LISA BOOTHE (CO-HOST: So, David, Mueller found no collusion. Senator -- Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave a floor speech saying "case closed," so why isn't this closed for Senator Richard Burr? 

DAVID WEBB (FOX NATION HOST): I have no idea. When did -- why doesn't Richard Burr just come out as a Democrat? Let's call it what it is. If you look at his history, this is someone who clearly falls more along the liberal line than the conservative line. Susan Collins, I don't know. Maybe she's searching for relevance. But you have a report. Maybe they should give him a copy of Mueller report for dummies to read, because it was laid out. Remember what William Barr said: no collusion by Trump, any member of his campaign, or no American. That is a finite statement. It takes a little while to read 400 pages, but apparently Senate intelligence staffers are not reading and giving the right briefs. This is politics, this is going after Trump which Burr wants to constantly do. It's not his first action, it's not his last.
