Donald Trump must have been wearing the carpet bare in his White House bedroom late at night as he plotted to find ways of escaping Robert Mueller’s laser-like beam. The special counsel says nothing, writes nothing, lets his team of crack attorneys release nothing. It must be maddening for the president. Then, POTUS clutched onto this weak ledge of escape.
The Senate Intelligence committee chair Richard Burr (R-NC) told CBS News that his committee had not facts indicating direct collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia. The president gloated “no evidence of collusion:”
‘The Senate Intelligence Committee: THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIA!’
Burr said that “we don”t have anything:”
‘If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don’t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia.’
Later, that became “direct evidence.” The lead minority member Senator Mark Warner (D–VA) disagreed with the committee chair’s statements that there was no collusion. Instead in a rare disagreement, Warner said that the Senate investigation was still continuing. There were a number of key witnesses left to interview.
‘Respectfully, I disagree. I’m not going to get into any conclusions I’ve reached because my basis of this has been that I’m not going to reach any conclusion until we finish the investigation. And we still have a number of the key witnesses to come back.’
