Why do Trump supporters get away with saying "there is no evidence of collusion"?

There is plenty of evidence of collusion: the indictments of Trump advisers, all the lying about contacts with Russians, the meeting in Trump Tower, the sucking up to Putin, the list goes on. Are these things not evidence of possible collusion? They may not be actual "proof" (yet) of collusion, but these things certainly can be called evidence. I think everyone saying there is no evidence of collusion needs to be called out on this, including Trump during interviews.

1. Part of it is there is no such crime as "collusion."

 

Since that is the case der fluegelheinie and his supporters can claim ad nauseam that there is no evidence of / no proof of / nobody has been charged with or convicted of collusion etc etc etc

"Conspiracy" is another matter.

3. We study and analyze facts

They make up facts.

4. Just how intelligent ...

There's your answer.

5. They don't mind lying with impunity.

 

They don't mind and the appreciate the philosophy of Goebbels. Tell the lie enough times and it becomes truth.

6. Truthiness

Their support of Trump is not subject to reason, logic, or facts. They feel it must be true that there is no collusion, and it's a total waste of your precious time explaining to them about all the indictments, guilty pleas, and one incarceration. Truth has nothing to do with it, and insisting on facts will only get you called names.
