Democrats on the Senate intel panel apparently are despairing that they have found no evidence of Russian-Trump collusion about the election.
On the other hand, there now have been questions raised about Obama administration surveillance on the Trump campaign during the election.
President Donald Trump asked Congress to look into the surveillance and House intel panel agreed to add it to the Russian probe investigation.
So what do we hear now?
Oops, Democrats may want to pull out of the House intel panel on the Russia probe if they don’t feel like they’re going to get what they want.
From Washington Examiner:
“I’m not going to be part of a dog-and-pony show that is not a serious effort to do an investigation, because this is really serious,” Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., told the New York Times in a report published Saturday.
Speier said that all nine of the committee’s Democrats would be willing to pull their support “under certain circumstances.”
Translation: if they can’t hang anything on Trump or his aides, but if panel might find Democratic wrongdoing, let’s try to end the panel’s inquiry.
But it’s a bit late, can’t stop inquiry into the surveillance question now.
