The Republican coverup for Trump just got much worse

House Republicans may have the power to prevent important facts about President Trump and Russia from coming to public light. But hereís what they donít have the power to do: prevent important facts about their own conduct on Trumpís behalf from coming to public light.

<snip>

In an interview with me this morning, Rep. Adam B. Schiff ó the ranking Democrat on the Intel Committee ó confirmed that Democrats will issue a minority report that will seek to rebut the GOP conclusions.

But hereís the real point to understand about this minority report: It will detail all the investigative avenues that House Republicans declined to take ó the interviews that they didnít conduct, and the leads that they didnít try to chase down and verify. And Schiff confirmed that the report will include new facts ó ones that have not been made public yet ó that Republicans didnít permit to influence their conclusions.

ďThereís no way for them to reach the conclusions that they want to start with unless they ignore or mischaracterize what weíve been able to learn,Ē Schiff said, adding that the minority report would also ďset out the investigative steps that were never taken to answer further questions about the Russians and the Trump campaignís conduct.Ē

15. As the Russiacans, have abandoned those that pay the salaries

it is more important now than ever to identify all Russiacins that have taken money from Russia while on the payroll of the unUnited States Of America. The specific Russiacan members of the House Intelligence Committee should be immediately impeached for for their obvious and intentional traitorous behavior.

Further, Paul Ryan and Bitch McConnell should be subpoena to appear immediately before Mueller and Co.

Taking back the House starts TODAY in PA-18.

Then YOU, Rep. Schiff, will be the Chairman of The House Intelligence Committee and let the 'freakin subpoenas FLY!

CNN said that if the committee continued it may have screwed up some of the interviews and info that Mueller needs to complete his investigation.

38. Yes. Good grief. You know, every week new information

will prove their "report" phony.

I don't get it. Rep. Schiff said they lost their way. I guess probably none of them woke up one morning deciding to betray their country, to be people they never saw themselves as, doing things they couldn't imagine doing. Just followed orders and here they are? Beached without orders? Hoping for a "miracle" on November 6 to create Fortress DC for them?

CNN: "After the House intelligence committee announced it was shutting down its probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, a Republican who sits on it said he believes the committee has lost its credibility.

"We have gone completely off the rails, and now we're basically a political forum for people to leak information to drive the day's news," GOP Rep. Tom Rooney said during an interview on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront."

39. Many of the Dems in both chambers were calling for a non partisan,

independent commission last June and then we got Mueller who could still be fired! Reps in the House and Senate even wrote bills/legislation but McConnell and Ryan shelved it. This was one of the rallies I went to in the past 18 months...calling for this. I still have my protest sign. If the Dems win in the midterms the ones on the House Intel Com. said that they will televise the interviews and make it transparent for a start. Maybe they will also finally get the independent Commission (like there was for 911) that we need...one that can't be derailed by the traitors/GOP or fired by the fucking moron.

42. One reason some people stonewalled the Nunes committee but answered all Mueller's questions

is probably because they knew any information they gave Nunes would be immediately leaked to Trump.

The GOP is a band of criminal traitors.
When we get through this attempt to overthrow our government, I want to see every single god damned last one of them thrown from office and dragged out in cuffs and doing time. Don't put up with ANYMORE bull shit, Democratic party. It's gone WAY to far this time.

16. note NYT link in article

From the article:

The House GOP decision to end the probe is being widely portrayed in the press (as always) as the result of partisan fighting. Some news accounts have repeated with a straight face the idea that House Republicans are ending the investigation out of frustration with Democratic efforts to use the probe for political purposes.


The "Some news accounts" links to the NYT.
It's bothsiderism for eyeballs all over again.
There really is a difference between politics and criminal obstruction of justice. Guess the NYT doesn't know that. Or thinks there's more money in not admitting it.

The repug voters are complicit in this treasonous and corrupt administration.

A vote for a repuKKKe is a vote of support for this nightmare we are living through today. SHAME on all of them...every last one.

21. Now THAT'S talking turkey!

GOPers never intended to investigate anything. Only Rep. Rooney is making sense among Republicans. Think about that for a minute. GOPers just lied, in unison, to preserve Russia's place in US government. Only ONE Republican is able to pull himself away from Putin and Trumpy' grip long enough to talk common sense. Only ONE.

Ever wonder why Nunes admitted he didn't read the underlying documents for the infamous "memo"? He lost his top security clearance! Now he closed down the investigation....who could have guessed.

are we in the middle of a coup by Trump with a group of accomplices in positions of power? Is this Germany in the 1930s all over again?

I can't list the things that are going on that are wrong and horrible...too many to list. Things most Americans don't want.

I'm very scared that they can't be stopped.
