Did The Democrats Just Realize The Russia Narrative Is Not Helping?

Things are not trending well for the Democrats, despite what you may read/seen on mainstream media.

The generic congressional ballot has continued to tighten, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, with the Democrats’ edge over Republicans within the poll’s margin of sampling error for the first time this cycle.

About six months out from Election Day, 47% of registered voters say they back the Democratic candidate in their district, 44% back the Republican.

All of which may explain why the top Democrat on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence appears to be backing away from the “Russia Collusion” narrative slowly and quietly…

As The Daily Caller reports, Virginia Sen. Mark Warner said in an interview with The New Yorker’s David Remnick, when asked whether he believes that Trump associates conspired with the Kremlin to influence the 2016 presidential election…

that contacts between Trump campaign associates and Russians could be “a set of coincidences” rather than collusion.

“I’m reserving my final judgement until we’ve seen all the witnesses we need to see, and we’ve gotten all the facts. So I’m going to hold off,”

 

“This may all be simply a set of coincidences or it may be … it was not the sophistication to realize what was happening,” said Warner.

The White House and members of the Trump campaign have vehemently denied coordinating with the Russian government, but several members of the campaign had contacts with Russians in the run-up to the election.
