126 Verified Contacts Between Russians And Trump Campaign [View all]

Robert Mueller testified that his investigation found 126 separate contacts between the Trump campaign and the Russians, including multiple instances where Manafort (Trump's campaign manager) passed sensitive polling/campaign information to the Russians. Yet he also testified that he found no evidence of collusion. Could someone please explain how this is possible? It seems to me that 126 contacts, and the passing of "insider" information from within the campaign that could ONLY be used by the Russians in order to help the Trump campaign achieve its goals, is the very DEFINITION of collusion.

Also, if there was no collusion, then why was Trump running around actively obstructing the investigation? Why was he making statements like, "To Sessions) You were supposed to protect me." Protect him from what? A crime he didn't commit?

To me, that's like saying he found a dead body of a person Trump wanted dead, he found a smoking gun with Trump's fingerprints all over it, the ballistics all matched exactly, and he had evidence that Trump was in the vicinity at the time of the murder, but that he found no evidence that Trump committed the murder. What ELSE could he possibly have needed?

That's really my only problem with what Mueller did. I understand that he had one hand tied behind his back by the DOJ, but I think he had more than enough evidence to say that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.
