller reports:

“Democrats’ focus on potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government has been a “distraction” for the party, Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy said Wednesday.

“When I am back in Connecticut, I often get on a commuter bus and ride it for just an hour to talk to folks that, frankly, don’t normally call or write my office, and I’ll just say, they are never talking about issues like Russia. They are not talking, frankly, what’s on cable news at night,” Murphy said in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Murphy and the “Morning Joe” panel were discussing Tuesday’s special election in Georgia’s 6th district in which Democrat Jon Ossoff lost to Republican Karen Handel.

Democrats had high hopes for the race, and spent heavily on the contest. The party’s loss makes them 0 for 4 in special elections held to replace Trump administration appointees.

“The fact that we have spent so much time talking about Russia has been a distraction from what should be the clear contrast between Democrats and the Trump agenda, which is on economics,” Murphy said Wednesday.”

How can that be?

The Democrats have claimed for months that Russia engaged in a cyber Pearl Harbor during the election.

And key figures like California Representative Adam Schiff – the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee – has repeatedly stoked the base by claiming evidence of collusion may yet exist.

If Democrats truly believe Trump stole the election, how can they admit this is a distraction?

The answer is simple.

The Russia story was always fake news to begin with.

Democrats and the media who pursued the collusion angle only did so to inflict political damage on the Trump administration and fire up Democrat voters.

But their strategy has failed.

Democrats have lost all four contested special elections.

Republican enthusiasm has matched that of the Democrats in the GOP.

The Russia story has been a dud on every front.

It’s a hoax.

It hasn’t depressed GOP voter turnout.

And it hasn’t produced any electoral gains.

So it’s no wonder top Democrats are admitting the truth about this fake news story.
