I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was #neverTrump & #alwaysHillary.
– Congressman Steve King
It is important to note that at this late date we still keep our minds open on the Russia collusion bit. Putin is a crony and probably would have loved to have influenced our election. We are of course very (and justifiably) skeptical, but we remain open minded. However, things don’t look so good for Mueller and the FBI these days.
If the FBI undermining story turns out to be true, if the Russia narrative turns out to be a total ruse, and it is exposed for the country to see, I don’t know what the reaction will be. What will the never-Trumpers do? Apologize? I doubt it. They will just get more desperate. And what does THAT mean?
Several other GOP Congressmembers have weighed in. “I have read the memo,” tweeted Rep. Steve King (R-IA), adding “The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was #neverTrump & #alwaysHillary. #releasethememo.”
Along with the four-page memo, Congressional investigators learned from a new batch of text messages between anti-Trump FBI investigators that several individuals within the Department of Justice and the FBI may have come together in the “immediate aftermath” of the 2016 election to undermine President Trump, according to Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) who has reviewed the texts.
This is particularly interesting since the memo allegedly names Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein – who created Robert Mueller’s special counsel after former FBI Director James Comey was fired.
