Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings and the accompanying circus that came with it pushed to the side stories of Russia collusion.
At least for a month or so.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes is back at it, but this time he makes a major concession.
Given everything we know about the Trump campaign, *if* someone had contacted them with a concrete plan to illegally cheat during the election, do we think they would have said no?

Given everything we know about MSNBC, *if* someone concocted a gangbang party story from 1982, do we think they would have run with it? https://t.co/Adz1TfiXKa

One person wondered if Hayes was “ten years-old”…
"Well, maybe they didn't, BUT THEY WOULDA!"
What are you, ten years-old? https://t.co/ZrKzDbAbXx

More on the Russia probe, per Daily Caller:
A Democratic senator outsourced parts of the investigation into possible Trump-Russia collusion to a former Senate staffer with links to George Soros and Fusion GPS, according to a New Yorker report.
The New Yorker reports the unidentified senator contacted Daniel Jones, a former Senate Intelligence Committee staffer, around March 2017 to review data regarding a possible link between the computer servers of the Trump Organization and a Russian bank called Alfa Bank.
Jones, who worked under California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein when she chaired the intelligence panel, had just formed a non-profit group called the Democracy Integrity Project. The organization worked closely with Fusion GPS and former British spy Christopher Steele, the tag-team duo that produced the Democrat-funded dossier accusing the Trump campaign of colluding with the Kremlin.
Jones’s operation was also funded by a small group of billionaires, including left-wing philanthropist George Soros. Jones told the FBI in March 2017 that between 7 and 10 billionaires had put up $50 million to continue an investigation into Russian meddling in elections.
