Trump, Russia and the Mueller Report: Is it Really Case Closed?
A two-year investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into possible collusion between U.S. President Donald Trump's campaign and the Russian government before the 2016 U.S. presidential election has come to an end. The conclusion, according to a summary submitted to U.S. Congress by Attorney General William Barr, is "no collusion."
But does this completely exonerate Trump? "I've assessed all the evidence to date for a Trump-Russia conspiracy. I've been arguing for two years that it's not there. Mueller apparently felt the same," says journalist Aaron Mate, a contributing writer with The Nation.
But David Cay Johnston, the author of "It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America," wants Trump to release the full report. "Donald Trump has the authority to make every word of this report public ... Why isn't he using his power to do so? That's all we need to know. Unless we see every word of that report, why aren't we seeing it when Donald Trump has the power to release a report that he claims exonerates him," asked Johnston, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist.
Aaron Mate and David Cay Johnston debate the response to the Mueller report in this week's "Arena" segment of "Upfront."

A look at the #MeToo campaign, which has been criticized for excluding certain voices, is being received outside of the West.
In 2006, the slogan #MeToo started as a movement by American activist Tarana Burke as a way to show solidarity with victims of sexual assault. That slogan went viral overnight in the wake of Hollywood's Harvey Weinstein scandal last October, which prompted women around the world to break a lot of the silence around sexual assault and harassment and began to share their stories, with more than 12 million posts on Facebook in just 24 hours.
