‘It is also unclear whether the conversations had anything to do with Mr. Trump himself.’

by Rich Lowry

That’s a line in the eye-popping New York Times piece from last night on contacts between Trump officials and Russia during the campaign. I’d say it’s a pretty big caveat, wouldn’t you? I think the Russia story obviously deserves investigation and it’s always best to assume the worst of Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, and the gang, but trial by leak and innuendo doesn’t serve anyone well. A congressional committee or committees should grind down on all this, get the facts out, and let the targets respond.
