Manchin: We Haven’t Seen Any Evidence of Collusion ‘Whatsoever’


Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W. Va.) said Sunday that he has seen no evidence of collusion "whatsoever" between the Trump campaign and Russian entities.

Manchin was interviewed by ABC's George Stephanopoulos on Sunday morning regarding former FBI director James Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, which Manchin sits on, which delved into the investigations into the Trump campaign and Russian entities.

Stephanopoulos asked Manchin if he felt there was collusion, which President Donald Trump has repeatedly denied.

"Do you agree with this conclusion that the president has reached that there was no evidence of collusion?" Stephanopoulos asked.

"You know, we haven't seen any of that whatsoever, George," Manchin said. "We've been looking and showing everything that they possibly have. That has not led to that."

Manchin went on to praise special counsel Robert Mueller for his integrity in the Russia investigation and said he would accept Mueller's conclusion.
