Republicans have sunk to another level of disgrace. Just when you think Republicans can’t get any more vile, they always manage to prove you wrong. The latest GOP stunt to embarrass every American is their attempts to hinder Mueller’s investigation into President Trump. Rep. Ron DeSantis from Florida is attaching this amendment to a government spending bill that would theoretically end Mueller’s investigation and prevent him from looking into anything that transpired before June 2015. Trump announced his bid for the presidency in that dark month.
Republicans must contend that they have no choice. When it is unveiled that President Trump is actually a Russian spy, the republican party will be finished. How many times can a party look the voter right in the eye and lie and deceive, and still get their vote? In their defense, when Junior’s lies put America in a war and a depression, I figured they were done then. Fabricating documents that trick a nation into going to war, is a crime a million times worse than anything Trump will do. Still, they got over it. They were so busy huffing and puffing over Benghazi or Reverend Wright, they didn’t even think twice about the thousands of young Americans whose lives were taken so VP Chenies company could make a shit load of money. Those uneducated voters keep getting the wool placed over their eyes. Look at the past two Republican presidents!!!! How can America keep electing these crooks! When will we stop!
In a statement, Rep. Desantis justified his amendment.
“Congress should use its spending power to clarify the scope and limit the duration of this investigation. (Deputy Attorney General) Rosenstein has said that the DOJ doesn’t conduct fishing expeditions; the corollary to this admonition should be that Congress will not fund a fishing expedition,” DeSantis said in a statement.
“My amendment basically says, look, this thing needs to be limited to the campaign and Russia and it needs to have an end date,” DeSantis said. “If you haven’t produced evidence of a crime, after almost two years of investigating, because Comey investigated for a year before Mueller was appointed, then at some point we have to move on with the American people’s business.” Newsmax
Doesn’t he want a resolution? If the president is innocent, of course, he would want the investigation to prove that. If the president is guilty, he should be even more willing to wrap it up quickly and limit the damage Trump will inflict on America. The last thing any Republican politician should want is to become an accomplice by trying to cover up a crime.
Anyway, if Trump fired Mueller, or his investigation was hindered in any capacity, top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff(Calif.), said
“If President [Trump] fired Bob Mueller, Congress would immediately re-establish independent counsel and appoint Bob Mueller,” Schiff tweeted Monday evening. “Don’t waste our time.” TheHill
Hence, republicans can write up all the bills that they want, but it is nothing more than fantasy – fodder for their base. As Schiff says their playground threats are a waste of time. There is no way to stifle Mueller’s investigation.
Republicans know that Mueller’s investigation will finally be the last nail in the Republican coffin. Look at all the Fox News articles about Mueller’s investigation.
Imagine you were being spoon fed these bogus news stories day in and day out. It should be no shock that Republicans have such augmented view of politics. Luckily for Republicans, a good percentage of Fox viewers ONLY watch Fox. You gotta wonder what their reaction will be when their false idol is convicted of treason. There are no Democrats in Washington, so they won’t be able to blame them. Their own party will be the judge, jury, and executioner.
