On Sunday, Attorney General William Barr released bare findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

The four-page released detailed that President Donald Trump and his campaign did not conspire with Russia.

She said that just because Trump did not commit a chargeable crime does not mean he is in the clear just yet and that he could still be impeached. 

“There could still be a base for impeachment here even though it does not technically meet the strict requirements of violating a federal statute,” she said.

The View audience goes wild when Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman get schooled on democratic socialism

Published

on

Both conservatives on "The View" warned of the dangers of democratic socialism, but co-host Joy Behar drew a rowdy response with her impassioned defense of wealth distribution.

The panelists were discussing Sen. Elizabeth Warren's climb in the polls, and Meghan McCain speculated about the possibility of the Massachusetts Democrat heading into a contested Democratic convention with Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders.
