Watch: Senate Intel Chair Tells Democrats The Last Thing They Want To Hear About Russia Investigation
How long has the interminable Russia collusion investigation been going on?
Seems like forever.
But now after more than two years of this, the chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is saying that they have not found any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
From Daily Caller:
“If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don’t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia,” North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr told CBS News.
“If I can finish tomorrow, I would finish tomorrow,” said Burr, adding, “We know we’re getting to the bottom of the barrel because there’re not new questions that we’re searching for answers to.”
The Senate panel has conducted more than 200 witness interviews and reviewed hundreds of thousands of documents as part of an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The investigation, which has focused heavily on the collusion question, began in January 2017, alongside a parallel probe run out of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
The House Committee issued a report last year finding no collusion. Democrats though are trying to revive it now that they are in charge.
Barr’s remarks are his strongest words on the topic to this point.
So one has to wonder how long this can continue on, how much time and angst this fiction has cost Americans.
And when are they going to look at what kicked this all off, the Democratic effort to undermine the Trump campaign, pay for info that came from Russians and a foreign national, Christopher Steele and how that information was then weaponized by being given to the FBI to justify an investigation.
