Grassley to hold hearings on ‘Russian interference’ no mention of sins of Obama clan for review


Interesting isn’t it. The GOP can’t get themselves together to repeal Obamacare, but they sure can pull themselves together to beat on Trump. We have the usual suspects. But let’s pile on. Senators prepare bill to block firing of special counsel – Chicago Tribune

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina is working on legislation that would block the firing of special counsels without judicial review. DemocratsSheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut said Thursday they are among the senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee who are working with Graham on the effort.

Oh, but that’s not enough. Grassley will pull out the Bazooka and hold hearings to try to nail Trump et al. No time for hearings on the zillions of illegal activity by the Obama clan, but plenty of time for Trump. Just wait until 2018. In one big last hooray, let us primary these sad representations of the GOP back to their home towns for keeps:

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is amping up the panel’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, weighing whether to issue subpoenas for Donald Trump Jr. and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Bloomberg News first reported Monday.

Grassley’s committee is conducting its probe in addition to the Senate Intelligence Committee and special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigations, which some– including Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn — have said they feel is inappropriate.

While the move has received some pushback, Grassley stands by his decision to push forward with the investigation alongside Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, arguing it’s their duty to look into whether there was any sort of obstruction of justice.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham praised Grassley’s efforts, saying he is loyal to the party but concerned with the greater good of the country.

    It tells us all we need to know about the establishment GOP. The ACLJ has uncovered huge news the last two days about collusion between the FBI, media, and Obama over the tarmac meeting and none of the GOP is interested.

    Grassley graduated from college in 1955; he continued on with an MA through 1956. He served in the state legislature 1959-1974, the US House 1975-1981, the US Senate since 1981. What has this bag of filth ever done except draw a federal paycheck? Makes me come away with a very dim view of Iowans.

        Honestly, Bunk, it’s not only lefties going after Trump….it’s getting very weird out there, but sadly, so much has been brought on himself by himself. If only he didn’t take the bait (imagine how ticked off and confused the hateful media’d be!?), if only he hadn’t had to mention classified info like Nikki Haley’s saying he did today, if only he realized thousands at his rallies does not mean his negative polls are wrong…I could go on. I believe the president of MX is playing on the fact that polls say Trump isn’t trustworthy and I think Putin’s doing it, too…they all will soon; saying they didn’t say things he said they did. Who are Americans who hate Trump (the majority) going to say, especially the media?? The rest of the world knows they’ll jump on any bandwagon against this president…and this is really dangerous for us, too…isn’t it…to go against US, basically.

        That man had a fabulous chance of great things; I think we all felt that on election night! HURRAH! yet….something is so badly wrong. I hoped Kelly would help but he’s obviously not checking DJT’s tweets, etc….DARN 😦
        Can Trump make up for six months of pretty bad behavior (tho he has done a LOT of good things, don’t get me wrong…and HE IS NOT HILLARY, which makes me SO HAPPY!)? I’m not sure. Do you think he could change while still being tough and righteous?

        Z– I doubt it is in his DNA to change. He is a man who has always been in charge. We may disagree but I put a lot of it on Sessions. He and his rightousness has no place in this blood sport. He should be putting the light every day on all of Clinton and Obama’s misdeeds and calling for a dozen grand juries. And no, he should never have resigned… do you think any of Obama’s AG would? No, they worked together.

    BILL TO BLOCK FIRING OF SPECIAL COUNSEL

    I’m not too sure they will need that BILL for at this time Mueller is defending himself of his past let’s say…”indiscretions”

    Perhaps he will just be forced to resign

      This corrupt slime bag Booker, being a negro, will be untouchable not unlike Obama. The lingering question is whether his homosexual leanings will work for or against him after all the sexually confused if not downright homosexual Obama had to take on a wife to further his political ambutions.

    In essence we have a triumvirate of the democrats, the media and the republicans strategizing to nueter The Trump administration. I believe it is naive to think 2018 will see the republican rats being primaries out. On the contrary. As a bloc, Republican voters will stay home knowing that electing republican majorities means squat and come the election the energized democrat voters who, along with the dead voters, the serial voters and the illegal voters, who together as a group outnumber voters on the right, will sweep into office a democrat majority in both houses. We will then see a beleaguered Donald Trump with a hostile House and Senate wait out his remaining months in office. Soon I will get off my ass and change my affiliation from republican to independent not that it matters here in New Jersey, the home of the next president Cory Booker. C’est domage….

      Sadly I agree with you… but I prefer going out in a blaze…taking out the scumbags in a primary then going home and sitting on my derriere. We will lose in the general, but can’t we at least give em hell in the primary. but wait… I almost forgot.. most states have open primaries I guess. I worked too long and hard to let them fade into the sunset..

      I predict upsets in the 2018-2020 elections. From what I have been reading, folks are just plum not having it anymore and have had enough. Let CA secede, let Chicago shoot itself, let Missouri punks fall, let Arizona have the Flake and the traitor, and so on. Enough…we don’t really live in a democracy…I have never ever seen it like this before. Until the folks revolt and stand up, nothing will change…but then again, the deep state is really showing us normal folks that our vote really doesn’t matter (and I need more coffee because I’m rambling and not make sense, lol).
