Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) discusses why he believes that Democrats will continue to attack President Trump despite Attorney General William Barr’s claim that the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia during the 2016 election. Sen. Rounds also discusses whether Democrats will work with Republicans on infrastructure reform.

However, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s announcement that the investigation is complete and he will not pursue any further indictments does not mean the president's critics are satisfied.

"I think our colleagues on the other side of the aisle decided a long time ago that as the Mueller investigation moved forward, they figured there was a very high percentage that there would be some sort of a determination of collusion," Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD) said on FOXBusiness' “Bulls & Bears” Monday. “I think now they're going to have to go to Plan B. And I don't think Plan B says anything like let's just work on the other stuff. I think Plan B for them is let's continue the investigation, let's be critical of the report.”
