Following the release on Friday of the Mueller report, in which was indicated that the Special Counsel would not recommend new indictments, many democrats are now calling for further investigations into Trump-Russia alleged dealings.
As reported by CNN, in a town hall in Charlston, South Carolina, the Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke said that he believes “beyond the shadow of a doubt” President Donald Trump colluded with Russia.
“You have a president, who, in my opinion, beyond the shadow of a doubt, sought to — however ham-handedly — collude with the Russian government — a foreign power — to undermine and influence our elections,” O’Rourke said at a town hall in Charleston, South Carolina.
“If you are wondering about collusion then when you saw the President of the United States standing next to leader of Russia on that stage in Helsinki, Finland, defending him and taking his word for it against our own intelligence community in our country, in (conservative columnist) George Will’s words not mine, that is collusion in action. Ultimately, I believe this will be decided at the ballot box in 2020 by you, by me, by all of us in this country,” he added.
