I haven't really been keeping up with any of it other than the tidbits I read on here,
is there a link to an article where a mainstream media outlet has said that Trump absolutely and undoubtedly colluded with Russia? An article than leaves no room for any doubt that it is 100% fact that he conspired with Russia to be elected?

I keep seeing this false narrative that members on ATS are somehow infatuated with Obama and consider him the greatest thing since sliced bread. It seems to be largely a figment of some of Trump's supporters' imaginations in order to juxtapose against their own, real infatuation with Trump.
Maybe it's them projecting their own feelings toward Trump onto others in order to justify their own cult like behavior? Because I have never seen anyone defend Obama like people defend Trump on these boards. Call people out for deflecting to him in order to justify the actions and words of Trump? Sure, but cult-like admiration? Hardly.
I think Obama was just as bad as Trump, a lot of people around here seem to think that an impossibility, it's either one or the other and no inbetween. A pretty extreme view, nothing but black and white with no middle ground.
Pretty sad that some have been brainwashed into such an extremist viewpoint.
That explains a lot.
No because it didn't happen.
Let me put my cards on the table: The counterintelligence investigation of Donald Trump was kicked off by not one, not two, but multiple SIGINT reports which set off alarm bells inside our Intelligence Community. This has been publicly known, in a general way, for some time. A little over a year ago, the Guardian reported, based on multiple intelligence sources, that the lead was taken by Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ – Britain’s NSA), which “first became aware in late 2015 of suspicious ‘interactions’ between figures connected to Trump and known or suspected Russian agents, a source close to UK intelligence said. This intelligence was passed to the U.S. as part of a routine exchange of information.”
The official went on: “We had several reports in late 2015 and early 2016, mostly from Second and Third Party”—that being spy-speak for NSA’s foreign friends—“but by the spring of 2016 we had plenty of our own collection.” These reports, based on multiple intercepts, were tightly compartmented, that is, restricted to a small group of counterintelligence officials, given their obvious sensitivity, but they painted an indelible picture of a compromised GOP nominee. “The Kremlin talked about Trump like he was their boy, and their comments weren’t always flattering.”
In response to urgent FBI requests for more information, NSA rose to the occasion, and by the time that Donald Trump officially accepted the Republican nomination in mid-July 2016, “We knew we had a Russian agent on our hands,” as a senior NSA official put it to me recently
“Trump and his kids knew what they were doing, and who they were doing it with,” the official explained.
