All this silly back and forth over the Russian influence over our elections and some of the players in that election may soon come to a head….
After screaming and yelling for some sort of investigation into the Russia thing….it appears as if some wishes are about to be answered….at least in the House of Representatives….
The House is moving forward with an investigation into Russia’s alleged attempts to tamper with the US election, scheduling the first public hearing on the matter for March 20, Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes announced. FBI Director James Comey, National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers, former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former Attorney General Sally Yates have been invited to testify, CNN reports.
Nunes also told reporters he has not seen any evidence to support President Trump’s accusation that Obama wiretapped him, but that his panel will investigate the allegations, Reuters reports. On the Senate side, Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr told CNN Tuesday that he was not ruling out the possibility his panel would also look into Trump’s allegations. “We’re going to go anywhere there is intelligence or facts that send us,” he said. “So I’m not going to limit it one way or the other. But we don’t have anything today that would send us in that direction, but that’s not to say that we might not find something.”
The only question that needs answering now is….is this a show trial or will it be a real search for answers?
