The investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia has been a disaster.
The fake news investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller hasn’t brought forward anything proving President Trump’s involvement.
And one surprising Democrat just dropped one piece of information that Robert Mueller didn’t want to hear.
When being interviewed by CNN, Connecticut Rep. Jim Himes, who served on the House Intelligence Committee, made a startling admission.
The exchange that lasted less than a minute revealed a lot about how the investigation is really going.
And it doesn’t seem to be doing too well.
When he was asked if he’d seen any evidence during the 11-month investigation run by the Committee he is in, his answer suggests that he has not.
In response to that question he answered:
“You know, I’m not sure I’ve seen a lot that the American people aren’t already aware of.”
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“A Democratic member of the House Intelligence Committee made a surprise admission on Thursday about the findings of the panel’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
“You know, I’m not sure I’ve seen a lot that the American people aren’t already aware of,” Connecticut Rep. Jim Himes said during an interview on CNN’s “New Day.”
Himes had been asked whether he has seen any evidence during the committee’s 11-month investigation of any criminal activity on the part of the Trump campaign.
The lawmaker’s response suggested that he has not.
The House Intelligence Committee is one of three Congressional panels investigating Russian meddling in the presidential campaign. But the House probe is perhaps the most contentious.
Republicans and Democrats on the committee have engaged in a public back-and-forth over the direction of the investigation.
Republicans, led by California Rep. Devin Nunes, have focused on opposition research firm Fusion GPS and the anti-Trump dossier it commissioned on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Democrats, led by California Rep. Adam Schiff, have focused on accusing Republicans of trying to undermine the FBI, Justice Department and Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is also investigating Russian interference.”
So, in other words, he hasn’t seen anything incriminating the President, or his campaign, for colluding with Russia.
The strongest evidence they have of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia is the June 9th meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a group of Russian lobbyists at Trump Tower.
As we now know, nothing of substance came from that meeting.
Despite that, the Democrats have still continually pointed to that meeting as proof in their investigation.
Rep. Himes’ answer is just more proof they have nothing on President Trump, but that doesn’t seem to matter to the left anyway.
