Trump's team had over 100 contacts with Russian-linked officials, according to think tank analysis

Members of President Donald Trump's campaign and transition team had more than 100 contacts with Russian-linked officials, according to an analysis by the Center for American Progress think tank and its Moscow Project.

CAP, a liberal think tank, used publicly available court documents and reporting to tally up the number of contacts with Russian-linked officials, which includes those with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin and others tied to Russian intelligence, banks and politicians.

The organizations counted each meeting and message as a separate contact.

The number of contacts was raised to 101 this week, according to CAP, after it was reported that Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, a former campaign aide, shared polling data with Manafort's former Russian business partner Konstantin Kilimnik.

Yeah, it's normal for a Presidential campaign to have contact with representatives of a hostile foreign adversary over 100 times. But remember: NO COLLUSION!

1. And they lied about all of them, right?

They initially denied any contacts, if I recall correctly.
So many people, so many lies. How could so many lie about the same thing if there was not a conspiracy going on?
