MSNBC’s Katy Tur: Mueller Already Found ‘Quite a Bit’ on Trump


MSNBC host Katy Tur suggested Thursday that it does not matter whether Robert Mueller's investigation finds evidence of direct collusion between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russia because the special counsel has already uncovered "quite a bit" of dirt on the president.

"Let's just put on the screen everybody who's been found guilty or already indicted in the Mueller investigations. Lots of faces, lots of pleas, and lots of indictments," Tur said, pointing out that Trump affiliates such as Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort, and Michael Flynn have been found guilty of various crimes.

"They've already come up with quite a bit, regardless of whether or not there is direct collusion or conspiracy found between Donald Trump and his campaign, and the Russians," Tur added.

Other panelists agreed with Tur, pointing out that Mueller may already have significant evidence against Trump that he has not yet released. NBC News correspondent Pete Williams noted that "there is no such regulation" requiring that Mueller immediately tell Congress if he finds something that might merit impeachment.

Mueller has yet to say that his investigation has come to a close, despite weeks of speculation in the news media. Although he has indicted a number of Trump affiliates, Mueller has so far been silent on whether he has evidence against the president himself engaging in collusion with the Russians or criminal activity.

Trump has said that the public should see Mueller's report, once it is released.

"Let it come out, let people see it," the president told reporters on Wednesday. "Let's see whether or not it's legit."
