Rep. Jim Jordan, the top-ranking Republican on the House Oversight Committee, put out a tweet that said bluntly: “There was no collusion.”

And on that, he’s got the pulse of most of the politically aware of the nation.

After all, Democrats started hinting at a Donald Trump-illegal-collusion-with-Russia possibility back in Barack Obama days, before this president even had time to warm his White House seat.

Here we are, two years later — and lookie here: No collusion.

There is, however, plenty of smoke and mirrors to go around.

“Here’s what we know,” Jordan tweeted, above a clip of his recent interview on “Meet the Press” on NBC.

And on the clip, Jordan said this: “Never forget what happened here. The Clinton campaign paid the law firm Perkins Coie who hired Fusion GPS who hired a foreigner and what’d that foreigner do — talk to a couple of Russians who put this dossier together who our FBI used to go get the warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.”

Good points.

Here’s another, also from Jordan, also made during his “Meet the Press” chat with Chuck Todd.

“What I know is there is not one bit of evidence to know any type of coordination, collusion, conspiracy whatsoever between the Trump campaign and Russia to impact the election,” he said. “There is all kinds of evidence to show that the Clinton campaign worked with Russians to impact the elections, via that whole thing I just described where they fired the law firm who hired Fusion, who hired Christopher Steele, who communicated with Russians and put together the fake dossier.”

Honestly, it’s high time the Democrats, the anti-Trumpers of the nation, the so-called deep state forces, the investigative officials, and so on — it’s high time all these players either show their collusion cards, or move on. America’s headed into 2020 elections. Can’t the left find a new political platform, one that might actually make truthful sense? As Jordan suggested: Collusion just ain’t sticking. Unless, of course, you turn tables and look the Clintons’ way.
