17. This lends credence to the theory that the House of Rep. DID thwart the House investigation.

It was very noticeable that the House of Rep. investigation was being handled much differently from the Senate's.

NOW we know that Trump is mad at McConnell for not protecting him (thwarting the investigation), which means that the Senate IS conducting a real investigation of sorts (maybe). But the House, with the chairman of the investigation committee Nunes making night trips to the White House carrying papers, didn't seem to be getting anything done. Dragging dragging dragging.

Seems like Trump was able to obstruct the investigation in the House of Rep., to me.
