Is the Trump-Russia scandal just fake news?

There is a surprisingly long list of members of Trump's inner circle who have met with Russian government operatives—Carter Page, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, Jeff Sessions, JD Gordon, and even Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner. But what do these connections really add up to? Where is the actual evidence that the Trump campaign was engaged in illegal activity? As Clinton supporter Mike Morell put it,

 "There's no little campfire, there's no little candle, there's no spark. And there's a lot of people looking for it."

Even staunch Trump critic Dianne Feinstein admits there is no hard evidence of wrongdoing.

All of our intelligence agencies concur that Russia was trying to throw the election to Trump. This, in addition to the baffling amount of contact between the Trump campaign and the Russians, definitely warrants further investigation. Sally Yates testified she had warned the White House that National Security Advisor Mike Flynn had been compromised by the Russians—yet they kept him on for 18 days, only firing him when the Washington Post got hold of the story. It's strange enough to make people think the Trump-Russia scandal is real.

The new revelations about Michael Flynn are pretty disturbing.

Skeptics are asking if there's nothing to hide, why is the White House engaging in what looks like a cover-up? Why not be transparent and allow investigators to get to the bottom of this matter?

The president himself has tweeted extensively that the story is fake news.

And many Americans concur.

But several congressmen who have access to classified information claim they've seen evidence suggesting collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Still..."Suggest collusion?" "Possible ties?"

There's nothing concrete here to pin on Trump or his campaign.
