What do the Mueller indictments say about President Donald Trump and collusion with the Russians? A roundup of editorials Tuesday takes a look at the issue.
Opinions from the Left:
From Bloomberg: Sure, the charges against Paul Manafort look bad, but in one sense, the president is correct – it’s not his problem.

From The New Yorker: The Manafort/Rick Gates indictments and the George Papadopoulos plea agreement don’t point to collusion, but they do point to another problem.
