What evidence of collusion?

Where's the beef?
You are probably not aware that there is no evidence of The Donald actually doing anything wrong, inappropriate or illegal.

Here are some unexpected people in Washington saying so.
1. Sam Stein, Huffington Post: “But just to be clear, there has been no actual evidence yet.” 
Rep. Maxine Watters (D-Ca): “No, it has not been.”

2. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina: “There is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians as of this date. I do not believe the president himself is a target or subject of any criminal investigation as of right now. So that’s what I know right now.
3. Wolf Blitzer, CNN: “The last time we spoke, Senator, I asked you if you had actually seen evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, and you said to me — and I’m quoting you now — you said, ‘not at this time.’ Has anything changed since we spoke last?” 
Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Ca): “Well, not– no, it hasn’t.”
Blitzer: “But I just want to be precise, Senator. In all of the—you’ve had access from the intelligence committee, from the Judiciary committee, all of the access you’ve had to very sensitive information, so far you’ve not seen any evidence of collusion, is that right?”  
Sen. Feinstein: “Well, evidence that would establish that there’s collusion. There are all kinds of rumors around. There are newspaper stories, but that’s not necessarily evidence.”
"If there was something sinister and illegal going on between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, the U.S. government as a whole had every incentive in the world to expose that as quickly as possible," Jim Geraghty writes. "They didn’t expose it before Election Day, they didn’t expose it before the Electoral College voted, they didn’t expose it before Inauguration Day… How many months have the best investigators in the United States been digging into this?"
