Former special prosecutor Ken Starr broke Chris Cuomo’s spirit when he said he didn’t think there was any proof of collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign, Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day.”

“I think that the indictment almost two weeks ago of the 13 Russian nationals and three companies suggests there was no collusion,” Starr said. “Because the Russians developed this enormous operation out of St. Petersburg and sent operatives into the United States to sow discord and spend millions of dollars. They didn’t collude with anyone.”

Cuomo couldn’t let the point go and had to chime in to say collusion was still a possibility. “But manifesting one tool does not exclude the possibility of others,” Cuomo said.

“Absolutely,” Starr replied. “I’m not over-arguing the point, I’m just saying it suggests there’s not a hint in that 40 page indictment that there was any collusion.”

Starr said it was incumbent upon the Department of Justice to find out if there was collusion and to be responsible for reining special counsel Robert Mueller in if he loses sight of his mandate.

“The American people, I think, want to know was there collusion. Let’s get that answered, would be my sense if I was the Justice Department,” Starr concluded. “My sense would be, but I don’t have all the facts — Bob, I love you, but let’s just stay focused on what the issue is. And that’s collusion in the campaign.”
