Democrats have got what they wanted. A special counsel to investigate the to-date evidenceless charge that Donald Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to deny Hillary Clinton the presidency.
Now read what Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) just told us:
“I don’t know what caused the appointment. I haven’t seen any evidence of a crime yet. The bottom line is I respect the decision, but this pretty much shuts Congress down. Democrats, you got what you wanted. You got a special counsel. Now we’ll just move on. We’re not prosecutors.”
“There’s a new front opening here. I have reason to believe that there are emails between Clinton campaign officials, democratic operatives to the Department of Justice regarding the Clinton email investigation that happened on Obama’s watch. I have reason to believe those emails exist.
I’m on the Judiciary Committee. And I think it’s important that the Judiciary Committee be given any emails that were directed to the Department of Justice by Clinton campaign officials or operatives because we have jurisdiction over the Department of Justice.”
A question for the Democrats: now that you got your special counsel, to investigate an evidenceless charge against Trump & Co. – a counsel, Former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who, if there is no evidence to support these claims, will have the integrity and guts to say so…
…what happens when evidence – real evidence, unlike the Russia/Trump fantasy – is brought regarding Hillary Clinton’s email scandal?
What happens when Republicans demand a special counsel investigate that, to see who may have broken the law and, if so, what punishment should be meted out? Who will be called. Who will be involved?
What goes around, comes around. That’s a reality which, I suspect, you weren’t especially worried about when you “knew” it would be Madame President for the next four years.
I wonder how this will play out. I’ll bet you do too.
