The House Intelligence Committee has remained committed to pouring over the findings of the Mueller report. On Wednesday morning, the committee kicked off an open hearing with testimony from two former counter-intelligence officials from the FBI.
The hearing is the first in a string of planned hearings on the outcome of the report. Critics have said this is just another attempt by the Democrats to push the Russia collusion narrative despite the former special counsel finding no evidence to substantiate those claims.
Ranking committee member Devin Nunes called out Democrat’s inability to let go of the “collusion delusion” despite the accusations being exposed as a hoax.
“The entire scheme was has no imploded and the collusion accusation has become exposed as a hoax,” he stated. “One would think that the Democrats would simply apologize and get back to lawmaking and oversight, but it’s clear they couldn’t stop this grotesque spectacle even if they wanted to…the collusion hoax now defines the Democratic Party.”
Nunes went on to say Democrats have abandoned their lawmaking duties entirely, and are only capable of continuously attacking the administration.
