The House Intel Committee just announced their initial findings in the Russia probe (see report below). They’re finally saying there was no collusion. The Russians interfered but didn’t favor Trump. It’s about time!
CNN potty mouth Phil Mudd wasn’t having it. He couldn’t believe the Republicans were finally saying what we’ve all know for over a year. It was pretty typical liberal behavior not to accept reality. Just like when Hillary lost, right? They’re still fighting that battle. Who knows when Hillary will stop talking about it. Just yesterday, she blamed white women for her loss.
Phil Mudd is known to be a drama queen on-air but he crossed the line with his comments:
The left is literally spitting mad…
Mudd said, “Can you tell me why? Why they say that? How the heck can they say they got to the bottom of this when there are still unanswered questions.”
Mudd also brought up the fact that Mueller is still on the prowl and insisted that the next election wouldn’t be protected:
“Their responsibility was not to represent party, Democrat or Republican, but to represent people. How do we protect the next election? The last 30 minutes, Wolf––you give me one sentence where somebody spoke about how they’re going to protect us instead of saying this is why the other party did something wrong. If this report were written on toilet paper, I wouldn’t stoop to wipe my ass with it. These people owe us more. They gave us less. That’s what I see, Wolf. That’s it.”
One witch hunt down…
President Donald Trump trumpeted the House Intelligence Committee’s report that it found “no evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians” in an all-caps Twitter post-Monday night.
“THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE HAS, AFTER A 14 MONTH LONG IN-DEPTH INVESTIGATION, FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION OR COORDINATION BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIA TO INFLUENCE THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION,” wrote Trump, reiterating the main finding from the panel’s 150-page draft report.

“We didn’t find any evidence of collusion and I don’t think [special counsel Robert Mueller] will either,” Texas Republican Rep. Mike Conaway, who led the bipartisan investigation, said on “Special Report.”
The committee’s investigation was based on four topics: Russian active measures against the 2016 U.S. election, the U.S. government’s response to the attack, links between Russians and the Trump and Clinton campaigns, and purported leaks of classified information.
“We believe we’ve got the information necessary to answer those for the American people,” Conaway said.
The report also noted that based on its investigation which lasted more than a year, the committee disagreed with the intelligence community’s assessment that Russian President Vladimir Putin had a “supposed preference” for then-candidate Donald Trump.
“We disagree with the Intelligence Community’s position that Putin favored Trump,” Conaway told Fox News. He said he had “no contact” with the White House during the probe.
The majority staff on the committee is expected to send the draft report to the minority staff, led by ranking member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., on Tuesday. Once the draft report is adopted by committee Democrats, the report will be submitted to the intelligence community for a declassification review, and following that process, it will be released to the public, officials said, though the timeline at this point is unknown.
“The report’s completion will signify the closure of one chapter in the Committee’s robust oversight of the threat posed by Moscow—which began well before the investigation and will continue thereafter,” Conaway said.
