The Department of Justice’s Russia investigation headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is said to be close to closing up shop, though we’ve had that for months and we’re still waiting on a report. So far, there is zero evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, the unicorn the Left is hoping to physically take a hold of in order to impeach the president. They’re still seething over their 2016 election loss. They hate President Trump. And that animus extends into the liberal media who has been astoundingly wrong in their coverage of this story. There have been so many so-called bombshells that have turned out to be nothing burgers. It’s hard to count them all. The latest is BuzzFeed’s recent trip-up over ex-personal attorney Michael Cohen, who they say was directed to lie to Congress about a Russian real estate deal by President Trump. That story was discredited…by the Mueller investigation. And yet, even when this investigation ends, it won’t stop there. House Democrats are already planning another wild goose chase into Russia and the president (via Axios) [emphasis mine]:

Mueller is just the beginning. House Democrats plan a vast probe of President Trump and Russia — with a heavy focus on money laundering — that will include multiple committees and dramatic public hearings, and could last into 2020.

The state of play: The aggressive plans were outlined yesterday by a Democratic member of Congress at a roundtable for Washington reporters. The member said Congress plans interviews with new witnesses, and may go back to earlier witnesses who "stonewalled" under the Republican majority.

Why it matters: The reporters, many of them steeped in the special counsel's investigation, came away realizing that House Dems don't plan to depend on Robert Mueller for the last word on interference in the 2016 election.

[…]

At least three committees are already involved: The House Intelligence Committee is taking the lead, coordinating with House Financial Services on money-laundering questions and with House Foreign Affairs on Russia.

Democrats are considering ways to uncover what was said in a Trump private meeting with Putin, "whether that's subpoenaing the notes or subpoenaing the interpreter or other steps."


As we’ve said for months, impeachment is the end game no matter what. You’ve known that as well. Presumably, from the beginning, they hoped that Mueller or the congressional investigation into alleged Trump-Russia collusion would find something, but after two years—nothing has been found. The Senate Intelligence Committee said there was no evidence of a Trump-Russia conspiracy, though Democrats disagreed with that phrasing, they haven’t come up with any evidence to suggest that the Kremlin and the Trump team colluded to tilt the election. The liberal media’s fallback is that Trump had some bad people in his orbit who were indicted...mostly on crimes that were unrelated ad predated the 2016 election. Who cares then? 

This game won’t stop until they “impeach the mother**ker.”
