See It: Photo Reveals Trump Wrote 'THERE WAS NO COLUSION' in Sharpie on Typed Remarks About Russian Meddling Claim
As President Donald Trump delivered remarks designed to diffuse the firestorm around his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, eagle-eyed photographers snapped pictures of his notes.
The photos show Trump scrawled a seeming reminder to himself that he (allegedly) didn't collude with Russia:

The words "THERE WAS NO COLUSION" can be seen written in Trump's signature hand-writing style, complete with his reliance on a Sharpie to write the note. Yes, he misspelled the word "collusion."
The widely-panned conference with Putin left Trump attempting to claim Tuesday that he accidentally said the word "would" instead of "wouldn't" in reference to Russia's meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.
But even with this supposed correction, the fact remains Trump made repeated statements blatantly dismissing the U.S. intelligence community in front of the Russian president.
