Description

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russia has wrapped, and Attorney General William Barr's letter to Congress has been delivered. Michelle, Ross and David debate whether there really was "no collusion," if the media oversold the scandal and what should happen next. Then, is it time to abolish the Electoral College? The columnists disagree. For background reading, visit nytimes.com/theargument.

Has it occurred to any of the antiTrumpers that his behavior toward the Russians could also just as easily and reasonably as the actions of an innocent man? Given the much tougher stance that Trump has taken against Russia, much tougher than Obama, then by the logic of the left, Obama was the colluder? Remember, "the 1980s want their foreign policy back?"

I don't understand. we haven't seen the Mueller Report yet. So how do we know whether it was botched? let alone who botched it.

Biggest problem with Electoral College are winner-take-all allocation instead of divided proportional ly on ratio of votes. Having different rules for different states is foggy process

The Left will never be satisfied nor accept the truth of the report. The strength of a conspiracy theory is that it is unfalsifiable. Another example of the insanity of the Left. I would also like to point out the blatant lack of emotional self-control on Michele's part. She has called people "Hacks", with whom she dislikes or disagrees. The constant Ad-hominen is a clear signal flare of the lack of strength in her arguments. Keep up the control and thoughtful rebuttals Ross. "No Collusion" is a perfectly reasonable response haha.

SMSimon Umm... I don't watch the news, let alone Fox News. I don't have time for TV. I wouldn't feel the need to gloat if the Leftist media had done their job as self-professed objective journalists. And lastly, Mueller was quick to call out BuzzFees for their incorrect claims. I'm sure he wouldn't be shy to correct Barr if something was incorrect. Presidents get to pick AGs... So what? The summary gets to the point of the issue. I don't need to recite the entire Star Wars saga to give you the gist of the story. And as to the SDNY, as any normal and sane person would say, I'll wait till that time comes before making any idiotic predictions or wishes. DON'T STOP! BELIEVING! though.

Jason Huntley We haven't even seen the report, beyond Drumpf's handpicked AG's 4 page summary of a HUGE report. I think I'll take my chances that we haven't heard the whole story yet. Plus I'm so glad you came here to gloat, but I sure hope you won't be too disappointed when the Southern District of New York puts the entire Drumpf family (plus Jared) away for a long, long time. Cheers Fox News sheep!
