President Trump was accused of possible collision with the Russians since the day one of his presidency, or even before that. But despite a year of vast sources given to the special counsel Mueller no collision was proved.
Lawmakers together with the American people are becoming more and more impatient with the whole Russian investigation. They have finally realized the primary purpose of the investigation, to wither away all the efforts and bills that Trump must and should pass. As seen on Fox News, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) called the Russia collusion probe a “witch hunt” that Democrats want to use to avoid acknowledging the “poor candidacy” of Hillary Clinton.
He was asked whether he believed that Mueller’s investigation is getting in the way of legislative activity in the Capitol Hill. Which made the Senator place a critique on the Special Councel itself, by stating
“I think what you’re seeing is exactly why special prosecutor is a bad idea,” Sen. Paul said. “You know, they’re not doing anything with Russia. They’re trying to look at people’s taxes from a long time ago that have nothing to do with President Trump.”
Continuing that: “Their mission was to look at Russian collusion and now we’re looking at people’s tax returns,” Sen. Paul continued. “So really, this is a problem of special prosecutors. You give them millions of dollars, unlimited sort of ability to go after anything, and you’ll find that people are going to be prosecuted for stuff that has nothing to do with the original mandate of the prosecutor.”
Then he wondered whether the expanded Russian investigation is impacting the Congress’ ability to overpass some crucial things that Trump has previously promised during his presidential campaign such as: repealing Obamacare, strengthening the border, and passing tax reform, which the Congress is still unable to make Trump fulfill his greatest promises.
“I think it’s a distraction” Senator Paul asserted. “And I think the thing is that, you know, Democrats would have their way. And Hillary Clinton, they want to blame Russia for her failings as a candidate, for being a bad candidate. They will drag this on forever.
“What I’ve said is: investigate it. If there’s anything — good. But let’s find out and let’s bring it forward,” he continued. “But if not, let’s get it done with. Because the bottom line is we know Russia tries to influence our election. We also try to influence other countries’ elections. Everybody that can spy does spy. We should protect ourselves, but I don’t think President Trump had anything to do with … Russia.”
