(Now the fur’s gonna really start flying): GOP leaders back second special counsel
It’s not like everybody didn’t know this was coming. It was inevitable. And it brings up something that’s puzzled me for some time now and that is how the hell did the Dims think they could pull all this RUSSIA! nonsense off when the Repubbies had the White House and the Congress and the Senate? What was the plan Stan? Even after getting rid of Trump there was still Pence. Then if their fondest Menschkin dreams (delusions) came true and they got rid of Pence, that still left Ryan. How was this supposed to work?
I will probably NEVER be able to figure out what the point of all this was other than to draw attention away from The Clinton Creature’s and DNC/Obama administration shenanigans. But the truth is that this hare brained scheme was always a doomed effort from the very start.
GOP leaders back second special counsel
House GOP leaders are starting to come out in strong support of a second special counsel to investigate conservative allegations of bias and abuse at the FBI.
Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said Monday he backs the appointment of another special counsel to look at how law enforcement has handled the Russia probe. Scalise's statement echoed similar calls from Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) over the weekend.
The moves align the No. 2 and No. 3 House GOP leaders with President Trump, who could be a factor in a future leadership race between the two friendly rivals.
Neither Scalise nor McCarthy wants any daylight between themselves and Trump in the event Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) calls it quits after the November midterm elections.
Democrats argue the creation of a second investigation would be a smokescreen designed to shift criticism toward 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, whom Trump has repeatedly blamed for the instigation of the probe.
