How about "FBI Chief Confirms Ongoing Investigation of Trump Campaign for Possible Collusion with Russia"?

Seems kinda newsy to me.

You mean an investigation that hasn't turned up any evidence since July?

I ask, and I know I won't get an answer, what do you think of the fact that Ted Kennedy tried to get the Soviets to collude with him to get elected? Of course, you could put that off on one guy, but the entire Democratic party lionized him when he passed away--but now that party is chasing will o' the wisps about Trump and the Russians.

Interesting juxtaposition, no?
