    Give it time....give it time

    The Senate Committee is speaking right now. They say they are still investigating collusion

    Far from a "nothing burger" it seems

    They have all the time they need. I don't control that shit. Nor do I have any opinion except Innocent until proven guilty.
    That is the foundation of our criminal system.

    Trump pushed Comey to state that he was not involved in the Russian election tampering
    He fired Comey for refusing to say so

    It seems after months of investigation, the Senate committee is unwilling to rule it out

    So then there exists nothing, and you're going to just believe what you want, evidence and facts be damned. Got it.


    What would it take to change your opinion to one that Trump and the GOP colluded with Russia?

    An indictment of criminality.

    So merely an indictment would convince you that Trump colluded with Russia? Not a conviction, but just an indictment. Are you sure?

    An indictment would cast doubt and a conviction would end the discussion.

    You want to skip the indictment phase & proceed straight to the sentencing phase.

    Very anti American

    So an indictment doesn't satisfy you that collusion occurred. So why did you say it was one post before, then move the goalposts in the very next post?

    I think you're just making this shit up as you go.
