Video: "The Mueller Report: Glenn Greenwald vs. David Cay Johnston on Trump-Russia Ties, Obstruction & More"

The Justice Department has released a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report detailing [alledged] Russian meddling in the 2016 election, the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia and President Trump’s attempts to impede the special counsel’s investigation. The report states the campaign “expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts,” but Mueller concluded, “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” Mueller also outlined at least 10 instances where Trump attempted to impede the special counsel’s investigation, but Mueller came to no definitive conclusion on whether Trump broke the law by obstructing justice. In the report, Mueller suggests that this is a decision for Congress to make. We host a debate on the report’s findings between two Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists: Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept and David Cay Johnston, who has covered Donald Trump since the 1980s. His most recent book is “It’s Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America.”

"High crimes and misdemeanors" is all that matters. Everything David Cay Johnston is putting forth isn't any of that. The other thing is that David's case rests entirely on the idea that Russia is the enemy. That's his opinion. It is not a fact. I do not consider Russia my enemy, far from it. Why did Trump lie and deny? To save his ass from people out to get him based upon made-up stuff. Emails weren't missing? They were wiped from the server's drive.
