Today it was announced that the Trump-Russia investigation run by the House Intelligence Committee will wrap up its investigation with the conclusion that there was no collusion by the Donald Trump campaign with the Russians in the 2016 election or thereafter. Congressman Adam Schiff fervently tried to make this probe an honest and transparent one, to achieve a true outcome for the American people. Schiff was just outnumbered by the immorality and combined deviance of Paul Ryan, Devin Nunes and a few other complicit GOP House members who hitched their wagons to the greed of Donald Trump and his corrupt agenda.
Let’s face it, this Trump-Russia investigation run by the House Intelligence Committee was a sham from day one. It was buffoonery, a mock exercise of futility and a complete waste of time. Even the witnesses didn’t take this investigation seriously. Steve Bannon and Hope Hicks, who have each recently had a falling-out with Donald Trump, refused to answer questions put to them, daring the committee to hold them in contempt. The one good thing this investigation did do was to expose some corrupt Republican Congressmen to investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
The House Intel Committee investigation findings into the Russian probe are meaningless. It was a tailor-made report aimed at pleasing one person, who happens to occupy The White House. This committee made absolutely no effort to scrutinize Trump’s taxes, bank records and his businesses. There was no effort at all to follow the money around Trump, which is how you determine if nefarious acts have been committed, and what Robert Mueller does so effectively. The House Intel Committee, and the Senate too, have yet to force Trump to abide by the Emoluments Clause, which he has been in violation of since January 20, 2017.
There are still multiple ongoing Trump-Russia investigations that will have a major impact on America. The Special Counsel investigation will deliver, and already has delivered, a multitude of indictments. When all is said and done, Mueller and his team of experts in every area of criminal law, will be indicting Donald Trump, his criminal family and many politicians, for their involvement in the Trump-Russia scandal and/or coverup. — Frank V.
