This is a noun clause within another noun clause (名詞子句). Both are used to be an object (受詞). One is for "argue", and the other is for "understand".

In a complicated sentence like this, it is not a good idea to omit "that", otherwise, the sentence can be confusing. When the sentence is short, yes, you can, for example:
Everybody suggests (that) we act on his suggestion.

羽羽! If you are a beginner in learning English, I suggest you don't pay too much attention to these grammar terms. After all, knowing them or not will NOT prevent you from understanding the context of the sentence.

For a sentence like this, at the present time, you only need to know "noun clause" and "object".
However, if you are an advanced learner, yes, it is good idea to know them, so you have a better understanding of the sentence structure.

However, as a beginner, if you don't use it, even though you might know what the functions of "that" and "who" in this sentence are. You might NOT be able to apply it to other sentence.

In my last 4 sayings in opinion, I have purposely used "that" and "who" (got omitted) in my explanation, just to let you know that using it is more important than knowing it.
