“suggesting that the Kremlin would never trust someone who tweets like the President”
Jonathan Turley of George Washington University is not a conservative, but he has been a leading voice of reason over the last couple of years.

Law prof doesn’t buy Trump-Russia ‘collusion’ narrative. Here’s why…
A George Washington University professor recently lobbed some bombs at President Donald Trump and Russia collusion narrative, suggesting that the Kremlin would never trust someone who tweets like the President.
GWU law school professor Jonathan Turley recently published an op-ed in The Hill calling the theory “incoherent.”
“With the approaching final report from special counsel Robert Mueller, it may be useful to consider the current state of the collusion case,” Jonathan Turley, the Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington University, in Washington, D.C. wrote.
The op-ed came just days before Trump blasted Congress’ “partisan investigation” during his State of the Union address on Tuesday. Congress’ investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia are separate from the special counsel’s investigation, which the president calls a “witch hunt.”
“First, there is the question of why Russian intelligence would tell the notoriously unpredictable and impulsive Donald Trump about one of its riskiest international operations in decades,” Turley argued. “Russian spymasters are not known for putting entire operations, or the future of Russian foreign relations for that matter, just one tweet away from utter destruction.”
In addition to claiming that Russia would never have trusted a guy who tweets like Trump, Turley took several other approaches to discredit the Trump/Russia collusion theory.
“If there was such collusion, why were Trump associates like Roger Stone or Alexander Nix, who led consulting company Cambridge Analytica that worked for the Trump campaign, seeking contacts with access to the information?” the professor asked.
