Louisiana House Rep: ‘What Part of No Collusion is Hard to Understand?’

Rep. Ralph Abraham (R-La.) is ready to move on from the Russian “collusion” investigation.

One U.S. Representative from the state of Louisiana has heard enough from his Congressional colleagues on the subject of non-existent Russian “collusion.”

“What part of NO COLLUSION is hard to understand? The US is booming under [President Donald J. Trump] – imagine if people quit trying to undermine him and worked with him. And let me know when the investigation for Hillary’s collusion begins…” Rep. Ralph Abraham (R-La.) said on Twitter.

Abraham, who is an ardent Trump supporter and backed the president during the entire two-year investigation by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III, linked to an Axios piece about the Senate Intelligence Committee’s subpoena of Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.

The political establishment has not handled Mueller’s conclusion – that Trump did not collude with Russians or obstruct the subsequent investigation into the non-existent collusion – with grace. Rather, their response has been something of a meltdown, and they have refused to accept Mueller’s findings.

Their latest play has been to call for the impeachment of Attorney General William P. Barr over a four-page summary of the Mueller report which exonerated Trump, despite the fact that Barr made the redacted report public weeks later. They have since moved to hold Barr in contempt of Congress after he refused to testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee the day after testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Abraham, who is also running for Louisiana governor and attempting to oust an incumbent Democrat, recognizes the bizarre nature of the Russian “collusion” hysteria.

“I called the Mueller investigation a witch hunt & total waste of taxpayer dollars from the get-go. It’s always been political w/ Dems who can’t stand that they lost the election. You would think they would be grateful that there was no collusion but that doesn’t fit their agenda,” he said in April.

House Democrats Seeking to Restrict Attorney General Bill Barr From Any Travel Outside DC

Clownish.

House Democrats are seeking to ground Attorney General William Barr in Washington, D.C, by cutting off the

Democrats revealed the measure as a set of 12 goodies they intend to provide to the party’s liberal base in budget proceedings for fiscal year 2021. The DOJ budget allocation prevents the use of any federal funding “from supporting Attorney General travel outside the National Capital Region.

Democrats are citing Barr’s investigation of federal corruption and FBI misconduct targeting the Trump campaign, fabricating claims of a wide-ranging Russian plot in order to use federal power to monitor and spy upon the candidate. Barr has made fact-finding trips to Italy in order to get to the bottom of DOJ misconduct in the matter, which apparently arouses the ire of Democrats.

House Democrats are also seeking to compel the Attorney General to testify before the Judiciary Committee.

While these provisions are intended to force Attorney General Barr to respond to congressional oversight, it would also limit his ability to travel abroad playing detective on Trump conspiracy theories,” said Appropriations Committee spokesman Evan Hollander to the Washington Examiner.

It’s somewhat doubtful such a nakedly partisan measure will ultimately make it through the budget process, as a de facto restriction of the Attorney General to Washington D.C. would prevent oversight over the Department of Justice, one of the most important and largest departments of the federal government.

Perhaps Democrats will be inclined to up the ante when they don’t get what they want, and they’ll pass a new provision requiring Barr sit quietly in a small closet until his tenure as Attorney General is over.
