Sen. Feinstein: No Evidence of Russian Collusion With Trump Campaign at This Time

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) says that so far, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has seen no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump's campaign aides and Russian officials.

On Wednesday, Feinstein and other members of the committee were briefed at CIA headquarters about the investigation into Russian meddling.

CNN's Wolf Blitzer asked Feinstein whether she had seen evidence of any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"Not at this time," Feinstein answered.

"Well, that's a pretty precise answer," Blitzer said, trying to hide his disappointment.

Blitzer shouldn't be blamed for getting his hopes up. Other top Democrats have suggested in interviews that they've seen evidence galore of Trump/Russian collusion. Via The Daily Caller:

California Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, has said he has seen “more than circumstantial” evidence showing coordination. Last month, California Rep. Eric Swalwell, another House committee member, said “there is evidence of collusion.”

Feinstein on Thursday also said that Susan Rice should testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee after being invited to do so by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham.

"I would hope she would consider doing it," she told MSNBC's Chuck Todd.  Puzzled by Rice's arbitrary bipartisan standard, she added, "I've never heard that it has to be a bipartisan letter. This is sort of a new criteria."
