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."
In this week's UpFront, Hassan challenges author and Harvard professor Steven Pinker on his new book, "Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism and Progress," in which he argues that data shows the world is becoming a better place.
And in the Arena, journalist Afua Hirsch and Claire Fox, author and director of the U.K.-based think-tank the Academy of Ideas, discuss racism in the United Kingdom, and the kind of conversations needed to address it.
