This article by Patrick Howley originally appeared at The American Spectator:

Top Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said Thursday that they have not yet seen any evidence that the Donald Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 election, even as hearings meant to probe the unsubstantiated claims dominate Capitol Hill.

“I think, uh. I haven’t seen the evidence because it hasn’t been made public,” Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire told The American Spectator during recess in a Foreign Relations Committee hearing featuring Madeleine Albright. “So I’m waiting to see what the intelligence committees come up with.”

“Um, the investigation is ongoing,” Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia told The American Spectator, declining to confirm that he has seen any evidence.

“Well, I think there’s a bunch of really really suspicious contacts” Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico told The American Spectator. “And the timing, and the contacts, it doesn’t look good for them. It looks very very suspicious.”

Pressed on evidence, Udall confirmed that he has not seen definitive proof. “There is significant evidence that there were a number of contacts, and the question is, what was said? It looks very suspicious.” Democrats have been focusing on the fact that Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a Trump campaign surrogate, met with the Russian ambassador at the Republican National Convention at an event set up by the Obama State Department and co-sponsored by the Heritage Foundation.

“That’s why they’re having the committee hearings today, and I haven’t seen the results of the committee hearings yet,” Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware said. “And I haven’t seen the results of the committee hearings yet.”

“I’m going to my hearing,” Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey told The American Spectator, laughing nervously.

Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, would not answer The American Spectator‘s repeated questions about the lack of evidence, even though he stated in the hearing in no uncertain terms that “Russia sought to undermine and interfere in our elections.”

Both the Senate Foreign Relations and Intelligence Committees convened hearings Thursday to investigate the Trump-Russia suspicions, which so far have not been backed up by a single piece of incontrovertible evidence.

Nancy Pelosi Will Run for Speaker Again If Democrats Hold the House

If appointed again, Crazy Nancy would serve as speaker until 2023.

Everyone’s favorite Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, has said she will seek another term as speaker if the Democrats maintain their House majority.

She declared her intention in answering a question from CNN’s Jake Tapper, adding that “we [also] have to win the Senate.”

The USA Today noted that this comes after a challenge by “several members of the Democratic caucus” who represent more conservative constituents and think her speakership is an “impediment to the party’s electoral chances.” Pelosi is also being challenged in the California 12th District race itself by a Pakistani-born “democratic socialist” named Shahid Buttar, whom Pelosi has been doing nothing but ignoring.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also speaking with Jake Tapper, said she would support “the most progressive candidate” for speaker.

“I am committed to making sure that we have the most progressive candidate there. But, if Speaker Pelosi is that most progressive candidate, then I will be supporting her,” she said.

Pelosi has served in the US House since 1987 and is currently in her second stint as speaker. Her first speakership lasted from 2007 to 2011. She struck a deal back in late 2018 to limit her current speakership to four years, so we’ll in all likelihood see her in the post until 2023.
