FROM THE RIGHT

“After two days and almost six hours of high-stakes public testimony, I’m struck by the total lack of any compelling claims supporting the ‘big’ collusion narrative.” -- DAVID FRENCH, NATIONAL REVIEW

Mr. French, who has proved to be a fierce critic of the president from the right, sees no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia after Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s testimony on Tuesday. Instead, he notes, the questions from the Senate Intelligence Committee approach a narrower focus about the president’s decision to dismiss James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, “questions that are important but far less historically consequential than any claim that a president or his attorney general are traitors to their country.”
