It’s hard to believe we are still talking about this Mueller investigation and the Russia collusion hoax. How much longer is this charade going to go on? There was no collusion and if there was we’d no doubt have heard about it via a leak in the investigation after all this time. It’s an absolute joke. For some strange reason, some members of Congress are trying to push legislation that would protect Mueller from being fired.
From Washington Examiner:
Retiring Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said Sunday he supports attempts to tie his bill protecting special counsel Robert Mueller to spending legislation after announcing last week he would oppose President Trump’s judicial nominations until his initiative is considered by the Senate.
“I would sure like to see it as part of the spending plan because that will make it law,” Flake said during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “The first step has to be having this bill that has already passed the Judiciary Committee and is awaiting action on the floor of the Senate, to have that pass. It will pass with a pretty big majority. If we could do that first, there’s a far greater likelihood that it will be attached to the spending bill.”
Flake is one of several senators, most of them Democrats, who have expressed concerns about how Trump forcing the resignation of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions will have implications for Mueller’s federal Russia investigation. They have expressed doubts about acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, who has been vocal in his criticism of the Mueller probe, suggesting it has breached its scope and should have its funding cut.
What a waste of time.
If Congress really wants to make a difference in the lives of the American people they should take Diamond & Silk’s advice.
There’s a good idea.
Unfortunately, it’s very unlikely Democrats in the House will ever go along with that suggestion.
