[Ed. — Tough sell.]
Is this really from today, not from the campaign trail in Texas last year? I can’t believe any Democrat would have the stones to double down on collusion the morning after we find out that not only won’t Trump be indicted for conspiring with Russia, none of his inner circle will either.
Beto O'Rourke this morning in SC: You have a president, who in my opinion beyond a shadow of a doubt, sought to, however ham-handedly, collude with the Russian government, a foreign power to undermine and influence our elections.

Yes, right, we haven’t seen the report yet and so it’s possible that Mueller believes Trump conspired with Russia but declined to indict him due to the DOJ policy that prevents sitting presidents from being formally charged. Ed aptly explained earlier why that’s unlikely. It would mean that no one higher-up in the campaign, including the participants in the famous Trump Tower meeting with the Russian lawyer, committed the crime of conspiracy except the president. How probable is that? Unless Mueller has Trump on tape scheming with Putin about Hillary’s emails, he’s obviously going to be cleared of the charge O’Rourke makes here.
