How to tell if the Trump-Russia collusion probe is real or not?
The special counsel investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election has released a trove of documents that include some of the most sensitive information on Trump’s inner circle.
The White House, for instance, released a list of the president’s campaign aides who worked for Russian-backed media outlet RT.
RT was sanctioned for publishing fake news and disseminating propaganda.
In addition, the special counsel has released dozens of memos, emails and other documents to the media.
The documents were obtained from the office of former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who is leading the Russia probe.
Mueller is leading a team of investigators who have seized on the leak of hacked emails and text messages from the Democratic National Committee to probe potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
The special probe has found evidence of possible collusion by Trump aides.
A lawyer for Trump, Robert Kelner, said Wednesday that Mueller is not looking at any specific persons or organizations in the investigation.
He also said Mueller has not requested any documents.
The president has denied any collusion and called the leak a “political witch hunt.”
