    The US intelligence investigation into alleged ties of US President Donald Trump's administration to Russia has not found evidence of any wrongdoing so far, local media reported.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The investigators have been trying to determine, whether Trump's team was coordinating with Russians leading up to and after the election, the CBS broadcaster reported Monday.

    Earlier on Monday, The Wall Street Journal newspaper reported that the US counterintelligence was investigating the nature of the contacts between Trump's national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn and Russian officials. The inquiry reportedly focused on December 29, 2016 phone conversation between Flynn and Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak.

    US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is among Trump's team members suspected of ties to Russia as well.

    Trump's victory in the US presidential election in 2016, despite all negative forecasts, surprised the US establishment. The media and intelligence accused Russia of interfering into the election with an aim to aid Trump to become the US president, since he promised to review the US-Russian relations. Russian officials, in turn, denied all allegations calling them absurd.

      It is typical that people forget so quick the underlying factors behind all the events from the last election campaign in the US.

      Does anyone see any connection between, Soros - Russia - Trump? I think it is quite obvious. Soros is a criminal of proportions and has an arrest warrant in Russia. He lost a lot of money when he had speculated wrongly that Clinton should win the election. He lost maybe little over a billion dollars due to Trump who is now the US president.
      He is behind all the violent demonstrations in the US against Trump through all his more than 200 organisations he controls. During the election he stirred up the russophobic movement all over the western world to make sure Clinton should win the election.

      So now he has killed two flies in one smack, by combining the made up russophobia and trying to involve Trump and point to the later as a Russian agent. He has been so convincing that politicians all over have swallowed the bait and so has the liberal left crowd. Talk about evil!
