69% think Congress ought to investigate the origins of the Justice Department's inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, including 76% of Democrats, 69% of independents and 62% of Republicans.

A new poll from CNN is bad news for Obama and the Democratic Party. With the Mueller report complete and the Russian collusion narrative collapsed, Americans seem ready to move on.

“The American public increasingly feels that Democrats in Congress are going too far in investigating the President,” CNN reports. “44% say Democrats are doing too much on that score, up from 38% saying so in March. That shift stems largely from independents, 46% of whom now say congressional Democrats are going too far.” And that was before Democrats wasted a whole day moaning and groaning about Attorney General William Barr’s memo about the Mueller report, which Robert Mueller told Barr was accurate.


The people have spoken, democrats.

Congress doing an investigation????

I don't think so. We don't need any more preening for the cameras or alternating between sane and deranged questioners or time limits for questions or the need to go into executive session when we get to the juicy parts. Hell, congress doesn't control any swap teams. What if we need a Roger Stone style raid on someone.

I think the DOJ under Barr can and will do a fine job.

From Barr's Senate Judiciary hearing appearance

Blumenthal: Were there notes taken at your meeting with Mueller?

Barr: Yes.

Blumenthal: Will you provide these notes to this committee?

Barr: No.

Blumenthal: <silence>

bighairymike: Snork!!!

Yes but the American people need to know what led up to the Russiagate investigation.
Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce & Nelly Ohr, James Rybicki, James Baker, Sally Yates, & Brennan & Clapper roles have to be investigated. The firing & resignation of many of the above is insufficient punishment for their desire to bring down the Trump presidency under false manufactured information.

The Mueller report indicated that the Obama administration knew about Russian meddling in 2014. Yet they did little or nothing. I believe the American people should know about that factoid.

I agree with you. I was just suggesting that Barr and the DOJ will complete the many investigations more thoroughly, faster, and without all the meaningless drama of congressional hearings. We will learn the particulars as parties are indicted and pass through their resulting court appearances.

Dozens of crimes by Trump and company, which is why there were dozens of indictments.

Actually, it was dozens of crimes committed by dozens of Russians....the same dozens of Russians that would have been indicted if Clinton would have won the election and the same dozens of Russians that were carrying out their spying operations during the Obama Administration, when little was being done to stop dozens of them.

If Russiagate proceeds, who knows....there may be dozens of indictments of US citizens employed, or formerly employed, at the highest levels of US Government Agencies hired, initially...dozens of them.... by the Obama administration.

We'll see.

Dozens of crimes ALLEGEDLY committed by dozens of Russians... some of whom turned out to not exist... and in at least one instance an attorney representing the Russians named in one very-public indictment showed up at court to demand a swift trial, and what he got was the indictment swiftly disappearing from (at least) the newspapers.

Here's the reality:

The Mueller investigation was authorized to look into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

NOBODY connected to the Trump campaign was indicted for ANYTHING relating to this alleged collusion, or to obstruction of the investigation of alleged collusion. Not one person.

For that matter, no plausible motive has been offered for the Russian government to interfere in a manner intended to aid Trump or weaken Clinton. Whereas it's pretty easy to find plausible reasons why they would prefer Clinton over Trump.

And there is evidence of collusion between the Clinton campaign and Russians, and of obstruction of justice by FBI and other investigators. The investigation here is still in progress, and the Democrats are desperately trying to get it stopped.

You really need to start using better sources of information. The ones you are using are taking advantage of your ignorance and blindness.

You're lying, as usual. There have been plenty of indictments, and the Mueller report recommends indicting Trump when he leaves office.

Anyone remember Rosemary Woods and the missing tapes?

Sometimes perspectives are really needed.
