CNN is obsessed with promoting the conspiracy theory that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton.

The network’s hosts spend their days bringing on guests in the hope one will say once and for all that Trump and his team are guilty of treason.

So when they invited on a top Democrat Senator, they weren’t expecting the answer they would get.

California Democrat Diane Feinstein appeared on CNN with Wolf Blitzer to discuss the Senate’s investigation into Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 election.

CNN has been promoting this fever dream about the Trump campaign in cahoots with Russian intelligence on email hacks and was hoping Feinstein – who sits on both the Intelligence and Judiciary committees – would give them the answer they longed for.

But Blitzer – and CNN’s – hopes were crushed when Feinstein declared she had seen no evidence of collusion.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

“Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday that there is so far no evidence showing collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign aides and Russian officials.

Blitzer mentioned that Feinstein and other colleagues from the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence had visited CIA headquarters on Tuesday to be briefed on the investigation. He then asked Feinstein whether she had evidence, without disclosing any classified information, that there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“Not at this time,” Feinstein said.”

“Well, that’s a pretty precise answer,” Blitzer said.

The answer broke the hearts of liberals all across America.

But the media continues to stoke the fire on this conspiracy theory.

They tried again with Senator Joe Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia.

Appearing on Face the Nation, he too shot down the idea that Trump was involved in any schemes with Russia.

The Free Beacon reports:

“Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) admitted Sunday there is currently no evidence showing collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia.

CBS host John Dickerson asked Manchin on “Face the Nation” about the latest information he has received on the federal investigation into potential links between the Trump campaign and Russia and whether he has seen any evidence of collusion.

Manchin said he has seen no proof of collusion, despite accusations to the contrary from many who oppose Trump, including members of Congress who have threatened impeachment proceedings.

“There’s an awful lot of smoke there, let’s put it that way,” Manchin said. “People that might have said they were involved, to what extent they were involved, to what extent the president might have known about these people or whatever, there is nothing there from that standpoint that we have seen directly linking our president to any of that.”

But Democrats and the media will not let go of this conspiracy theory.

They are wedded to the idea that the only way Trump could have won the election was by cheating.

It doesn’t matter how many Senators – even if they are Democrats – go on TV and say they have not seen any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, the left refuses to accept that the election was legitimate and their ideas were rejected.
