No Collusion (GOP SAYS)

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 14, 2018

         IT’S OVER. EXCEPT IT ISN’T OVER.

         THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE HAS FINISHED ITS INVESTIGATION OF RUSSIAN MEDDLING IN THE 2016 ELECTION AND TO NO ONE’S SURPRISE (EXCEPT DEMOCRATS), REPUBLICAN MEMBERS CONCLUDED THERE WAS NO COLLUSION OR COORDINATION BETWEEN DONALD TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN AND THE KREMLIN.

         DEMOCRATS, OF COURSE, ARE CALLING THE REPORT A “WHITEWASH” AND CLAIMING THE INVESTIGATION HAS ENDED TOO QUICKLY. THEY WANT THE ISSUE TO REMAIN OPEN UNTIL THE NOVEMBER ELECTION. THIS IS HOW THE GAME IS PLAYED IN WASHINGTON. FACTS DON’T MATTER; ONLY POLITICAL POWER MATTERS.

         ONE OF THE LEADERS OF THE INVESTIGATION, TEXAS REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN MICHAEL CONAWAY, SAID: “THE BOTTOM LINE – THE RUSSIANS DID COMMIT ACTIVE MEASURES AGAINST OUR ELECTION IN 2016 AND WE THINK THEY WILL DO THAT IN THE FUTURE.” BUT, HE SAID, THEY DID NOT CHANGE THE OUTCOME. HILLARY CLINTON WOULD HAVE LOST ANYWAY.

         MEANWHILE, HILLARY HAS BEEN IN INDIA DENOUNCING HER OWN COUNTRY AS RACIST AND MYSOGINIST. SHE CAN’T GET OVER IT. IT IS HER RELIGION. SHE THINKS SHE WAS ENTITLED AFTER ALL SHE TOLERATED WITH BILL’S AFFAIRS. IT’S SAD TO WATCH. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
