U.S. lawmakers ready arguments over Mueller report

Sunday marked the third day that U.S. politicians and pundits debated a highly-anticipated report that very few of them have actually seen.

And many have already staked firm positions on its core question.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE RANKING MEMBER JIM JORDAN (R-OH) SAYING: "To date not one bit of evidence to show any type of coordination, collusion, conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the election." (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN ADAM SCHIFF (D-CA) SAYING: "There is ample evidence, and indeed there is, of collusion of people in the Trump campaign with the Russians." America is waiting for a glimpse into the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into whether Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government to win the 2016 presidential election, and whether, as president, he tried to obstruct an FBI investigation into those allegations.

The Justice Department on Friday announced Mueller had concluded the investigation and Attorney General William Barr is working through the weekend to deliver a promised summary of that report to Congress.

Cameras tracked the comings and goings of Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to the Justice Department Saturday and Sunday.

The results of that summary will be a defining moment for perhaps the core question that has loomed over the Trump administration from day one.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING (MARCH 22, 2019): "There was no collusion.

There was no obstruction.

Everybody knows it." Even before Trump's inauguration in 2017, U.S. intelligence agencies concluded that Moscow tried to use e-mails stolen from Democratic operatives to tilt the presidential race toward Trump.

Democrats point to instances such as 2016 meeting between Donald Trump's son, son-in-law, and campaign manager with a Kremlin-linked lawyer as evidence that Trump's campaign was happy to get help from Russia.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN ADAM SCHIFF (D-CA) SAYING: "Secret meetings at Trump Tower with Russian delegations with the promise of dirt on Hillary Clinton, the provision of polling data to someone linked to Russian intelligence by Trump's own campaign chair, I could go on and on and on." Republicans, on the other hand, seized on the statement that there would be no further indictments from the special counsel's office as an exoneration.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE RANKING MEMBER JIM JORDAN (R-OH) SAYING: "I've seen no evidence of any kind of coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia to impact the election." One thing Democrats and Republicans in Congress seem to agree on: the need to make as much of the report public as possible.
