Law student puts Pelosi on the spot at CNN townhall: Shouldn’t there be proof of Russian collusion by now?

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was hit with a direct question right out of the gate at a CNN town hall Wednesday night with the Democrat, being asked where’s the evidence of Russian collusion?

Joshua Gonzalez, a law student at Georgetown University, fired the first question of the night.

“If Trump actually colluded with the Russians, why isn’t he found guilty of it after a year of investigation?” Gonzalez inquired. “Wouldn’t there be some kind of concrete proof by now?”

Ignoring the reality that Washington leaks like a sieve anytime there’s negative news on President Donald Trump, Pelosi claimed we wouldn’t know what Mueller’s probe has produced.

“Well you know there is an investigation going on under counsel [Robert] Mueller,” Pelosi replied. “And that is where — we wouldn’t have any idea what is going on in that, and nor should we know what’s going on in that investigation.”

With Mueller’s investigation having just passed the one-year mark, Pelosi displayed patience in saying the process — to destroy Trump? — needs more time.

“But it takes time, and I trust counsel Mueller and his work,” she told the law student.

CNN host Chris Cuomo chimed in to note a “problem,” that being if Mueller waits too long to release his findings, DOJ guidelines would require him to wait until after the November election — it’s not clear if the liberal host realized he effectively exposed the Democratic Party’s agenda.

“Do you believe that Mueller should put out whatever he has before the election to give voters some sense of where he is?” Cuomo asked Pelosi, setting the stage for what may be an unprecedented move.

Mueller was appointed under a narrow Justice Department regulation for special counsels,  Section 600.8(c), which states that he “shall provide the Attorney General with a confidential report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions reached by the Special Counsel.”

Pelosi looked past this requirement to say, “Well, I think that Mueller should do what he thinks is right.”

But then, this is the party that has a unique attitude about rules, preferring to make them up as they go along.
