Turley: Current Case for Trump-Russia Collusion 'Does Not Hold Together Very Well'
Constitutional law attorney Jonathan Turley was taken on by MSNBC's Ari Melber over his argument that there is still not a compelling case to be made for Trump-Russia collusion.
Melber said a "logical hole" in Turley's argument is that Special Counsel Robert Mueller could have much more evidence than the public knows about.
The George Washington University professor said on "The Story" Tuesday that there indeed could be more to the story when it comes to the Trump campaign and Russia's meddling in the 2016 election.
“I’ve been skeptical about the collusion and obstruction claims for the last year. I just don’t see the evidence....in terms of the collusion, it’s all a bit implausible based on the evidence we have.” Jonathan Turley on @FoxNews

Turley said his argument is only based on the evidence released so far, but many pundits are using the same evidence to argue that Mueller's case is a "cinch" or that other "bombshells" are imminent.
"The lack of knowing that hasn't stopped many people," he said.
Turley said the collusion case that many are presenting "does not hold together very well" and that he's not swayed by the reports of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and the boasts of George Papadopoulos.
"This is not particularly compelling evidence and it is indeed quite implausible when you look at the dates and what the meetings were," he said.
He joked that maybe Mueller has pictures of a "shirtless Putin in the Oval Office like 'Saturday Night Live,'" but he is still waiting to see such damning evidence against the president.
