New York Times writer David Brooks is no fan of President Donald Trump.

At times in the recent past, he has used words like “infantilist” and

Brooks has referred to the presidency as a “project” with a “talent vacuum.”

So when the now-New York Times writer pens an op-ed urging his liberal readers to cool their collective jets about finding a connection between the president and Russia that would lead to his ouster, it may be worth their time to read.

Brooks cut his journalistic teeth at the Wall Street Journal in the days when President Bill Clinton and his first lady, Hillary Clinton, were under investigated for their involvement in a failed Arkansas real estate development before they went to Washington.

The scandal was called Whitewater and along with the various other scandals – First Lady Hillary Clinton’s firing of the entire staff of the White House travel office, her dealings while at the Rose Law Firm while in Little Rock, the suicide of White House Counsel Vince Foster – was investigated by Special Counsel Kenneth Starr whose dogged determination eventually led to the “Monica-gate” perjury that led to the impeachment of the president.

As scandals, let alone impeachable ones, go Brooks remains unimpressed.

“It has to be confessed that, at least so far, the Whitewater scandal was far more substantive than the Russia-collusion scandal now gripping Washington. There may be a giant revelation still to come. But as the Trump-Russia story has evolved, it is striking how little evidence there is that any underlying crime occurred — that there was any actual collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and the Russians.”

The op-ed is a break with the Times stance, which has helped lead the charge in opposition to Trump throughout the president’s run for the White House and throughout the first months of his presidency.

Brooks isn’t alone – Democrats like California Sen. Diane Feinstein and Rep. Maxine Waters agree.

Feinstein told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, the “rumors and newspaper stories” do not amount to evidence.

Waters, who dedicated herself to driving Trump to impeachment, admitted on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program that there was no evidence linking the president to Russia.

No less than former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has testified before the Senate that indicated there was no evidence of collusion.

Three ongoing investigations, however, continue.
