Some in media can't get over not finding any Russian collusion to explain Trump's victory

NY Times:

Memo Is Salvo in G.O.P. Plan to Move Focus Off Russia

Republicans are pushing the narrative that biased officials set out to sabotage President Trump. At the same time, Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel running the Russia inquiry, is accelerating his work.
So far the only Russian collusion in the 2016 election was done by a team paid by the Clinton campaign and the DNC.  If there is any serious evidence of collusion by the Trump team Mueller has yet to disclose it.  That is likely because there is none.

The memo is about serious abuses by the FBI and DOJ of the FISA courts to spy on a political opponent.  That is not a small thing or a distraction.  It is a serious abuse of power to use one candidate's opposition research so you can spy on the other.  If Trump did something like that the liberals would be up in arms and threaten impeachment.

What I see is a media that is so locked into to something that isn't so, it sees real corruption as a distraction from its own paranoia about Trump and Russia. 

They are like Reagan's joke about the kid whose parents are tired of him pestering them for a horse that they box up some manure and put it under the tree for him.  He gets all excited and starts tearing through house sure that the manure is evidence that the horse is in there somewhere.
