While many Democrats continue to argue that there might still be evidence that Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election, there is at least one Democrat leader who will actually tell the truth about the situation. In a Sunday morning conversation with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), put a quick end to any talk about “collusion” with Russia when he answered a question as definitively as he could…
George Stephanopoulos: Do you agree with this conclusion that the president has reached that there was no evidence of collusion?
Joe Manchin: You know, we haven’t seen any of that whatsoever, George. We’ve been looking and showing everything they possibly have. That has not led to that. We have ultimate — all of us have the utmost respect for Bob Mueller, both on the Democrat and Republican side. I believe he’s going to do his job thoroughly. We will accept his recommendation and pathway forward and I think that’s extremely important that we all agree this is the right person, the right time to do this type of work.
No evidence “WHATSOEVER” folks. They’ve looked at “everything they possibly have” and they haven’t seen anything that resembles evidence of collusion.
This is not some partisan right-wing radio host, this is a veteran Democrat Senator who is on the Senate Intelligence Committee and has been privy to almost every aspect of the investigation.
Manchin’s word should be enough to silence the liberals who continue to slander the President, but it won’t be. In fact, most of the Democrats who appeared on the Sunday news talk shows this morning, were still arguing that Trump must have done something wrong, even though Comey destroyed most of those conspiracy theories this past week, and Manchin has now confirmed that there is “NO EVIDENCE” of any wrongdoing.
This is the hyper-partisan America we live in today – where Democrats argue that the President must have done something wrong simply because they don’t like him.
