Republicans are desperate to stop the Mueller investigation before the 2018 mid-terms.
A Republican Congressman just introduced a new amendment that would end funding for Bob Mueller’s investigation into Trump’s collusion with Russia. The amendment would end the investigation 180 days after it becomes law.
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is also trying to limit what the special counsel can look at. His amendment would prevent Mueller and his team from probing any “matters occurring before June 2015.” That means that any crimes that Trump and his campaign committed before he announced his presidential run would be off limits.
“The amendment was submitted as part of the upcoming spending package the lower chamber is expected to weigh after the congressional recess.”
If Republicans get their way they will end Mueller’s investigation before they really start campaigning for the 2018 mid-term elections. They know that Trump’s collusion with Russia is an anchor around their necks. And they are determined to stop the investigation before it takes them all down.
They just don’t get it. The facts in this case are going to come out one way or another. No matter what they do, the press is not going to stop digging. And the majority of the people in this country are determined to get to the truth.
Even if that means that the American people have to use Kickstarter to hire Mueller and fund the investigation ourselves.
