Actually that was always the question: whether the Trump campaign had colluded in a criminal way with Russians. That was what was charged. That was the main reason for the Mueller probe. You are trying to redefine collusion so it does not require any explicit coordination or illegal conspiracy. Instead, the mere encouragement of the public release of information becomes an infraction meriting impeachment. Only after the Mueller report completely exonerates Trump and his campaign of criminal acts that could fall under the term, collusion, do you suddenly say, just kidding, it was really never about anything actually illegal, because collusion means cheering the release of information. But is welcoming, encouraging or aiding the release of information even improper, much less a high crime and misdemeanor? Americans believe it was important to hear that information and learn more of the truth about the candidate. News organizations reported that information to us. All guilty of collusion under your definition?
