As painfully obvious as it is that there is nothing to the Trump/Russian collusion fairy tale, with not a shred of evidence having been presented by anyone, anywhere, there are still a fair number of assclowns inside the beltway who insist that the investigations should continue, and some of those assclowns are
How do you investigate nothing? How do you investigate that which has been investigated numerous times and dropped for lack of evidence? What the hell is the matter with these people?
According to the New York Post, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel called for Congress Sunday to end any investigations into the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia.
“That needs to stop,” McDaniel told “Fox News Sunday.”
Republicans control both the House and Senate and are leading the Russia investigations among three major committees: House and Senate Intelligence Committees and the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“This is a fishing expedition,” McDaniel said. “I’m calling for an end to the investigations about President Trump’s campaign colluding with the Russians. There’s been no evidence of it. I don’t think that should continue.”
Unlike Newt Gingrich who has urged Republicans to “abolish” the special investigation, McDaniel didn’t call for for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to stop. But she urged his probe to end “quickly.”
But the leader of one of the congressional investigations, Sen. Lindsey Graham, said the RNC needs to back off.

Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI), who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said it’s not “appropriate” for McDaniel to call for an end of a bipartisan investigation.
Unlike Mueller, Congress has an additional mission to identify how Russia meddled in the election and potentially pass laws to safeguard elections in the future.
“We have a separate obligation,” Reed said.
McDaniel’s demands reflect a greater effort by the RNC to step up its defense of Trump. McDaniel assembled a war room and social media team to push back against former FBI
Director James Comey’s testimony Thursday and to discredit his allegations against Trump.
“We support the president 100 percent,” McDaniel said.
Meanwhile, one of Trump’s lawyers, Jay Sekulow, wouldn’t rule out the president shutting down Mueller’s investigation completely.
“Will the president promise not to interfere, not attempt at any time to order the deputy attorney general to fire Robert Mueller?,” ABC’s “This Week” anchor George Stephanopoulos asked.
“Look, the president of the United States, as we all know, is a unitary executive,” Sekulow replied. “But the president is going to seek the advice of his counsel and inside the government as well as outside. And I’m not going to speculate on what he will or will not do.”
