- Trump insists that there is no there there. That there is no fire.
- But there is a whole heck of a lot of smoke.
(CNN)President Donald Trump likes to dismiss the allegations surrounding the contacts between top aides on his campaign and Russian officials as "fake news."
That's A LOT of smoke. Now, just because there's tons of smoke doesn't mean there's a fire somewhere in there. But, what it does do is suggest that Trump's dismissal of questions about his campaign's ties to Russia are much more than "fake news."
And, if Trump truly believes that there is no fire, his best move would be to put his full weight behind a bipartisan investigation aimed at getting out all of the facts. He has yet to do so.
