House Republicans closed their investigation into the Trump-Russia collusion allegations Monday. The president has been completely vindicated. Representatives found absolutely no evidence of collusion.
Democrats, of course, are furious. They refuse to accept the Intelligence Committee’s conclusions and instead are clinging to the fantasy that President Trump and Russia’s Vladimir Putin collaborated during America’s last presidential election.
“We found no evidence of collusion, and so we found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings,” Rep. Mike Conaway, the head Republican in charge of the Russia investigation, said.
“We found no evidence of any collusion of anything people were actually doing other than taking a meeting they shouldn’t have taken or just inadvertently being in the same building.”
The collusion story was made-up by disgruntled Democrats after Hillary Clinton was destroyed by Trump. Their egos wouldn’t accept that they’d been wrong, so they invented reasons why Trump was president instead of Clinton.
“While the majority members of our committee have indicated for some time that they have been under great pressure to end the investigation, it is nonetheless another tragic milestone for this Congress, and represents yet another capitulation to the executive branch,” Rep. Adam Schiff, the leading Democrat on the Intelligence committee, said.
“By ending its oversight role in the only authorized investigation in the House, the Majority has placed the interests of protecting the President over protecting the country, and history will judge its actions harshly.”
Every angle of the Russia investigation is being pounded out. Special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation is still ongoing. Schiff’s complaint is baseless.
President Trump didn’t pressure the House into ending their investigation, the probe was closed because committee members felt that they had enough evidence to make a decision.
House Republicans deny the allegations of collusion but admit that Moscow meddled in the last election.
“Bottom line: Russians did commit active measures against our elections in ’16, and we think they’ll do that in the future,” Conaway said.
“It’s clear they sowed discord in our elections. … But we couldn’t establish the same conclusions the CIA did that they specifically wanted to help Trump.”
