After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my "collusion with the Russians," nobody has been able to show any proof. Sad!

CNN’s ‘bombshell’ revelation this morning, courtesy of anonymous sources of course, seems to be that Trump suggested the nation’s top intel officials should tell the truth to the public about the Russian collusion narrative, namely that there was none. Shocking.
Of course, for anyone who has been paying attention, CNN’s “Russian collusion” narrative imploded about two weeks ago when Comey testified publicly before the Senate Intelligence Committee and confirmed numerous times that Trump was never under investigation. And while that could all change, the only actual ‘facts’ we have at the moment on ‘Russian collusion’ (i.e. Comey’s testimony) would suggest that the FBI never thought there was a reason to investigate Trump. Moreover, we presume that the President suggesting that intel officials tell the truth under oath doesn’t qualify as a criminal offense…but that’s pure speculation on our part.
In any event, here is CNN trying to spin their latest, anonymously-sourced, nothing burger into a sinister plot:
Two of the nation’s top intelligence officials told Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team and Senate investigators, in separate meetings last week, that President Donald Trump suggested they say publicly there was no collusion between his campaign and the Russians, according to multiple sources.
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Adm. Mike Rogers described their interactions with the President about the Russia investigation as odd and uncomfortable, but said they did not believe the President gave them orders to interfere, according to multiple sources familiar with their accounts.
