Hume: Russia Collusion Evidence Adds Up to Little Against Trump
Brit Hume said that the case laid out by Democrats in a Congressional hearing this week adds up to very little evidence of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.
Hume said FBI Director James Comey admitted he was probing the Trump campaign but would not say whether there was an active investigation of illegal leaks like the one that led to the ouster of Gen. Michael Flynn.
"What's going on here?" Hume asked.
Hume said Comey's remarks could have been a "bookend" or a "payback call" for the publicity from the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
It's reasonable to suggest the FBI should not be admitting whether or not they are conducting investigations, Hume said.
He said the Democrats used that hearing to lay out their case for the possibility of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Their testimony sounds impressive when it's laid out, but "none of [it] adds up to evidence of collusion, [just] contacts and intention."
Russia thought President Trump was going to lose, Hume said, calling it an "odd way of colluding."
