To be honest, we’ve been waiting for the candidate who has asked his supporters to “shape him” into the candidate they want to actually take a solid policy stand on something. Beto O’Rourke almost always equivocates (as he did on third-trimester abortions), though he seemed pretty serious about taking down the existing sections of border wall if elected.
So good for him for being brave enough to stand up at this time and declare that he believes beyond a doubt that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke said Saturday that he believes “beyond the shadow of a doubt” President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election, stopping short of saying Trump should face impeachment proceedings.
“You have a president, who, in my opinion, beyond the shadow of a doubt, sought to — however ham-handedly — collude with the Russian government — a foreign power — to undermine and influence our elections,” O’Rourke said at a town hall in Charleston, South Carolina.
If it was done “ham-handedly,” wouldn’t Robert Mueller have found plenty of evidence of collusion?
Good. Let him run on that message. And everything else he believes. https://t.co/f0ytAoT35z

Please, please, please keep this narrative going. It’s worked so very well so far.

Good. I hope he runs on that. That’s a sure winner

What tops the contents of the Mueller report (you know, that guy people were naming their dogs after)? Beto O’Rourke’s addle-brained beliefs. Who needs proof when you have a spoiled white grifter standing on a coffeeshop counter? https://t.co/Wn97a7UKrP

I want to know how.
How did Russia make Trump win the election? I need concrete details. Don't tell me 'FB memes' and a blanket, 'Trump had ties to Russia'.
I want goddamned verifiable evidence that the reason Hillary lost is Russia. https://t.co/ISH5isaZgp

The guy who eats dirt? The guy that thinks the world is ending in 12 years? The guy who apologized for being white? Anyone who takes this guy seriously needs their heads examined.

My sources are telling me O'Rourke colluded with the Russians.

And if course, you followed that up by asking if he'd respect the outcomes of any investigations under his theoretical presidency, right?#journalism

I'll tell you what really happened on 2016 .. People voted for Trump … Trump won. I can't stand trump … but denying the truth doesn't fix anything.

True story. And we’ll have another election in 2020. O’Rourke might even make it past the primaries.
