As if nearly 3,000 subpoenas and 500 search warrants wasn’t enough, now even a House Judiciary Committee hearing featuring former special counsel Robert Mueller has failed to establish a collusion link between President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russian operatives.
Nevertheless, Mueller’s testimony glaringly lacked a key piece of information — familiarity with Fusion GPS, the Democrat-funded opposition research outfit that relied on a British spy’s gathering of false Trump-related Russian intelligence.
“I’m not familiar with that,” said Mueller, when asked by Ohio U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot, a Republican committee member, about the research firm’s well-documented actions and connections to the failed presidential campaign of Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Massachusetts Republican Party Chairman Jim Lyons pointed to last week’s overwhelming House vote to table the launching of impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
Six out of the Massachusetts’ nine U.S. representatives, including James McGovern, Lori Trahan, Joseph Kennedy III, Katherine Clark, Seth Moulton, and Ayanna Pressley, voted to keep the radical measure alive.
“These Democrats owe President Trump an apology, as today’s hearings were a disaster for them,” Lyon said. “The collusion narrative has collapsed spectacularly, and these members of our Massachusetts Congressional delegation are refusing to admit it.”
Lyons said he is awaiting the results of a separate investigation being conducted by Connecticut U.S. District Attorney John Durham. Durham has been tasked with investigating the origins of the Russian collusion probe.
“The collusion narrative will boomerang back to the Democrats, who in fact worked with foreign operatives such as Christopher Steele ,” Lyons said of Durham’s investigation. “I look forward to seeing how our all-Democratic Massachusetts Congressional delegation responds when those findings are released.”
