FBI Reportedly Has ‘Concrete and Corroborative Evidence’ of Trump/Russia Collusion

You would think that a major news outlet saying that the FBI has “specific concrete and corroborative evidence of collusion” between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia would have been the biggest story of the day on Thursday, but it wasn’t.

That’s most likely because the original report, from The Guardian buried the lede quite a bit, as this was the very last paragraph:

One source suggested the official investigation was making progress. “They now have specific concrete and corroborative evidence of collusion,” the source said. “This is between people in the Trump campaign and agents of [Russian] influence relating to the use of hacked material.”

The lede burying is doubly embarrassing for The Guardian because the general thrust of the whole article is about how British intelligence — notably part of the “Five Eyes” information sharing agreement with the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand — was the first entity to discover ties between Russia and the Trump campaign.
