RNC Chairwoman: It's Time to Put An End to Trump-Russia Investigations

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel on Sunday called for an end to investigations into alleged Trump campaign collusion with Russia.

“This needs to stop,” she said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“This is a fishing expedition,” she added. “I’m calling for an end to the investigations about ... President Trump’s campaign colluding with the Russians. There’s been no evidence of it. I don’t think that should continue.”

Commenting on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, McDaniel said it should end “quickly.”



Russia investigations are underway among the House and Senate Intelligence Committees and the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Some lawmakers were quick to push back against McDaniel’s call.

Sen. Lindsey Graham said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that it’s none of McDaniel’s “business. 

“We're going to do what we think is best,” he said.

 Democratic Sen. Jack Reed said it’s not “appropriate” for her to have made those remarks about a bipartisan investigation.
