Trump campaign had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians

Advisers to President Trump's campaign reportedly had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russian officials and those with ties to Moscow.

Reuters reported that former national security adviser Michael Flynn, along with other advisers to Trump, had contact with Russians in at least 18 calls or emails during the last seven months of Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

Of the 18 undisclosed contacts, six were phone calls between Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, and advisers to Trump, Reuters reported, citing current and former officials.

The calls and messages happened between April 2016 and November 2016, according to Reuters. The communications covered issues such as improving the U.S.-Russia economic relationship and fighting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

Officials said Flynn talked with Kislyak ahead of the president's inauguration about creating a back channel for communication between Trump and Russia.

*Officials said they had no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Already a thread about this

http://www.libertynewsforum.com/cgi-bin/politics/YaBB.pl?num=1495126952


No crime no collusion... this is the media and grudge holders trying to make it seem as if there is a new scandal daily in order to depress the country into thinking our president is a danger to us and needs to go.

Who is making the original claim?

The media continuing to pump these variations of the same basic theme/story is going to fatigue large swaths of the public.

They should have stuck with one main story and stuck to it.  This will end up the same way the theme of Trump and his treatment of various women.  When there is some new unproven or unprovable claim coming out every other day, it is hard to keep the public's focus.  This is what will happen here if it keeps up this way.

The relevant question is - "why were they not disclosed?"

People keep saying that it's perfectly normal for there to be contact between presidential campaign teams and foreign parties, to lay the groundwork for future diplomatic relations, but if these ongoing contacts were all perfectly ordinary and standard, Why Were They Not Disclosed?

It's someone who has access or has seen the information, so IC or Congress (or both).

Now that there is an actual investigator with lots of power, isn't it about time to stop all these tripe threads?

And that is just it, we don't know.  It is an anonymous source.  These last 3 stories (Trump divulging foreign intelligence to Russia, the Comey memo and now this story) all get rolling on the back of anonymous sources and, as far as I have seen, none of them have been corroborated by any named person outside of whichever media organization reports it.

here's a link to Reuters in which you will see it's all anonymous & unnamed sources & that so far they have seen no wrongdoing or collusion.
