BOOM! American Stocks Surge as Senate Confirms “No Russian Collusion”

American stocks surge after Senate declares no evidence of Russian collusion

American stocks surged on Tuesday after the Senate Intel Committee announced that they found “ZERO evidence” of Russian collusion. 

According to NBC News, the investigation is coming to a close after almost 2 years and more than 200 interviews. reports: Senate Intel Committee Chairman Richard Burr said the decision to end the probe was made after the committee started running out of new questions to ask.

If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don’t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia,” said Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, in an interview with CBS News last week.

Burr was careful to note that more facts may yet be uncovered, but he also made clear that the investigation was nearing an end.
“We know we’re getting to the bottom of the barrel because there’re not new questions that we’re searching for answers to,” Burr said.

Unsurprisingly, Democrats on the committee that the more than 100 contacts between Trump campaign staff and the Russians before Trump’s inauguration (some of which, of course, were made after the election) raised reason for suspicion, though they didn’t challenge Burr’s characterization of the probe.

Democratic Senate investigators who spoke to NBC News on condition of anonymity did not dispute Burr’s characterizations, but said they lacked context.

“We were never going find a contract signed in blood saying, ‘Hey Vlad, we’re going to collude,'” one Democratic aide said.

The series of contacts between Trump’s associates, his campaign officials, his children and various Russians suggest a campaign willing to accept help from a foreign adversary, the Democrats say.

By many counts, Trump and his associates had more than 100 contacts with Russians before the January 2017 presidential inauguration.

Unlike the House probe, the Senate Intel Committee probe was the only bipartisan Congressional inquiry into the collusion question, and was co-led by Burr and ranking member, Mark Warner.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has been conducting the sole bipartisan inquiry, led by Burr and ranking Democrat Mark Warner of Virginia. The committee has sifted through some 300,000 documents, investigators tell NBC News, including classified intelligence shedding light on how the Russians communicated about their covert operation to interfere in the 2016 election.

Stocks surged on the news:

But counterintuitive as it might seem, the odds of Trump being impeached during his first term have climbed on Tuesday.

While Trump is probably occupied with other, bigger issues on Tuesday, we await a tweet from the president cheering his latest vindication (though he did preview the finding in a tweet a few days ago).

Meanwhile, reports surfaced recently suggesting that the Mueller probe might also soon be coming to an end after several of his prosecutors left or were transferred elsewhere within the DOJ…but this wouldn’t be the first time that reports of the Mueller probe’s imminent end proved wrong.

  1. I cant believe they are still discussing this non sense, talk about fake news for the goy. Vladimir Putin is illuminati, so is Hilary Clinton, so is Donald Trump, so is Justin Trudeau, etc, etc. Donald Trumps grandpa made his money in the smut and pedo porn business, Hilary Clinton is a grand dame in the illuminati, Justin Trudeau is Justin Trudeau, the words out of his mouth are enough to make one physically ill, and Vladimir Putin is a member of the Ur lodge of freemasonry. Osama Bin Laden was a freemason also. These people are all owned by devils and demons, and their minds are not their own. Its all a game of deception, read the bible if you want to learn about these wolves and the days ahead, and more importantly salvation for you and yours!
